The BFG - 117min - PG

Roald Dahl is a master storyteller.  It is challenging to put some of this kid shows on screen without changing something or losing sight of the spirit of the story. I have seen a few Dr. Seuss books ruined by the big screen.  I am looking at you Cat in the Hat. This one transitioned well. I think it helps when you have people who love and understand the story working to make it a film worthy of the story. Read my full review here.

The Legend of Tarzan

The Legend of Tarzan  - 110 min - PG13

This is a reintroduction of this classic tale to the modern age. Does it hold up to the dramatic change in tone and a more modern sensibility? For the most part, it does. Some of the less savory views of the original material have been brought up to date. 

Margo Robbie is a force to be reconded with, Jane is no wilting flower in this retelling.  Read my review here on Balckflix

Triple 9

Triple 9  - 115 - R

This is a perfect example of how to make a film, but it lacks any sort of spirit. Technically all the right boxes were checked however it just missed the mark. This move will be quickly forgotten. Read my full review here.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - 108min - PG13

This movie is better than it should have been. I like Pride and Prejudice, and I like Zombies so why not combine the two?  It does a great job of mixing the two completely different styles of movies. Read my Review here.

13 Hours

13 Hours - 142min - R

I was not looking forward to this movie, I am not a Michael Bay fan.  But this was only produced by him, so his over the top action and loud explosions didn't dominate the screen. I was also pleased this was not a Right Wing rant but more of a focus on the people who were in the center of that conflict and deserve to be remembered.
