Yes, Cozy Chicks Friends and Readers, I know it's only been 2 weeks since I last posted about current movies. But several good movies have come out that I wanted to tell you about. I'll remind you, Friends and Readers, I do NOT go to see horror or Really Scary Movies. So, if those are your favorites, well. . .you'll have to read someone else's reviews. :) The previews are scary enough before the Feature Movie comes on.
THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE---This is a real-life story that took place during World
War II in Warsaw, Poland. The Warsaw zookeeper and his wife actually covertly worked with the Resistance and began stealthily taking Jews out of the Warsaw Ghetto and hiding them in the basement of their home at the Warsaw Zoo until the zookeeper could hide them in his truck (under collected trash) and drive them out of Warsaw to escape the country. Jessica Chastain plays the zookeeper's wife. This is an excellent movie, folks, and well worth your time.
GOING IN STYLE----This is a delightful and funny movie. Three Senior senior citizens (in their 80s) who are life-long friends (Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin) are left in the cold when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty. Forced by mounting bills, they decide to step off the "straight and narrow" and provide the funds needed by robbing a bank----the very bank that swallowed their lifetime savings. This is a funny and highly enjoyable movie, friends.
THE BOSS BABY----Trust me, this is not simply a cute movie for kids. With Alec Baldwin's voice (and attitude) as the voice and personality of this "new baby brother," it is laugh-out-loud funny. This baby wears a suit and tie and has a Corporate Wheeler-Dealer mentality. The older brother is just trying to keep up and keep Boss Baby from causing too much trouble. Very funny. :)
