Fences

On Sunday my husband and I went to see “Fences”. It was the ninth and final Best Picture nominee that I needed to see before the Academy Awards air this coming Sunday night. I love both Denzel Washington and Viola Davis and I had been interested in seeing this film since the first time I … More Fences

Lion

This past Thursday night my husband and I went to see “Lion”. I had a moderate interest in the film since December but hadn’t gotten around to seeing it yet. When it was nominated for Best Picture it became a must see for me. After seeing it I have to see that it really is … More Lion

Passengers

Back on New Year’s Eve day my husband and I went to see “Passengers”. Going into the movie we knew the basics of the plot and it seemed interesting but the real reason we saw it was for the two stars. We both adore Academy Award Winner Jennifer Lawrence and the ever so sexy and … More Passengers
