Is anyone else still high from the hottest fashions and heartfelt speeches from the 86th annual Oscars this past Sunday? One word WOW. 2013 was an historical year in film, and I have a feeling there’s more to come…my eyes are on award season 2015. Movies are a favorite past time for LMc (my 6’2 future husband…wink wink) and I. He is a movie fanatic and I have become quite the novice critic. Believe it or not, we catch a movie or two every weekend. I am so excited to introduce you to a new series on the blog, called “Now Playing On The Big Screen”. Each month I will share my must see movie picks followed by reviews. Let’s kick this series off with a bang here are my March picks:
300: Rise of an Empire - March 7, 2014 The follow up to the 2006 blockbuster film 300, the battlefield has moved to the seas of Greece. General Themistocles is leading the charge to reunite Greece. It’s been rated 5 stars by Moviefone, that alone has me pumped to see this action packed flick.
The Single Moms Club - March 14, 2014 Tyler Perry has done it again, a real life film thats relatable by many. The story of five struggling moms who form a sisterly bond, that provides the support and inspiration to overcome life’s obstacles together. Not based on a true story but certainly full of funnies and tiny life lessons. As a product of a single mom, I can’t wait to see this film.
Rob the Mob - March 21, 2014 Based on a true life story of a Queens New York couple who robbed a series of mafia social clubs and continued to get away with it. The next job will be a challenge they never encountered, they become targets to the mafia and FBI. I’ve always loved a good mafia film, the unspoken yet super powerful lifestyle is quiet intriguing.
Noah - March 28, 2014 Starring the talented Russell Crowe as Noah, based on the biblical story in the book of Genesis. This film depicts the the power of the Holy Spirit, before and after the flood that destroyed the world. Stories in the bible are fascinating to me and to see them played out on the big screen gives me another level of understanding. I look forward to the work of the visionary director Darren Afronosky.
Join in the fun with me, what movies are you anticipating this month? I’d love to hear, I am always looking to add more films to my must see list. After all I need other movie buffs that I can share my favorite scenes and lines with.
