Movies: Acrimony, Pacific Rim Uprising, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

Acrimony

Taraji P. Henson is really exceptional as the devoted wife to her inventor husband Robert, played by Lyriq Bent.  The talented cast is extensive with over 50 actors.

The script is sharp and well honed, it’s quick and intelligent.  There are more twists and turns than the Hollywood Freeway!  There is also quite a bit of conflict that can become onerous to watch.

It is rated R for language, sexual content and some violence.  The genre is listed as a Thriller/Psychological Thriller running 2 hours.

This movie is both compelling to watch and disturbing at the same time.  Tyler Perry directed, produced and wrote the screenplay.

Pacific Rim

This Fantasy/Action film features monstrous creatures that came from the seas to wreck havoc on mankind.  In response, humans created giant robots to keep the sea creatures in check.

Director Guillermo del Toro is in his element as he reenacts his newest chapter of man versus monster.  This action packed episode is a visually epic scale production.  Unfortunately it is also heavy on carnage, weak on humanity and B-rated on apocalyptic creatures.

Audiences seemed to like this film.  We were not all that impressed.  Lots of noise and angst but not a lot of substance.

It is rated PG-13 for intense Sci-fi action and violence, and brief language.  It is listed as Action & Adventure, Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy.  The run time is 2 hours, 12 minutes.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

This is a story of the famed actress Hedy Lamarr dating back to the 1940s.  It is listed as a Biography/History but it is actually a documentary.

The Austrian born actress fled to the U.S. to evade a bad marriage.  She quickly became a famous leading lady, and a brilliant inventor.  She invented a radio system that is now credited as the foundation to modern radar and Bluetooth.

It is a remarkable story about an incredible woman who lived a life of her choosing.  It was not always flattering or glamorous.  She was incredibly intelligent and fearless.

Critics and audiences liked this film.  It is listed as a Biography/History that runs 1 hour, 30 minutes.
