Movies: Where’d You Go Bernadette, The Peanut Butter Falcon, Blinded by the Light

Movie 1: Where’d You Go Bernadette

Movie watchers…many many critics poo pooed this film, crucified is more accurate. It’s one of those situations where audiences threw the baby out with the bath water. Or something like that.

It boasts a super cast, a world class production and a unique, intriguing story. Cate Blanchett’s performance alone is worth much more than the price of the ticket. We’d really love to hear your thoughts!

Movie 2: The Peanut Butter Falcon

It’s an odd title and an equally odd story. It’s also intriguing in such a way that it slowly but surely draws you in bit by bit. The ultimate results are layered in heart warming themes of redemption and friendship.

It’s not obvious at first but there is a universal message about love, kindness, forgiveness, and hope that transcends any small quirks or blemishes.

Movie 3: Blinded by the Light

If you need a reminder about the immigrant family experience, the confusion and angst of High School or a reflection on the 1980’s in the London suburb of Luton, this is your movie.

It’s a true story based on the memoir by Sarfraz Manzoor. There is a heavy dose of Bruce Springsteen music. If you are a”Boss” fan you will want to watch the credits at the end. Overall, it’s charming, a little cheesy but thoroughly delightful entertainment.

One thought on “Movies: Where’d You Go Bernadette, The Peanut Butter Falcon, Blinded by the Light”

  1. I read the review for blinded by the light in the sf Chronicle. From previews it looked like a good movie. Besides, I always liked the Boss. This was a good movie and I want to pull out my old Springsteen CD and listen again.

    Thanks guys!
