Movie 1: A Rainy Day in New York
This romantic comedy was written and directed by Woody Allen. It was completed in 2017 and about to be released by Amazon Studios when halted over controversy regarding Allen and the ME TOO movement.
It’s set in New York, its lead character, Timothée Chalamet is the son of a wealthy family struggling to find his own way in life. This includes the relationship with his girlfriend and his parents.
We had not heard about this film but it was recently released in multiple countries in Europe, South America and some Asian countries.
Our theater was one in a 37 theater multiplex packed on a rainy afternoon.
Movie 2: Rambo: Last Blood
Apparently this is the last film in the Franchise. It’s classic Rambo/Stallone series. Rambo’s only daughter is taken South of the border…seemingly because she is in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Rambo goes ballistic as he plans her rescue knowing the bad guys will retaliate. What comes next is impressive but exhausting.
Movie 3: Port Authority
This is an interesting film about a young drifter who leaves Pittsburgh for New York in hopes of a better future.
He finds work as a mover who seeks and evicts poor folks from their homes in Harlem. Not the best way to meet people.
