The second movie I saw is indeed a horror movie. It’s an installment in “The Conjuring” universe, “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.” True horror fans will love it. The reason I love “The Conjuring” series is because the movie stars Lorraine and Ed Warren, actual people who are Christians who historically did “house cleansing” and exorcisms for years. Their faith and dedication is inspiring to me, and I love their quotes at the end of each movie.
The final movie I saw in the theater was “In the Heights,” which is based on “Hamilton” creator Lin Manuel Miranda’s lesser-known Tony award winning musical. I love-love-love the original musical, and I really enjoyed the movie. However, the movie left out important plot lines and tried to scramble them in too late in the movie. If you aren’t familiar with the musical, you’ll probably like the movie more than I did.
I’ve had requests to recommend shows by the services on which they air. So here goes:
“Mare of Easttown”
A stunning performance by Kate Winslet as a down-on-her-luck detective trying to solve both a heinous cold case and a current case. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. Warnings: adult language and some sexual content.
“The Crime of the Century”
A documentary about the oxycodone epidemic and the politicians that have blood on their hands. It’s fascinating and anger-producing, as well. It’s excellent.
Please go watch “Ted Lasso” now before season two drops. It’s one of my favorite shows in years.
“Murder on the Coast”
The documentary about catching one of the most horrible and anonymous murderers of women.
A heart-warming movie about a couple that runs an orphanage that is on the verge of failing. The pair joins forces with a crusty fisherman to win a fishing competition to save the orphanage.
The hysterical 80’s girls band that reconnects for a comeback when the hit their 40s. It’s only appropriate if you were in high school somewhere from 1982-1989.
“The Woman Who Wasn’t There”
This is an unbelievable documentary about a woman who lied about being at the Twin Towers on 9/11and found celebrity and money in that lie. (Yes, I watched a lot of documentaries this month because wedding planning did that to my brain.)
So, I hope I see you the movies in person soon, and as always, pass the popcorn!
