Jojo Rabbit #OscarNominee

AVAILABLE February, 4th. on Prime Video.

RATED PG

109 MINUTES


A World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy named Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.
Starring Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell and Rebel Wilson.




REVIEW:
I love Sam Rockwell. I would watch him perform the phone book.I wish he was in more of the movie though.
Also love the Beatles, and what a way to draw me in and capture my attention but to play them in German. Being part German descent, I loved that!
JoJo is quite a kid. You want to dislike him, he is a Nazi, very devout in fact. As you watch him, you soon realize what an amazing boy he really is. The dynamic between him and the Jewish girl is beautiful to watch, even if he tries to hate her.
JoJo has a friend that is everywhere. He is sort of like his conscience. It's weird and cute.
I can see why this film got nominated for an Oscar. The cinematography is pretty incredible, even if the story is just alright. It's such a well made movie!!
I really enjoyed it!


4/5

    1. Honestly, if I read the synopsis alone, I wouldn't have watched it. Not my usual fare. I'm so glad I did though. I may not be so quick to snub a war movie again.

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
