NOW PLAYING REVIEWS: Ford v Ferrari, The Good Liar, Charlie’s Angels

Want to know what we recommend seeing that opened this 11-15-2019 weekend #46 at the movies? All wide releases were seen, rated and reviewed with links on the movie titles below.

This week our favorite is …

Ford v Ferrari ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ScreenX

With the roar of the engine and accelerating around turns at breakneck speeds, this film kept us locked in — especially enjoyed in ScreenX. The conflict is over who will win the 24 hour Lemans, between Ford and Ferrari and Matt Damon and Christian Bale provide outstanding performances. Definitely recommended.

The Good Liar ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Turning, twisting plot that keeps the viewers guessing what is going to happen to the characters. Expertly acted by Ian McKellan and Helen Mirren. Nothing about the story or the characters is ever quite what it seems.

I really enjoy watching movies like this one. It’s billed as a thriller, and it’s more dramatic mystery than anything. It will play tricks on the viewer and tells a really good story. Recommended.

Charlie’s Angels (2019) ⭐️½

Save yourself from this ho-hum, bland second reboot featuring a slew of Bosleys (there are angels everywhere in this movie) and a new trio of mostly underwhelming angels (Kristin Stewert is the best of the worst). This turkey is mostly style without substance. Not recommended.

Want to see what else we recommend NOW PLAYING at the theater?

Here are other movies we’ve seen at the theater that are recommended. Any movie we rate at least 3-stars is recommended. You should read any 3-star review (click the title), because sometimes we do qualify those recommendations, meaning we were entertained, but it doesn’t mean that it was necessarily that good. 4-star movies are highly recommended and films we rate as 4 1/2 or 5 stars are must see.

  1. Harriet ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  2. Joker ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
  3. The Lighthouse ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
  4. Motherless Brooklyn ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
  5. Last Christmas ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
  6. Parasite ⭐️⭐️⭐️
  7. Black and Blue ⭐️⭐️⭐️
  8. Zombieland: Double Tap ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Motherless Brooklyn has dropped screenings, but it’s worth seeking out for Edward Norton’s performance and a good screenplay. The Lighthouse harder to find, due to limited screenings, but recommended for horror fans.

Haven’t seen Jo Jo Rabbit as of this writing. Jo Jo Rabbit is finally playing nearby, so will get that viewed soon. It was previously limited screening. All other films now playing in theaters are not recommended to see in the theater. You can see all our movie reviews on Letterboxd, including those on streaming channels.
