Week #52 at the box office 12/25/2019 and we’re treated to sisters growing up, a frantic sports gambling addict and an animated spy accidentally disguised as a penguin, so which one is best?
This is not how I expected this to turn out, but #1 is …
Little Women ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What made this movie so special for me is how the story unfolds and is told. The narrative structure at first is disorienting, it bounces back and forth from present to flashback and moves between four sisters differing storylines. It should confuse, but by the ending of the movie it all seems the perfect way to tell this story.
On the way to the theater I recorded a video about my apprehension about the film based on the trailer.
After watching the film, see how I feel about it:
Go see Little Women. As I said in the video, it makes my top 10 list for 2019. A total surprise to me.
Next up is the movie I thought would be #1 for me this week. It was a film I looked most forward to seeing this week with Adam Sandler in a non-comedy, thriller role.
Uncut Gems ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
And, finally, the least entertaining film of the three wide releases this weekend
Spies In Disguise ⭐️⭐️
Want to see what else we recommend NOW PLAYING at the theater?
Here are other movies we’ve seen at the theater recently (maybe they are available in your area still) that are recommended. Any movie rated 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.
