Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures (2017)


Hidden Figures tells the incredible untold story of Katherine Jonson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae) – brilliant African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn, a stunning achievement that turned around the Space Race. The visionary trio crossed all gender and racial line and inspired generations.

I know I rented it and I can recall some of the scenes from this movie, but for the life of me I can’t remember how it ended. Then again, I already how it really ended. I really should do my reviews the same day as the moview viewing, if not the next day because I can’t remember shit unless it is remarkable and that’s probably why I can’t remember more.

What I remember is that the supervisor did get promoted to the computer processing thingy-department and that they did get Americans in space, after the Russians. I also remember hot Mr. Kevin Costner <3 and Sheldon Cooper, er Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory, who’s character I did not like more than Sheldon!

No opinion one way or the other regarding this movie.

Home (2015)



When Earth is taken over by the overly confident Boov, an alien race in search of a new place to call home, all humans are promptly relocated while all Boov get busy reorganizing the planet. But when one resourceful girl, Tip, manages to avoid capture, she finds herself the accidental accomplice of a banished Boov named Oh. The two fugitives realize there’s a lot more at stake than intergalactic relations as they embark on the road trip of a lifetime.

Probably better than I expected; certainly a little surprised at plot twist. Clever in some parts…

Jim Parsons’ voice is so distinct, but I don’t think it took away too much, as the character seemed to be a different aspect of the same character he plays on The Big Bang Theory. I presume Rihanna did some of the music for the movie., I liked that “Whoop” sound, reminding me of a song Penny sang once on The Big Bang Theory.

Oh, and was the cat’s name: Pig? Loved it!
