This is a wonderful little story about babies, where they supposedly come from and the bonds of family. I thought this was cute and funny, and did not expect it to be so good. The Boss Baby is based on a book by Marla Frazee.
The Big Sick is a witty comedic love story based on the real lives of Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. Some of the best stories are based on real events, this is no exception to the rule. This romantic comedy is choc full of the best elements of a successful screenplay. The writers convey exactly the right emotion and reaction.
The Hero is one of the best films of the year, but doesn’t get the credit where it’s due. There wasn’t enough buzz about this film. Maybe if it was released later in the season, it could have been a stronger contender among films. This film was directed by Brett Haley, written by both Marc Basch and Brett Haley, and produced by Houston King, Sam Bisbee, and Erik Rommesmo. This film is distributed by The Orchard.
Writers Nick Broomfield, Rudi Dolezal and directors Nick Broomfield, Marc Hoeferlin do a great job of piecing together Whitney Houston’s life and troubled past based on interviews, videos, pictures, and concerts. Most of the information was used from Houston’s 1999 World Tour.
