August is finally here! All of the months of waiting for the Mississippi-filmed James Brown Biopic has come to an end –
Get on Up is the story of James Brown’s rise from poverty to one of the world’s most influential musicians. If you like music, you need to see this movie. If you like to watch great story-telling, you need to see this movie. Chadwick Boseman became Jackie Robinson in “42”, and he hits another homerun with his portrayal of the Godfather of Soul. No punches are pulled in showing you James’ true story, so this film is rated PG-13 for language, drug use and sexual content.
Guardians of the Galaxy is the latest Marvel movie – this time about a group of misfits who band together to, well, guard the galaxy. An American pilot, played by Chris Pratt, finds himself being hunted after stealing an orb. Also rated PG-13 for intense sci-fi violence, this movie will be a fun summer popcorn flick, and if you love the Marvel Universe, you need to add this to your weekend to-do list. And how can you resist a talking racoon voiced by Bradley Cooper?
Tune in every Friday morning to the Paul Gallo show and I’ll keep YOU in the movie loop!
