MOLLY’S GAME is based on the true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

A timeless story of human connection and self-discovery, MOONLIGHT chronicles the life of a young black man from childhood to adulthood as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in a rough neighborhood of Miami. At once a vital portrait of contemporary African American life and an intensely personal and poetic meditation on identity, family, friendship, and love, MOONLIGHT is a groundbreaking piece of cinema that reverberates with deep compassion and universal truths. Anchored by extraordinary performances from a tremendous ensemble cast, Jenkins’s staggering, singular vision is profoundly moving in its portrayal of the moments, people, and unknowable forces that shape our lives and make us who we are.

Ground Hog day meets Alien 4, I know. This one is reasonably well plotted. A close watcher might notice a flaw in the veracity narrative; not really. The reason this works so well is the Cruise and Blunt chemistry works. Cohorts on a mission. Fellow soldiers, military tacticians both with their own sphere of acumen. Some thought Emily Blunt had chemistry with Benicio in Sicario but everyone has chemistry with Benicio-most especially Penelope Cruz. What deaf, dumb and blind man would not have chemistry with Penelope Cruz you ask-(see Tom Cruise). It is often argued that Cruise has no onscreen chemistry with any of his female co-stars. This may be the only exception. This is a credit to the acting chops and natural elan of Emily Blunt. Emily Blunt is the missing link in every Tom Cruise action adventure. Anyone watching this film should be able to deduce this. Watch this film and you almost fall prey to the inestimable charms of the action smile of Mr. Cruise. Most of his action films are vehicles for what he does best, smile on cue. Yet simply watch Emily go into and out of plank into cobra with her glistening well tanned biceps when Mr. Cruise enters her military Zendo. Each and every Ground Hog day it gets better and better on the eyes.

An alien race, undefeatable by any existing military unit, has launched a relentless attack on Earth, and Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) finds himself dropped into a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage is thrown into a time loop, forced to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again and again. Training alongside warrior Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt), his skills slowly evolve, and each battle moves them one step closer to defeating the enemy in this fun action thriller.
