Showtime!

tonyaThe weekend is coming. Get the popcorn ready and slap one of these new DVDs in the changer!  Oscar bridesmaid Lady Bird, a story about a troubled mom-daughter relationship, was nominated for best picture, direction and major acting categories, but came away empty handed.  Still worth a look tho.  Olympian Tonya Harding, who notoriously ordered a hit on a rival skater, has her story told in I, Tonya.  tThis is “an irresistible, soapy mix of jealousy  and class warfare”. The Disaster Artist tells the tragic-comic story of  Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau, an aspiring who produced what is though to be one of the worst movies ever made.  Stronger portrays a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing who lost both legs.  Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express  is a handsome re-do of the classic mystery.
