Movie Review: Brian and Charles

Brian and Charles is definitely not the typical movie that I would gravitate to. But one of my goals of 2022 is to expand my horizon in whatever capacity that I can. So when the opportunity presented itself to screen Brian and Charles I decided to give it a go. The quick verdict: it’s lovely and relatable.

Brian and Charles is in theaters this Friday (June 17, 2022)

Brian and Charles is filmed in a mockumentary style and set during a harsh winter in an isolated Welsh village where Brian (David Earl) is struggling on his own. Already sounds relatable, doesn’t it? In order to stay busy Brian decides to start building things. Most of the things he builds are meaningless, but then he gets an idea. Since friends weren’t coming to him, Brian decided he would make a friend of his own. And so he built a robot and called him Charles (Chris Hayward).

While loneliness is at the forefront of Brian and Charles, you definitely get some laugh out loud moments and plenty of quirky British comedy. As you can image the film has moments that will rip at your heart strings especially the bullying parts.

If you’re looking for something to watch this weekend give Brian and Charles a go!

Review: Mean Girls

Detroit! Have you heard something fetch and fun is in town now through June 19, 2022. While the movie will still remain my favorite this Broadway musical definitely knocks it out for the park for a fun night out.

Fun fact
Regina George is played by Nadina Hassan who is the mayor of Detroit’s niece!

The company also stars English Bernhardt who plays Cady and does in absolutely incredible job. Lindsay Heather Pearce who ROCKED it as Janis – I also saw her in Wicked and loved her so was excited to see her in another production. And you can’t forget Eric Huffman who did an AMAZING job playing Damian.

If you’re looking for a fun night out I cannot recommend Mean Girls enough. The musical is fun, lively and filled with a plenty of pink! It’s not a regular musical, it’s a cool musical.

Grab your tickets today to see Mean Girls at the Fisher Theatre in Detroit!

Movie Review: Top Gun Maverick

Ladies and gentlemen, THIS IS HOW YOU DO A SEQUEL! Top Gun Maverick, you have BLOWN me away. Top Gun is one of my all time favorite movies, and when a classic gets a sequel 36 years later, you’re truly skeptical how it is going to turn out. But WOW. I truly don’t even know what else to say. Top Gun Maverick is the movie we didn’t even know we’ve been waiting for.

Hands down I would give Top Gun Maverick five stars, because let me tell you it deserves every single last one of those stars. Nods to the original, appearances by oldies and newbies. Loved that Iceman made an appearance. Talk to me goose is still relevant and always will be.

I’ll be real honest with you right now, Top Gun Maverick is the must see movie of the summer, and that’s truly all the details I am giving you. Go see it on the BIGGEST screen possible. You won’t be disappointed. I’m off to go see it for a THIRD time this weekend. Because, wow!
