Is the 7th time the charm for the Transformers franchise? To me, It actually does surprise me in terms of character and story. But this film still has too small of stakes compared to the previous films. I don’t see this swaying anyone who hasn’t been interested from the start, but for anyone who fell off the wagon with the last few installments, this may be an excellent soft reset for fans to jump back in.

I’ve been interested in this film since I first heard it was being made. A fascinating true story about a Janitor with a dream that saved his career and changed the snack industry forever. Director Eva Longoria directorial debut shines with heartfelt performances, a charming and inspiring story, telenovela drama, and engaging writing. This is a must-see for the family this weekend!

A new mini-series on Netflix, Arnold breaks down the life of The Terminator into three parts. His weightlifting, his acting, and his political career. I loved learning about Arnold from a younger age, and his philosophies on life, and what motivated him to be different and succeed. Easily one to binge-watch this weekend and would say you should!
