The best movies out of these were Predestination, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Pride, and Marrowbone and the least I liked out of these were Gamer and Annabelle: Creation.
The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018) is the movie that tested Terry Gilliam in many ways. He finally was able to film this movie although with a different cast including Johnny Depp and Jean Rochefort. Although it would’ve been great with Depp and Rochefort, Adam Driver as Toby Grummett and Jonathan Price as Javier Sanchez/Don Quixote did a comparable job. There are some hilarious scenes but not in the traditional sense. It’s definitely a commentary about getting old and losing one’s mind. It’s comedic and serious at the same time.
Professor Marston and the Wonder Women (2017) is the true story about the origins of Wonder Woman. The movie explores the relationships between William Marston (Luke Evans), his wife Elizabeth Holloway (Rebecca Hall), and their live-in friend/help Olivia Bryne (Bella Heathcote). The original Wonder Woman was radically different back then, and we all can thank Gloria Steinem for introducing to us again what this superheroine is today.
Annabelle Creation (2017) is the precursor to the other movies in this franchise and deals with the concept between good and evil. After a couple heals from the unexpected death of their child, years later they take in orphans and nuns after finding themselves without a place to stay. The parents (Anthony LaPaglia and Miranda Otto) end up needing to protect themselves and their guests against an evil doll.
Centurion (2010) is based on the Roman Empire’s Ninth Legion during early second century AD. The Picts capture Quintus Dias (Michael Fassbender) but escapes and finds refuge with General Titus Flavius Virilus (Dominic West). Together with other Romans, they trek the countryside to fight against Pict threat.
Predestination (2014) is about an agent who time travels to capture and identity the Fizzle Bomber. The agent (Ethan Hawke) meets a man named John (Sarah Snook) and they work together to save lives and their part of the society as they know it.
The Company You Keep (2012) deals with Jim Grant (Robert Redford) and his past ties to the Weather Underground militant group that is responsible for the 1980 murder of the bank’s security guard during a robbery. His life falls apart when Sharon Solarz (Susan Sarandon) speaks about her past and the secrets they kept reveal themselves amongst the current and former members of the group.
Pride (2007) is based on the true story of Jim Ellis (Terrence Howard) during the 1970s. He’s having a hard time finding a job due to racial inequality. He becomes an integral part in turning the Marcus Foster Recreation Center into something worthwhile for the neighborhood teenagers. He teaches them how to swim better and becomes a hero in Philadelphia.
Gamer (2009) is about John Tillman played by Gerard Butler. He’s the highest-ranking warrior in the game called Slayers. He fights against opponents with the help of a teenage gamer Simon Silverton played by Logan Lerman who hears him. As Tillman fights for his freedom, he also has to fight for his life.
Marrowbone (2017) is about Rose played by Nicola Harrison who has run away from her abusive husband with her four children. When Rose and her children arrive in the U.S., they live a life in seclusion in a small Maine town. The children include Jack played by George MacKay, Billy played by Charlie Heaton, Jane played by Mia Goth, and Sam played by Matthew Stagg. The longer they stay there, their father becomes more a threat, and they must find a way to survive.
The Eyes of Tammy Faye (2021) is the true story of Tamara Faye LaValley (Jessica Chastain) and her rise to fame as the wife of Christian preacher Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield). Her inspiring personality is loved and despised by the conservative circles. She is embraced by many during their time on 700 Club, but their downfall comes at the hands of her husband when he is arrested.
