The Three-Decade-Old Film ‘Outbreak’ is Taking Netflix By Storm

Twenty-five-years ago in 1995 big-name actors such as Dustin Hoffman and Morgan Freeman joined forces to star in an action film focused on the horrifying outbreak of a  deadly contagious virus. Sounds familiar, huh?

I’ve never of the film a day in my life but thanks to the infamous COVID-19, it’s now one of the most-watched movies on Netflix. And guess what? My family and I ended up watching it as well.

Outbreak isn’t a good film, far from it, but its relevancy to the very events that plague the world at this moment made me watch the entire movie from beginning to end. There were deaths, there were panic and mass hysteria, but at the film’s conclusion, humanity had prevailed. A cure had been found and lives were being saved.

In a time when it seems like this very year of 2020 has been somewhat shut down it’s nice to see a film that highlights the power of the human spirit even under such dismal circumstances.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

‘Ratatouille’ Is Actually Pretty Good!

A little over a decade ago my sister and I watched Ratatouille for the first time. We didn’t like it that much. And yet, thanks to Disney+, we got to watch it and I was pleasantly surprised.

As a child, some of the film’s themes were a bit too mature for me to understand and I ended up not being able to follow the story that well or feel any emotional connection to it. But, as a young adult, the movie shined in ways I wasn’t expecting.

No, this isn’t one of those Pixar movies that’ll make you cry your eyes out (well, at least it didn’t make me cry) but it did touch my heart with a touching storyline that left me laughing and riveted through its entirety.

Unsurprisingly, this is yet another Pixar hit.

I’m giving this movie 91 out of 100 4 out of 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

The Stormtroopers: Part 24

FN-3043 dashed to his friends who, in turn, sprinted to him as fast as their injured bodies could take them. FN-2358 was the first to tackle him, her laughter filling his ears as he spun her around.

“Double-Three, you’re alive,” she exclaimed in disbelief.

She pulled away from him, held his face in her hands, and kissed both of his cheeks.

FN-3043 was a bit taken aback by the embrace but before he could fully absorb what had just happened a limping FN-1217 wrapped him in a tight bear hug. Continue reading The Stormtroopers: Part 24
