Breakthrough(2019)

 

        2019 has some of the greatest hit movies in years. Many inspirational and thrilling depending on what you love. There are three hit movies I would love to share and suggest for you to see. Breakthrough, Avengers Endgame, and Aladdin. Depending on what you love, I believe one of these movies will make it to your top 10. 

        Starting off, Breakthrough is a faith-based movie I really enjoyed. Breakthrough came out on April 12, 2019. This movie is based on Joyce Smith’s book, The impossible. It is a true story about a child who broke through ice while playing with his friends, was for under 15 minutes, and through a miracle from family and friend’s prayers, the impossible happens. Chrissy Metz is the mother and star of the movie from the popular show, This is Us. Breakthrough has become one of the most inspiring and hope filling movies I have ever watched. Critic Bile Ebiri from the NYTimes states,” you don’t have to believe in divine intervention to be moved by Breakthrough.” So I really suggest you put this on your movie list. 

        Maybe you aren’t for these faith-based movies. Then I suggest you watch the most favored movie spoken of this year, Avengers Endgame. Avengers Endgame is a fantasy/ sci-fi movie. In space, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts while he has no food, water, and almost out of oxygen. Meanwhile, the other Avengers figure out a way to bring back their vanished allies, with a fight with Thanos who decimated the planet and universe. There are about 7 movies that are involved in Endgame. Other movies in The Avengers franchise include: Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Thor Ragnorak. Of course not all of these need to be watched to understand, but I at least suggest to watch Infinity War first. Critic Peter Travers states, “Don’t expect a typical happening ending. Just prepare to be wowed.” I believe it was pretty amazing and suggest it as well. 

        Lastly, If you love Disney movies like me then I suggest you watch the newest movie, Aladin. Remade and had come out in May, this has become one of the #1 have to watch movies so far this year. Aladdin is a fantasy/ romance movie. Aladin, a sweet urchin meets princess Jasmine. Falling in love with Jasmine, he finds an oil lamp and uses three wishes from the genie inside to be with her and overthrow the evil sorcerer Jafar who wants to take over the kingdom by becoming a prince himself. Starring Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Will Smith as the Genie, this creates a funny and entertaining movie for all. Critic Debdut Bhadra states, “I was able to travel through my childhood days, and enjoy each and every bit of “The whole New World” as well. Almost three decades have passed in between the old and new film, yet not a single emotion is absent in the new movie.” So bring back those memories, and watch this movie as well. 

        All these movies have played a big part in my life and I don’t regret watching them. From inspiration to childhood memories and just fun and excitement. So just remember to look out for theses memories and enjoy.
