ATOMIC BLONDE - CHARLIZE THERON GOES NUCLEAR ON YOUR ASS

CHARLIZ THERON IS ATOMIC - ATOMIC BLONDE - STREAM IT TONIGHT! In 2017, director David Leitch dropped a bomb on moviegoers.. causing an Atomic Blonde explosion!  CHARLIZE THERON KICKS ASS IN ATOMIC BLONDE - Click image to WATCH IT NOWStart watching for the Goddess that Charlize Theron is, but stay for take-no-prisoners, bad ass boss, seductress she also is!..  Then there is the editing, the on-the-edge-of-your-seat screenplay (Kurt Johnstad), and did I mention - sex, drugs, rock & roll, AND the sexiest cars you've ever seen!    Based on the 2012 graphic novel - The Coldest City, Atomic Blonde will stick in your throat with political intrigue that is too relevant today. CHARLIZE THERON - HANDS ON AGENT IN ATOMIC BLONDE

Atomic Blonde explodes in the first 2 minutes of the film and just never stops!  I'm so mad I missed this one on the big screen (long story) - but on a recent international flight, I was in heaven as I reached cruising altitude when Theron reached ass-kicking altitude!  SCENE STEALING WHEELS IN ATOMIC BLONDE The film is set in 1989 Berlin, months before the Fall of the Berlin Wall.  Russia, Germany, and the US have spies, undercover agents, double agents, covert agents - you name it - all skating on thin ice as they wait, unknowingly for the fall of the wall and the iron curtain in Germany.    ATOMIC BLONDE - ON THE PROWL - BLONDE AMBITION MAY NEVER BE THE SAME - CLICK IMAGE TO WATCH THE MOVIE NOW

Charlize brings.. EVERYTHING to this role as Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent sent to recover a list of double-agents before it falls into the wrong hands.  Who are those hands? Your guess is as good as hers in the underground night life of Cold War Berlin.. where everything is available.. for the right price. 

Theron's physical stature is hypnotic in Atomic Blonde.  She dominates the action scenes and you absolutely cannot look away when she is on screen.  The cinematography is so rich, you don't know where to look first.   The fashion is OFF THE CHARTS and hits it - nail-on-the-head for 80's style. Costume Designer Cindy Evans is GOLDEN in her use of color and silhouette.. relying on key vintage Dior pieces and custom John Galliano.

John Goodman, James McAvoy, and Sofia Boutella each add to the layers of deception in Lorraine's march to survival in this society where anything goes.. until it doesn't.

RENT OR DOWNLOAD THE MOVIE TONIGHT - CLICK ON IMAGEThen, you hear the music.  As I mentioned I enjoyed this film at 30,000 feet over a cocktail and when the soundtrack started - I thought my flight was headed straight to the 80's - aka Soundtrack Heaven!!  What album has David Bowie, Nena, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Till Tuesday, The Clash, Re-Flex, George Michael, A Flock Of Seagulls, and more.  This soundtrack could get you through any workout you can handle, and also help you celebrate any occasion.  Click on album cover to purchase the album now.....

JACKIE O. WHAT A MOVIE!

It's not often that a major motion picture is created about a major fashion icon.   Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a determined women.  She would help shape the image of America for much of the world during her husband's presidency.  John F. Kennedy would give the world a vision of an image of an open America, a modern, vibrant, sophisticated America.   The first Catholic president elected in America, John Kennedy was far from a perfect man, but he gave us the best example of a flawed man, being a strong leader.   His assassination in Dallas would shock the world and send America into an emotional depression that took years to heal. NATALIE PORTMAN AS JACKIE O. - click image to watch the movie now

Jackie Kennedy would become a style icon through her personal style, attention to detail, and her attention to improving our image at home and abroad.  Jackie was convinced that making the White House a spectacular showcase was an important project to throw herself into.   She was criticized for what was sometimes seen as foolish pursuits of lavish "things".   In the film, Natalie Portman does a wonderful job to capture the persona of Jackie.  Her poised speech.  Her awareness to critics that were waiting to pounce on anything she might say.   Portman easily shows us Jackie's physical beauty, and the stylists and cinematographer behind Jackie really gave us that pristine reality that the world was intoxicated by during the Kennedy years in the White House, despite how brief that time of "Camelot" was.  

See Jackie for the story.  The film focuses on Jackie Kennedy's battle to make sure her husbands legacy would not be forgotten. JACQUELINE KENNEDY - THE 35th FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES  She knew that ceremonies are remembered, and leave indelible marks in the mind of people.   She knew that things outlive people, and that monuments are forever.    

If you love fashion, the movie delivers.   Jackie Kennedy embodied the WASP aesthetic taken to its most sophisticated embodiment.  Portman is nominated for an Oscar for Best Performance in a Leading role.  It is well deserved.  Director Pablo Larrain delivers.   See it!  Click JACKIE to stream it now
