BIG MIRACLE is an emotionally entrancing movie. It’s simply one extra fine Whale Saving Movie. And if you’ve never given these Giant Mammals much thought, you will and you’ll need one extra box of soft Tissue for the Tears that will be appearing magically into your eyes…this movie will pull you in like your heart has been harpooned. An invisible harpoon. But this Movie will force you to look at ourselves on many Levels. And all of bus need that from time to time. Quite possibly more today than ever before.
And I’m not kidding. This one stands up easily against any Walt Disney Movie, but if you have not seen this movie, pop some popcorn and invite the whole family to Watch on Netflix. It’s way well worth your family’s viewing.
I was searching last night for something different than watching the Pence-Harris Debate. I have to admit, Trump’s hogging the prime time 30 Minute News showing Trump going to Walter Reed and another 30 minutes again showing him returning reminded me of such a Joseph Stalin move that it did bitterness me. How could he? This too did bitterness me. And the Covid Drive-By was simply too much. So, in other words, I’m all tapped-out on all the political mumbojumbo. Seen all I want to see. So, I was looking for a new mental feed and boy howdy, did I find it.
But, I’m not sure which entertaining section I was in and then I saw this one-BIG MIRACLE. And this Movie will talk to your senses more directly than ever before. It did mine on many levels. It’s like all of us are the Whales. And if you enjoyed the Star Trek Movie, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home is a 1986 American science fiction film directed by Leonard Nimoy and based on the television series Star Trek and they had to go fetch a couple of Whales from the past to put into the ocean in the future, you will love this movie. I know I did.
Just looking at what sort of New World the Eskimos live in is eye-opening and how man has changed all of it. I think I needed to see that, again. It did remind me of Climate Warming. It alone reminded me of the Black Struggle for equality and I thought about the American Indians and how we forced them to change or readapt to the White Man’s World. And the flocking of Reporters. And BIG MIRACLE reminded me of a time less congested with fewer thoughts I find troubling today with the Pandemic and the War to retake the White House…too much on everyone’s mind. So, time to flush out those emotions that you didn’t even know need flushing out of our bodies. And this amazing Movie will put you in the right frame of thought. But which Whale will you be?
Or will you pick Big Oil? President Reagan? A member on the Russian Ice Breaker? A Reporter?. The Eskimo Boy? His Grandfather? Green Peace? Or a simple laborer cutting Ice? Who? Yes, who will you pick?
Yes, one of these will become your movie buddy. And let it out. Yes, let it all out! Let your emotions go! I actually feel so much better by watching this movie and NOT watching the Debate.
But, everyone did an amazing job of putting this movie together-Super Directing, Superb Casting, very thoughtful Script, wonderful Acting by male and female Actors. Great Production! And the Whale Photograph is Out of this World. Yes, the Whales and their haunting romantic tunes that they sing are enchanting, so calling to all of us. And they too are at man’s mercy. But only a movie such as this does remind us of our handiwork having far- reaching effects. But that is not what I want you to leave with. This Movie is so going to intertwine your emotions and help heal the sorrows you are compartmentalizing inside of you right now.
And the Whales coming up for air could be anyone of us. Coming up for Life.
But, I happily now wrote this simple Review in Hopes that you too will take a magical ride into our Past and see a good moment. Seeing something good that all of us did to fix a problem is an answer to what’s ailing all of us right now. Just getting everyone to the Table is always the hardest part.
But goodness will prevail. It always does. But getting there takes a ton of sacrifices on everyone’s part. I do hope you will put everything aside, grab a drink, some popcorn, a box of Tissues, and Watch one extraordinary movie about Saving Whales.
BIG MIRACLE is a 5-STAR Movie!
Please, check it out, I do not think you will be disappointed in any way. It’s what all of us need to see right NOW. Do enjoy!
