Remember Movie Review 

With help from a fellow Holocaust survivor (Martin Landau), a widower (Christopher Plummer) who struggles with memory loss embarks on a cross-country odyssey to find the former Nazi responsible for the deaths of their family members. 
I knew very little about this movie before watching it… and it blew me away!
Christopher Plummer gives an extremely compelling performance and Martin Landau is nothing short of excellent. 
The story itself is so cleverly written that it had me believing I knew how it would end but then… BAM! Major plot twist! 
Unfortunately, I can’t go into further detail without spoiling the whole movie but I guarantee this movie will intrigue and surprise you!

The Forger Movie Review

John Travolta plays an art forger who is released from prison early with the help of a crime lord. Of course, the catch is that he must agree to forge a painting by Claude Monet.

He’s reluctant at first but eventually agrees to do it when he learns that his teenage son’s cancer has become progressively worse and time is of the essence.

Travolta is somewhat convincing as an art forger but even less convincing as a Bostonian. I don’t know who convinced him he could pull off a Boston accent but it just comes off as comical.

The story is pretty good and the rest of the cast gives a fairly decent performance.

If you’re interested in listening to John Travolta talk about Impressionism then The Forger might be right up your alley.
