Lion (+ + +) is a really wonderful movie about five-year-old Saroo, an Indian boy who falls asleep on an empty train that finally stops in Calcutta, more than a thousand miles from his home. He is lost in this big city and struggles to survive. He is eventually adopted by an Australian couple. However, he continues to feel lost and 25 years later seeks to find his home and family with the help of Google Earth. It is all based on a remarkable true story.

Hidden Figures (+ +) is a film based on a true story about three remarkable African-American women who worked at NASA at the start of the space program during the early 1960s. One of them was an extraordinary mathematician, who made John Glenn’s orbit around the earth possible. Another supervised the space agency’s use of its first IBM mainframe computer. The third was an accomplished aeronautical engineer. They performed their jobs with amazing tenacity and dignity despite lots of obstacles they faced because of their color. It is truly a great American story.

Rogue One (-) was really dull because it is the seventh movie in the “Star Wars” series of flicks about the never-ending wars between the freedom-loving rebels and their totalitarian adversaries, who rule the Empire. I didn’t give it my worst rating out of respect for the passing away of Carrie Fisher. She was Princess Leia in the original three films. She makes a digitally recreated appearance in this film, as does Peter Cushing, who died in 1994, after playing the nefarious ally of Darth Vadar and the commander of the Death Star. In the future, movie studios will save lots of money by casting digitally recreated dead stars in their movies. My wife, who is a fan of the intergalactic series, also pressured me to raise my rating, observing that fans appreciate how this prequel set the stage for the very first movie.
