“Fighting With My Family”
Based on the real life story of WWE superstar Paige, it’s as much a family dramedy as it is a sports movie. You don’t have to be a wrestling fan to enjoy the story. Florence Pugh is outstanding as the youngest member of a British family of wrestlers. She’s the only one picked by the WWE to tryout, much to the disappointment of her older brother, who’s ONLY dream was to pursue a wrestling career. “Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey plays her mom. Vince Vaughn plays her WWE trainer and Dwayne Johnson (aka “The Rock”) has a few scenes. Clocking in at a little more than 90 minutes this is a great one for the whole fam to enjoy.

“How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World”
This is the 3rd in the franchise that began 9 years ago. I missed it but it’s getting the thumbs up. Many are saying it feels like the ending to the franchise, which is rare for successful kiddie films. But it’s longish for the little ones- almost 2 hours. It gets 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.
