Prepare for your storm

The next couple of days in the Charlotte area will have some questionable weather. What do you do on those rainy days? Some people play games while others read books and then there’s us, and we love to watch movies. Here are a few awesome rainy-day movies for you to check out.

Resort To Love – OMG, this is my favorite movie and I’ve watched it at least 3 times since Friday night. The writers nailed this movie because it’s the first time I’ve seen a positive African American storyline, ever! The humor is over the top good, especially when the mother-in-law gets up to make a toast at rehearsal night. That mom is ME! Find this one on Netflix.

Heaven is For Real – This movie is based on a true story and is about a little boy who has a near death experience and has an encounter with heaven. He starts to reveal his experiences though random conversations with his family. I love this movie; it is a tearjerker so have some tissues handy. This movie is available on Prime Video

Poms – Poms is a great movie and is about a woman who moves to a retirement community. She quickly makes friends and forms a cheerleading club for the young at heart seniors. This movie starts Diane Keaton, it is funny and touching. This movie is available on Netflix.

Lucy Shimmers and the Prince of Peace – This movie is sure to make you cry! It is a movie about second chances when a hardened criminal cross paths with a little girl during the holiday season. Be sure to pay attention, the ending will surely touch your heart. This movie stars Scarlett Diamond as Lucy Shimmers and Vincent Vargas as Edgar Ruiz. This movie is available on Prime Video.

Clemency – This movie is about a prison warden who over the years has been drifting away from her husband while dutifully carrying out executions in a maximum-security prison. When she strikes up a unique relationship with an inmate on death row, she begins to second guess her job and life. This movie stars the amazingly talented Alfre Woodard as Bernadine Williams, Prison Warden and Aldis Dodge as one of the inmates.

Check out these movies, I promise they will not disappoint!
