This week’s Patty’s Picks are two of the most talked about newly released movies.

Patty Spitler of Great Day TV joined us today with a preview and her reviews for “Turning Red,” “The Adam Project” and “Belfast.” Here’s more from her:

“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore”

First, we’re talking wizards in “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.”

Complex wizardry abounds in this third JK Rowling franchise and offshoot of the Harry Potter franchise. 

This movie was supposed to come out in 2020, but we all know what happened with the world on hold during the pandemic. 

Set several years after the events of its predecessor, the film follows Dumbledore following Newt and his allies on a mission that takes them into the depths of a dark wizard army. 

Very complicated but if you’re a fan, you’ll get it. 

Rated PG-13, 2 hours and 22 minutes, in theaters today

“Father Stud”

Next up, based on a true story, Mark Wahlberg stars in ‘Father Stu’. It centers on the redemption of the late Stuart Long. A ‘salvation bio-pic’ about a washed-up boxer who finds redemption and feels his calling is to become a priest. Mel Gibson co-stars as his abusive father.

Mark Wahlberg worked for 6 years to get this film made and he privately financed it, too. He also had to gain a bunch of weight and says that really took a toll on him and his health…he even said he ate a lot of chicken nuggets and swallowed tons of olive oil to pack on 30 pounds. I give it 3 out of 5 praying hands.

Rated R, opened in theaters on Wednesday

This week’s “Patty’s Picks” are “Being the Ricardos” and “West Side Story.”

“Being the Ricardos” is based on the turbulent times on and off the set of the TV show, “I Love Lucy.” 

Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem play Lucy and Desi. The movie takes place during one week where their very careers are at stake due to a political smear campaign, and their marriage is threatened by Desi’s wanderlust.

Patty gives this film 3 redheads out of 5.

“Being the Ricardos” opens in theaters tomorrow, December 10 and on Amazon Prime on Tuesday, December 21.

“West Side Story” has been rebranded in a film directed by Steven Spielberg.

It’s an adaptation of the 1957 stage musical, “Romeo and Juliet,” and then the 1961 film.

“West Side Story” highlights forbidden love and the intense rivalry between the Jets and the Sharks, street gangs with different ethnic backgrounds.

Patty gives this film 5 out of 5 finger snaps.

“West Side Story” opens tomorrow, December 10.

This week’s “Patty’s Pick” is “House of Gucci.” She gives it three of five Gucci Bags. Watch the video above to see why.

About “House of Gucci”:

Boldly announced at the beginning of the film, you’ll read ‘Based on a True Story.”

“House of Gucci” tells the tale of an Italian-American family with unparalleled greed, talent and heartless revenge. 

Al Pacino, Adam Driver and Lady Gaga star in the film as Ridley Scott directs this biographical crime drama set in about 1978 to the late ’90s.

It profiles a family fashion empire filled with madness and ultimately murder 

Lady Gaga’s character is the one who marries into the family and pushes her Gucci husband, Adam Driver, to get greater control at the expense of his relatives.

“House of Gucci” is now in theaters. It’s rated R for some suggestive scenes, violence and profanity.

WISH-TV legend Patty Spitler joined us today for another issue of Patty’s Picks! She reviewed the new James Bond movie “No Time to Die.” The movie opens in theaters TODAY!

The movie stars Daniel Craig as James Bond, and this is his fifth time playing the super spy. Patty told us Craig has been playing the character for 15 years! This film is packed with adventure, twists and turns and will be Craig’s last time playing James Bond.

Given that the movie is two hours and forty three minutes, Patty recommended getting a small Coke to sit through the movie! Patty gave the final rating of 2.5 out of 4 guns.
