Ghost in the Shell

Directed by Rupert Sanders. With Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche. In the near future, Major Mira Killian is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world’s most dangerous criminals. Visually appealing, with a flat story that didn’t really do it for me, but I stand by my assessment that this is still a good film. Buy On Amazon!

Jump Force

Directed by Toyokazu Sakamoto. With Katsuya Konishi, Masako Nozawa, Ryô Horikawa, Takeshi Kusao. When the real world and anime world collide with each other, many heroes from the “Shonen Jump” anthology team up and fight whoever is causing this unusual event. Normally I wouldn’t have bothered with this game, I’m only slightly familiar with DBZ, and not familiar at all with any of the other franchises involved in the game, but there was literally free money on the table to play the game and get two achievements. Most games front load a few achievements for both tracking purposes and to...

Ballers

Created by Stephen Levinson. With Dwayne Johnson, John David Washington, Omar Benson Miller, Donovan W. Carter. A series centered around a group of football players and their families, friends, and handlers. Final episode of the final season just aired and boy howdy, this was a great series. The seasons were short and to the point, and sure there were some negative things going on, but for the most part this was a fantastically positive show. Buy On Amazon!

Captain America: Civil War

Directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo. With Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan. Political involvement in the Avengers’ affairs causes a rift between Captain America and Iron Man. watched again just because I as rewatching the entire MCU.

Headlander

Directed by Lee Petty. With Phil Proctor, Grey Griffin, Richard Steven Horvitz, Mike Loprete. Science fiction action-puzzle game where the player plays as a disembodied head in a world full of robots. I really enjoyed this game, though a brief power outage at my house as I walked into the final room corrupted my save file, so there’s no way for me to see the ending or achievement hunt after that last room. What a shame I didn’t save manually. Buy On Amazon!

Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Not exactly the first heist in the MCU, but this IS the first real heist movie, and boy howdy is it enjoyable! Buy On Amazon!

Big Mouth Season 3

Created by Jennifer Flackett, Andrew Goldberg, Nick Kroll. With Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jenny Slate. Teenage friends find their lives upended by the wonders and horrors of puberty. Still a funny show but they completely lost me when they had the kids doing a musical about false sexual allegations. Also, at what point is this show just straight up child porn? I get that this is animated, but the argument for or against showing a 12 year old’s penis in a cartoon is one that i’ve heard before from some really greasy dudes saying that “sure she looks...

Stripes

Directed by Ivan Reitman. With Bill Murray, John Candy, Harold Ramis, Warren Oates. Two friends who are dissatisfied with their jobs decide to join the army for a bit of fun. This was was of the first digital movies that I added to my movie library and I’m just now watching it. It’s hilarious. Highly inappropriate. A fair bit racist. But I loved it. Buy On Amazon!
