Directed by Rupert Wyatt. With John Goodman, Ashton Sanders, Jonathan Majors, Vera Farmiga. Set in a Chicago neighborhood nearly a decade after an occupation by an extra-terrestrial force, Captive State explores the lives on both sides of the conflict – the collaborators and dissidents. This is a great film, but I see why it’s getting mixed reviews, not everyone can sit through the suspense or be ok with how the movie ended. The crowd I watched this with seemed confused by the ending or some of the major plot points, I over heard a few people saying they’d just have...

Created by Tim Miller. With Scott Whyte, Nolan North, Matthew Yang King, Michael Benyaer. A collection of animated short stories that span various genres including science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy. Fantastic stories from some fantastic authors. I knew about Marko Kloos and John Scalzi’s work in the series, but was surprised when I recognized Alastair Reynolds’ work before his name even popped up in the credits. It’s incredibly NSFW, but a fantastic anthology none the less. Buy On Amazon!

Directed by Brady Corbet. With Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Stacy Martin, Jennifer Ehle. An unusual set of circumstances brings unexpected success to a pop star. This felt like Natalie Portman and Jude Law had the weekend off and wanted to spend some time together and just decided to film it. I don’t think I like it? Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Patty Jenkins. With Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright, Lucy Davis. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, Diana, an Amazonian warrior in training, leaves home to fight a war, discovering her full powers and true destiny. Had a discussion about what Wonder Woman did right that Captain Marvel did not and vice versa. In a stunning coincidence, Microsoft had the UHD version on sale for $9 and I had a $10 credit, so it worked out well! Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck. With Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law. Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. ehhhhhhh, I have a lot to complain about with this movie, but it’s much like pizza: even when it’s bad, it’s not THAT bad.

Directed by Bryan Singer. With Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy. The story of the legendary rock band Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury, leading up to their famous performance at Live Aid (1985). A fun movie that had an uneven pacing and tragically omits most of the band’s early history. That’s expected for a movie that’s just about Freddy, but it’s a missed opportunity for a movie named after a band’s famous song. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos. With Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult. In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. An absolutely fantastic waste of two hours, the story goes no where, nothing of note really happens, but it’s all done fantastically and with great expense. Buy On Amazon!
