Space Station 76

Welcome to a 1970s version of the future, where the pants are wide, the music is groovy, and the new frontier is interplanetary. When a new assistant captain arrives on the Omega 76, tensions spark, and more than asteroids collide. Big name actors, tiiiiiny budget. Didn’t do it for me, but maybe it might for you?

Side Effects

Channing Tatum, Rooney Mara, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones star in Steven Soderbergh’s psychological thriller about an experimental drug that has chilling and deadly side effects. Somewhat disappointed in the amount of Channing Tatum, but the story and acting more than made up for it. I really enjoyed this one.

Independence Day: Crucible (The Official Prequel)

Cities were crushed by the falling spacecraft—but one ship didn’t crash. It remained intact, and disgorged hordes of alien soldiers determined to fight to the death. The abandoned vessels also contained a wealth of advanced technology. Led by David Levinson, the greatest minds of our world developed deadly new hybrid weapons. Bases were built on the Moon, Mars, and beyond. A new generation of defenders had to be trained, for the invaders would return. In the headlong rush to prepare, however, not everyone would survive… Independence Day: Crucible (The Official Prequel) This prequel is something you should only read after...

Independence Day: Dark Fathom

Twenty years after the events of the first film, the international community recovers and builds up Earth’s defenses using technology salvaged from remains of the alien forces. However, the aliens were able to send a distress signal before their final defeat, which results in a new task force of alien ships coming to Earth and threatening the human race once more A great idea: One of the City Destroyers is underwater and up to no good. A great idea: Have a submarine full of Marines invade it and fight the aliens. How it falls apart: reusing the drilling storyline from...

Independence Day: Silent Zone

he No. 1 blockbuster movie Independence Day was only part of the story. After the alien invaders are downed and teams are sent out to find survivors, only some personal belongings of Dr. Brackish Okun, head scientist of Area 51, are found. Okun’s story is amazing, yet completely believable. It begins in the 1970s when this CalTech genius arrives at Area 51 to work with the National Security Agency (NSA) and the CIA on the study of a downed spaceship retrieved from Roswell, New Mexico. But there is much more to the job than Okun realized. Soon, he begins to...

Stranger Things

A love letter to 80’s horror and suspense, but with modern sensibilities. There’s some truly horrifying things going on in this story, but it’s all damned believable. What a great series, it’s only available on Netflix right now, so if you have an account already, awesome, if not, it might even be worth the $15 a month for just this one series (and many others!)

Independence Day novelization

After seeing Independence Day Resurgence, I thought I’d go back and read the novelization of the first movie. I shouldn’t have, it unfortunately was just a quick script to book novelization that offered little more story than the original movie did. I’m trying to read it’s sequel right now, but it’s a difficult read due to being a prequel and not much of anything happens in it.

Freaks of Nature

Contemporary romantic drama pits two ambitious college debate champs (Kirk Cameron, Jami Gertz) against each other in an engaging war of words and emotions. The Amazon description for the movie is so completely incorrect, hilariously so.  The movie is actually about a town where zombies, vampire and humans are co-existing happily when space invaders do their thing and begin to invade the happy little village.  The plot is some what unique, but acting is so so and the cgi is noticiable but not distractingly so.  It was a fun way to kill some time, just don’t believe a word of...

The Night Manager

The Night Manager is based on John le Carre’s novel, ex-British soldier Jonathan Pine (Tom Hiddleston) is recruited by MI-6’s Angela Burr (Olivia Colman) to infiltrate the inner circle of an arms trader named Richard Onslow Roper (Hugh Laurie). An excellent performance by Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie as well as the entire supporting cast. The sets were insanely beautiful and the story riveting and nuanced. Six episodes of about an hour each, this is really just a slow burn / long movie that really delivers on it’s basic premise.
