All Joy and No Fun

Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on their children. In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior now asks: what are the effects of children on their parents? In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior tries to tackle this question, isolating and analyzing the many ways in which children reshape their parents’ lives, whether it’s their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses of self. She argues that changes in the last half century have radically altered the roles of today’s mothers and fathers, making their...

Geostorm

The visuals in space are what I like the most about the film, the ISS-IV is a pretty space station and I like how it blew up all pretty like.

Doctor Strange

From Marvel Studios comes DOCTOR STRANGE, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident renders his hands useless. When traditional medicine fails him, he travels to remote Kamar-Taj in search of a cure, but instead discovers the mystical arts and becomes a powerful sorcerer battling dark forces bent on destroying our reality. I enjoyed seeing his magic stuff in Infinity War, so I went back to watch this on Netflix. I guess I should start buying the Disney/Marvel movies while they’re $10 each since they’re going to eventually pull...

Black Panther

When young King T’Challa is drawn into conflict with an old foe that puts his homeland Wakanda and the entire world at risk, he must release Black Panther’s full power to save them.

I still feel like this movie has some issues. They completely lost me in the third act when they return to Wakanda with the dead body (why did they kill off one of the best...

Riddick (unrated director’s cut)

Vin Diesel continues the action saga of the antihero Riddick, an escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the galaxy. Experience the Unrated Director’s Cut with an alternate ending! I’m really not sure what was so unrated about this one, though I can’t remember if the “rated” version showed Katie Sackoff’s boob for those two seconds or not. It’s a fun movie with a much more entertaining backstory IRL than the story in the movie ended up being. It’s been a few years, but I think it’s time for more Riddick in the world.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Heroic Hugh Jackman breathes the fire into Wolverine — with a vengeance! This pulse-pounding action thriller sinks razor-sharp adamantium claws into the mysterious origins of Logan/Wolverine: his epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed/Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), and the ominous Weapon X program that unleashes his primal fury. I was about half way through Deadpool when I realized this wasn’t the first movie Ryan Reynolds played this character, so I decided to watch the movie he first played Deadpool. There were some issues though: horrible claw CGI death of two old people just to make a point...
