John Wick: Chapter 2

Directed by Chad Stahelski. With Keanu Reeves, Riccardo Scamarcio, Ian McShane, Ruby Rose. After returning to the criminal underworld to repay a debt, John Wick discovers that a large bounty has been put on his life. 99% of this movie is great, I still cringe a little bit with the ending where nearly every single person in the entire city is acting like they’re members of the hitman association.

John Wick

Directed by Chad Stahelski, David Leitch. With Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Willem Dafoe. An ex-hit-man comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that killed his dog and took everything from him. Arguably the best action franchise of our time, this movie still holds up all these years. The opening is a bit silly, as we’re to assume that Mr Wick is on death’s door, only to learn that it was just a nap time scratch and he later just got up off the ground and found a new dog.

With Josh Hartnett, Ewan McGregor, Tom Sizemore, Eric Bana. 160 elite U.S. soldiers drop into Somalia to capture two top lieutenants of a renegade warlord and find themselves in a desperate battle with a large force of heavily-armed Somalis.

A-X-L

Directed by Oliver Daly. With Alex Neustaedter, Becky G, Alex MacNicoll, Dominic Rains. A.X.L. is a top-secret, robotic dog who develops a special friendship with Miles and will go to any length to protect his new companion. I’m surprised by both how much better this was than I expected and that Thomas Jane was in it. Do these two facts have anything to do with each other? Maybe. Buy On Amazon!

The Incredibles hero family takes on a new mission, which involves a change in family roles: Bob Parr (Mr Incredible) must manage the house while his wife Helen (Elastigirl) goes out to save the world.

Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy with supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling cyborg, Cable. I enjoyed this film, i think this was my 10th time watching it. Everyone is just on their A-Game for the entire thing. Buy On Amazon!

The Greatest Showman

Directed by Michael Gracey. With Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Zendaya. Celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation. I love the songs, I love the pageantry, but don’t dare think this is anything more than a fictional tale of a man with a dream. Buy On Amazon!

Pokemon Detective Pikachu

Directed by Rob Letterman. With Ryan Reynolds, Justice Smith, Kathryn Newton, Bill Nighy. In a world where people collect Pokémon to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent talking Pikachu who seeks to be a detective. I was absolutely blown away by this movie. I’ve only played a single Pokemon game, and that was Pokemon Go, which isn’t really like any of the other pokemon games from my understanding. Having not played the games, I was still able to recognize a huge number of the pokemon in the movie and could appreciate how perfect the cgi for them was....

What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Deep Space Nine

Directed by Ira Steven Behr, David Zappone. With Nicole de Boer, Wallace Shawn, Andrew Robinson, Terry Farrell. Ira Steven Behr explores the legacy of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993). I fully enjoyed this look back at Deep Space Nine, and really enjoyed the HD content. It’s a shame that we’ll never likely see the entire series in HD, but this was a great start. Buy On Amazon!
