Defiance 2050

Join your friends and become an Ark Hunter in a massive cooperative online shooter like no other. Choose from an array of fully customizable weapons and classes, explore a unique futuristic open world, and engage in epic fast-paced third-person shooter combat. After a recent rewatch of the TV series I figured I’d give the game a try, after all, it’s set after the tv series, right? well no. Defiance 2050 is just a barely updated version of the original Defiance game that was running concurrently to the TV show. The story is not advanced, though there’s more to the world...

Dora and the Lost City of Gold

Directed by James Bobin. With Isabela Merced, Eugenio Derbez, Michael Peña, Eva Longoria. Dora, a teenage explorer, leads her friends on an adventure to save her parents and solve the mystery behind a lost city of gold. Enjoyably selfaware, I’m getting to be a pretty big fan of Isabela Merced (moner?), though it’s illustrious to see how she went from being an offensively sexed up teen in a Transformers movie to being a pinnacle of earnest virtue here as Dora. Enjoyable if you’ve been drinking a bit and would like to continue to drink. Buy On Amazon!

One Day at Disney

With Sterling K. Brown, Eric Goldberg, Ryan Meinerding, Jerome Ranft. I’m not entirely sure if this is a TV show or a movie, it was an hour long and covered several topics, from an animator that worked on Mickey and Aladdin, to the host of GMA, to a guy that designed IRL suits for the MCU movies. It’s a fantastic show regardless of if there’s more to be added to it. Buy On Amazon!

Knives Out

Directed by Rian Johnson. With Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis. A detective investigates the death of a patriarch of an eccentric, combative family. A boring and uninteresting mystery that’s too full of itself to actually be as clever as it thinks it is. Buy On Amazon!

The Dragon Prince Season 3

Created by Aaron Ehasz, Justin Richmond. With Paula Burrows, Jack De Sena, Sasha Rojen, Jason Simpson. Two human princes forge an unlikely bond with the elfin assassin sent to kill them, embarking on an epic quest to bring peace to their warring lands. Made by the same leads that ran the Avatar and Korra shows, I think they’ve finally found their feet! This was a great season. Buy On Amazon!

Pacific Rim

Directed by Guillermo del Toro. With Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day. As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. Watched while drinking at the inlaws during thanksgiving. Giant robots smashing giant monsters is good distraction from life. Buy On Amazon!

Gemini Man

Directed by Ang Lee. With Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen, Benedict Wong. An over-the-hill hitman faces off against a younger clone of himself. Much better than I was expecting, but marred by the fact I was watching it on a TV that had the fake frame rate ‘movie mode’ turned on. It’s a good Will Smith movie if you’re into him. If you’re not into him, why not, you monster? Buy On Amazon!

In the Tall Grass

Directed by Vincenzo Natali. With Laysla De Oliveira, Avery Whitted, Patrick Wilson, Will Buie Jr.. After hearing a young boy’s cry for help, a sister and brother venture into a vast field of tall grass in Kansas but soon discover there may be no way out…and that something evil lurks within. An interesting if predictable Stephen King horror story that just as predictably has a very cool background story with less than cool main characters. I want to know more about that rock.

TRON: Uprising

Created by Steven Lisberger, Bonnie MacBird. With Elijah Wood, Tricia Helfer, Charlie Bean, Elizabeth Ho. In the computer world of the Grid, a young program joins Tron’s fight against their world’s tyranny. The last bit of Tron I can get from Disney+, I’m still sad that this ended on a cliffhanger and there hasn’t been any follow up at all. There’s some heavy hitting VO work here and some damn good special effects. If you’re a Tron fan, you owe yourself a few hours to check this out, just be aware that the Disney+ version omits the first episode for...

TRON: Legacy

Directed by Joseph Kosinski. With Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner. The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father’s corrupted creation and a unique ally who was born inside the digital world. One of my top 5 movies, I think this is actually in my top 2 with Rocketeer sometimes at one and sometimes Tron: Legacy at one. I love the soundtrack, I love the story, I love the aesthetics, there are no complaints about this movie that I...
