Better Watch Out

Directed by Chris Peckover. With Olivia DeJonge, Levi Miller, Ed Oxenbould, Aleks Mikic. On a quiet suburban street, a babysitter must defend a twelve-year-old boy from intruders, only to discover it’s far from a normal home invasion. There’s a wonderful point in this film where absolutely everything falls apart and how that scene is handled is glorious. Highly suggest checking this one out if you’re a fan of the possibility of Home Alone / Saw crossover. Buy On Amazon!

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Directed by Gareth Edwards. With Felicity Jones, Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen. The daughter of an Imperial scientist joins the Rebel Alliance in a risky move to steal the Death Star plans. In light of the recent Episode IX trailer dropping, I went back to watch the best Star Wars film that Disney’s released yet. Buy On Amazon!

Apt Pupil

Directed by Bryan Singer. With Ian McKellen, Brad Renfro, Joshua Jackson, Mickey Cottrell. A boy blackmails his neighbor after suspecting him to be a Nazi war criminal. not a great film, but an interesting story none the less. it had a distinct 90’s made for TV feel to it. Buy On Amazon!

The Highwaymen

Directed by John Lee Hancock. With Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson, Kathy Bates, John Carroll Lynch. A pair of Texas Rangers come out of retirement to catch the infamous outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. Beautiful looking movie with a soundtrack that pulled me right into it, both Costner and Harrelson are at their prime here, showing why they’re among the best actors out there. It’s ultimately a sad story about a pretty broken period of American history, but the movie is great. Buy On Amazon!

A Star Is Born

Directed by Bradley Cooper. With Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper, Sam Elliott, Greg Grunberg. A musician helps a young singer find fame as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral. A very good movie with some very good music. If you’ve seen the three other versions of the film, I’m sure you’ll recognize the story, but Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper have the best version yet.

Justice League vs the Fatal Five

Directed by Sam Liu. With Elyes Gabel, Diane Guerrero, Kevin Conroy, Susan Eisenberg. The Justice League battles the Fatal Five, (Tharok, Emerald Empress, Validus, Mano and the Persuader). Based on the characters created by Jim Shooter. A fantastic Bruce Timm DC superhero movie that I fell asleep to while watching, which isn’t the movie’s fault, I got the flu 🙁 I re-watched the parts I missed though and they were great!

“The Twilight Zone” The Comedian (TV Episode 2019)

Directed by Owen Harris. With Amara Karan, Ryan Beil, Byron Bertram, Josh Collins. Taking advice from a famous comedian, a stand-up comic makes fun of his own life – with unexpected results. It’s insane to think that in 2019 that we’d have not just one, not two, but now three series dealing with mind warping twists on our personal reality. As good as Black Mirror or Weird City are, Twilight Zone is the big gun that comes out swinging with an absolutely killer of a episode. It’s free on youtube right now too, so check it out.

Like Father

Directed by Lauren Miller Rogen. With Kristen Bell, Danielle Davenport, Kimiko Glenn, Wynter Kullman.

Finaly a netflix film that doesn’t make me wonder what kind of blackmail they have on the main stars! Buy On Amazon!
