Bushwick

Stupe (Dave Bautista) and Lucy (Brittany Snow) must navigate through a hail of gunfire and lethal explosions in their Brooklyn neighborhood as Texas attempts to secede from the US in a new civil war. “The Division” as a movie. Want to see a pretty nuanced and impressive performance from Dave Bautistia? This is it! A pretty shallow story but very well shot, there were a few scenes that went on for nearly 5 minutes that didn’t have a single cut, which is impressive after watching a modern action film turn “a man jumping over a fence” into 15 separate takes...

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

A dark force threatens Alpha, a vast metropolis and home to species from a thousand planets. Special operatives Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, which has a good science fiction world with a nice science fiction story that you really don’t want to look too closely at. Luc Benson has a great eye for over the top science fiction civilizations and architecture, and I’m happy to have been on this science fiction ride. SCIENCE FICTION Y’ALL!

Wonder Woman

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny. I stand by that assessment that this movie was great while they were on Themyscira and went down hill from there. Luckily it didn’t fall very far and still ended on a stronger note than any of the other ‘modern’ live action DC films to date.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

The world’s top protection agent has as a new client a hit man who he has been exchanging bullets with for years and he only has 24 hours to get him to The Hague. Everything I hoped it could be, everything I wished it could be. I’m happy to see that Ryan Reynolds is finally back in his groove.

Marvel’s Inhumans (ABC)

Inhumans on the moon! Inhumans in Hawaii! I paid $17 a ticket for two people to go see this at an IMAX theater, but it was utter trash. It would have been ok to watch it on TV, we fully expect Marvel’s television efforts to be low budget and make nearly no sense, but this was the worst Marvel experience I’ve had yet, which is a tragic thing to say. The CGI, when used, was pretty great to see, but they only had about 5 combat cgi shots, the rest were poorly choreographed hand to hand scenes. Even the normal...

Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars

Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer and DeRay Davis lend their voices to an all-new military Sci-Fi adventure from the writer of Starship Troopers and Robocop, Ed Neumeier. This is as good as the original movie, it’s cgi, but it’s absolutely beautiful cgi. I highly recommend watching!

AeonFlux

Aeon Flux is a mysterious assassin working for the Monicans, a group of rebels trying to overthrow the government. When she is a sent on a mission to kill the Chairman, a whole new mystery is found. Charlize Theron in science fiction? Yes Please! I had forgotten how well done this movie was, but it’s free on Amazon Prime and my wife mentioned it to me sometime in the last week, so here I am, watching it again.

Buster’s Mal Heart

In this bold thriller spiked with dark humor, Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) is a family man whose chance encounter with a conspiracy-obsessed drifter leaves him on the run from the police and an impending event known as The Inversio See that missing “n” in the synopsis? That’s the way it is on Amazon.com, yet again their synopsis of a movie is a straight up mess. The movie is just as disappointing, there’s a mystery of “the inversion” for the first 10 or 20 minutes, then it’s all given away in a flashback and the rest of the movie is just...

The Mummy

Tom Cruise stars in this spectacular version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Absolutely fantastic movie that I truly regret not seeing in theaters. The special effects were on point, the acting was great and the plot made a whole lot of sense, all of which was panned by the critics, incorrectly so in my humble opinion. I really hope this movie finds it’s audience in DVD sales, the Universal Dark Universe has some good stuff coming if they’re all of this caliber.

Spectre

A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. The best of Daniel Craig’s Bond films, it was a pleasure to see him finally get the memo that Bond doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, and doesn’t need to run like a drunkard. ┬áThe nods to the previous films were subtle but appropriate and both Dave Bautista and Christoph Waltz were pitch perfect as the villains...
