Pacific Rim 4k

I’ve heard that this movie is pretty great in 4k and I found it for $9 at Target, so I jumped on it as quickly as possible, which it turns out was not as easy as I had assumed. We have several Targets here in town, and while the Target.com website suggested that the closest store had a couple copies, they did not, in fact, have any. They checked their internal inventory system and saw that there were two copies on the far far side of town, so I called that store and asked them to pull one for me,...

The Interview

A TV host and producer land an interview with Kim Jong-un, but plans change when the CIA recruits them to ‘take him out.’ I think this was actually one of the first movies I ever purchased digitally at full price, and now thanks to the miracle of Movies Anywhere, I was able to watch it again! It’s a funny movie.

Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare

In this sixth return to the horrifying world of Nightmare on Elm Street, the town of Springwood decides to forever end Freddy Krueger’s deadly hold on their dreams. Freddy finally confronts the one person he has never been able to defeat, a psychologist who now learns the source of her lifelong nightmares–Freddy’s daughter–in Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare. That’s the official amazon description, which spoils the only “fun” part of the movie: Freddy had a kid! And he had a wife! This was the first Freddy movie that I noticed is filed under “comedy horror” according to wikipedia, and after...

John Wick 2

Unlike the first John Wick film, this sequel has several moments that highlight the technological achievements, the best of course being the mirror room fight, boy howdy that was one hum dinger of a visual feast!

john wick 4k

I’ve seen John Wick about a dozen times at this point, but never in 4k! It’s still a good movie, even in 4k, though this first one didn’t really have much in it to highlight the 4k-ness of it’s true nature.

Crazy Rich Asians

Nearly every chinese actors you’ve ever seen in American films are represented here, and yet in some way this does not feel forced, unlike movies like the Meg where everything about the move just screams that it was made just to be sold to asians. It’s a fantastic movie with some really fantastic scenes both visually and plotwise. There’s a couple different plotlines going on, both of which are resolved satisfactorily.

Attack the Block

A teen gang in South London defend their block from an alien invasion. Free to watch on Vudu, and if you were able to watch it last night, you got a $2 to your account! I love this movie, it was great when I watched it originally, I liked the alien design and soundtrack, but it turns out that a couple of the cast went on to do bigger and better things, namely John Boyega and Jodie Whittaker.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors

A psychiatrist familiar with knife-wielding dream demon Freddy Krueger helps teens at a mental hospital battle the killer who is invading their dreams. A band of kids at a psych hospital are taught by a familiar face to torture and kill Freddy. There’s a whole bunch of question choices going on here, but this was still a fun Freddy film.

sucker punch 4k

Born from the creative vision of filmmaker Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300), this epic action fantasy launches from the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Locked away against her will, Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four fellow captives – outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens), fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung) and reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish) – to band together and try to escape their terrible fate at the hands of their captors Blue (Oscar...

blade runner 2049 4k

Bought this during Vudu’s black friday sale. It’s a great film in 4k but now I wish I had waited and got the disk, cause all these 4k movies being streamed is killing my comcast cap.
