Into The Forest

2 sisters must fight to survive a terrifying global blackout in this riveting apocalyptic thriller. Amazon’s inability to write a truthful plot synopsis has bit me in the ass yet again. This is not a “riveting apocalyptic thriller”, this is “two girls figure out how to survive without power for over a year. Their ultimate solution was so mind boggling stupid and out of the blue that I can’t recommend the film and even Ellen Page’s acting couldn’t save this one. ¬†There were a few moments towards the start of the film that I got a distinct “Last of Us”...

Kill Switch

In a future world, a physicist’s experiment to harness unlimited energy goes wrong. Chased by drones and soldiers, Will Porter must race through an imploding world and retrieve the Redivider box to save his family…and all of humanity! I saw Dan Stevens was in this and jumped at the chance to watch it. I wish I hadn’t. This is obviously a cash grab by someone. His name is getting pretty big now that he’s doing Legion or Beauty and The Beast, and I guess this movie was made at a time that Mr Stevens wasn’t very discerning when it came...

Whataburger No Longer Has The Monterey Melt?!?

Went to a local what-a-burger today and was told they no longer carry the Monterey Melt, which was my go-to for when I was needing a near death experience and/or was drunk. This, so soon after Wendy’s discontinued their spicy chicken nuggets has me questioning why I even bother eating out.

Die Another Day

Bond must discover the connection between a North Korean terrorist and an adventurous diamond broker whose looks may be deceiving. Pierce Brosnan’s final outing as Bond, with special guest star Halley Berry as Jinx. I always got the feeling this was supposed to be a stealth pilot for a movie series of her own, but never got off the ground. First appearance as John Cleese as Q, he was introduced in the previous film, but wasn’t officially “Q” yet. Bond is captured by the North Koreans and only saved when the UK does a prisoner exchange. The film actually opens...

I share those concerns. I have...

CHiPs

Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol (CHP). They are teamed together, but kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done. Unlike the Baywatch movie, this remake of a 80’s classic television show shares nothing with the source material other than the most basic concept of “two men on motorcycles”. One of them doesn’t even work for the CHP! Dax and Michael Pena are great actors and they’re pretty funny in this, but naming after the ChiPs tv series was a mistake imho, that show as all about how the cops were the force...

Equals

Nia (Kristen Stewart) and Silas (Nicholas Hoult) begin a forbidden and passionate romance in a futuristic society where emotions have been outlawed, leading them to attempt a dangerous escape in this enthralling sci-fi love story. It’s been done before (and done better), but it’s always nice to see slight variations on a well trodden movie trope. Kristen Stewarts seems to have been born for this role and Nicholas Hoult plays off her very well.¬† I did see the final plot thread coming a mile away, but I think that made it much more enjoyable when it finally paid off in...

Child’s Play 3

Eight years after seemingly destroying the killer doll, Andy Barclay (Justin Whalin) turns 16 and is placed in a military school. Meanwhile, the greedy president of Play Pals Toy Company decides to resurrect the popular Good Guys doll line, confident that all the bad publicity is forgotten. As the assembly line recreates the first doll from a mass of melted plastic, the spirit of Chucky returns to renew his quest and seek revenge on Andy. Once again it’s up to Andy to stop the unrelenting killer in this fast-paced thriller. This feels like a horror film that was made on...

Snowden

Oliver Stone tackles the untold story behind Edward Snowden’s controversial decision to expose the NSA’s shocking surveillance activities in this politically-charged thriller. Seems terrifying that Snowden’s actions seem so minor in today’s political climate. With Donald Trump making American less and less safe with every passing moment, do agencies like the NSA or CIA need to have the tools that were taken away after they were brought to light by Snowden? When will Snowden get his rightful pardon? Sadly, not for another 4 years at the very least. The movie was well done, the story well laid out and understandable,...

True Grit (2010)

Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with “true grit,” Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn. Lots of big names, nearly every face was recognizable from better movies, Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, and Matt Damon headline and a few very recognizable faces show up towards the end of the film. I actually laughed when the main antagonist shows up. The one good thing that I can say about the cast is that Hailee...
