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...

TRON

Directed by Steven Lisberger. With Jeff Bridges, Bruce Boxleitner, David Warner, Cindy Morgan. A computer hacker is abducted into the digital world and forced to participate in gladiatorial games where his only chance of escape is with the help of a heroic security program. Some mind blowing ideas that are done in a hacky way, but the story lead to Tron: Legacy, so I can’t complain at all. Buy On Amazon!

The Dead Don’t Die

Directed by Jim Jarmusch. With Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tom Waits, ChloĆ« Sevigny. The peaceful town of Centerville finds itself battling a zombie horde as the dead start rising from their graves. Why don’t the dead die? Well, there’s a theme song for that. This is a goofy and surreal zombie story that has enough of a weird element that I’d suggest you watch it while not being distracted by something else. Buy On Amazon!

Holmes & Watson

Directed by Etan Cohen. With Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Ralph Fiennes, Rebecca Hall. A humorous take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. A previous Holmes movie named “Without A Clue” asked “what if Sherlock Holmes was an alcoholic idiot?” and answered it with “then Dr Watson must be the brains of the operation!”. “Holmes & Watson” asks a similar question : “what if Holmes AND Watson are idiots?”. The answer is less funny than ‘Without A Clue’ but certainly not worthy of the negative critical reviews that followed it’s release. It’s exactly...
