Astronaut Niko Breckenridge and her young crew face unimaginable danger as they go on a high-risk mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. I’m a big fan of Katie Sackoff, but this isn’t her best work. There’s some extremely uneven writing here, but I feel like it’s the start of a great storyline. Unfortunately though, the negatives far outweigh the positives and i can’t really recommend the series. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by John August. With Ryan Reynolds, Hope Davis, Melissa McCarthy, Elle Fanning. A troubled actor, a television show runner, and an acclaimed videogame designer find their lives intertwining in mysterious and unsettling ways. I have no clue how this ended up on my dvr, but I watched it anyways. If you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest going in knowing absolutely nothing about it. I enjoyed the experience, but man I was confused for about 2/3 of the movie. Buy On Amazon!
With Ashley Johnson, Jeremy Crutchley, Owen Dennis, Ernie Hudson. 12-year-old Tulip finds herself on a mysterious train with an endless number of cars, each one its own universe, and must find a way to get home. There was an episode of Adventure time that feels like it was the inspiration for the basic premise here, I honestly thought they were going to stretch it out much longer than they did, there is certainly room for that to happen. This was fantastic and short and I highly suggest it to anyone that has a couple hours to kill, each episode is...
“Aladdin” is the exciting tale of the charming street rat Aladdin, the courageous and self-determined Princess Jasmine and the Genie who may be the key to their future. Directed by Guy Ritchie, who… While Will Smith’s genie is slightly too derivitive of Robin Williams’ own performance, there was never a time that I felt like he wasn’t giving 100% in his performance. This was the first time I remember hearing him sing in a film, and this was the first time we’ve heard anything new musically from him in a long while, I’m pretty sure the end credits song is...
Directed by Edgar Wright. With Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Kate Ashfield, Lucy Davis. A man’s uneventful life is disrupted by the zombie apocalypse. The man with red on him, I told my wife about how hilarious this movie was, bought it, put it on, then she didn’t laugh at it even once. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by FÃ©lix EnrÃquez AlcalÃ¡. With Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber. A two-hour Battlestar Galactica special that tells the story of the Battlestar Pegasus several months prior to it finding the Galactica. Suffice to say, the Pegasus was up to absolutely no good before they ran into the Galactica. This is more of a “what if BSG was a bunch of ass holes”, instead of being the paragons of virtue they were elsewhere in the show. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Jan de Bont. With Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bullock, Joe Morton. A young police officer must prevent a bomb exploding aboard a city bus by keeping its speed above 50 mph. A great movie, but man I lose track of what happens after they get off the bus so easily. To remind everyone else, they go into a hole in the ground and get on a subway car, which then crashes into a construction site. Buy On Amazon!
Step aboard the USS Orville (ECV-197), the Planetary Union’s finest mid-level exploratory class cruiser. With every room on every deck recreated with painstaking accuracy, you are free to explore the ship at your leisure and engage in all manner of shenanigans! Oh holy crap, I was just on the actual ship. This is fantastic, with all sorts of easter eggs and bells and whistles added in, and best of all, it’s free! Buy On Amazon!
