Created by Pendleton Ward. With John DiMaggio, Jeremy Shada, Tom Kenny, Hynden Walch. A 12-year-old boy and his best friend, wise 28-year-old dog with magical powers, go on a series of surreal adventures with each other. I pushed this off as something to watch because of how wacky and weird the first couple episodes I watched were. It wasn’t until I got a xbox game for free that I realized this might have something more to offer, and the series on the whole delivered one of the deepest emotional cuts that I’ve seen in animation in a long time.

Directed by Michael Dougherty. With Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Ken Watanabe. The crypto-zoological agency Monarch faces off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. Absolutely fantastic followup to the 2014 Godzilla film, I enjoyed nearly ever moment of the film. There’s a couple plot points that they follow that don’t really interest me, but in the spirit of not spoiling it: man this was a great film. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Mimi Leder. With Felicity Jones, Armie Hammer, Justin Theroux, Sam Waterston. The true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights, and the early cases of a historic career that lead to her nomination and confirmation as U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice. Felicity Jones is great but that mouth prosthetic is distracting as hell. I really did enjoy the movie, just wish they hadn’t made the bionics so apparent. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by McG. With Jack Gore, Miya Cech, Benjamin Flores Jr., Alessio Scalzotto. Four misfit teenagers join forces to save the world when an alien invasion interrupts their summer camp.

Directed by Marc Forster. With Brad Pitt, Mireille Enos, Daniella Kertesz, James Badge Dale. Former United Nations employee Gerry Lane traverses the world in a race against time to stop the Zombie pandemic that is toppling armies and governments, and threatening to destroy humanity itself. I’m not sure if I can ever forgive them for changing the entire premise of the franchise, but the movie, that shares nothing with the book, ended up being an ok thing to watch. Buy On Amazon!

Batman, Batgirl and Robin forge an alliance with The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to fight against the Turtles’ sworn enemy, The Shredder, who has teamed up with Ra’s Al Ghul and The League Of Assassins. This ended up being a much better film than I was expecting it to be. This style of TMNT animation is new to me, but the characterizations and animations were spot on. They got bonus points for using one of Batgirl’s best costumes and for having the two villains team up in...

Super-assassin John Wick is on the run after killing a member of the international assassin’s guild, and with a $14 million price tag on his head – he is the target of hit men and women everywhere. I rewatched the first two movies before going to this one, I feel like that might have been a mistake though. Perhaps it was because I had a couple $10 beers in the movie theater’s bar beforehand, but I wasn’t especially impressed with this film. It wasn’t as great as...
