Venom

Tom Hardy stars as the lethal protector and anti-hero Venom – one of Marvel’s most enigmatic and complex characters. This wasn’t the venom I knew from the comic books, but some weird combination of The Odd Couple, The Darkness, and Forest Gump. Considering what Sony’s done to the other Spider-man related movies, I’m willing to consider this as a goof movie, just not a great movie, and absolutely mess of an MCU movie.  Luckily this isn’t a “proper” MCU movie, but a “Sony’s Universe of Marvel Movies” that will soon include Silver Sable, Black Cat, and more Venom movies. Maybe. ...

Batman: White Knight

The impossible has happened: The Joker has become…sane. Batman: White Knight follows the man now known as Jack Napier as he embarks on a quest to heal the city he once terrorized. After reconciling with his long-suffering partner, Harley Quinn, he sets in motion a carefully plotted campaign to discredit the one person whom he views as Gotham City’s true enemy: Batman. His crusade exposes a decades-long history of corruption within the Gotham City Police Department and transforms Napier into a city councilman and civic hero. But when the sins of his past return to threaten everything that he has...

Robocop

In a dystopic and crime-ridden Detroit, a terminally wounded cop returns to the force as a powerful cyborg haunted by submerged memories. I turned this on to have something in the background while I moved my office equipment and books out of my office, my plan is to repaint the room and get everything back in. I ended up spending more time watching the movie than moving stuff, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. On Amazon Prime, I’m told this is the “X Rated” version with more blood and/or guts.

Bratz

High School is about to get a makeover when the highly popular dolls with a passion for fashion come to life in their first-ever live-action theatrical debut. I honestly cannot tell you why I chose this movie to try out the (new to me) Tubi app on my Roku, but this is the movie I chose and man am I happy I did.  Tubi itself is an ok service, but it has several of the problems that I associate with first generation streaming apps: weird movie choices, out of sync audio, ads that run at weird times (and 3 seconds...

Amazon Prime Video still needs some TLC

Amazon had the new Doctor Who series for only $3! but then didn’t tell anyone that it was going to be on a 24 hour delay, so I just found a stream online and watched it that way. Additionally the Amazon Prime app has no functional way to see what television episodes I own but have not watched. Hulu used to have this back in the day, but that was 10 years ago, so I’m sure they don’t even have that high tech system any more.

Michael becomes a hurricane as it heads to US

MIAMI (AP) – The Latest on Tropical Storm Michael (all times local):   This is heading my way and we’re already seeing gas stations and grocery stores shutting down due to lack of product. My car is on E. I just painted one of my rooms at my house, so everything from that room is all spread around the rest of my house, so tonight I’m going to be moving everything back to where it needs to be, quickly, but my back and feet are still hurting from a 13k step day on friday then all the painting and moving...

Blockers

Three parents try to stop their daughters from having sex on Prom night. Fun movie about parents being unable to come to terms with their kids growing up. John Cena is in it, and he’s hilarious?

Star Trek Ten Forward Vodka

This is not good vodka and gave me a blistering headache the day after I sipped on about 4 ounces. It’s supposedly been flown into space, but there’s no pictures from the endeavor, so I’m going to assume that’s just BS marketing fluff. The bottle is VERY pretty though, so this will look very lovely in my display case.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Scott Pilgrim just met the girl of his dreams…literally. But in order for them to date, he must defeat her 7 evil exes. From the genre-smashing director of Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead. The cast of this movie, boy howdy, so many big names in some absolutely fantastic performances. I love the feel of the movie, how it’s both a small movie in scope (dude wants to date a girl, but he’s already dating someone!) but so large as well (seven deadly exes want to fight!). It’s on Netflix right now.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

When his job along with that of his co-worker are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined. A wonderful movie that has a great premise and an even great execution.
