AMC Stubs Subscription Service Hits 900,000 Members

AMC Theatres’ Stubs A-List program, which allows customers to see three movies a week for $19.95 a month, has hit 900,000 subscribers. That figure is far ahead of the original projection, ann… I’m in love with my A-List subscription, but I wish there was an A+ List where only “good” movie watchers were permitted in and were actively monitored for disqualifying behaviors. The last movie I went to was Hobbs & Shaw, and while it wasn’t a great film, it was still made less great with the loud and obnoxious behavior of the audience. At one point, someone pulled out...

Critters Attack!

Directed by Bobby Miller. With Tashiana Washington, Ava Preston, Jack Fulton, Jaeden Noel. Follows 20-year-old Drea, who reluctantly takes a job babysitting for a professor of a college she hopes to attend. Struggling to entertain the professor’s children Trissy and Jake, along with her own little brother Phillip , Drea takes them on a hike, unaware that mysterious alien critters have crash-landed and started devouring every living thing they encounter. This felt exactly like the first few Critters movies, for better or worse. There were a few times that I laughed hilariously out loud at the silly camp horror, I...

Tacoma

The next game from Fullbright, the creators of Gone Home. What mysteries await, 200,000 miles from Earth? Fantastic game with a mechanic that I’ve seen used before in lesser games, but used perfectly here. This isn’t a long game, maybe 4 hours if you really stretch it, but it’s tightly scripted and gets out right when it should. There was a point where I found a political pamphlet in someone’s bunk and I thought to myself, “oh no, I think I know where they’re going with this” and based on that thought I really didn’t see the ending coming when...

Sneakers

Directed by Phil Alden Robinson. With Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd, Sidney Poitier, Jo Marr. A security pro finds his past coming back to haunt him, when he and his unique team are tasked with retrieving a particularly important item. Neakers is a fun hacker movie from the early ’90s that got some thing right, got many things wrong, but still had it’s heart in the right place. There’s a scene in which the main guy “hacks” a door, I saw that in a reddit thread and it amused me, so here we are, watching this movie. It was fun if...

High Life

Directed by Claire Denis. With Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, Mia Goth. A father and his daughter struggle to survive in deep space where they live in isolation. “Oblivion Awaits” sounds about right. Oblivion is what I was wishing for by the end of this film, which is about nothing, nothingness, and becoming nothing from something. Buy On Amazon!

Tolkien

Directed by Dome Karukoski. With Nicholas Hoult, Lily Collins, Colm Meaney, Derek Jacobi. The formative years of the orphaned author J.R.R. Tolkien as he finds friendship, love and artistic inspiration among a group of fellow outcasts at school. A good film, but I don’t think it went into the horrors of world war 1 deep enough to really show it’s effects on Tolkien’s stories. Buy On Amazon!

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Directed by Terry Gilliam. With José Luis Ferrer, Ismael Fritschi, Juan López-Tagle, Adam Driver. Toby, a disillusioned film director, becomes pulled into a world of time-jumping fantasy when a Spanish cobbler believes him to be Sancho Panza. He gradually becomes unable to tell dreams from reality. Fantastic movie that has really confused and confounded me. I’m getting to be an Adam Driver fan. Buy On Amazon!

Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Directed by Mark Waters. With Jim Carrey, Carla Gugino, Angela Lansbury, Ophelia Lovibond. The life of a businessman begins to change after he inherits six penguins, and as he transforms his apartment into a winter wonderland, his professional side starts to unravel. This came up in a discussion at work and I realized that I had never watched it before. I loved the original book as a child, and I gotta be honest, I stayed away from the movie because of my fond memories of the book. Luckily this is one of Jim Carrey’s better kid safe films and hit...
