Marvel’s Inhumans (ABC)

Inhumans on the moon! Inhumans in Hawaii! I paid $17 a ticket for two people to go see this at an IMAX theater, but it was utter trash. It would have been ok to watch it on TV, we fully expect Marvel’s television efforts to be low budget and make nearly no sense, but this was the worst Marvel experience I’ve had yet, which is a tragic thing to say. The CGI, when used, was pretty great to see, but they only had about 5 combat cgi shots, the rest were poorly choreographed hand to hand scenes. Even the normal...

Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars

Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer and DeRay Davis lend their voices to an all-new military Sci-Fi adventure from the writer of Starship Troopers and Robocop, Ed Neumeier. This is as good as the original movie, it’s cgi, but it’s absolutely beautiful cgi. I highly recommend watching!

AeonFlux

Aeon Flux is a mysterious assassin working for the Monicans, a group of rebels trying to overthrow the government. When she is a sent on a mission to kill the Chairman, a whole new mystery is found. Charlize Theron in science fiction? Yes Please! I had forgotten how well done this movie was, but it’s free on Amazon Prime and my wife mentioned it to me sometime in the last week, so here I am, watching it again.

Buster’s Mal Heart

In this bold thriller spiked with dark humor, Rami Malek (Mr. Robot) is a family man whose chance encounter with a conspiracy-obsessed drifter leaves him on the run from the police and an impending event known as The Inversio See that missing “n” in the synopsis? That’s the way it is on Amazon.com, yet again their synopsis of a movie is a straight up mess. The movie is just as disappointing, there’s a mystery of “the inversion” for the first 10 or 20 minutes, then it’s all given away in a flashback and the rest of the movie is just...

The Mummy

Tom Cruise stars in this spectacular version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy. Absolutely fantastic movie that I truly regret not seeing in theaters. The special effects were on point, the acting was great and the plot made a whole lot of sense, all of which was panned by the critics, incorrectly so in my humble opinion. I really hope this movie finds it’s audience in DVD sales, the Universal Dark Universe has some good stuff coming if they’re all of this caliber.

Spectre

A cryptic message from Bond’s past sends him on a trail to uncover a sinister organization. While M battles political forces to keep the secret service alive, Bond peels back the layers of deceit to reveal the terrible truth behind SPECTRE. The best of Daniel Craig’s Bond films, it was a pleasure to see him finally get the memo that Bond doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, and doesn’t need to run like a drunkard.  The nods to the previous films were subtle but appropriate and both Dave Bautista and Christoph Waltz were pitch perfect as the villains...

Paranormal Whacktivity

A sexy and hilarious spoof about a couple who have just moved into a new home to consummate their relationship, but find peril around every corner due to an evil presence that haunts them whenever they attempt to be intimate. It’s a spoof of Paranormal Activity, but in this one the demon is after booty. It’s a delightfully low budget spoof and I loved every minute of it. Also, in the tread of cheap spoofs, that girl on the cover of the movie isn’t actually in the movie.

Rememory

Available exclusively on Google Play for free for a limited time. The film explores the unexplained death of Gordon Dunn (Martin Donovan), a visionary scientific pioneer whose body is found shortly after the unveiling of his newest work: a device able to extract, record and play a person’s memories. Gordon’s wife, Carolyn (Julia Ormond), retreats into her house and cuts off contact with the outside world when a mysterious man (Peter Dinklage) shows up. After stealing the machine, he uses it to try and solve the mystery, beginning an investigation of memories that lead him to unexpected and dangerous places....

Nobility: The Series

An independent pilot shot for well under $100K – Imagine what could be done if they had a real budget! When the dysfunctional government, The Confederate Alliance, decides to create a documentary of the flagship Nobility, political turmoil breaks out as it becomes apparent that the crew of the Nobility aren’t the heroes they were looking for – but they just may be the heroes humanity needs. Well under $100k apparently? This follows a long list of badly made fan fiction movies that I’m hoping the new Star Trek rules will hamper from future release. The CGI was amazingly well...

Into The Forest

2 sisters must fight to survive a terrifying global blackout in this riveting apocalyptic thriller. Amazon’s inability to write a truthful plot synopsis has bit me in the ass yet again. This is not a “riveting apocalyptic thriller”, this is “two girls figure out how to survive without power for over a year. Their ultimate solution was so mind boggling stupid and out of the blue that I can’t recommend the film and even Ellen Page’s acting couldn’t save this one.  There were a few moments towards the start of the film that I got a distinct “Last of Us”...
