Life Of The Party

When her husband dumps her, Deanna (Melissa McCarthy) goes back to college at the same school as her daughter. Embracing freedom, fun and frat boys, Deanna finds her true self. One of Melissa McCarthy’s few comedy roles where it was a feel good comedy instead of a hateful or spiteful plot where she flails about commenting on hilariously overweight, awkward, or incompetent she is.  “Life of the Party” is downright enjoyable and easily one of her best movies yet.

Against her father’s final wishes, Lara leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island.

The Post

A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government. Inspired by true events. Great performances by Streep and Hanks, which while expected, was still nice to see. Streep particularly did a great job as a woman thrown outside of her comfort zone, clutching her pearls for a brief moment, then steeling herself into taking action against people that were both her friends and in her close social circles.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Robbed of his birthright, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. Once he pulls the sword from the stone, he must acknowledge his true legacy…like it or not. Watched with the wife and she enjoyed it for the most part. I liked it for the most part again, Charlie Hunnam is so dreamy!

Extinction (2015)

Nine years after the zombie apocalypse, the undead has evolved to wipe out the human race. This isn’t the Netflix one that just came out, but it showed up in a google search when I was looking for the Netflix one. It’s more cgi stages and cgi effects with some amazing practical creature effects with that one guy from Burn Notice and that other one guy from LOST. The only reason I would suggest the film is the creature effects, cause the cgi and acting are b-grade level at best.

Conquerors’ Pride (The Conquerors Saga)

Timothy Zahn, Hugo Award-winning author of The New York Times best-selling Star Wars trilogy, blazes a spectacular new path across the sky in an epic original novel of star-spanning action adventure, mystery and intrigue. A long era of peace and prosperity in the interstellar Commonwealth has suddenly come to an end. Four alien starships of unknown origin have attacked, without provocation, an eight-ship Peacemaker task force, utterly destroying it in six savage minutes. The authorities claim there were no survivors. But Lord Stewart Cavanaugh, a former member of Parliament, has learned through back channels that one man may have survived...

Animatrix

From the creators of The Matrix trilogy, this is a groundbreaking collection of nine short films from seven of the world’s leading anime directors. After watching the original Matrix in 4k, I redeemed the 4k digital code on Vudu and noticed I had a $3 credit, and thus I now own the Animatrix too. There’s really only a couple shorts here that really interest me, but there’s a bit of something for everyone!

The Matrix 4k

In the near future, a computer hacker named Neo discovers that all life on Earth may be nothing more than an elaborate facade created by a malevolent cyber-intelligence, for the purpose of placating us while our life essence is ‘farmed’ to fuel the Matrix’s campaign of domination in the ‘real’ world. He joins like-minded Rebel warriors Morpheus and Trinity in their struggle to overthrow the Matrix. I’ve had a 4k tv for most of the year, but this was my first 4k disk, all my other 4k movies have been streaming and holy crap is there a difference between the...
