Urge

A club owner (Pierce Brosnan) promotes a new drug called URGE which causes people to lose their inhibitions. Things take a sinister turn when primal impulses become uncontrollable. I wouldn’t have recognized Danny Masterson, but because of the recent rash of accusations of rape and physical abuse that he’s been involved with, then the continued involvement with the cult of Scientology…well I had loaded opinions when he came on screen. Only reason I watched this was because of Pierce Brosnan and it was free to stream on Amazon prime. Believe me when I tell you, this movie is not worth...

V For Vendetta

Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot! Guy Fawkes and his companions Did the scheme contrive, To blow the King and Parliament All up alive. Threescore barrels, laid below, To prove old England’s overthrow. But, by God’s providence, him they catch, With a dark lantern, lighting a match! A stick and a stake For King James’s sake! If you won’t give me one, I’ll take two, The better for me, And the worse for you. A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,...

Thor: Ragnarok

Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization. Absolutely the best Thor movie that Marvel has ever put out. It’s not a high bar to reach, but man, this is was a fun movie to watch. I’ll say this, there’s a couple scenes in the trailers that are straight up fucking LIES. I’m ok with that, it really made those scenes even better. This was a great film that...

Atomic Blonde

Charlize Theron stars as a secret agent who gets double-crossed as she attempts to escape out of Berlin with a priceless dossier in this breakneck action-thriller. Completely forgettable, there’s nothing about this film that even remotely caught my interest. It felt like the director (David Leitch) knew there were music related movies out there and had no clue what the rest of Hollywood was doing and made it up himself. There was nothing interesting about this film, catch it while you’re high or drunk and didn’t pay for it, nothing about this movie is worth what I paid for it.

Nights Into Dreams

LSD in video game form? What the fuck did I just play? half the buttons don’t work and there’s no damn story. It’s actually THIS MONTH’s game with gold on the X-Box One. Seriously! A game from over 20 years ago! With buggy buttons and graphics that have not aged well at all. MS is on some drugs!

Perfect Dark

A first-person shooter that mixes spy and sci-fi, Perfect Dark is both a thoroughly engrossing one-player experience and a riotously fun multiplayer romp. Easily one of the best games of its genre on any video game console, this long-awaited follow-up to GoldenEye 007 is a must-have for Nintendo 64 owners–and a damn good reason to be one if you’re not. I guess we’re too far removed from the generation that Perfect Dark comes from for me to really make a good connection with this. The game is rough and the story is limited and the VO work is just unfortunate. I wasn’t able to...

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man [Tom Holland] begins to navigate his new identity as the web-slinging super hero under the watchful eye of his mentor Tony Stark. Ahhhh, get it? Spider-man is in the MCU, so it’s his homecoming IRL. There’s also a Homecoming dance in the film! GET IT?! Still a good film, though I nearly turned it off during some of the highschool cringe scenes. I’m happy they cast all the supporting cast as young highschool kids and not 27 year old actors that try to look younger for the parts.

Carrie (1979)

Based on a Stephen King novel, Carrie is the story of a girl brought up, almost in isolation, by her psychotically religious mother Margaret. I neglected to watch both this, the original Carrie and the remake within a suitable timespan, and it was so long ago that I watched the remake of Carrie that it’s not even logged on my blog, but man this feels like a vastly different experience than the Chloe Grace Moretz version, with much more nudity and a whole lot more menstrual frustration. This is the obvious superior to the remake, I’m sad that I hadn’t...

Portal To Hell!!!

A crusty and recluse superintendent is thrown into the ultimate fight against evil when a couple of cultists open a portal to the ancient and mysical city of R’lyeh, awakening slumbering god. The synopsis is longer than the ‘film’ was, but I really did enjoy the short form. Also, the guest star ‘god’ was pretty cool to see, we don’t get to see the sleeping one too often in motion pictures.
