The Cave

Assemble a team of unlikely adventurers – each with their own unique personalities and stories– and descend into the heart of a sprawling, sentient cave in order to find that which is most important to each of them. The Cave has had millennia to spruce up the place so prepare to dive deep and solve the puzzles hidden within exotic locations including a subterranean amusement park, medieval castle, and fully armed nuclear research facility. The Cave is waiting. A cute puzzle platformer that I just don’t have the patience for, I gave it about an hour of running back and...

Predators

Robert Rodriguez presents a bold new chapter in the Predator universe. The film stars Oscar-winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) as Royce, a mercenary who reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers – mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members – human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators. I had to do a double take when I saw the year this came out, I really feel...

Mr & Mrs Smith

A typical married couple – a little bored with their relationship – come to discover that they are enemy assassins hired to kill each other. This is among the best films that Angelina Jolie’s done, and she’s done a very large amount of movies that I have great respect for. The chemistry she has with Pitt in Mr & Mrs Smith is absolutely electric. There’s a lot of big names playing supporting roles here, Vince Vaughn as Pitt’s coworker, Michelle Monaghan as a random computer hardware specialist, then Jolie’s associates are all big names now, including Kerry Washington and Jennifer...

What We Do In The Shadows

Viago, Deacon, and Vladislav are vampires who are finding that modern life has them struggling with the mundane – like paying rent, keeping up with the chore wheel, trying to get into nightclubs, and overcoming flatmate conflicts. Included with Amazon Prime, this was directed by the same guy that did Thor: Ragnarok and shares the same sense of humor. It has a vastly lower budget, but who needs a big budget when you’re filming four vampire roommates making it in the big world?  This was indeed “Bloody Hilarious”

Jumper

The science fiction thriller leaps to a new realm with Jumper, which begins the epic adventures of a man who discovers that he has the exhilarating ability to instantly teleport anywhere in the world he can imagine. From New York to Tokyo, from the ruins of Rome to the heart of the Saharan Desert, anywhere is possible for David Rice (Hayden Christensen), until he begins to see his freedom is not total, and that he’s not alone… but part of an ongoing, global war that threatens the very survival of his rare and extraordinary kind. I love the concept and...

Night of The Comet

A huge comet passes near the earth, vaporizing nearly the whole planet. Only a few teenagers, who were inside a steel movie projection booth, survive–all those outside were turned to dust. It was getting late into the night and I wanted to put something on that wouldn’t take more than an hour, so I turnedon Pluto.tv on my Roku and it landed on this movie right as it was starting, so of course I had to re-watch it. This is a classic 80’s take on the idea of 99% of the planet going missing in some way, and for all...

Star Trek: First Contact

Capt. Picard and his crew follow the Borg back in time to stop them from preventing Earth from initiating first contact with Vulcans. Today’s First Contact Day! The blurb on the amazon cover is making my eye twitch though, “one of the best of the original…”  no, it’s not from the original series guys.
