Fahrenheit 451

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television “family.” But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didn’t live in fear and to...

Jurassic World

Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) race to restore order at Jurassic World theme park when a ferocious genetically modified dinosaur escapes. I’m now of the opinion that while Jurassic World is a fun movie, it still doesn’t hold a candle to the original Jurassic Park. Too much CGI and too litte actual story.

The Little Hours

A forgetable but humorous movie with a ton of unexpected nudity in the third act. This movie gets a solid “meh” rating from me.

Impulse

I’m still only about half way through the first season, but I think I’m going to give the rest of it a hard pass, there’s too much angst and drama and not enough teleportation for my tastes.

Dropmix

I still think it’s a hard sell at $50 and would only suggest buying it if you can get it for around $25.

Sunshine

In 2057, the sun is dying, and a crew must reheat the star to save mankind in this limited-release film directed by Danny Boyle. Bonuses: commentary, deleted scenes, production diaries, short films. Murphy’s Law meets Event Horizon, with all the shenanigans you could imagine. Funny story though, my wife asked me to get this film because she heard the soundtrack, then it took me about a month to convince her to watch it. Fun to see Chris Evans with normal people arms instead of Captain American arms.
