Snowpiercer

Created by Josh Friedman, Graeme Manson. With Jennifer Connelly, Daveed Diggs, Mickey Sumner, Alison Wright. Seven years after the world has become a frozen wasteland, the remnants of humanity inhabit a perpetually-moving train that circles the globe, where class warfare, social injustice and the politics of survival play out. Based on the same comic book series that the 2013 movie was based on, this television series has all the same basic story points, but goes in completely different directions, with the divergence starting at the end of episode one. It’s a good story, with fantastic special effects, and an excellent...

The Da Vinci Code

Directed by Ron Howard. With Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Jean Reno, Ian McKellen. A murder inside the Louvre, and clues in Da Vinci paintings, lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years, which could shake the foundations of Christianity. I skipped this whole series of movies originally because of the sinister religious angle, the made up insanity of the puzzles, the fake history, and honestly it just seemed boring. It really was a boring film, and the religious storyline was belabored, but Tom Hanks really did it for me, though his...

Greyhound

Directed by Aaron Schneider. With Tom Hanks, Elisabeth Shue, Stephen Graham, Matt Helm. Early in World War II, an inexperienced U.S. Navy captain must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolfpacks. Tom Hanks mentioned that he was heartbroken that the film wasn’t being shown in theaters due to the global pandemic that has killed over 130,000 americans, and due to the incompetence of the Republican party, is due to kill thousands more and cause an economic apocalypse that the country hasn’t seen since the 1920’s Great Depression. I agree with him too though, Greyhound would have been...

The Jungle Book

Directed by Jon Favreau. With Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba. After a threat from the tiger Shere Khan forces him to flee the jungle, a man-cub named Mowgli embarks on a journey of self discovery with the help of panther Bagheera and free-spirited bear Baloo. Not necessarily a remake of the animated version that came out 50 years prior, this is practically a brand new story that just happens to share elements of the previous version, including the songs that we all knew and loved. Not surprisingly, the racism from the original version is left in the...

The Jungle Book

Directed by Wolfgang Reitherman, James Algar, Jack Kinney. With Phil Harris, Sebastian Cabot, Louis Prima, Bruce Reitherman. Bagheera the Panther and Baloo the Bear have a difficult time trying to convince a boy to leave the jungle for human civilization. After a discussion about the live action remakes that Disney has been doing, my wife told me that she hadn’t seen the new Jungle book one yet, and in fact didn’t remember much about the original animated version either, so here we are. It’s a fun movie that has some incredibly problematic portions, with white guys doing their best black...

Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds

Directed by Tyler Perry. With Tyler Perry, Gabrielle Union, Thandie Newton, Eddie Cibrian. Businessman Wesley Deeds is jolted out of his scripted life when he meets Lindsey, a single mother who works on the cleaning crew in his office building. I thought this was a completely different movie, but “Good Deeds” was still and enjoyable experience. It was difficult to get back Thandie Newton playing someone without upper class elements or at the very least upper class aspirations. Buy On Amazon!

+1

Directed by Dennis Iliadis. With Rhys Wakefield, Logan Miller, Ashley Hinshaw, Natalie Hall. Three college friends hit the biggest party of the year, where a mysterious phenomenon disrupts the night, quickly descending into a chaos that challenges their friendships – and whether they can stay alive. I found this on one of those “hidden gems” lists and it’s not exactly what i thought it was going to be, but it’s more than I was expecting, and it wasn’t until I was writing this review that I realized that lady in the poster isn’t wearing much clothing, my goodness. There’s nudity...

Iron Man 2

Directed by Jon Favreau. With Robert Downey Jr., Mickey Rourke, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle. With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father’s legacy. Why did I go back to watch the best movie that Marvel Studios has put out starring Iron Man? Psh, I need no reason, I still think this is the best they’ve done with the Iron Man suits.

A message I sent my sister about a dentist appointment I had today

ok, so first off they called me the day before and told me what to expect when I get there and they asked me all the standard questions of if I knew anyone with colds or corona, if I’ve traveled, loss sense of smell or taste, or had a temperature, all of which I said no to they asked what car i would be driving and that i should arrive about 10 minutes before my appointment and they would come out to me and that I should not go inside, they no longer have a waiting room so I got...
