“Civil War” Review

Civil War: Directed by Alex Garland. With Nick Offerman, Kirsten Dunst, Wagner Moura, Jefferson White. A journey across a dystopian future America, following a team of military-embedded journalists as they race against time to reach DC before rebel factions descend upon the White House. The director of this film has done a few movies that are series thinking exercises, 28 Day later, Ex-Machina, Annihilation being among them, so when I heard he was doing a study on a possible future during the tail end of our next American Civil War AND it was being released through A24 I knew that...

“Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” Review

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour: Directed by Sam Wrench. With Taylor Swift, Mike Meadows, Max Bernstein, Paul Sidoti. Experience the Eras Tour concert, performed by the one and only Taylor Swift. If you like Taylor Swift, I’m sure that you’ve seen this by now, either in person or at the theaters, but if you just passively enjoy her stuff, this would be a great way to spend a few hours if just for the pageantry and experience.

Star Trek: Picard: Firewall

Two years after the USS Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, Seven of Nine finds herself rejected for a position in Starfleet…and instead finds a new home with the interstellar rogue law enforcement corps known as the Fenris Rangers. The Rangers seem like an ideal fit for Seven—but to embrace t For all the Trek content we’ve had in the past, hundreds of hours of tv, dozens of hours of movies and literally thousands of Trek books, the amount of time spent outside of the Federation “safe space” is practically nil, with nearly every aspect of the previous works having...

“Corner Office” Review

Corner Office: Directed by Joachim Back. With Jon Hamm, Danny Pudi, Sarah Gadon, Christopher Heyerdahl. As Orson, The Authority’s newest employee, finds himself trapped in the absurdities of corporate life, his alienation deepens when he discovers a room he’s told doesn’t exist. A surreal absurdist look into the insanity and monotony of office life and the lengths that some people either willingly or unwittingly sink to trying to find meaning and fulfillment. It’s a great movie that had me guessing right up until the end as to the veracity of our narrator and if his version of reality was one...

“Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey” Review

Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey: Directed by Rhys Frake-Waterfield. With Nikolai Leon, Maria Taylor, Natasha Rose Mills, Amber Doig-Thorne. After Christopher Robin abandons them for college, Pooh and Piglet embark on a bloody rampage as they search for a new source of food. As far as public domain horror parodies go, this one isn’t too bad, my only complaint is that the creatures of the 100 Acre Wood are obviously just people in some pretty terrible masks, gloves, and body suits. The actual premise works for me on multiple levels, but I honestly would have taken that premise in a different...

“Fallout” Review

Fallout: Created by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Graham Wagner. With Ella Purnell, Aaron Moten, Walton Goggins, Moises Arias. In a future, post-apocalyptic Los Angeles brought about by nuclear decimation, citizens must live in underground bunkers to protect themselves from radiation, mutants and bandits. About as perfect of a video game adaptation that could be possibly made, I think it helps that the universe lends itself to unique settings and characters for each vault that opens on it’s own schedule, so while they were able to accurately capture the humor and visual style of the games, they were also free to create their...

“The Terminal Man” Review

The Terminal Man: Directed by Mike Hodges. With George Segal, Joan Hackett, Richard Dysart, Donald Moffat. Hoping to cure his violent seizures, a man agrees to a series of experimental microcomputers inserted into his brain but inadvertently discovers that violence now triggers a pleasurable response to his brain. The concept here is a great one but the implementation is more “talk about the cool stuff” instead of letting the cool stuff happen on screen. I actually had to time one of the scenes, when they’re implanting a chip into the guy’s head because I thought it had looped somehow, but...
