Moonbase 8

Moonbase 8: Created by Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker, Jonathan Krisel, John C. Reilly. With John C. Reilly, Tim Heidecker, Fred Armisen, Joshua Davis. Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly star in this new comedy series as three astronauts trying to qualify for their first lunar mission. They encounter obstacles along the way including loneliness, self-doubt and incompetence. Cringe worthy in all the wrong ways, I stayed with the first season because it was weird. Turns out the entire thing is just delightfully and wholesomely weird through and through. It’s more of a “Fred Armisen” weird than a “John...

*batteries not included: Directed by Matthew Robbins. With Hume Cronyn, Jessica Tandy, Frank McRae, Elizabeth Peña. Aliens help a feisty old New York couple in their battle against the ruthless land developer who’s out to evict them. A corny love story of two alien robots, who are summoned by the psionic cries for help from a building being threatened by an over eager corporate thug who’s employed a gang of actual thugs to harass the property owners to sell their beloved homes. It’s corny, campy, and everything amazing you could hope for in a retro future alien robot movie. Buy...

Two unlikely companions embark on a perilous adventure through the badlands of an unexplored planet as they try to escape a dangerous and disorienting reality where all thoughts are seen and heard by everyone. I threatened to buy this for my home collection, and this last week that’s what I did. I was super excited to get my wife to watch it, but she was only half interested in seeing it, so there was a lot of the “move explains a thing” then 20 minutes...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife: Directed by Jason Reitman. With Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace. When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. I was ready for the nostalgia going on, but it still hit me like a ton of bricks when they delivered on everything I was hoping for. I am by no means a fanatic about the franchise, but the first two movies were great, the 2016 one was definitely a movie, and this one...

The House

The House: Directed by Andrew Jay Cohen. With Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Jason Mantzoukas, Ryan Simpkins. After the town takes away their daughter’s college scholarship, a couple start an illegal casino in their friend’s house to make back the money. Released back in 2017 around the same time as “Daddy’s Home 2”, this has been on my watch list for a while. Every time I had an opportunity to watch it though, I kinda waffled about it. I do love Amy Poehler and I do love Will Ferrell, but they can be, at times, a bit much, and that seemed...

Don’t Look Up

Don’t Look Up: Directed by Adam McKay. With Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett. Two low-level astronomers must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth. Imagine if a comet was discovered in 2017, and it was sure to hit the planet. It’s big enough to end all life as we know it, but with a little luck and a little ingenuity, we might possibly, just maybe, save all of humanity. Do you think we could have done it in 2017 with the leadership that the US was...

Encanto

Encanto: Directed by Jared Bush, Byron Howard, Charise Castro Smith. With Stephanie Beatriz, María Cecilia Botero, John Leguizamo, Mauro Castillo. A young Colombian girl has to face the frustration of being the only member of her family without magical powers. This movie was not for me, which is just fine, apparently other people are super enjoying it! For me it was a confusing mess and an odd misstep from modern Disney, the story was muddled, the songs confusing, and the voice work not all that impressive. I listened to the first song in the movie and realized I would have...
