Swimming with Men

Directed by Oliver Parker. With Rob Brydon, Rupert Graves, Thomas Turgoose, Adeel Akhtar. A man who is suffering a mid-life crisis finds new meaning in his life as part of an all-male, middle-aged, amateur synchronised swimming team. A film of toxic masculinity and it’s effects, it’s a good movie and I suggest it, but it just slightly misses it’s mark at the end of the day in terms of just how toxic life can be and how we should react to it.

Hustlers

Directed by Lorene Scafaria. With Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Mette Towley. Inspired by the viral New York Magazine article, Hustlers follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients. Strippers turn to the dark side and start running some schemes that hurt everyone they come into contact with. A well acted film with a premise that’s completely pedestrian. An easy watch if you’re into such things. Buy On Amazon!

The VelociPastor

Directed by Brendan Steere. With Alyssa Kempinski, Greg Cohan, Claire Hsu, Aurelio Voltaire. After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. At first horrified by this new power, a hooker convinces him to use it to fight crime. And ninjas. This is a classic low budget fantasy science fiction film that knows what it’s working with and works it as best it can. Two choice quotes to get you interested: “Surprisingly little demand for lawyer hooker doctors.” “i fought some ninjas last night, maybe they...

Star Trek: Picard

Created by Kirsten Beyer, Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman. With Patrick Stewart, Santiago Cabrera, Alison Pill, Isa Briones. Plot kept under wraps. Described as a follow-up series to Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), and centers on Jean-Luc Picard (Sir Patrick Stewart) in the next chapter of his life. The first episode out and it’s almost everything I could hope for. The main theme is pretty forgettable, but Patrick Stewart really comes out swinging and doesn’t stop for the entire episode.

The Kitchen

Directed by Andrea Berloff. With Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, Elisabeth Moss, Domhnall Gleeson. The wives of New York gangsters in Hell’s Kitchen in the 1970s continue to operate their husbands’ rackets after they’re locked up in prison. The trailers made this to be more of a comedy than it ended up being, which was a legit street level period piece set in the 70’s. Enjoyable and I think even re-watchable.  I will say that I wasn’t 100% on board with the editing of the film, it could have used a bit more TLC. Buy On Amazon!

Satanic Panic

Directed by Chelsea Stardust. With Rebecca Romijn, Arden Myrin, Hayley Griffith, Ruby Modine. A pizza delivery girl at the end of her financial rope has to fight for her life – and her tips – when her last order of the night turns out to be high society Satanists in need of a virgin sacrifice. A movie that strives to be a shitty b-rated film, but fails upwards with too many good hooks and clever editing. Buy On Amazon!

Elizabeth Harvest

Directed by Sebastian Gutierrez. With Abbey Lee, Ciarán Hinds, Carla Gugino, Matthew Beard. A brilliant man marries a beautiful woman and shows her his home, stating that it’s all hers – except a room she can’t enter. First chance she enters and discovers what might be human cloning. When the husband returns she pays the price. Sorta like Ex Machina, sorta like Replicas, but without the big budget of either one of those. That’s not to say this is a bad film, it’s just much smaller in scope. I particularly want to suggest the film, if only for you to...

You ever watch a series, get half way through an episode, and get a distinct impression that you’re watching the final episode of the entire thing? That happened to me, and it was sad. I started watching this show on a lark, was happy with...
