Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Directed by Cathy Yan. With Margot Robbie, Rosie Perez, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell. After splitting with the Joker, Harley Quinn joins superheroes Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya to save a young girl from an evil crime lord. A mediocre movie that never found it’s footing, nor did it find a story that actually seemed interesting other than “Harley is a complete fuck up”. It’s a shame because I love Harley as a character, and I love Margot Robbie as an actress and I love all the other actresses and actors in the film, but there’s just not much...

The wind-borne spores are spreading, disfiguring men and twisting their minds, turning them into creatures that threaten to destroy the townships.

Contagion

Directed by Steven Soderbergh. With Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow. Healthcare professionals, government officials and everyday people find themselves in the midst of a worldwide epidemic as the CDC works to find a cure. I feel like I’ve seen this before, which is likely considering the cast, but I didn’t remember much about it , it was released before I was logging movies, and with the novel corona virus tearing through the world…. This is a good movie. It’s scary as shit, but it’s good. I could actually see this moving being a prequel to games like...

American Gods

Created by Bryan Fuller, Michael Green. With Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning, Crispin Glover, Yetide Badaki. A recently released ex-convict named Shadow meets a mysterious man who calls himself “Wednesday” and who knows more than he first seems to about Shadow’s life and past. Season Two ended a while ago, but I’m just now getting around to it on my DVR. It’s a pretty slow series, but very enjoyable, I’m hoping that season three comes out sometime soon! Buy On Amazon!

Terminator: Dark Fate

Directed by Tim Miller. With Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes. An augmented human and Sarah Connor must stop an advanced liquid Terminator, from hunting down a young girl, whose fate is critical to the human race. I bought the 4k Steelbook because I’m in love with how the cover features both versions of the latest Terminator model and honestly I think I enjoyed the film better the second go round.

Mandy

Directed by Panos Cosmatos. With Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Ned Dennehy. The enchanted lives of a couple in a secluded forest are brutally shattered by a nightmarish hippie cult and their demon-biker henchmen, propelling a man into a spiraling, surreal rampage of vengeance. I watched this immediately after ‘Colors Out of Space’ because I was expecting ‘Mandy’ to be more of a revenge thriller, but it was not. It was more mind bending insanity with Nicolas Cage slowly going insane after his lover is taken from him by a cult. Enjoyable, but weird as fuck. Buy On Amazon!

Color Out of Space

Directed by Richard Stanley. With Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, Madeleine Arthur, Elliot Knight. A secluded farm is struck by a strange meteorite which has apocalyptic consequences for the family living there and possibly the world. Adapted from a Lovecraft story, so you know that there’s going to be some real mind breaking storypoints and that by the end of the story pretty much everyone involved is going to be dead, dying, or in an insane asylum. That all holds to be true here, with some really impressive visuals to boot. I was also impressed with the sound design and score...

2050

Directed by Princeton Holt. With Dean Cain, Stormi Maya, Stefanie Bloom, Devin Fuller. A family man struggling to hold it all together discovers a hidden parlor that offers a solution…sexbots. A movie about sex robots that ultimately has nothing to do with sex robots, but more to do with how to be truthful to yourself and how to be truthful to those around you. There’s some awkward points in the film with some scenes that just felt like the b-team was doing the editing, but I appreciated it for what they were trying to say. Buy On Amazon!
