Terror Birds

When Maddy Stern discovers her father has gone missing during a routine birdwatching excursion, she and her college pals trek out into the wilderness to find him, only to end up in a wealthy scientist’s desolate ranch aviary, where they encounter a pair of giant, hungry terror birds believed to be extinct for centuries. I was looking for something fun to watch while cleaning my living room and this was on broadcast tv, with what looked like a SD formatted picture stretched to widescreen, then compressed...

The game is set during the events of the Clone Wars that started at the climax of the movie Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. In the game, the player is expected to take command of a Clone commando team, made up of elite Clone troopers. These "clone commandos" have been specially bred at the clone factories on Kamino. The commando team will travel to various locations in the Star Wars universe, including Kashyyyk, Geonosis, and the derelict spacecraft, The Prosecutor. It took me a bit longer than normal to clear this game, I kept failing to remember...

Synchronic

Directed by Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead. With Anthony Mackie, Jamie Dornan, Katie Aselton, Ally Ioannides. Two New Orleans paramedics’ lives are ripped apart after they encounter a series of horrific deaths linked to a designer drug with bizarre, otherworldly effects. Time travel movies generally don’t have much to add to the trope, either events can be effected by time travel or they can’t, but Syncheonic leands a couple new wrinkles to the standard “man goes through time” story. Much to it’s credit, something that could in theory feel like well trod on story elements are given a patina that is...

Bridgerton

Created by Chris Van Dusen. With Phoebe Dynevor, RegĂ©-Jean Page, Nicola Coughlan, Jonathan Bailey. Wealth, lust, and betrayal set against the backdrop of Regency-era England, seen through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family. There’s a fair bit of race that I can’t get out of my mind, there’s not much likelihood that people of a darker color would have access to Society like this series portrays, but I’m happy that modern audiences can get the experience of the alternative history that’s presented here, because our lives would be fuller if this was the history that actually happened. Getting past...

Alita: Battle Angel

Directed by Robert Rodriguez. With Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali. A deactivated cyborg’s revived, but can’t remember anything of her past and goes on a quest to find out who she is. I had some data entry to do, so I put on Alita, but unfortunately for me the movie captured my attention more than the data I needed to enter did. Buy On Amazon!

Mr. Mayor

Created by Robert Carlock, Tina Fey. With Ted Danson, Holly Hunter, Vella Lovell, Mike Cabellon. A wealthy businessman becomes the mayor of Los Angeles. If I were to tell you that Tina Fey wrote this show, you would immediately recognize the number and witty banter. I’m sure she didn’t pen every word that every character is saying, but her delightful sense of humor is all over this series, for better or worse. I’m of the opinion that it’s for the better, I’m a huge fan of her work on 30 Rock or Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Ted Danson has turned...

Batman: Soul of the Dragon

Directed by Sam Liu. With David Giuntoli, Mark Dacascos, Kelly Hu, Michael Jai White. In the 1970s, a missing teacher of martial arts is the subject of a quest by his devoted and brilliant but distant students, who include Batman. Is Batman even in this? I think I saw him at one point, but it was only ever just for brief snippets. You may think I’m complaining, but the movie is better for the brevity of the Bat’s visual presence and does great things with the supporting cast and story that made me happy to only see the bat logo...

Monsters of Man

Directed by Mark Toia. With Neal McDonough, Brett Tutor, Jose Rosete, David Haverty. A US weapons manufacturer tests its 4 killer robots on heroin producers in the Golden Triangle in SEAsia. It goes haywire. This was Mark Toia’s first film and by golly I look forward to seeing more from him, this was a well done first outing. Whoever they had doing the robots also deserves a nod as well, I’m pretty sure they’re motion captured, but the end result is believably scary when things start to go wrong. Buy On Amazon!

Ted Lasso

Created by Brendan Hunt, Joe Kelly, Bill Lawrence. With Jason Sudeikis, Hannah Waddingham, Brendan Hunt, Jeremy Swift. Follows US American Football coach Ted Lasso heading to the UK to manage a struggling London football team in the top flight of English football. Feeling beat down by the world and the state that it’s in? Ted Lasso might just be the answer to the doldrums of the last 4 years and will leave you in absolute tears. This is a sports show for people that don’t know about sports, so if you don’t know the difference between an onsides kick and...
