Jojo Rabbit

Directed by Taika Waititi. With Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Scarlett Johansson, Taika Waititi. A young boy in Hitler’s army finds out his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their home. The trailers and commentary about this movie before it was released seemed worried about the comedy and softening of Hitler, but what the movie turned out to be was so much more than I was expecting. Sure, Hitler is here, as played by Taika Waititi, but he’s what a 10 year old boy would imagine him to be. WW2 is happening in the background, but I’d argue that...

Rambo: Last Blood

Directed by Adrian Grunberg. With Sylvester Stallone, Paz Vega, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Adriana Barraza. Rambo must confront his past and unearth his ruthless combat skills to exact revenge in a final mission. Is this it? The Final Rambo Movie? Maybe, but at this point Stallone could be using a walker and still give a good performance as a conflicted vet who just wants to live his life and be respected by the people around him. “Last Blood” is more torture porn like the previous film, but it wears that badge proudly.

Doom: Annihilation

Directed by Tony Giglio. With Amy Manson, Dominic Mafham, Luke Allen-Gale, James Weber Brown. Follows a group of UAC Marines as they respond to a distress call from a top secret scientific base on Phobos, a Martian moon, only to discover it’s been overrun by demons who threaten to create Hell on Earth. A surprisingly good looking Doom movie that doesn’t quite rise to the level of a theatrical release, but should still be checked out if you’re a fan of the franchise. Buy On Amazon!

Us

Directed by Jordan Peele. With Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker. A family’s serene beach vacation turns to chaos when their doppelg√§ngers appear and begin to terrorize them. A creepy movie that I kept in my backlog for far too long, I enjoyed watching it, but was somewhat disappointed by it’s final resolution. Buy On Amazon!

Tom Clancy’s The Division 2

Played from a third-person perspective, the game takes place in Washington D.C., in which a civil war between survivors and villainous bands of marauders breaks out. In the game, players can cooperate with each other to complete objectives. The game will also feature raids, which can be completed by up to 8 players. I’m at the end game now, which is where my interest in these types of games falls right off, as I’m not really interested in doing the same events over and over again and PVP has no interest to me at all. I really enjoyed my run...

I Love You, Daddy

Directed by Louis C.K.. With Louis C.K., Chlo√ę Grace Moretz, Rose Byrne, Charlie Day. When a successful television writer’s daughter becomes the interest of an aging filmmaker with an appalling past, he becomes worried about how to handle the situation. I don’t think this film was ever actually released, it was due to be out when Louis C.K. admitted to asking women to watch him masturbate in front of them. There’s a lot to unpack in the film and I think it was smart of him to not release it, but I’m happy to have seen it myself. The main...

The Wave

Directed by Roar Uthaug. With Kristoffer Joner, Ane Dahl Torp, Jonas Hoff Oftebro, Edith Haagenrud-Sande. Although anticipated, no one is really ready when the mountain pass above the scenic, narrow Norwegian fjord Geiranger collapses and creates an 85-meter high violent tsunami. A geologist is one of those caught in the middle of it. Subtitles are the worst, but this movie is well worth the effort it takes to watch the text AND watch the movie at the same time. I was genuinely captured by the story and the intense anxiety that everyone was feeling wondering if something was actually happening...

Alien 4k Director’s Cut

Directed by Ridley Scott. With Sigourney Weaver, Tom Skerritt, John Hurt, Veronica Cartwright. After a space merchant vessel receives an unknown transmission as a distress call, one of the crew is attacked by a mysterious life form and they soon realize that its life cycle has merely begun. I’m honestly not sure if I’ve ever watched the director’s cut before, but I think I prefer the theatrical version due to how much they showed the xenomorph and the couple scenes that were later emulated in Aliens. That being said, this is a gorgeous movie in 4k and I suggest it...

All Quiet on the Western Front

Directed by Delbert Mann. With Richard Thomas, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasence, Ian Holm. A young soldier faces profound disillusionment in the soul-destroying horror of World War I. Made for TV movie, but with high production values and extremely shocking subject matter. This is likely the best World War 1 movie that I’ve watched. Buy On Amazon!

Black and Blue

Directed by Deon Taylor. With Naomie Harris, Tyrese Gibson, Frank Grillo, Mike Colter. A rookie New Orleans police officer is forced to balance her identity as a black woman after she witnesses two corrupt cops committing murder. A fast paced and well shot chase film with many familiar faces at the top of their game. Naomie Harris wasn’t on my radar and I was surprised to see she’s been in many films that I enjoyed her parts (MoneyPenny in the recent Bond films!), her face just didn’t seem to stick to me, but after this i’m going to keep an...
