The Addams Family

Directed by Barry Sonnenfeld. With Anjelica Huston, Raul Julia, Christopher Lloyd, Dan Hedaya. Con artists plan to fleece an eccentric family using an accomplice who claims to be their long-lost uncle. Did I watch this when it was originally released? Regardless, it’s enjoyable and shows a perfectly healthy relationship between to unbelievably weird people that would kill or die for each other. Buy On Amazon!

Wild Wild Country

With Ma Anand Sheela, Osho, Philip Toelkes, Jane Stork. When Osho, the world’s most controversial guru, builds an Utopian city deep in the Oregon country, conflict with the locals escalates into a national scandal. The first 5 episodes of this six episode mini series set up how absolutely insane the local people went when too many ‘cultists’ came to their town, with the federal government getting in on the action at the very end, in what appears to me to be an obscene and actionable overreach that should have resulted in the arrest and conviction of several federal employees who...

Justice Society: World War II

Directed by Jeff Wamester. With Stana Katic, Matt Bomer, Omid Abtahi, Geoffrey Arend. The Justice Society of America , a group of heroes aiding the allies in World War 2, acquire an ally from the future who sends them on an adventure that changes history. Better than I was expecting, but I have no clue where this is supposed to fit in the timeline of the new WB comic movies, apparently there’s no Justice League at the start of it? Buy On Amazon!

The Last Blockbuster

Directed by Taylor Morden. With Lauren Lapkus, Sandi Harding, Ken Tisher, Jared Rasic. A documentary on the last remaining Blockbuster Video, located in Bend, Oregon. A nostalgia trip worth your time if you’re over 30 and remember them. If you’re not over 30, you won’t get that hit of nostalgia, but maybe it’ll be worth your time to see what all the fuss was about. Buy On Amazon!

Gattaca

Directed by Andrew Niccol. With Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law, Gore Vidal. A genetically inferior man assumes the identity of a superior one in order to pursue his lifelong dream of space travel. I remember seeing this film in the movie theaters in 1997 and being utterly disappointed in it because there was literally no spaceships in the film, despite all the trailers saying he was trying to get on a spaceship. 25 years later, I can see that the film wasn’t about spaceships nor the actual desire to get to space, but is more about the lengths that...

The Mitchells vs the Machines

Directed by Michael Rianda, Jeff Rowe. With Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Michael Rianda. A quirky, dysfunctional family’s road trip is upended when they find themselves in the middle of the robot apocalypse and suddenly become humanity’s unlikeliest last hope. I’m assuming this is the same development team that did Spider-Man: Into The Spider-verse, Lorde and Miller have executive credits and that feeling that you’re watching something special is ever present. The film was originally named “Connected” and was going to be released in theaters, but we know this last year has been an absolute shit-show in terms of...

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Director’s Cut

Directed by Nicholas Meyer. With William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan. With the assistance of the Enterprise crew, Admiral Kirk must stop an old nemesis, Khan Noonien Singh, from using the life-generating Genesis Device as the ultimate weapon. The first of the original movies to be released in 4k, it’s a fantastic film still, but sadly the 4k isn’t very impactful. Buy On Amazon!

Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse

Directed by Stefano Sollima. With Michael B. Jordan, Jodie Turner-Smith, Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce. John Clark, a Navy SEAL, goes on a path to avenge his wife’s murder only to find himself inside of a larger conspiracy. It’s a movie, not a series, no way we’d have a series with a black lead, not when we can have a series with white lead like Jack Ryan. That small bit of minor racism that you shouldn’t even worry about though, this is a fantastic movie that you should watch asap. There’s a ton of believable action with believable characters doing believable...

Collateral

Directed by Michael Mann. With Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Jada Pinkett Smith, Mark Ruffalo. A cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. Bought it in a 3/$15 deal that vudu was doing, I remembered liking it in the past and it turns out that it’s still a great movie. Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx definitely have a future in movies, I hope those kids do well! Buy On Amazon!

Stowaway

Directed by Joe Penna. With Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim, Shamier Anderson, Toni Collette. A three-person crew on a mission to Mars faces an impossible choice when an unplanned passenger jeopardizes the lives of everyone on board. Initial boarding of the station makes no sense at all, but honestly it’s not actually here to be a movie about science, it’s here to be a movie about moral dilemmas, which it does just as well as could be expected.
