Seventeen of them had not developed interstellar travel. Those were destroyed by the species that did reach the stars. That space-faring eighteenth annihilated the human colony on the Semi-Autonomous World Troy. A Marine Force Recon platoon sent to investigate is wiped out almost to the last man. In reaction, the North American Union assembles the largest army seen since the major wars of the 20th Century. Things seem grim for Troy...

Kajillionaire

Directed by Miranda July. With Evan Rachel Wood, Debra Winger, Gina Rodriguez, Richard Jenkins. A woman’s life is turned upside down when her criminal parents invite an outsider to join them on a major heist they’re planning. This was not the laugh riot I assumed it would be (thanks trailers!) but it was an exceptionally heartfelt look at parental abuse and finding love where we can. Buy On Amazon!

Star Trek

Directed by J.J. Abrams. With Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Leonard Nimoy. The brash James T. Kirk tries to live up to his father’s legacy with Mr. Spock keeping him in check as a vengeful Romulan from the future creates black holes to destroy the Federation one planet at a time. watched it again to finish out my star trek marathon that got sidetracked by a Star Wars game, every time I see this film I feel more and more that this was the right direction for the franchise to go in, but that it would be nice to...

The New Mutants

Directed by Josh Boone. With Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga. Five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. The much maligned, much delayed, and the unfortunate finale to the Fox / Marvel comic book series of mutant movies has finally been released. I agree with many that this is not a knock out of the park as the final swan song for the x-men franchise, but it was never intended to be such a thing. If you’re big into the...

I watched it again because I bought it back when the pandemic had just started and I wanted to get back to that feeling of newness to the situation. it didn’t help, but it’s still not a bad film.

Bone

9 book series published by Scholastic in 2004-2009. A simple story of a family that was chased out of their home town due to the incompetent greed of their older brother. They end up in “the valley” where they manage to trigger the literal apocalypse. It’s a story that starts slow and cute, but ends with dragons waking up to eat the world and the lord of locus trying to do evil stuff at the same time. I had originally purchased and read this story back when it was being released in black and white floppies, then after it was...

Prescription: Murder

Directed by Richard Irving. With Peter Falk, Gene Barry, Katherine Justice, William Windom. A psychiatrist uses a patient he is having an affair with to help him kill his wife, but his perfect alibi may come apart at the hands of a seemingly befuddled LAPD lieutenant. A 2 hours long pilot movie that felt at first more like a James Bond film than a murder mystery, part of that I suppose is the setting itself, which is the late ’60’s. Peter Falk is super young here compared to when I know him from the later episodes of the show (never...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III

Directed by Stuart Gillard. With Elias Koteas, Paige Turco, Stuart Wilson, Sab Shimono. The turtles find themselves transported back in time to ancient Japan. Not sure how this made it to theaters, but I guess it was while the TMNT mania was still in full swing, so money really speaks. I remember seeing the Samurai warrior turtles in TRU and desperately wanting them when I was too old for that type of thing, but ….I still want them maybe? Buy On Amazon!

Ocean’s Eleven

Directed by Steven Soderbergh. With George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon. Danny Ocean and his ten accomplices plan to rob three Las Vegas casinos simultaneously. Rewatched immediately after seeing the original version of the story for the first time, and while I’ve enjoyed the movie in the past I still did, but felt like the original version still had a bit more “something” to it. Mind you, this version has it’s own personality that the original doesn’t have either. Buy On Amazon!
