The Predator

The Predator: Directed by Shane Black. With Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key. When a young boy accidentally triggers the universe’s most lethal hunters’ return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled scientist can prevent the end of the human race. Perhaps I gave this movie a bit too much gruff in my previous review, but not by much. There’s a lot to dislike about the film, it is over reliant on trope heavy characters and low brow humor, but there’s enough good stuff to still make it a watchable film. The casting is...

Predators

Predators: Directed by Nimród Antal. With Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Walton Goggins. A group of elite warriors parachute into an unfamiliar jungle and are hunted by members of a merciless alien race. I would argue, and I believe I’m correct in this, that “Predators” is the best film in the franchise yet, having taken the franchise to it’s next logical step. The next movie after this one is “The Predator” which I found to be a step backward from the heights that Predators reached. The first Predator film was amazing, yes. Arnold and his ‘rescue team’ really were...

South of Heaven

South of Heaven: Directed by Aharon Keshales. With Jason Sudeikis, Evangeline Lilly, Mike Colter, Shea Whigham. Convicted felon Jimmy gets early parole after serving twelve years for armed robbery. Upon his release, he vows to give Annie, his childhood love, now dying from cancer, the best last year of her life – unfortunately it’s not that simple. Jason Sudeikis and Evangline Lilly do a great job as a pair of every day people caught up in the stupid things that people get caught up in while they’re just trying to live their lives and do right by their loved ones....

Moscow on the Hudson

Moscow on the Hudson: Directed by Paul Mazursky. With Robin Williams, Maria Conchita Alonso, Cleavant Derricks, Alejandro Rey. A Russian saxophonist visiting New York with a circus troupe suddenly decides to defect from the USSR during a shopping trip to a department store, but he finds adjusting to American life more difficult than he imagined. There’s funny portions of this film, but this isn’t a comedy. It’s only funny in sad American ways, and really we should cry at the indignities of things instead of laughing at them. If you ever want to show someone a movie to prove to...

Predator 2

Predator 2: Directed by Stephen Hopkins. With Kevin Peter Hall, Danny Glover, Gary Busey, Rubén Blades. The Predator returns to Earth, this time to stake a claim on the war-torn streets of a dystopian Los Angeles. It’d be pretty easy to believe this is in the same universe as ROBOCOP, which is a crossover I think I’d love to see. P2 isn’t as strong as the first film, but it does have it’s great moments.

Irma Vep

Irma Vep: Created by Olivier Assayas. With Alicia Vikander, Vincent Macaigne, Nora Hamzawi, Antoine Reinartz. Mira is an American movie star disillusioned by her career and recent breakup, who comes to France to star as Irma Vep in a remake of the French silent film classic, “Les Vampires.” An exceptionally well done mini series with a large amount of confusion on the reality of the scenes. I adore Alicia Vikander and this series shows her at her best. Buy On Amazon!

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close: Directed by Stephen Daldry. With Tom Hanks, Thomas Horn, Sandra Bullock, Zoe Caldwell. A nine-year-old amateur inventor, Francophile, and pacifist searches New York City for the lock that matches a mysterious key left behind by his father, who died in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. This is as sad as I thought it would be. It’s a well done film with an important message, but boy howdy do I not enjoy feeling this sad. Buy On Amazon!

Predator

Predator: Directed by John McTiernan. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Carl Weathers, Elpidia Carrillo, Bill Duke. A team of commandos on a mission in a Central American jungle find themselves hunted by an extraterrestrial warrior. I’m doing a rewatch of the 3 main Predator movies before the next movie drops on the Hulu this Friday. Wait, there’s four of them? I even went to see that fourth one, how did I forget it?

Fresh

Fresh: Directed by Mimi Cave. With Daisy Edgar-Jones, Sebastian Stan, Jojo T. Gibbs, Andrea Bang. The horrors of modern dating seen through one young woman’s defiant battle to survive her new boyfriend’s unusual appetites. This is new ground for me, as I didn’t think it would be as straight up freaky as it ended up being Sabastian Stan, who I know mostly from his role in the MCU, plays a delightfully terrifying guy that’s just barely on the wrong side of sanity, and plays off Daisy Edgar-Jones perfectly. Buy On Amazon!

Nope

Nope: Directed by Jordan Peele. With Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott. The residents of a lonely gulch in inland California bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery. I thought this review was going to be a complaint about how modern trailers are straight up spoiling the movies, but that’s not what I’m here to say. I mean, yes, modern trailers absolutely give away some of the best parts of their films, but in this case, I hesitate to say that’s what happened here, as I think Peele used the normal expectations and tropes against what he...

1UP

1UP: Directed by Kyle Newman. With Paris Berelc, Taylor Zakhar Perez, Ruby Rose, Hari Nef. Follows a gamer who quits her college esports team due to sexism from her male counterparts. Equal parts low budget gamer movie and low budget girl power movie and low budget Revenge of the Nerds, there’s a pretty ok movie at the heart of “1UP”, though you’ll need to look past some pretty offensive performative tropes that are right up in your face. Buy On Amazon!

Empire of Dreams: The Story of the ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy

Empire of Dreams: The Story of the ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy: Directed by Edith Becker, Kevin Burns. With Robert Clotworthy, Walter Cronkite, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg. An in-depth making of documentary about the original Star Wars trilogy, covering the productions of the three films and their impact on popular culture. Released in 2004 with interviews from the 1990’s, but with some scenes updated to their 4k versions, this is a weird hybrid of time traveling opinions from many of the behind the scenes characters and most of the on screen actors. It’s good, but I distinctly remember some of these interviews...

Conan the Destroyer

Conan the Destroyer: Directed by Richard Fleischer. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Grace Jones, Wilt Chamberlain, Mako. Conan leads a ragtag group of adventurers on a quest for a princess. Arguably better than the first one, but that’d be a fun argument to have, as both films have exceptionally strong portions and co-stars. In this case Arnold is joined by Grace Jones and Wilt Chamberlain, both of whom did a fantastic job as Conan’s traveling buddies. Buy On Amazon!

The Red Shoes

The Red Shoes: Directed by Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger. With Anton Walbrook, Marius Goring, Moira Shearer, Robert Helpmann. A young ballet dancer is torn between the man she loves and her pursuit to become a prima ballerina. Supposedly one of “the most beautiful” films in the world, this is a fantastically restored film by Criterion that’s worthy of viewing simply on the merits of the main lead and her ability to show her descent into desperation while being torn in two by her competing desires for love of a man and love of dancing for one of the most talented...

Re-Animator

Re-Animator: Directed by Stuart Gordon. With Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott, Barbara Crampton, David Gale. After an odd new medical student arrives on campus, a dedicated local and his girlfriend become involved in bizarre experiments centering around the re-animation of dead tissue. It’s on sale on Apple for just $3, so if you’re a Lovecraft fan, a Zombie fan, a medical horror fan, or even a Jeffrey Combs fan, this is the movie for you! The special effects are terrible, the acting is terrible, the script is terrible, and it’s really amazing that I love it so much. Buy On Amazon!

Star Trek: Lower Decks

Star Trek: Lower Decks: Created by Mike McMahan. With Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells, Eugene Cordero. The support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, have to keep up with their duties, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies. I worched it again, because I have purchased it in a physical disk. Why do I continue to do this? Because who knows what’s going to be available tomorrow on the internet, that’s why! Buy On Amazon!

Autonomy

Autonomy: Directed by Alex Horwitz. With Eddie Alterman, Malcolm Gladwell, Ray Magliozzi, Andy Schaudt. Brief history of the development of self-driving cars along with an even-handed look at the pros and cons of giving up human control of something that has been a significant part of people’s lives for more than 100 years. The film suggests we are at a significant cultural and economic turning point. The horrifying future is now here, where cars are no longer driven by insane people that will run into you if you look at them wrong, but will now be drive by artificial intelligence...

The Gray Man

The Gray Man: Directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo. With Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Billy Bob Thornton. When the CIA’s most skilled operative-whose true identity is known to none-accidentally uncovers dark agency secrets, a psychopathic former colleague puts a bounty on his head, setting off a global manhunt by international assassins. It’s a Netflix film, dumping ground for some pretty junky films, so it’s always nice to watch a film on their streaming service that’s actually good, which “The Gray Man” is not just good, it was a down right enjoyable film on every level I can...

Stan & Ollie

Stan & Ollie: Directed by Jon S. Baird. With Steve Coogan, John C. Reilly, Shirley Henderson, Nina Arianda. Laurel and Hardy, the world’s most famous comedy duo, attempt to reignite their film careers as they embark on what becomes their swan song: a grueling theatre tour of post-war Britain. Much less polemic or fraud with conflict than I was expecting, “Stan & Ollie” is still a captivating story of how one of the greatest comedic duos fell apart due to bad expectations, money, bad heatlh, lack of money, marriage, and money problems. John C. Reilly disappeared completely into his character,...

Uncle Buck

Uncle Buck: Directed by John Hughes. With John Candy, Jean Louisa Kelly, Gaby Hoffmann, Macaulay Culkin. Bachelor and all-round slob Buck babysits his brother’s rebellious teenage daughter and her cute younger brother and sister. If I’d seen this in the past, it long enough ago that I never logged it and more importantly, I had no memory of it. Was scrolling through films tonight and my wife made a comment about how she hadn’t seen that in ages, so that was tonight’s movie. I had the impression that the titular “Uncle Buck” was more of a screw up than he...

Jakob’s Wife

Jakob’s Wife: Directed by Travis Stevens. With Barbara Crampton, Larry Fessenden, Bonnie Aarons, Nyisha Bell. Anne, married to a small-town Minister, feels her life has been shrinking over the past 30 years. Encountering “The Master” brings her a new sense of power and an appetite to live bolder. However, the change comes with a heavy body count. A fun and campy horror film with a somewhat unique twist of also being a relationship drama. It’s a medium level budget film with medium level special effects and acting, but there’s some real heart in the film that any fan of the...

Thir13en Ghosts

Thir13en Ghosts: Directed by Steve Beck. With Tony Shalhoub, Embeth Davidtz, Matthew Lillard, Shannon Elizabeth. When Cyrus Kriticos, a very rich collector of unique things, dies, he leaves his house, fortune, and his prized collection of ghosts. There’s 12 ghosts! No wait, 13! What a twist! This is an overly campy horror film from 2001 that I missed the first time around, but my wife sure didn’t, it was on her list of spooky films to watch, and to be honest it was a fun film that had some pretty neat ideas about how the afterlife works and some pretty...

Conan the Barbarian

Conan the Barbarian: Directed by John Milius. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Earl Jones, Max von Sydow, Sandahl Bergman. A young boy, Conan, becomes a slave after his parents are killed and tribe destroyed by a savage warlord and sorcerer, Thulsa Doom. When he grows up he becomes a fearless, invincible fighter. Set free, he plots revenge against Thulsa Doom. My wife and I have been playing “Conan: Exiles” for a couple weeks now, so I figured I’d give the movie a rewatch and boy howdy did the devs of that game really get the setting right. The movie’s version of...

Waterworld

Waterworld: Directed by Kevin Reynolds. With Kevin Costner, Chaim Jeraffi, Rick Aviles, R.D. Call. In a future where the polar ice-caps have melted and Earth is almost entirely submerged, a mutated mariner fights starvation and outlaw “smokers,” and reluctantly helps a woman and a young girl try to find dry land. I got it for free from Universal, so of course I watched it. It’s supposed to be in 4k/hdr, but there was nothing about what I watched that made me say “golly this sure is 4k and hdr”, so maybe don’t buy it on the basis of that aspect...

Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder: Directed by Taika Waititi. With Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson. Thor enlists the help of Valkyrie, Korg and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster to fight Gorr the God Butcher, who intends to make the gods extinct. The redemption of Thor in the MCU has been utterly mind blowing to me, and this movie continues the trend of Phase 4’s ability to have a movie without a bad guy that’s little more than a mustache twirling bad guy that’s bad for badness’s sake. It doesn’t hurt that Christian Bale steals nearly ever scene he’s in, has...

Mars Attacks!

Mars Attacks!: Directed by Tim Burton. With Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Pierce Brosnan. Earth is invaded by Martians with unbeatable weapons and a cruel sense of humor. Sometimes Tim Burton can be just too much, but just this once he was exactly spot on with how weird he could be. Buy On Amazon!

Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wanted: Directed by James Bobin. With Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Steve Whitmire. While on a grand world tour, The Muppets find themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit the Frog look-alike and his dastardly sidekick. I had forgotten how super catchy the music in “Most Wanted” is, and I’m not sure we’ll ever see Ricky Gervais in another Disney film, but it sure was nice to see him in his less traumatic days. …was this the last time we saw the Muppets? I guess there was that “Haunt Mansion” film last year,...

The Princess

The Princess: Directed by Le-Van Kiet. With Joey King, Olga Kurylenko, Antoni Davidov, Radoslav Parvanov. When a strong-willed princess refuses to wed the cruel sociopath, she is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With her vindictive suitor intent on taking her father’s throne, the princess must save the kingdom. High octane tower descent style action movie with minimal plot and a kick ass heroine? Ok, sign me up! The end result is a little overcranked in the action department for my tastes, but it wears it’s intentions on it’s sleeve and does exactly what it...

Charli XCX: Alone Together

Charli XCX: Alone Together: Directed by Bradley Bell, Pablo Jones-Soler. With Charli XCX, Huck Kwong, Twiggy Rowley, Sam Pringle. Global pop star Charli XCX enlists fans to help her produce the album how i’m feeling now while quarantined during the COVID-19 pandemic. A relatively intimate look into the creative process behind Charli XCX’s “How I’m Feeling Now” album. It was made during the initial lockdowns of the corona virus crisis. It’s good, Charli is good, her music is good, and I just wish it had a little more of her actual personality in it instead of the filtered version that...

Kedi

Kedi: Directed by Ceyda Torun. With Yaman Barlas, Sari, Arzu Göl, Kemal Suncu. A profile of an ancient city and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the Cat. It’s about the world famous cats in Istanbul. There’s some sad parts, there’s some happy parts, but this is a well done documentary about cats. yay cats. Buy On Amazon!

Eddie Izzard: Wunderbar

Eddie Izzard: Wunderbar: Directed by Sarah Townsend. With Eddie Izzard. Filmed during Eddie’s 2019 tour, Wunderbar exemplifies Eddie’s unique, surreal view of life, love, history and her ‘theory of the universe’. A wonderfully low budget but funny comedy set, I believe this is the first one that I’ve seen from Eddie since the decision to go full on transgender and not just executive transvestite. Buy On Amazon!

The Card Counter

The Card Counter: Directed by Paul Schrader. With Oscar Isaac, Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan, Willem Dafoe. Redemption is the long game in Paul Schrader’s THE CARD COUNTER. Told with Schrader’s trademark cinematic intensity, the revenge thriller tells the story of an ex-military interrogator turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past. I thought I was getting into a gambling movie with one of the best actors in the business, but ended up with a movie about three men dealing with their PTSD in novel and horrifying ways. Poker is in the background at all times, but the main story...

Starfish

Starfish: Directed by A.T. White. With Virginia Gardner, Christina Masterson, Eric Beecroft, Natalie Mitchell. A unique, intimate portrayal of a girl grieving for the loss of her best friend, which just so happens to take place on the day the world ends. Virginia Gardner is really the only reason this film works as well as it does and it does work to a certain extent. The premise is somewhat overshadowed by the betrayal at the end, and this film from 2018 has the distinct feel of a film made during the pandemic, with only a couple scenes featuring more than...

Scream 3

Scream 3: Directed by Wes Craven. With Liev Schreiber, Beth Toussaint, Roger Jackson, Kelly Rutherford. While Sidney and her friends visit the Hollywood set of Stab 3, the third film based on the Woodsboro murders, another Ghostface killer rises to terrorize them. Notable because it has both the dynamic duo of Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes as guests, as well as Carrier Fisher playing a woman that looks just like Carrie Fisher but is definitely maybe not Carrie Fisher. The rest of the film is serviceable as a note on getting past your personal traumas, though not all of us...

Scream 2

Scream 2: Directed by Wes Craven. With Jada Pinkett Smith, Omar Epps, Paulette Patterson, Rasila Schroeder. Two years after the first series of murders, as Sidney acclimates to college life, someone donning the Ghostface costume begins a new string of killings. I had forgotten how many big names where in this, Jada Pinkett Smith, Heather Graham, Liev Schreiber, Chris Odonnel, Neve Campbell, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Timothy Olyphant, Omar Epps, tons of people that were just getting started and went on to make great content afterwards. All for a pretty good horror film. Buy On Amazon!

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent: Directed by Tom Gormican. With Nicolas Cage, Pedro Pascal, Tiffany Haddish, Sharon Horgan. In this action-packed comedy, Nicolas Cage plays Nick Cage, channeling his iconic characters as he’s caught between a superfan (Pedro Pascal) and a CIA agent (Tiffany Haddish). Nicolas Cage as Nick Cage is about as meta as you can get without tongue kissing yourself while drinking with yourself at the bar that you brought yourself to. The de-aged scenes in this film just blew my mind, and if you’re as big of a fan as I am, you’ll find certain scenes...

Gidget Goes to Rome

Gidget Goes to Rome: Directed by Paul Wendkos. With James Darren, Cindy Carol, Jessie Royce Landis, Cesare Danova. Gidget, in Rome for a holiday, misinterprets attention she receives from a famous journalist. Discovering he is “chaperoning” her at Dad’s request she resumes interest in her boyfriend. Based upon characters created by Frederick Kohner. A perfectly fine Gidget movie, that was perfectly entertaining, but I believe this is the end of the road on my Gidget journey. I also checked out the first episode of the television series with Sally Field and it was perfectly fine too. Buy On Amazon!

The World According to Garp

The World According to Garp: Directed by George Roy Hill. With Robin Williams, Mary Beth Hurt, Glenn Close, John Lithgow. A struggling young writer finds his life and work dominated by his unfaithful wife and his radical feminist mother, whose best-selling manifesto turns her into a cultural icon. Robin’s second movie, and it’s not funny. It doesn’t seek out humor, don’t need jokes, and it’s a great look at a few different types of feminism, but man, how did Robin Williams go from “Popeye” to “Garp” then “The Survivors”? Seeing that it’s based on a book make sense, as this...

Senior Year

Senior Year: Directed by Alex Hardcastle. With Rebel Wilson, Angourie Rice, Mary Holland, Molly Brown. A cheerleading stunt gone wrong landed her in a 20-year coma. Now she’s 37, newly awake and ready to live out her high school dream: becoming prom queen. This is the first role that I’ve seen Rebel Wilson in since she lost all that weight (80 pounds!) and you’ll be happy to know that her brand of humor still hits exactly the way it did before, so if you liked her before, you’ll still like her. It’s just a bit weird that now she’s playing...

Bachelor in Paradise

Bachelor in Paradise: Directed by Jack Arnold. With Bob Hope, Lana Turner, Janis Paige, Jim Hutton. A bachelor author of sleazy books moves to a family-oriented subdivision where he becomes an unofficial relationship advisor to unhappy local housewives, to the dismay of their respective husbands who suspect him of sexual misconduct. To be honest, I’m not much of a Bob Hope fan, but this movie convinced me that I should be more open to his work. “Bachelor in Paradise” is a another great recommendation from that “California Tiki” book that I finished last month, I think it’s the last on...

The Survivors

The Survivors: Directed by Michael Ritchie. With Walter Matthau, Robin Williams, Jerry Reed, James Wainwright. Having both lost their jobs, two strangers become unlikely friends after a run in with a would be robber, who is actually a hitman with a grudge against the two. It’s the “Odd Couple” but with lots and lots of paramilitary action and gun. So many guns. But you have to ask, if you have all those guns, did you bring the right bullets for them? It’s a relatively funny movie, but not the best work from either Matthau or Robin Williams, but if you...

Next

Next: Directed by Lee Tamahori. With Nicolas Cage, Julianne Moore, Jessica Biel, Thomas Kretschmann. A Las Vegas magician who can see into the future is pursued by FBI agents seeking to use his abilities to prevent a nuclear terrorist attack. Someone mentioned that they considered ‘Next’ as an unofficial super power sequel to Jumper, and I remember feeling mixed feelings about how they resolved the storyline, but figured I’d give it a try again. I’m still not exactly happy with the ending, but I think it’s about as good of one that you could get with the concept. The gimmicky...

Jumper

Jumper: Directed by Doug Liman. With Hayden Christensen, Jamie Bell, Rachel Bilson, Diane Lane. A teenager with teleportation abilities suddenly finds himself in the middle of an ancient war between those like him and their sworn annihilators. Hayden Christensen is back in the news because of his return as Darth Vader in the recently wrapped up “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Disney+ show, so I figured I’d give Jumper another watch. It’s among my favorite movies with Hayden and is based on a book series that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed, even if the last one came out back in 2014. The premise is pretty...

The Dunwich Horror

The Dunwich Horror: Directed by Daniel Haller. With Sandra Dee, Dean Stockwell, Ed Begley, Lloyd Bochner. Wilbur Whateley travels to the Arkham Miskatonic University to borrow the legendary Necronomicon. But, little does anyone know, Whateley isn’t quite human… I sought this out and found it on Kanopy because of the Gidget (1969) movie starring Sandra Dee, which was about a sweet and innocent teenager that was just growing into womanhood and discovering what she wanted in life. From there I found myself exploring Sandra Dee’s career on IMDB and saw that one of her final movie was an adaptation of...

Bicentennial Man

Bicentennial Man: Directed by Chris Columbus. With Robin Williams, Embeth Davidtz, Sam Neill, Oliver Platt. An android endeavors to become human as he gradually acquires emotions. This is one of my more favorite adaptations from Isaac Asimov’s vast library of stories, no huge sweeping action scenes, no massive explosions, just the ever moving forward progress of a mind finding it’s way to sentience, then trying to find it’s way through a word that might not be as accepting of his soul as he’d like it to be. For the most part all the characters in the film are acting in...

The Kid Detective

The Kid Detective: Directed by Evan Morgan. With Kaitlyn Chalmers-Rizzato, Adam Brody, Kaleb Horn, Wendy Crewson. A once-celebrated kid detective, now 32, continues to solve the same trivial mysteries between hangovers and bouts of self-pity. Until a naive client brings him his first ‘adult’ case, to find out who brutally murdered her boyfriend. A happy go lucky kid detective grows up to be a drunken washed up nobody that can’t seem to get serious crimes to solve. At least that’s until a horrifying murder is given to him as a case by the murdered party’s girlfriend. It’s a fairly by...

Spiderhead

Spiderhead: Directed by Joseph Kosinski. With Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller, Jurnee Smollett, Mark Paguio. In the near future, convicts are offered the chance to volunteer as medical subjects to shorten their sentence. One such subject for a new drug capable of generating feelings of love begins questioning the reality of his emotions. Presented by “THE NEW YORKER” which is a stuffy political magazine that I have never once read, nor have any interest in, since I’m not in New York and have no need to know about gossip from that location. They also do short stories in their paper though,...

Hercules

Hercules: Directed by Luigi Cozzi. With Lou Ferrigno, Brad Harris, Sybil Danning, Rossana Podestà. The story of the Greek mythological figure, updated in this 80’s version. Lou Ferrigno’s first role after he was done with The Incredible Hulk, the tv show that made him famous as the titular Hulk, this movie is notable for a couple other reasons, the first and foremost is that it’s a terrible no good movie that should have never been made. The second is that Lou Ferrigno is absolutely beautiful and as perfect as a muscle man can be in a movie this bad. The...

Interceptor

Interceptor: Directed by Matthew Reilly. With Elsa Pataky, Luke Bracey, Aaron Glenane, Mayen Mehta. One Army captain must use her years of tactical training and military expertise when a simultaneous coordinated attack threatens the remote missile interceptor station she is in command of. This feels decidedly like a movie that Jean-Claude Van Damme would have done when he was in his prime and to be frank, Elsa Pataky a great subsitutuion for him in this campy yet scrappy military action film with a solo hero trying to save the world, one kick punch at a time. Sure she’s obviously not...

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road: Directed by George Miller. With Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne. In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, a woman rebels against a tyrannical ruler in search for her homeland with the aid of a group of female prisoners, a psychotic worshiper, and a drifter named Max. I’ve seen it before, I’ll see it again, this is one of the definitive movies of 2015 and is absolutely amazing in 4k hdr. Buy On Amazon!
