Top Gun

Top Gun: Directed by Tony Scott. With Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards. As students at the United States Navy’s elite fighter weapons school compete to be best in the class, one daring young pilot learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom. I watched this again because it was included on Paramount Plus and I was about to go see it’s sequel in a few hours. It still holds up as one of Tom Cruises finest roles. It’s pure American propaganda, but I’m ok with that. Buy On Amazon!

Mainstream

Mainstream: Directed by Gia Coppola. With Maya Hawke, Andrew Garfield, Kalena Yiaueki, Nat Wolff. In this cautionary tale, three people struggle to preserve their identities as they form an eccentric love triangle within the fast-moving internet age. Not everyone can be famous, and most of the people that become famous had little personal input on what happened to their fame after they became famous. Some people don’t want to be famous at all, yet are famous because the world doesn’t care about your feelings, the world just wants to be entertained, maybe even a little shocked at what you’re doing....

Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi

Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi: Directed by Richard Marquand. With Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Billy Dee Williams. After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the Rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy the second Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Darth Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor’s trap. I had some horrible news tonight, so here’s the second movie that I watched to try to make it more better. It sorta helped. Buy On Amazon!

The Villain

The Villain: Directed by Hal Needham. With Kirk Douglas, Ann-Margret, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Paul Lynde. Facing hanging, a bank robber makes a deal with the corrupt banker to avoid execution in exchange for a dirty assignment. It’s a stupid story with increasingly ridiculous and contrived plot points, but if you knew that it was a parody / love letter to the WB cartoons from the 1930 like I did, I bet you’d enjoy it much more than if you didn’t. The obvious name here to look for is Arnold’s, it’s only his 7th role and he’s obviously still getting his acting...

Aziz Ansari: Nightclub Comedian

Aziz Ansari: Nightclub Comedian: Directed by Aziz Ansari. With Aziz Ansari, Phil Hanley. Comedian Aziz Ansari’s fourth comedy special. Turns out that Aziz is still funny, even in a last minute performance at the Comedy Cellar. Buy On Amazon!

Eternals

Eternals: Directed by Chloé Zhao. With Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek. The saga of the Eternals, a race of immortal beings who lived on Earth and shaped its history and civilizations. I’m standing by my previous review of the film, it’s a mediocre MCU film, but an ok movie by itself. It would have served itself better by trimming about 45 minutes from the total run time, but alas, we got what we got. Buy On Amazon!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan The Director’s Cut 4k

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan: 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. Previously owned this digitally, but now own it on disk! It was part of a set of the first 4 movies that I got for christmas, and it’s still a movie that I feel comfortable going back to time and time again. The soundtrack, the plot, the acting, it hits everything I need...

Hulk

Hulk: Directed by Ang Lee. With Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Sam Elliott, Josh Lucas. Bruce Banner, a genetics researcher with a tragic past, suffers an accident that causes him to transform into a raging green monster when he gets angry. I forgot it opened with biological testing instead of radiation, but I do remember there being some weird stuff in the comics later in the 90s talking about how his father did all sorts of testing and it was only because of the genetic augmentations that permitted Bruce Banner to survive the gamma bomb. I need to point out that...

Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four: Directed by Tim Story. With Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, Michael Chiklis. A group of astronauts gain superpowers after a cosmic radiation exposure and must use them to oppose the plans of their enemy, Doctor Victor Von Doom. Chris Evan’s first marvel movie, but definitely not his last. This is a good film for when it was released, I’ll endlessly defend it and it’s sequels! Buy On Amazon!

Ice Age

Ice Age: Directed by Chris Wedge, Carlos Saldanha. With Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Goran Visnjic. The story revolves around sub-zero heroes: a woolly mammoth, a saber-toothed tiger, a sloth and a prehistoric combination of a squirrel and rat, known as Scrat. I know I watched this in 2021, I know I got it back when MoviesAnywhere was first launching, and I know that I fell asleep while watching because it was so …slow? or maybe I just wasn’t personally invested, I dunno.
