Directed by Gene Stupnitsky. With Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon, Molly Gordon. Three 6th grade boys ditch school and embark on an epic journey while carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to make their way home in time for a long-awaited party. I honestly didn’t know much going in and I think that skipping all the trailers and just watching this based on a personal recommendation is the way to go. This is a hard R movie for language and sexual conversations, but it’s all completely within the scope of what freshly minted...

Directed by James Cameron. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Arnold, Bill Paxton. A fearless, globe-trotting, terrorist-battling secret agent has his life turned upside down when he discovers his wife might be having an affair with a used-car salesman while terrorists smuggle nuclear war heads into the United States. Every actor here was at the top of their game when they were in this movie, perhaps with the exception of Eliza Dushku who was only 13 during filming and went on to do some really great work. The plot still works for the most part and I took particular...
Created by Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall. With Sophia Lillis, Wyatt Oleff, Sofia Bryant, Kathleen Rose Perkins. Sydney is a teenage girl navigating the trials and tribulations of high school while dealing with the complexities of her family, her budding sexuality, and mysterious superpowers just beginning to awaken deep within her. These episodes are really short, and all for the better! There wasn’t a single moment where I thought I was watching filler content, something that Netflix has had the misfortune of being guilty of many times with their shows. Buy On Amazon!
Created by Laeta Kalogridis. With Chris Conner, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Will Yun Lee, Dichen Lachman. Set in a future where consciousness is digitized and stored, a prisoner returns to life in a new body and must solve a mind-bending murder to win his freedom. A much better season than season one. I enjoyed the first one, but season two has a tighter script and a much less convoluted plot. it also has space alien satellites, which I do appreciate. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Jon Lucas, Scott Moore. With Adam Devine, Alexandra Shipp, Rose Byrne, Ron Funches. A comedy about what can happen when you love your phone more than anything else in your life. My wife had to straight up stop watching the movie because of how stupid the plot is, but I found it to be endearing and worth my time. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by D’Urville Martin. With Rudy Ray Moore, D’Urville Martin, Jerry Jones, Lady Reed. After he is released from jail, a pimp takes on the criminals and corrupt police officers who framed him in the first place. After seeing Dolemite is my name, we had to watch the movie they were filming and it’s everything you could hope for. It’s much better to watch them in this order though, so you know stuff about stuff before it happens. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Craig Brewer. With Eddie Murphy, Keegan-Michael Key, Mike Epps, Craig Robinson. Eddie Murphy portrays real-life legend Rudy Ray Moore, a comedy and rap pioneer who proved naysayers wrong when his hilarious, obscene, kung-fu fighting alter ego, Dolemite, became a 1970s Blaxploitation phenomenon. Watched on a whim, it was a good return for Eddie Murphy and was absolutely hilarious. Buy On Amazon!
Mars has been colonized, and Earth’s corporate titans fight to dominate this new market. Competition is fierce in this fast-paced economic RTS from Civilization IV lead Designer, Soren Johnson. I played a few hours to learn that 1 – this is a very well done game 2 – I’m not very good at it It does have the distinction of being the first game that I’ve installed and played from the Epic Games Store. It was free a couple week ago, so this reviews comes to you at the low low cost of $0.00. Buy On Amazon!
Created by Charlie Day, Megan Ganz, Rob McElhenney. With Rob McElhenney, Ashly Burch, Jessie Ennis, Imani Hakim. The cutting-edge comedy is set in a video game development studio and will explore the intricacies of the human condition through hilarious and innovative ways. An absolutely dumpster fire of a show, it should have been rejected when the script for the second episode was presented to who ever approved it. There’s high production values and great actors that are all given roles in which everyone is an asshole, no one is consistent in their personalities and they throw around bigoted slurs as...
Directed by Leigh Whannell. With Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Harriet Dyer, Aldis Hodge. When Cecilia’s abusive ex takes his own life and leaves her his fortune, she suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of coincidences turn lethal, Cecilia works to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. Elisabeth Moss is fantastic here, but the atmosphere….wow. This is a great one to see in theaters if you’d like to do such a thing. Buy On Amazon!
