Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Directed by Burr Steers. With Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote. Five sisters in 19th century England must cope with the pressures to marry while protecting themselves from a growing population of zombies. I have yet to watch this movie while sober, I think this is the third time that i’ve seen it, and yet again I was drinking…again… Anyways, I was surprised to see Lena Headly, and I was surprised at the sudden ending, but I enjoyed the entire film so much, yet again. I would thoroughly enjoy seeing more of these types of films, with classic...

Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus

Directed by Hae Young Jung, Young Kyun Park, Jhonen Vasquez. With Richard Steven Horvitz, Rikki Simons, Andy Berman, Melissa Fahn. ZIM discovers his almighty leaders never had any intention of coming to Earth and he loses confidence in himself for the first time in his life, which is the big break his human nemesis, Dib has been waiting for. A while ago I went back to re-watch some Invader Zim and I just could not do it. For whatever reason, I just couldn’t get back into the show, either it hadn’t aged well, or I had aged too much. Luckly,...

Mulan

Directed by Niki Caro. With Yifei Liu, Donnie Yen, Li Gong, Jet Li. A young Chinese maiden disguises herself as a male warrior in order to save her father. Distinctly in the “this didn’t need to be made” category, as well as the “this is obviously made for an audience that isn’t me” category as well. The camera angles, storylines, and special effects feel more like a Chinese made movie than any other Disney movie I’ve seen, and actually reminds a whole bunch of a Netflix series named “Ice Fantasy“, for better or worse. There’s a ton of justified outrage...

Darkest Hour

Directed by Joe Wright. With Gary Oldman, Lily James, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendelsohn. In May 1940, the fate of World War II hangs on Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Adolf Hitler, or fight on knowing that it could mean the end of the British Empire. Entertainingly boarish and miopic in nature, this film purposefully doesn’t look outside the scope of just a few weeks of Winston Churchill’s decision about the nature of the second world war, much to it’s credit. Lilly James is delightful as always and Gary Oldman is exactly as perfect as you...

Bill & Ted Face the Music

Directed by Dean Parisot. With Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, Kristen Schaal, Samara Weaving. Once told they’d save the universe during a time-traveling adventure, 2 would-be rockers from San Dimas, California find themselves as middle-aged dads still trying to crank out a hit song and fulfill their destiny. I think there’s something to be said for waiting so long between the second and third movies in the franchise. Giving the character room to breath and find (or in this case, not find) their callings and move on with their lives. I feel like at times I’m bill or ted, just floundering...

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey

Directed by Peter Hewitt. With Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, William Sadler, Joss Ackland. A tyrant from the future creates evil android doubles of Bill and Ted and sends them back to eliminate the originals. An even better film than the first, this was part of a three pack that I purchased from Vudu. What made this even better was death, hell, and heaven. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Directed by Stephen Herek. With Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, George Carlin, Terry Camilleri. Two seemingly dumb teens set off on a quest to prepare the ultimate historical presentation with the help of a time machine. Vudu has a three pack for just $35, all in 4k, so I figured why not? The first movie is as positive and optimistic as I remembered, though I had forgotten the misuse of sexual slurs, strange that calling people f*gs used to be perfectly fine in a pg time travel movie.

Krakatoa: East of Java

Directed by Bernard L. Kowalski. With Maximilian Schell, Diane Baker, Brian Keith, Barbara Werle. In 1883, ship captain Hanson plans a shipwreck salvage mission in The Dutch East Indies to retrieve a cargo of pearls but an unexpected volcano eruption and a state-ordered transport of convicts upset his plans. With a full, gorgeous orchestra providing the soundtrack, entirely too obvious miniatures, and an incredibly weird beard on the captain, this was a fun ride that had a fun adventure story marred by casual racism. Not by any of the characters that I can remember, but by the musical choices for...

Humans Season 3

With Katherine Parkinson, Gemma Chan, Lucy Carless, Tom Goodman-Hill. In a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant that’s so similar to a real human it’s transforming the way we live. More hot robot on robot action, while I’m interested in what happens next in the story, I feel like I’m at a good ending spot. Just in time for the American version of the show to start!

Krypton Season 2

Created by David S. Goyer, Damian Kindler. With Cameron Cuffe, Georgina Campbell, Shaun Sipos, Ann Ogbomo. The untold story of Superman’s grandfather as he fights for justice on his home planet. I enjoyed the first season and was saddened to hear that it was canceled, especially with how good the first season was and how amazing the first couple episodes were that featured Lobo. The special effect and casual drops of epics theme songs every now and again kept my attention, as well as the great storyline references from the comics. I found it difficult to do what I normally...
