Tread

Directed by Paul Solet. With Marvin Heemeyer, Patrick Brower, Glenn Trainor Jr., Casey Farrell. Pushed to his breaking point, a master welder in a small town at the foot of the Rocky Mountains quietly fortifies a bulldozer with 30 tons of concrete and steel and seeks to destroy those he believes have wronged him. The story of a man that got pushed too far, took things too personally, and couldn’t just move past the implied and explicit offenses he suffered at the hands of the local good ol’ boys network that was in place in a small town when he...

Unicorn Store

Directed by Brie Larson. With Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Joan Cusack, Bradley Whitford. Kit, a twenty-something dreamer, receives an invitation that would fulfill her childhood dreams. It’s been on my watch list for years and I finally got around to it this last weekend as I was nursing a hangover and was completely bored by life and angry that I had so many responsibilities. I feel like this movie is a good response to anyone feeling that way, as the Brie Larson character is someone with stars in her eyes, with a slight sarcastic glint that makes her just...

Sweet Tooth

Sweet Tooth: Created by Jim Mickle, Beth Schwartz. With Nonso Anozie, Christian Convery, Stefania LaVie Owen, James Brolin.

Awake

Directed by Mark Raso. With Gina Rodriguez, Ariana Greenblatt, Lucius Hoyos, Shamier Anderson. After a devastating global event wiped out all electronics and eliminated people’s ability to sleep, a former soldier may have found a solution with her daughter. if you enjoyed “bird box” because it was an apocalyptic story as it happened, you’ll enjoy “awake” which is a story about an apocalypse as it happens. There’s some goofy stuff going on here, but luckily it’s kept to the bare minimum and the end result is a fantastically quick story about what happens when you can’t sleep. ever. Buy On...

Occupation: Rainfall

Occupation: Rainfall: Directed by Luke Sparke. With Dan Ewing, Temuera Morrison, Daniel Gillies, Lawrence Makoare. Two years after aliens land on Earth, survivors from Sydney, Australia, fight in a desperate war as the number of casualties continue to grow. Is this a sequel? Maybe? I don’t think it really matters, as they cover pretty much everything that happened previously in a voice over. This is a great straight to video film with surprisingly high quality special effects, a mediocre story, terrible acting, and awe inspiring ambitions. At the end of the day it misses a few things it shoots for,...

Wrath of Man

Directed by Guy Ritchie. With Jason Statham, Holt McCallany, Josh Hartnett, Rocci Williams. The plot follows H, a cold and mysterious character working at a cash truck company responsible for moving hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles each week. Another Jason Statham, starting Jason Statham playing Jason Statham in a role that Jason Statham was born to play. All jokes aside, it was a very well done ultra violent film with an engaging narrative structure that gave some fresh air to a really old and abused story trope. Buy On Amazon!

The Saints of Salvation

SAINTS OF SALVATION SIGNED EDITION The best of the three novels in this trilogy. The first books was just barely able to hold my attention, the second did a better job, and I fully expected that there would be just a single time POV in this third book, but was saddened to see that wasn’t the case in the first few chapters, but that time difference actually ends up being a cool piece of the puzzle that doesn’t come together until the third act. All the good story telling and action pieces happen right around that same time period too,...

Avengers World

Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have returned from the stars– but on the world they left behind, new threats have emerged, and The Avengers will be tested like never before. In one cataclysmic day, the face of the Marvel Universe will change forever– and the fight for Earth’s future will begin. A globe-spanning epic of empires and armies, and the brave few who stand between them and us. Yet another great Marvel book that gets interrupted by a World Event, then completely goes off rails and never really gets back to what it started as. I can highly suggest the first four...

Bo Burnham: Inside

Directed by Bo Burnham. With Bo Burnham. A new comedy special shot and performed by Bo Burnham, alone, over the course of the past year. Bo Burnham (born 1990) is who I (born 1980) want to be when I grow up. At least, his public side, he makes it clear that there’s a tormented soul behind it all with a plethora of issues that were either pre-existing or arose from his meteoric rise in the public spotlight. The special is pretty good, it’s a one man show in all aspects, apparently made over a year during lockdown (he must not...
