Prisoners of the Ghostland

Prisoners of the Ghostland: Directed by Sion Sono. With Nicolas Cage, Sofia Boutella, Nick Cassavetes, Bill Moseley. A notorious criminal must break an evil curse in order to rescue an abducted girl who has mysteriously disappeared. I love Sofia Boutella, and Nick Cage has been on an absolutely amazing series of weird as heck movies that all have unique or weird things to say or show, so you can imagine how amped I was for “Prisoners of the Ghostland”. Did it hold up to my lofty expectations? Turns out yeah. He’s making interesting movies now days, with some weird stuff...

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark (1988)

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark: Directed by James Signorelli. With Phil Rubenstein, Larry Flash Jenkins, Cassandra Peterson, Damita Jo Freeman. Upon arriving in a small town where she has inherited a rundown mansion, a famous horror hostess battles an evil uncle, and townspeople who want her burned at the stake. I never did watch much of her stuff back when she was really big, in my own defense though this movie came out when I was 8 years old and with the puritanical family I was raised in, it’s no wonder she never really came across my radar. She recently...

Star Trek: Picard: The Dark Veil

A thrilling untold adventure based on the acclaimed Star Trek: Picard TV series! A perfectly fine Star Trek novel, if you’re interested in the background universe of the Federation immediately before the events of the first Star Trek PIcard novel, this book is a tale of what Riker and his crew on board the Titan were up to right before the Romulan sun went nova (a huge unwarranted change from the established continuity of the shows, but what do I know). I do have a couple minor complaints, as the book opens in the middle of court case, which is...

Gravity (2013)

Gravity: Directed by Alfonso Cuarón. With Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris, Orto Ignatiussen. Two astronauts work together to survive after an accident leaves them stranded in space. I originally saw this movie with a group of coworkers that all had won some kind contest, I can’t even remember the details of the situation of the time, but I do remember that I was absolutely blown away by the film, but that I was nearly the only one that had a positive opinion of it. Sure, they get a good bit of the science wrong, specifically how gravity works in...

Django Unchained

Django Unchained: Directed by Quentin Tarantino. With Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington. With the help of a German bounty-hunter, a freed slave sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal plantation-owner in Mississippi. I believe this was one of the last films I got through Fandago’s coupon program, where you got $5 Gift Certificates for every X movies you bought tickets for. I don’t think I would otherwise want to own the film, I’m not saying it’s bad, but it’s pretty damn intense and I’d have to be in a very specific mood to watch it....

The Crazies (2010)

The Crazies: Directed by Breck Eisner. With Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell, Joe Anderson, Danielle Panabaker. After a strange and insecure plane crash, an unusual toxic virus enters a quaint farming town. A young couple are quarantined, but they fight for survival along with help from a couple of people. It’s a reboot / remake, I have memories of it being a sequel, but apparently that’s a fake memory because it’s not a sequel at all! It has a great opening song of “we’ll meet again” by the man in black and features a young Danielle Panabaker, who I always forget...

The Crazies (1973)

The Crazies: Directed by George A. Romero. With Lane Carroll, Will MacMillan, Harold Wayne Jones, Lloyd Hollar. The military attempts to contain a manmade combat virus that causes death and permanent insanity in those infected, as it overtakes a small Pennsylvania town. One of Romero’s few movies that doesn’t have much to do with zombies, though I guess you might consider the ‘crazies’ to be slightly zombie like, but I personally do not. They’re crazes, not zombies. It’s a movie that could easily be made today with only practical effects that aren’t very good, but the story itself of a...

Eaglemoss Graphic Novel Collection #5: TNG: The Space Between

We know what happens in the episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation. But what is the crew up to when we are not watching? IDW’s first Star Trek comic issues allow a glimpse into the space between… A well written story that (apparently?) never had a proper resolution, at least that’s the impression I got from the forward of the book, though that forward was definitely written well before 2017 when this collection was originally printed, so perhaps they’ve had time to get back to resolving the story of Federation Admirals going off the rails and using Picards’s logs for evil...

The Protege (2021)

The Protege: Directed by Martin Campbell. With Maggie Q, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, David Rintoul. Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody, Anna is the world’s most skilled contract killer. However, when Moody is brutally killed, she vows revenge for the man who taught her everything she knows. A terrible poster for a movie that had terrible marketing, but ended up being an enjoyable experience, and I dare say one of Maggie Q’s best roles. The plot it self is familiar, she’s a hitman with special skill done wrong, but it’s the emotional acting and emotional baggage...
