Monster Hunter

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. With Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Ron Perlman, T.I.. When Lt. Artemis and her loyal soldiers are transported to a new world, they engage in a desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers. Feature film based on the video game by Capcom. This is certainly a movie that was released, and it was definitely based on a video game franchise. I’m not intimately familiar with the gaming franchise, but what I do know is that you play a character that hunts monsters. This movie has monsters, and there’s plenty of shootin’ and hackin’,...

Cinderella (TV Movie 1997) – IMDb

Directed by Robert Iscove. With Brandy Norwood, Bernadette Peters, Veanne Cox, Natalie Desselle Reid. Although mistreated by her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, Cinderella is able to attend the royal ball through the help of a fairy godmother. My wife made some direct comparisons of ‘Bridgerton’ and this show with how little they cared about how race in the originally all white roles. Turns out that it doesn’t really matter at all if they’re black, white, or asian, and it was a fun story from beginning to end. It was nice to see Whoopie in the midst of the high of...

Coming to America

Directed by John Landis. With Eddie Murphy, Paul Bates, Garcelle Beauvais, Feather. An extremely pampered African Prince travels to Queens, New York, and goes undercover to find a wife that he can respect for her intelligence and will. With a sequel well on it’s way to Amazon Prime, they’re pushing the UHD original film pretty hard on their streaming service, to prime the royal pump. The movie still holds up very well, if not for the indentured sex slaves and gratuitous nudity of (admittedly beautiful) women that didn’t have the option to not sleep with their king. In it’s defense,...

“The New York Times Presents” Framing Britney Spears

Directed by Samantha Stark. With Britney Spears, Liz Day, Felicia Culotta, Hayley Hill. Her rise was a global phenomenon. Her downfall was a cruel national sport. People close to Britney Spears and lawyers tied to her conservatorship now reassess her career as she battles her father in court over who should control her life. A story designed to do nothing other than make you feel bad about laughing at a millionaire’s mental breakdown and physical assault on a photographer’s car. I’m sure that one day we’ll find out more on the specifics of what’s going on behind closed doors in...

Jabberwocky

Directed by Terry Gilliam. With Michael Palin, Harry H. Corbett, John Le Mesurier, Warren Mitchell. A young peasant, with no interest in adventure or fortune, is mistaken as the kingdom’s only hope when a horrible monster threatens the countryside. If you were to say “golly this looks an off brand Monty Python and the Holy Grail” you’d only be half wrong, as Michael Palin was actually in BOTH of the films. Jabberwocky could actually serve as a less funny, but more gritty sequel to “Holy Grail” and while I wish I could suggest it, I honestly can’t. The version I...

Real Steel

Directed by Shawn Levy. With Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo, Anthony Mackie. In the near future, robot boxing is a top sport. A struggling ex-boxer feels he’s found a champion in a discarded robot. I can’t even remember what service I streamed this on, maybe Netflix? Regardless, it’s a fun story of a washed up boxer that’s moved into the world of rock ’em / sock ’em robot boxing, but not doing a very good job at it, losing his hat in nearly every match he enters. Turns out that he’s not just bad at robot boxing, but he’s...

Mage Against the Machine

Harry Potter meets The Terminator. I trimmed off the rest of the description, there were spoilers in it that would make you regret reading the description of the book! The synopsis of “harry potter meets the terminator” is the best description I could possibly suggest. There’s legitimately 3 or 4 chapters of world building that made me wonder which world being described was going to to be the real one, with some obvious hints which it was going to be. When that resolution actually game through though…I was shocked about how deeply I felt it worked and how crazy it...

Freaky

Directed by Christopher Landon. With Vince Vaughn, Kathryn Newton, Celeste O’Connor, Misha Osherovich. After swapping bodies with a deranged serial killer, a young girl in high school discovers she has less than 24 hours before the change becomes permanent. Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton do a delightfully horrifying body swap slasher that starts with bloody murderous action, keeps the gore going, then ends exactly how you’d think it would. I enjoyed the ride though, so that’s definitely no knock against the film. Buy On Amazon!

Into the Night

Created by Jason George. With Pauline Etienne, Laurent Capelluto, Mehmet Kurtulus, Babetida Sadjo. Stay out of the light! The trailer gave me strong Langoliers vibes, though we quickly find out the source of horror that everyone’s running from and it’s thankfully nothing to do with time travel. I’ve been avoiding the show because it looked like it was going to be a subtitled mess that like most subtitled movies would required 100% of your attention at all times, but they made the curious choice to redub everyone in the series, even the characters that originally spoke English. It’s high drama,...
