Bloodshot

Directed by Dave Wilson. With Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell. Ray Garrison, a slain soldier, is re-animated with superpowers. I watched it again because I bought it back when the pandemic had just started and I wanted to get back to that feeling of newness to the situation. it didn’t help, but it’s still not a bad film.

Bone

9 book series published by Scholastic in 2004-2009. A simple story of a family that was chased out of their home town due to the incompetent greed of their older brother. They end up in “the valley” where they manage to trigger the literal apocalypse. It’s a story that starts slow and cute, but ends with dragons waking up to eat the world and the lord of locus trying to do evil stuff at the same time. I had originally purchased and read this story back when it was being released in black and white floppies, then after it was...

Prescription: Murder

Directed by Richard Irving. With Peter Falk, Gene Barry, Katherine Justice, William Windom. A psychiatrist uses a patient he is having an affair with to help him kill his wife, but his perfect alibi may come apart at the hands of a seemingly befuddled LAPD lieutenant. A 2 hours long pilot movie that felt at first more like a James Bond film than a murder mystery, part of that I suppose is the setting itself, which is the late ’60’s. Peter Falk is super young here compared to when I know him from the later episodes of the show (never...

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Sketchbook: The Movies, Generations & First Contact

Pass the torch. Bring together the best of what has come before and the grandeur of the present to create an undreamed-of future, a radically different look. Create a new ship. Give life to mankind… I was expecting just another art book, but this turned out to be a massive tomb of behind the scenes stories, concept art, and storyboarding. The best part of this book is that it’s a large format book and the photos inside of the ship miniatures are in extreme high resolution. One of the main draw back though was that instead of using just a...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III

Directed by Stuart Gillard. With Elias Koteas, Paige Turco, Stuart Wilson, Sab Shimono. The turtles find themselves transported back in time to ancient Japan. Not sure how this made it to theaters, but I guess it was while the TMNT mania was still in full swing, so money really speaks. I remember seeing the Samurai warrior turtles in TRU and desperately wanting them when I was too old for that type of thing, but ….I still want them maybe? Buy On Amazon!

Ocean’s Eleven

Directed by Steven Soderbergh. With George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon. Danny Ocean and his ten accomplices plan to rob three Las Vegas casinos simultaneously. Rewatched immediately after seeing the original version of the story for the first time, and while I’ve enjoyed the movie in the past I still did, but felt like the original version still had a bit more “something” to it. Mind you, this version has it’s own personality that the original doesn’t have either. Buy On Amazon!

Ocean’s 11

Directed by Lewis Milestone. With Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford. Danny Ocean gathers a group of his World War II compatriots to pull off the ultimate Las Vegas heist. Together the eleven friends plan to rob five Las Vegas casinos in one night. I hadn’t seen this, the original version of the story, but I assumed that the 2001 version was just a remake, and while the broad strokes are still there, there’s a lot to mention here. Spoilers for a 60 year old version: The entire crew are military vets from World War 2 and...

Unhinged

Directed by Derrick Borte. With Russell Crowe, Caren Pistorius, Gabriel Bateman, Jimmi Simpson. After a confrontation with an unstable man at an intersection, a woman becomes the target of his rage. A movie about a lady that’s pretty terrible at being a decent human being, who then meets another somewhat more horrible person. They then compete to be the world’s worst person making bad decisions through the film, most of which would have been easily avoidable if they did what we’ve all be trained to do to be safe in the world. Take for instance the gas station scene: She...

Star Trek: Nemesis

Directed by Stuart Baird. With Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Brent Spiner, LeVar Burton. The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth. A nice early 90’s movie that was somehow filmed and released in 2002, so the title sequence looks super aged, the plot is super tv monster of the week, and the sacrifices have less impact that I think they should have. It’s still a fun Trek adventures, but it just...

The Boys Season 2

Created by Eric Kripke. With Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty. A group of vigilantes sets out to take down corrupt superheroes who abuse their superpowers. About as good as the first season, with a much tighter story wrap up. Buy On Amazon!
