A new mission: The late twenty-third century—Starfleet’s golden age of exploration. Desperate to stay one step ahead of its rivals, the Federation sends two starships, the scout Sagittarius and the cruiser Endeavour, to plumb the secrets of the vast region known as the Taurus Reach.A doomed race A great start of a sorta sequel to Star Trek: Vanguard series, this one features a couple of the ships that were around for most of the Vanguard shenanigans. I’ve heard tale that the series was based off concept art that spoke to one of the authors, and it shows that this is...

Fathers’ Day

Fathers’ Day: Directed by Ivan Reitman. With Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Nastassja Kinski. A woman cons two old boyfriends into searching for her runaway son by convincing both that they are the boy’s father. A funny film that didn’t land the way I was hoping it would, both Robin and Billy are near the top of their game, but there wasn’t much of a plot to really work with and what was there was mostly nonsensical fun.

Director by Night

Director by Night: Directed by Anthony Giacchino. With Mike Bryson, Anthony Giacchino, Josephine Giacchino, Michael Giacchino. “DIRECTOR BY NIGHT” follows film composer Michael Giacchino’s first foray into directing. I thought this was going to be another one of the interesting but low effort ‘behind the scenes’ that they do for every new Star Wars or Marvel series, but it ended up being a heartfelt look at the director’s life and how he came to be in the movie business. If you haven’t checked out “Werewolf by Night” yet, it’s pretty good, and this director documentary is about as long and...

Starship Troopers 4k Steelbook

Starship Troopers: Directed by Paul Verhoeven. With Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer, Denise Richards, Jake Busey. Humans in a fascist, militaristic future wage war with giant alien bugs. This is for the 4k transfer that was recently released in a classy looking Steelbook case, which I found on the Amazon. The case is worth the premium for physical collectors, the inside and outside have eye catching artwork and the discs have some cool visuals too. It’s a rarity to see these for sale anywhere other than Best Buy these days, so I was super happy to see it on Jeffery’s...

Tales of the Jedi

Tales of the Jedi: Created by Dave Filoni. With Corey Burton, Ashley Eckstein, Dee Bradley Baker, Ian McDiarmid. It showcases animated shorts that feature Jedi from the prequel era. Entirely way too short, this is a collection of six tangentially related short stories that are all under 20 minutes in length, with quality ranging from “ok” to “oh my”. Obviously I’m head over heels about seeing Ahsoka on screen again, if you like the character as much as I do, you should check these out. Buy On Amazon!

Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday

Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday: Directed by George Kirby, Harry Kirby. With Scott Adkins, Ray Stevenson, Perry Benson, Sarah Chang. The Accident Man, is back and this time he must beat the top assassins in the world, to protect the ungrateful son of a mafia boss, save the life of his only friend and rekindle his relationship with his maniacal father figure. Not as bad as I was thinking it was going to be, in fact I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this, a film about an assassin that makes all his hits look like accidents. This is the...

Hocus Pocus 2

Hocus Pocus 2: Directed by Anne Fletcher. With Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy, Whitney Peak. Two young women accidentally bring back the Sanderson Sisters to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking havoc on the world. I think I stayed awake for most of this, but honestly go watch the first one again, it’s on Disney+ and it’s in 4k/hdr and you’ll get to see all the same jokes, just done better. Buy On Amazon!

Star Trek: Picard: Rogue Elements

Starfleet was everything for Cristóbal Rios — until one horrible, inexplicable day when it all went wrong. Aimless and adrift, he grasps at a chance for a future as an independent freighter captain in an area betrayed by the Federation, the border region with the former Romulan Empire.His greate I really wanted to like this book, but while it has some amazing spaceship inclusions, it also includes in no certain order: The Iotians, which IMHO are truly the bottom of the barrel of TOS species, they’re the ones that emulate 1930’s American gangsters because a printed book was left behind...

Terrifier 2

Terrifier 2: Directed by Damien Leone. With Lauren LaVera, David Howard Thornton, Jenna Kanell, Catherine Corcoran. After being resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to the timid town of Miles County where he targets a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night. I haven’t a clue why I watched this with, but boy howdy was it a good time. There’s some real stupidity going on with the limits of what this new horror icon can get up to, but Lauren LaVera more than makes up for anything that I could complain about. The camp is...

X

X: Directed by Ti West. With Mia Goth, Jenna Ortega, Brittany Snow, Kid Cudi. In 1979, a group of young filmmakers set out to make an adult film in rural Texas, but when their reclusive, elderly hosts catch them in the act, the cast find themselves fighting for their lives. A horror film done right, but no big surprise, it’s A24 after all! There’s a ton of foreshadowing, but not all of it is very obvious that there’s a set up happening, but other times it’s as obvious as a gator coming right at you! Buy On Amazon!
