Zootopia

Directed by Byron Howard, Rich Moore, Jared Bush. With Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, Jenny Slate. In a city of anthropomorphic animals, a rookie bunny cop and a cynical con artist fox must work together to uncover a conspiracy. I’m not entirely sure why I went back to watch Zootopia, it’s a perfectly cromulent movie, and I did enjoy myself when I watched it again, but other than telling you it was about a dumb bunny and a sly fox, there’s not much that I actually remember as being remarkable. That sloth joke is still funny though. Buy On...

Aladdin

Directed by Guy Ritchie. With Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari. A kind-hearted street urchin and a power-hungry Grand Vizier vie for a magic lamp that has the power to make their deepest wishes come true. Back when I originally watched this in the before time, back when theaters were open and the world was slightly less horrifying to go out into, I somewhat enjoyed the changes and additions they made to the animated version, but rewatching it at home I’ve found I enjoyed it even more and in 4k/hdr it really pops, two scenes specifically, when Jasmin...

Battle Beyond the Stars

Directed by Jimmy T. Murakami, Roger Corman. With George Peppard, Robert Vaughn, Richard Thomas, John Saxon. A young farmer sets out to recruit mercenaries to defend his peaceful planet, which is under threat of invasion by the evil tyrant Sador and his armada of aggressors. This is clearly an attempt at attracting the Star Wars fans, it was released in 1980 just long enough after both Star Wars (1977) and Star Trek (1979) that the story elements, special effects, and most jarring to me, the music, was either heavily influenced or even lifted whole scale from other properties.

Green Lantern: Legacy

Twelve-year-old Tai Pham lives in the apartment above his grandmother’s store, where his bedroom is crammed with sketchpads and comic books. But not even his most imaginative drawings could compare to the colorful adventure he’s about to embark on. A well written story that has a beginning, middle, and ending! Such a rare element in today’s comic books! Love the art too, hope to see more like this from the creative team. Buy On Amazon!

The Old Guard

Directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood. With Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari. A covert team of immortal mercenaries are suddenly exposed and must now fight to keep their identity a secret just as an unexpected new member is discovered. I enjoyed this much more than I was expecting from Netflix, though Charlize Theron has been killing it lately, so I shouldn’t have been too surprised. Buy On Amazon!

Palm Springs

Directed by Max Barbakow. With Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, J.K. Simmons, Peter Gallagher. When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated as they are unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other. This is Ground Hog day, just with modern science and the added ‘fun’ story element of “what if you could pull someone else into the time loop?”. It’s enjoyable for what it is and I suggest it!

Wytches

Creator owned horror series from writer Scott Snyder and artist Jock. The series launched to critical and commercial success, with the first issue landing in the top ten selling comics of October 2014. Shortly after the series launch, it was announced that the film rights had been optioned by New Regency and Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company. Fantastic horror story of a family that moves away from the big city to get away from their problems, only to find that some problems are inescapable. Buy On Amazon!

Marvel: Avengers Alliance

Digital series that ties in with the Disney Interactive game. Absolutely pointless, I read it and thought that I was missing some issues, but looking into the series, it’s just a tie in to a mobile game. That wasn’t clear at all on the Kindle app, which I’m thinking more and more is pure garbage. Buy On Amazon!

21 Bridges

Directed by Brian Kirk. With Chadwick Boseman, Sienna Miller, J.K. Simmons, Stephan James. An embattled NYPD detective is thrust into a citywide manhunt for a pair of cop killers after uncovering a massive and unexpected conspiracy. A much stronger movie than I was expecting, though Chadwick Boseman looked like a skeleton for most of this movie. Buy On Amazon!
