Directed by Phillip Noyce. With Denzel Washington, Angelina Jolie, Queen Latifah, Michael Rooker. A quadriplegic ex-homicide detective and his partner try to track down a serial killer who is terrorizing New York City. Low budget yet interesting movie with a decidedly 90’s feel to it.

Directed by Leigh Whannell. With Logan Marshall-Green, Melanie Vallejo, Steve Danielsen, Abby Craden. Set in the near-future, technology controls nearly all aspects of life. But when the world of Grey, a self-labeled technophobe, is turned upside down, his only hope for revenge is an experimental computer chip implant. I’ve been hoping and dreaming that this would come to 4k, but it doesn’t look like that’s in the cards. I found a copy of it for $4, and it holds up to my memory of it being a fantastic film with a premise that I’ve seen many times before, but never...

Transported to Barsoom, a Civil War vet discovers a barren planet seemingly inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Woola and a princess in desperate need of a savior. Finally on Disney+, but still not in 4k nor HDR 🙁 Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Tony Cervone. With Will Forte, Mark Wahlberg, Jason Isaacs, Gina Rodriguez. Scooby and the gang face their most challenging mystery ever: a plot to unleash the ghost dog Cerberus upon the world. As they race to stop this dogpocalypse, the gang discovers that Scooby has an epic destiny greater than anyone imagined. In the running with Sonic for being the best appropriately nostalgic take on an aging franchise that’s well past it’s prime. If Hannah Barbara is able to deliver on what they hint at through out this film, we’re in store for some fantastic content. Buy On...
Fantasia: Music Evolved is a 2014 motion-controlled music rhythm game developed by Harmonix for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One with Kinect. It is the interactive successor to Walt Disney’s 1940 animated film Fantasia and its 1999 sequel Fantasia 2000, both upon which it is based. I played about an hour of this last night and boy were my arms sore afterwards. This is likely the best 360 Kinect game I’ve played, but that’s not really saying much, most of the games for that thing were shovelware junk that serve as a waste of plastic. Buy On Amazon!
Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising is a military simulation video game for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 developed by British game developer Codemasters. Codemasters has advertised the game as a tactical shooter designed to represent modern infantry combat realistically. It is a stand-alone sequel to Bohemia Interactive’s Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis, but was developed entirely by Codemasters due to a falling-out between the two companies.[3 I’ve had this sitting on an xbox 360 for several years, the short story is that I always assumed this was about a military action against actual dragons. It’s not. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Chris Roberts. With Freddie Prinze Jr., Matthew Lillard, Saffron Burrows, Tchéky Karyo. Blair, a fighter pilot, joins an interstellar war to fight the evil Kilrathi who are trying to destroy the universe. My internet was out and I had to watch something I had locally, so this was it. Now I have the theme song stuck in my head, but it’s a good soundtrack so I’m can’t complain too much. Buy On Amazon!

With Thom Green, Anna Popplewell, Enisha Brewster, Ayelet Zurer. UNSC Cadet Thomas Lasky must conquer his inner fears and join forces with super-soldier John-117 to take down a massive faction of the Covenant. Still one of the better Halo stories that we’ve gotten in live action. Buy On Amazon!
Directed by Adam McKay. With Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Mary Steenburgen, Richard Jenkins. Two aimless middle-aged losers still living at home are forced against their will to become roommates when their parents marry. From a day and age that permitted such tomfoolery, I watched the UNRATED version, which I believe includes about 15 seconds more nut sack than the theatrical version. I still tear up during the song at the end. “boats ‘n’ hoes” indeed. Buy On Amazon!
