Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn

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!

Step Brothers

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!

Jodorowsky’s Dune

Directed by Frank Pavich. With Alejandro Jodorowsky, Michel Seydoux, H.R. Giger, Chris Foss. The story of cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ambitious but ultimately doomed film adaptation of the seminal science fiction novel. I was pretty well hung over when I watched this and not particularly wanting to watch something with subtitles, but this was interesting enough to hang in with it. I don’t think I was familiar with Jodorowsky before this documentary, but he had a particular cult of personality going for him that was going to result in some absolutely bonkers visuals for his version of Dune, but...

Dune

Directed by David Lynch. With Kyle MacLachlan, Virginia Madsen, Francesca Annis, Leonardo Cimino. A Duke’s son leads desert warriors against the galactic emperor and his father’s evil nemesis when they assassinate his father and free their desert world from the emperor’s rule. A masterpiece of movie making, it hasn’t aged poorly, but it’s clearly from a time and place that doesn’t exist any more. I’m reading the book this movie is source from and so far it’s a pretty spot on adaptation. My wife mentioned she hadn’t seen it before and I found it cheap online, so we spent the...

Sincerely Louis CK

Directed by Louis C.K.. With Louis C.K.. In the long anticipated and controversial comeback of Louis CK, he doesn’t hold back when discussing topics like religion, god, pedophilia, traveling Europe, and of course his sexual misconduct accusations in his brand new special. He’s funny, mentions is scandal a few times, but then gets on with the show. Then gets back to the scandal once or twice again, but it’s mostly in the background, just going on while you watch.

Power Rangers

Directed by Dean Israelite. With Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin. A group of high-school students, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world. The second in a 2/$4 UHD movie set, the 2017 film did the franchise proud, but unfortunately didn’t do well enough to warrant a timely sequel. The soundtrack is still well received around my house though! Buy On Amazon!

Solar Opposites Season One

Created by Mike McMahan, Justin Roiland. With Justin Roiland, Sean Giambrone, Mary Mack, Thomas Middleditch. A family of aliens move to middle America, where they debate whether life is better there or on their home planet. Separating Justin Roiland from his work on ‘Rick and Morty’ is incredibly difficult, and this show does itself no favors by heavily featuring him as the lead role, though I guess he’s his show and he’s going to do whatever the heck he’s going to want to. Enjoyable first season, exclusive to Hulu, I suggest watching all 8 episodes, there’s some b-story that’s better...

Crown Vic

Directed by Joel Souza. With Scottie Thompson, Bridget Moynahan, David Krumholtz, Thomas Jane. Follows one memorable night in the life of LAPD officer Ray Mandel while hunting two cop killers on the loose. Thoamas Jane and Luke Kleintank have fantastic chemistry in a ‘first day on the job’ story that goes off the rails, as you would expect it to. I found this on Crackle, not sure if it’s an exclusive on there, but it’s free with about 50 commercials that kill the momentum every time the 45 second block of ads slams its way into your line of sight....
