Lilo & Stitch

Directed by Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders. With Daveigh Chase, Chris Sanders, Tia Carrere, David Ogden Stiers. A Hawaiian girl adopts an unusual pet who is actually a notorious extra-terrestrial fugitive. There’s a Lilo & Stitch cinematic universe on Disney+ and I’m dipping my toes right into it. I’ve already this the first movie, but I watched it again to remind me why I loved it so much, it’s one of the few solid science fiction films from Disney, and it combines Polynesian concepts to great effect.

Portals

Directed by Gregg Hale, Liam O’Donnell, Eduardo Sánchez. With Neil Hopkins, Ruby O’Donnell, Phet Mahathongdy, Deanna Russo. This genre-bending anthology takes place during a series of world-wide blackouts, after which millions of mysterious cosmic anomalies appear everywhere across the planet. While many flee from the objects, the real terror sets in as people are drawn toward – and into – them. Not one movie, but three! Or maybe even four depending on how you count! One of the shorts was good, one was ok, the other was forgettable, but the concept is pretty solid. Buy On Amazon!

The Aeronauts

Directed by Tom Harper. With Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne, Himesh Patel, Vincent Perez. Pilot Amelia Rennes (Felicity Jones) and scientist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) find themselves in an epic fight for survival while attempting to make discoveries in a gas balloon. Movies with only a couple actors in them are difficult, but this one was done well enough that I’d recommend you actually see it in theaters if you have the ability to. Buy On Amazon!
