Something to do: Movies

There are some great films playing this weekend, but almost all of them seem to be at film festivals. The latest iteration of Murder on the Orient Express looks like the best option to me, but while the book was a masterpiece and the cast is world class, it really isn’t science fiction or even […]

Something to Do: Movies

On first glance I couldn’t spot any genre movies this week, but it turns out there is one that just might fit the bill. Suburbicon is surreal enough that I think it fits comfortably in the Fantasy genre, so it gets my vote this time around.

Something to Do: Movies

The obvious genre release this week is Geostorm, with weather used as a weapon of mass destruction, controlled from a huge orbital facility like the IIS on steroids. But the trailer reminds me all too much of the disaster films of the 1960s through the 1980s, which I tend to consider formulaic and boring. The […]

Something to Watch: Discs

TV has iZombie: The Complete Third Season while movies bring us Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which seem like the best selections of the week to me. A Ghost Story may have some possibilities although it doesn’t seem quite genre to me, and while Fabricated City is more about gaming than […]

Something to Do: Movies

There isn’t much on offer this week, although Realive has some serious potential if they did it right; I missed it when it was on Sci-Fi, so I don’t really know. I am definitely not going to bother to see the remake of the horror flick Flatliners. The one film that looks like it could […]

Something to Do: Movies

There are a couple of good options this week. I pretty much have to see Kingsman: The Golden Circle because the first one was such a hoot. And I am a big fan of the franchise, so I will probably also check out The LEGO Ninjago Movie, having laughed my way through their Batman endeavor. […]

Something to Watch: Discs

The best movie from the DC Cinematic Universe to date, Wonder Woman is riveting, and it looks like they filled the disc version with a TON of features. Up until this movie I have much preferred their television presentations, and we get one of them as well in the form of Arrow: The Complete Fifth […]

Something to Watch: Discs

We have two titles from the DC Universe this week, with Gotham: The Complete Third Season and the animated DCU: Batman and Harley Quinn both hitting the shelves. I find the live action TV show addictive, at least the first two season, so I look forward to binging my way through it. The fantasy comedy […]

Something to Do: Movies

The genre entry is Dave Made a Maze, and indie fantasy which has been quietly winning awards at film festivals for a while now. I suspect it won’t be getting a lot of screens across the country, so you may have to hunt for it if you want to see it. The Hitman’s Bodyguard isn’t […]

Something to Watch: Discs

It didn’t come anywhere near me in its limited theatrical run, so Colossal has to be at the top of my personal list this week. It looks amazing in the trailer, and the premise is not one I have ever heard of, so I have to see it. Also this week The Circle is technology […]
