Something to do: Movies

This is the second DC Universe movie in a row I am excited about (at least I don’t think there has been another since Wonder Woman), I have been looking forward to Justice League for over a year.

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 Watch: Discs

I missed seeing it in the theaters, and it hasn’t been streaming anywhere that I could find (not even on Funimation who have the North American rights), but now it is finally available on Disc: Your Name. Featuring music by the Radwimps, it pretty much broke every theater record in Japan, and won multiple awards. […]

Thor: Ragnarok is the film I will be seeing this weekend; how about you?

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.

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

The winner this time is Spider-Man: Homecoming, pretty much my favorite iteration of Peter Parker on the big screen so far. As you can tell by the link, Sony hasn’t given the character up, just lent him to the core franchise in return for pulling some of that core franchise audience into their version of […]

The only actual genre this week lean heavily in the direction of horror, American Satan and Happy Death Day. Not really a surprise it being Friday the 13th and all, and the trailers at least make one of them interesting. But their are two movies that might be worth checking out. Professor Marston and the […]

There isn’t even a doubt, this weekend is all about Blade Runner 2049, the sequel I have been wanting to watch for 30 years. There are an awful lot of critics saying this story may be better than the original, I will reserve judgement until I get to see it for myself. But I have […]
