Something to Do: Movies

There are a number of choices this weekend, but top of the list in my mind is Pixar’s Coco, which just looks like too much fun to miss. It actually starts playing on Wednesday, to take advantage of the long holiday weekend. John Cusack’s new film Singularity could be interesting, but the trailer makes me […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Topping the list, Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets was an instant classic that didn’t do well in the US, since almost no one here was familiar with the French comic it was based on. We get another French film this week as well in the form of the animation Leap!, original title […]

More Man With A Mission

The first one is the newest track from Man With A Mission, My Hero was posted 12 days ago and has over a million views. The second track is 2015s Raise Your Flag, the song that first made me sit up and realize this band had some serious stories to tell the world, and not […]

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?

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 Watch: Discs

Continuing the reboot of the franchise, War for the Planet of the Apes could be a modern retelling of the period in history when the Cro-Magnon committed genocide by wiping out the Neanderthals. Teen Wolf: The Complete Series is not quite as epic but still has its moments. The Emoji Movie is just silly animated […]

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 […]
