The Dark Crystal in 70mm

Another interesting choice for Alamo’s 70mm series. I haven’t seen The Dark Crystal in years. I want to say I may have via Somara’s DVD collection but I keep thinking back to my senior year of high school when it was … Continue reading

Trainspotting: 20 or so years later

With the upcoming sequel due in a few weeks, Alamo had a screening recently that I wanted to revisit as preparation plus I hadn’t remember watching Trainspotting in years. I did read the book after seeing it at the old Village Four … Continue reading

Lego Batman: Must See

The breakout character from the hit Lego Movie stars in what will have to be the sequel until there is a second Lego Movie. This isn’t a bad thing, it’s completely the opposite, totally awesome. We get to see the Will Arnett … Continue reading

Hidden Figures: Worth Seeing

Firstly, I thought it was weird that 20th Century Fox made this movie. Then I remembered how the crew at The Simpsons said Murdoch doesn’t really care what the entertainment division does, as long as its profitable, thus it can contradict his propaganda-hate … Continue reading

The Edge of Seventeen: Worth Seeing

This coming-of-age flick was sadly released in the midst of the holiday movie season which is a bad move 99% of the time. Maybe Seventeen will get a second wind through streaming because I personally feel it belongs in the pantheon … Continue reading

Rogue One: Must See

A Star Wars movie without a Skywalker focus was a rather risky move but holy crap, the people behind Rogue One pulled it off! The main impetus to the film’s success was pursuing a different style. While Star Wars tends to be a … Continue reading

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: Worth Seeing

This was a nice spin-off from the Harry Potter series which I found boring two movies in but I will always have a favorable attitude to the novels because getting children to enjoy reading is critical. Somara told me the “book” … Continue reading

Nerdland: utter disappointment

This animated feature starring Patton Oswalt, Paul Rudd, Garfunkel & Oates and a plethora of [Adult Swim] standbys via production company Titmouse (The Venture Brothers) should’ve been funny, it had everything going for it. Then again, The Star Wars Holiday Special … Continue reading

Moana Worth Seeing

A new take on the princess formula with better songs than the über redundant hit from Frozen. I had no idea that Dwayne Johnson could sing. The premise, the usual, a strong young woman upsetting the status quo. In Moana’s case, … Continue reading
