Permanent

This really cute Coming-of-Age movie set in the Eighties helped solidify how much I enjoy seeing Rainn Wilson in about anything. Before you ask, I’ve barely watched the American version of The Office. I have no opinion of it, thus, I … Continue reading

Charlie Says

I decided to revive this sub-category of movie reviews/discussion for several reasons: I just don’t go to the movie theaters as often due to my need to save money, the theatrical choices remain lame and the Pandemic isn’t really over. … Continue reading

Justice League: the Snyder do-over

Allegedly, this Snyder Cut happened via HBO Max through the fans. Who these people are, I have yet to meet one. I do readily admit to enjoying Snyder’s 300 and he did the best job possible with The Watchmen, a story that … Continue reading

So far the Snyder Cut is rather weird

Jennifer split for Padre to have a long weekend with her mom, daughter and friend so I decided to use the time to finally watch the long awaited Snyder Cut of the terrible Justice League. Hmm. I wasn’t expecting this cameo … Continue reading

Save Yourselves!

This indie comedy was one of the Pandemic’s many victims which is a bummer. Alamo Drafthouse would’ve treated Save Yourselves! really well, especially with the pre-show snipe, alien-invasion stories go back to HG Wells. I’m grateful Hulu got the streaming rights … Continue reading

Soul: Pixar rebounds…for now

What a pisser that I didn’t get to see this for the first time at Alamo Drafthouse for Soul was definitely an event movie and I can only imagine them having some original snipe before the main attraction. Oh, of course … Continue reading

Onward: Streaming at best

One upside the Pandemic has given us, Disney moving this mediocre Pixar movie to Disney+ since movie theaters are shuttered indefinitely. I was glad because I saved money, Alamo isn’t cheap when anything doesn’t deliver. The first warning sign I … Continue reading

The Life of Brian…still hilarious and relevant

Only fitting to watch this flick on Easter weekend! It’s the grown-up and Atheist alternative to being raised with sitting through Moses and the Ten Commandments on ABC every Easter night. It’s also the first movie I heard of to be … Continue reading

I finally bought or replaced the Apple TV at my house

I grew tired of watching The Mandolorian on my portable and the Disney+ App hasn’t been created for Vizio-brand TVs. Given my profession, you need to watch the hit Star Wars-based show immediately because co-workers are bad at withholding spoilers! Hooking the device … Continue reading

Firstborn: 35 years later, still great

Darned Hulu, finding favorite movies of mine with a looming deadline! I’ve also come to suspect that if the movie is getting yanked from the service in a few days, they’ve reduced its bandwidth or something. Every time, be it 1984 or … Continue reading

The Wandering Earth or 流浪的地球: 掷骰子

While Endgame and Captain Marvel tally up as the biggest globally grossing movies of 2019, this Chinese attempt at mainstream Science Fiction/Disaster Porn is in third place thanks to China buying 99% of the tickets; it’s not market size, it’s the limited … Continue reading

Children of Men: a cautionary tale we’re ignoring

I think this movie did pretty poorly at the box office because Dystopian films tend to fail when they’re released between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Can’t even remember why I didn’t see it sooner but it popped up on … Continue reading

1988: The Naked Gun, still holds up

Another entry for the Lost Tales or “Steve didn’t post this in a timely fashion.” In the end, does anyone really care? Maybe. I really wanted to get my recollection posted closer to the New Year because that’s when I saw this … Continue reading

The Little Hours

I’m a 100 percent certain the Catholic Church condemned this movie but it’s 2019 so nobody gives a crap, even the majority of practicing Catholics. Those denominations which hate or skewer Catholicism wouldn’t be fans neither, thanks to the nudity. … Continue reading

Split

With Glass coming out in January and it being a sequel to Unbreakable and this, I modified our Amazon Prime account to have Cinemax for one week (free) to find how Split connects the other two. Personally I have left M. Night for dead … Continue reading
