Coherence: A classic indie darling from 2013, this lowbudget but high stakes sci-fi drama will leave your head spinning for hours after watching. Highly recommended to watch this unnerving tale with your phone put away and the lights out.
Thor: Love and Thunder is a hilarious and over-the-top comedy, with plenty of suggestive and outright adult humor that will keep the audience in stitches throughout most of the two-hour run time. With Christian Bale and Russell Crowe making their debut in the MCU plus a Guardians of the Galaxy Guest spot, Love and Thunder is brimming with charisma and pure acting talent. But star power and witty writing aside, there just isn’t enough comic book in this movie to really propel anything in the MCU’s Phase 4 forward. It doesn’t introduce new characters (good and bad), it doesn’t leave a breadcrumb for the new big bad guy (good and bad), and it certainly doesn’t have enough breathing room for any one single character to have a meaningful or lasting impact on the story it just tried to tell. While the audience may be laughing to tears throughout certain parts of the movie, it is a cramped and fast movie that does leave some things to be desired.
Weekend Watchlist – 7.8.2022 – John Hughes, Tom Cruise, and a parking lot fight in the news. That’s what we’ve got for the weekend watchlist. A classic 80s romp in the Breakfast Club, Mission Impossible, and Civil War.
Stranger Things 4 Vol 2 – A few days late, but here nonetheless. Vol 2 is an incredible finale, one that other shows should take note of. Full of lore, meaningful losses, and kickass soundtracks, Stranger Things continues to be one of the most fun shows currently in production.
It’s the middle of summer and that is prime box office season. 2022 is the year we all get to return to the theater, just like Tom Cruise in this random-ass out-of-touch tweet from a few years ago. So far 2022 has had a decent showing, with plenty of movies waiting in the wings to finally make their debut on the silver screen. Here is a list of every movie I’ve seen released in 2022. Click on each title to see the full review if available.
Picking up several months after the conclusion of Stranger Things 3, ST4 Vol1 shows how the gang is dealing with being split up across the country. Even though Eleven has left Hawkins behind, the demons of her past continue to haunt her. Meanwhile, those who remain in Hawkins are subject to several increasingly brutal murders
War of The Worlds – A strange mid 2000s Spielberg sci-fi adaptation, War of The Worlds is enjoyable to an extent but the lackluster CGI, weak PG-13 rating, and bizarre Tim Robbins casting make this more of a headscratcher.
June Movie Blitz – Here’s everything I watched since my last movie blitz. I’m planning on posting again regularly once Thor: Love and Thunder is released. Seems like a good place to pick back up.
May Movie Blitz – I’ve been MIA for a few weeks (busy busy busy) and haven’t had time to write or record so here’s a movie review blitz.
Wayne’s World – Party on
