They Live – Roddy Piper and Keith David share the screen in this cult classic from John Carpenter. A must watch for fans of Sci-Fi. They Live, We Sleep.
Weekend Watchlist – Sept 10th 2021 – A double dose of real life stories and an indie sci-fi movie that we watched for #WhosInTheBox a few weeks ago. What are you watching this weekend?
The Book of Eli – an early 2010s apocalypse movie starring the ever talented Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, and Mila Kunis. #TheBookofEli is a decently satisfying apocalypse story with some noticeable issues. #MoviesNotFilms
Reminiscence – A very familiar concept with a promising twist that ultimately fails to deliver. Hugh Jackman and Rebecca Ferguson headline this Westworld flavored noir drama from Warner Bros and HBO Max.
Weekend Watchlist – August 12th, 2021 – Classic Sci-Fi, absurd reboot, and one of the early Marvel duds are on the watchlist for this weekend. What are you watching?
TRON : Legacy – An excellent sequel from the time before everything got a sequel, Tron Legacy’s aesthetic and killer Daft Punk soundtrack hold up to this day.
The Tomorrow War – On the surface, The Tomorrow War seemed to me that it would be another “Groundhog Day” type sci-fi movie, a la Live, Die, Repeat (Edge of Tomorrow). However, there’s enough of a difference here that it isn’t completely overshadowed by similar movies and I think that there are a few key elements that really make this movie stand on its own two legs. This time bending adventure (that’s got some sneaky good humor) from Chris McKay and Amazon Studios is a fun option for a weekend night in.
Weekend Watchlist – July 2, 2021 – an incredibly quotable movie, classic Shyamalan twists, and illuminating documentary. What are you watching this weekend?
Sea Fever – An indie movie from Dust Studios that fails to impress and falls flat at every turn. Featuring an interesting concept that doesn’t stick the landing.
Wizards – a bizarre and over the top lost to the ages animated movie from 1977. Wizards is sure to disappoint and confuse all those who watch.
