Split is worth watching, as many Schmoes know. One is impressed with how uncomfortable Shyamalan masterfully makes the audience while staying within a PG-13 approach. One is impressed with the movie's originality and intelligence. One is surprised with a script so rich in surprises that the internet has not ruined them all. And, of course, James McAvoy gives a performance as memorable as Spinell in Maniac, Harmon in The Deliberate Stranger, or O'Quinn in The Stepfather.

Great film.

Yeah I'll definitely be checking this one out when I can.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is good, not great. Its main weakness is that the DTV gets trite and cutesy at times. However, comicfans will want to catch it. The 2017 Judas Contract modernizes the old classic tale rather well. And, it also contains some Easter eggs and double entendres aimed at the longterm, adult Teen Titan fans (who read Wolfman and Perez in the first place). The assembled cast is impressive. The action and drama are each of the quality expected from DC Animation. The story unexpectedly borrows cleverly from both The Avengers and X-Men movies. And, there is even an interesting after-credits scene promising future engaging episodes. I liked Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.

Well, I am the one man in North America who has not yet seen Rogue One. I am about to fix that. Such should be a mighty-fine use of time.

Office Christmas Party is pretty good, and it might be worth your rental. But, a person has seen it all done better in other movies. A viewer laughs throughout, and the comedy satirizes current corporate culture well enough. And, Paramount assembles a capable comedic cast. If you have the whim, give Office Christmas Party a whirl.

Going in Style has no reviews yet on Rotten Tomatoes. I hope that the remake is good. But, a lack of screenings for critics can mean something sometimes. Perhaps, I should not worry. I liked Fist Fight earlier this year. A good comedy is any comedy that a person finds funny, perhaps.

had no idea it was a remake

Gutterballs 2 ? that's actually a thing ? why ?

grelber37 at 05:40 PM Apr 05

Who knows why Gutterballs 2 exists? And, who knows if it is any good? Ryan Nicholson movies are hit and miss. However, G2:BD played once at Texas Frightmare in 2015, and its release has been promised ever since.

I saw "The Lure" last summer at a festival. It's a strange one.

Tonight, Agents of SHIELD returns to the airwaves. I hope that it is not complete shit. The Framework seems a horrible misstep in at least two ways. One, the plot is melodramatically cluttered with all-is-lost moments, and I hope that Whedon and the gang correct the show's overly busy story soon. Sensationalism (and cheap pathos) is not substance, but it can accompany substance. Two, I hate that a certain character has returned. This is ridiculous and (to certain fans) disrespectful. I doubt that the show-runners will correct the mistake soon, but a person can always hope that tonight's broadcast establishes Duncan Idaho's return as a gag and April Fools joke. Three, Framework could not only be the season finale, but also the series finale. May this show not go out like it appears that it might. BUT, I am perhaps being harsh. Someone, sell me on how terrifically that S4 is going to conclude.
TheChanges23 at 05:31 PM Apr 04

Thanks for reminding me about the show returning Grel. I hope this new arc is satisfactory for you. And as far as how the season will end? I'm honestly not sure. I loved the Ghost Rider arc and liked the LMD arc but I'm not sure how this'll land because we still need something or someone big to round this out. We'll see...

grelber37 updated his STATUS: 24 days ago

I am a little surprised. April offers few must-see new releases. The only new releases that I am only going to catch are Going in Style, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, and Aftermath. Fortunately, television brings the returns of American Dad, Agents of SHIELD (might or might not watch), River Monsters, and the NBA Playoffs (Go Bucks Go!). Do you know what else surprises me? Hollywood has not given us a Friday the 13th, Part 13 when there have been three spiritual sequels. The Hatchet trilogy is essentially the same fuck'n character in the same fuck'n plot played by one of the same actors who has played Jason. Part 13 should be an incredible gorefest with a wicked sense of humor, and it should be released directly to the hardcore horrorheads on-line, at the festivals, etc. The approach worked for Hatchet.

Well, I am back in the saddle again. A new job begins this Friday. Thank you guys for the well-wishes. I shall try to stay active on MFC.

Hey, has anyone been watching the new Samurai Jack on Saturday nights? The last three episodes have blown me away. Genndy Tartakovsky keeps taking the show to new heights that you always knew that he could. I am rewatching last night's episode during dinner this evening.

keep forgetting about that

How do you follow up on this? You don't. This is the '70s Legends of the Superheroes, BTW.

Atomica (a movie review)


I rented Atomica. You should perhaps catch the movie on TV sometime. SyFy helped produce it. Thus, this futuristic tale will likely play on that channel soon.

Atomica exemplifies adequate, low-budget science-fiction entertainment, and the story resembles an eighty-minute episode of The Outer Limits (1995). The CGI is really bad and quite cheesy, sometimes distractingly so.The effects are the film's main fault, on one hand. On the other hand, just like The Outer Limits, Atomica gets some talented actors to elevate the material. In this case, Dominic Monaghan and Sarah Habel are pleasures to watch throughout the narrative. So, the acting is good in this thing.

The script is a mixed bag. I can compliment it for its suspense and mystery, but I can also note that the movie has some pacing issues affecting that suspense and mystery. I can compliment its low-key approach to sex and violence and note that the approach aesthetically complements this live-action resembling a teenager's comic book. I can also criticize some of the nonsensical characterization. No one would plausibly be as stupid, naive, or gullible as the protagonist sometimes is; she simply must be so to move the plot along. Also, the narrative has these abrupt, non sequitur dream scenes that both do and do not work for the audience. Unfortunately, I cannot discuss the sequences much without sharing spoilers.

Overall, Atomica (a.k.a. Deep Burial) is a sufficient genre fix and a decent time waster.

Justice League might deliver this November. I like how the trailer introduces each new character. I have known Aquaman and Flash for forty years and Cyborg his entire "life". However, the general public needs to become engaged with a new super group. I like how Wonder Woman references an age of heroes, for the DC heroes are traditionally legends and myths more than Marvel's common men w/ everyday problems and extraordinary powers. Therefore, this JL movie might have its own personality separate from other cinematic comic-book fare. I am also hopeful that WB has adjusted the tone of their DC adaptations. Dawn of Justice suited some audiences; it did not suit others. I would not mind a fun time at the movies this autumn.

I agree. This film could wind up being iconic.

This 1950 15 Mystery Stories cover might make a good Batman cover. Although, it wouldn't work for '66 Batman vs. Two-Face later this year.

The review on Life is, to everyone's surprise, Mikey likes it.

I found it entertaining , but way too familiar.
