My Thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens

star_wars_the_force_awakens_theatrical_poster

I’m going to start this post with a warning: there will be major spoilers in my review. If you haven’t seen The Force Awakens yet, go see it! It was simply amazing! I was absolutely satisfied as a Star Wars fan and I can not wait until Episode VII! With that said, I won’t be posting my review here. To respect those who may not have seen the film yet and are still trying to avoid spoilers, I’m going to link to hidden pages on my blog where the review will be. I may eventually update it after a while to be regular posts.

My Thoughts on Ex Machina (with minimal spoilers)

20150721_160040

I’ve split my review of Ex Machina into two posts. This post is basically just my recommendation and some general thoughts on the movie. There may be a few minimal spoilers, but I won’t get into any major details or plot points. The second post will be a more in-depth look at the movie that will contain spoilers. The movie cover says it’s “a mesmerizing spellbinder” and “you’ve never seen anything like it.” Do I think that’s accurate? Absolutely. Read More »

So I Watched a Movie Called Parallels on Netflix Last Night….

I don’t even know where to begin. I was browsing recommendations on Netflix last night and found a movie called Parallels. It sounded pretty interesting and since my cable was out due to a storm, I figured I’d watch it. Parallels is about two siblings, Ronan and Beatrix, who each receive a message from their father, Alex, to return home. They discover that he’s not there and find a bag with a weird device and some odd newspaper clippings. Joined by their friend Harry, they go to the address that was in the message and find an abandoned building. Turns out the building is a machine that can transport them to different versions of Earth, all co-existing simultaneously. Using the building they must find their father and figure out what’s going on. Sounds pretty interesting right? I thought so, but I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I would recommend giving this movie a watch if you haven’t already. There will be minor spoilers ahead but I’ll try not to give anything major away. Read More »

The Terminator Is Still An Awesome Movie

Ah the ’80s! A time when one man could purchase an armory of weapons with no questions asked and your hair was a suitable replacement for a motorcycle helmet. I’m so happy that I found The Terminator on Netflix. I’ve seen the movie plenty of times before on TV, but this was the first time I’ve sat through it beginning to end uncut. Watching this again made me realize that I remember Terminator 2: Judgement Day much better than the original, so there was a decent bit of it that I didn’t recall too well (it’s also been quite a while). My memories of the Terminator movies aside, I guess the real question is: Does it still hold up? I say, hell yea it does!Read More »

Early ’90s Sci-fi Hi-jinks! A Review of Spaced Invaders

Spaced Invaders is a science fiction comedy from the early 1990’s. While I wouldn’t say that it’s a good movie, I also wouldn’t exactly say that it’s a bad movie either. I didn’t look up anything before watching it, I just went into it based solely on its trailer. It currently sits at an 8% critic rating and a 50% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes and I can definitely see why. Let’s dive into the meat of this film and see what’s it’s all about. If you have any interest in checking it out for yourselves, I suggest you stop reading now because there will be spoilers.
