Blast is a dumb 1997 action-thriller that had the potential to be the right kind of ‘bad’ movie and instead it was just plain bad, from the poor acting, the terrible writing (both in terms of story and dialogue) to the direction.
Bleeding Steel is one of the more perplexing movies I’ve come across in the last couple of years, one that is rife for anyone to riff amongst friends or, if you’re a Jackie Chan fan, does have some decent fight choreography.
Upgrade was one of the better surprise sci-fi movies of 2018 and although I can’t rank it up there with the sometimes equally disturbing, and cautionary, Ex Machina, I still enjoyed the hell out of it and by Logan Marshall-Green’s performance.
NCIS: Season 15 is hardly the best in the long-running series nor the best written, but I still generally enjoyed the season and Maria Bello seems like a nice addition, though hopefully she’ll stick around beyond a couple of years.
The Jack Ryan Collection is a solid release from Paramount for what I consider a nice franchise, however there never was one that stoodout, each being fine filmmaking and storytelling and nice performances from the respective actors.

First Reformed might be a technically well made drama, and Ethan Hawke does turn in an amazing performance, but I never found the story all that enthralling and in fact some of the scenes were unintentionally funny.
Blue Bloods isn’t a show I routinely watch but when I do, it often features strong enough stories but carried through with sharp writing and characters you genuinely care about and actors giving it their all.
Bound is still my favorite of The Wachowskis movies, even above The Matrix, which itself has also aged quite well. This one has two amazing performances from Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon and Joe Pantoliano for his part was wonderfully chaotic.
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the action-thriller, Skyscraper starring Dwayne Johnson. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
Black Water is hardly terrible and as direct-to-video movies go starring aging action stars, is perfectly serviceable but with a bland script and the fact the two stars aren’t on screen together until towards the end and even then, only for about 15-20 minutes.
How to Talk to Girls at Parties certainly does not give away what the movie is about by its title. It’s a combination of the 1970s British punk scene and science fiction. It is a charming flick thanks to Elle Fanning and Alex Sharp.
Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced the date and released artwork for the bio-drama, All Eyez on Me starring Demetrius Shipp Jr., Kat Graham, Hill Harper and Lauren Cohan. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
Criminal Minds: Season 13 is a solid enough season and the ensemble cast with a few new faces from the past couple of seasons that seem to gel nicely together. Now, the stories aren’t always the freshest and I’d imagine it might be time for the series to wrap up.
