John Carpenter’s The Thing is certainly one of the best sci-fi horror/thrillers out there and just might rank behind Alien and Aliens, though I still prefer those two. Where this succeeds, much like those two, is the claustrophobic atmosphere with the added subtext of paranoia.

The Nice Guys didn’t quite match my expectations but the laughs still were there and I did enjoy the bro chemistry that developed between Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling to the point I was able to overlook a story that seemed to get stretched a bit too thin, especially going into the third act. It’s no Kiss Kiss Bang Bang but still well worth watching.

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London isn’t a good movie and where the first at least had the fun factor, this one is left with bad writing and below average acting since it doesn’t have the benefit of featuring the likes of Angie Harmon, Ian McShane or even Darrell Hammond as presumably the studio wanted to cut costs.

Agent Cody Banks is hardly a good movie and probably on par with a Disney Original Movie, yet there’s some minor entertainment value and I at least did manage to chuckle a few times (more than I did with Zoolander 2) though the target audience is geared more toward the 12-16 range.

Birds of Paradise is an average, down-the-road, direct-to-video flick attempting to take advantage of high profile movies, in this case duplicating Rio. As cheap entertainment, it’s OK but the animation isn’t great though the audio/video transfers are adequate enough and at the one featurette isn’t terrible.

Volcano isn’t exactly a memorable disaster movie as it utilizes every cliché in the book but Tommy Lee Jones, Anne Heche and, to a lesser extent, Don Cheadle, each give admirable performances slugging through stilted dialogue and utterly laughable situations. Still, it’s passable entertainment but don’t go in, or leave, with anything more than what it is. The Blu-ray is a quick release by Anchor Bay, through Twentieth Century Fox, as they didn’t even bother putting in a menu system.

Meet Monica Velour is an uneven film between a story that never quite gels and a central character seemingly taken directly (at least in the looks department) from Napoleon Dynamite but still a worthwhile venture just for Kim Cattrall’s great performance. The Blu-ray has above average audio and video and although there’s only a handful of deleted scenes, the commentary more than makes up for the lack of features.

“Life is a dark chain of events.” That’s how this movie opened and I suspect this quote  struck home to the filmmakers as they wonder where their own lives are going. After watching Chain Letter, I would wonder that myself as nothing about it worked. There’s no suspense, the editing is manic, the characters are cardboard cutouts of every B/C-horror movie ever made and the story makes little sense even when the director tries to make a big Usual Suspects-like deal, out of the twist.

Yes, I’m as worried as you that I actually somewhat enjoyed Stomp the Yard: Homecoming. The movie has enough stupidity for me to enjoy for the runtime and for some reason I wasn’t entirely bored throughout the flick. I’m going to get myself checked out by a doctor later today, don’t worry.
