Wonder Woman

Beginning Thoughts: At this point for the DC Cinematic Universe, I have low expectations. Middle Thoughts: The training scenes for the Amazons are cool; I loved the variety of weaponry and skills the Amazons were demonstrating.  The fight between the Amazons and the Germans shows what I would expect from an advanced unskilled army vs primitive master army. The Amazons won, but at a cost. … Continue reading Wonder Woman

Alien: Covenant

Beginning Thoughts: I’m not a fan of scary movies, so I usually stay away from the Alien series. Unfortunately, this was chosen for the “Terrible Tuesday” movie. Middle Thoughts: It’s the little ones you have to worry about. The fledgling aliens were cute in my wife’s opinion. It was too soon after discovering how horrible the people were that she started rooting for the aliens. Ending … Continue reading Alien: Covenant

King Author – Legend of the Sword

Beginning Thoughts:  I saw the previews and didn’t think so much of this movie.  That’s how it became a new “Terrible Tuesday” movie tradition for my friends and me. Middle Thoughts: Well, the special effects are good and the opening battle was cool.  After the child escapes, it began feeling more like a mob movie than a King Arthur tale.  So thinking about Arthur as one Don … Continue reading King Author – Legend of the Sword

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2

Beginning Thoughts:  The movie is getting a lot of hype, but I’m avoiding spoilers the best I can (so far so good).  I’m looking forward to see how Baby Groot is incorporated. Middle Thoughts: Opening adventure was cool and a lot of fun.  The reversal of fighting a big bad guy first before having to fight the swarms of smaller enemies was a nice touch.  Baby … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2

Why Him?

Beginning Thoughts:  Why am I watching this so soon after Office Christmas Party?  Shouldn’t I watch something better as a pallet cleanser? Middle Thoughts: Surprisingly I’ve laughed and cringed at things in the movie and had a good time doing it. Ending Thoughts: Glad they didn’t just end with ” and the  lived happily ever after”  the video chat was funny and a unique way to … Continue reading Why Him?

Office Christmas Party

Beginning Thoughts: I know it’s not currently the holiday season, but let’s go ahead and take a look at this one. Middle Thoughts: Well Jennifer Aniston is still trying to get away from the Rachelle image, but Jason Bateman is doing Jason Bateman. Ending Thoughts: This movie is trying to be a better Bacholer Party but not achieving it. Something I Didn’t Expect:  I really didn’t expect them to … Continue reading Office Christmas Party

Mechanic: Resurrection

Beginning Thoughts: A Jason Statham action movie.  Ok, let’s go. Middle Thoughts: Jason Statham action movie with Jessica Alba. Ending Thoughts: Jason Statham action movie with Jessica Alba and featuring Tommy Lee Jones. Something I Didn’t Expect: I think I saw Tommy Lee’s house in the movie being explored by Josh Gates on an a travel show once. Overall: This is exactly what I would expect … Continue reading Mechanic: Resurrection

Beauty and the Beast

Beginning Thoughts: The original animated version of this film is one of my favorite Disney Renascence movies (and if you’re remaking it then bud you had better get it right).   That being said I am cautiously optimistic that this will live up to all my expectations. Middle Thoughts: The characters and the songs have been just as good as the original.  The environments are so gorgeous and … Continue reading Beauty and the Beast

Ghost in the Shell

Beginning Thoughts:  I’ve been avoiding watching the original anime (or any of its sequels) in order to not influence my opinion of this movie.  I didn’t want to think that wasn’t in the original; that sort of thing.  I want to enjoy this movie like I did the first time I saw the original. Middle Thoughts:  I’m really enjoying this world.  Every detail looks like it … Continue reading Ghost in the Shell
