Movie of the Week: Face/Off.

Why Face/Off? Because I wanted to watch it, it is inexplicably not in my movie collection*, and it’s, like, seven bucks on Amazon. I feel that this is more or less a no-brainer, right?

*I have a surprisingly large collection, or at least I find it surprisingly large, these days. When I moved down from NJ I was living on my own for a year until we could get a house (and housemates); I had to do something with my evenings, so what I did was watch movies. Even after we did get the house I would still buy ’em; I used Damnation Decade as a handy reference point to really get into Seventies apocalypse/dystopian flicks, and it worked out. I have movies in those binders I never remember buying.

Movie of the Week: AVENGERS: ENDGAME.

AVENGERS: ENDGAME is… finally out? There was weirdness involved in the release dates. I’m not exactly sure how that was all going down. But, no matter: it was there while I was shopping for school supplies…

Mmmm. School supplies.

…so I picked it up. Gonna find me some Howard the Duck.

Movie(s) of the Week: Captain Marvel.

So, we were at the Target today, and I saw the movie starring Captain Marvel, and then my wife saw the Captain Marvel movie. I wanted to see the movie starring Captain Marvel again and she wanted to see the Captain Marvel movie, so we ended up getting both the movie starring Captain Marvel and the Captain Marvel movie. Which was fine, because I don’t mind seeing the Captain Marvel movie again and she had sort of meant to see the movie starring Captain Marvel anyway.

Plus, there was a nice bonus at the checkout line. It turned out that the Captain Marvel movie was on sale. Shazam!

Movie of the Week: Aquaman.

They were just GIVING Aquaman out for ten bucks at the Target. TEN BUCKS. And this was the Blu-Ray plus digital version, too! What was I supposed to do, just walk on past and go get the orange juice that I was there for? I’m not STUPID.

Movie of the Week: Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Why? Because I want to push back a little. I had a good time at Age of Ultron. Yeah, yeah, it’s not the best MCU movie, but watching the Avengers go around and group content their way through dungeons was fun. Everybody likes the individual-hero movies better, sure, but I’m down with the ensemble flicks, too.

So there.

Movie of the Week: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Not available in DVD for another two weeks, but my wife has already indicated that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse should be acquired for the house. …Given how difficult it can be to get her to the movies in the first place, that’s a pretty good indication to how much she loved this flick. Personally, I think my favorite character was Spider-Ham*. Because, you know: I don’t have a problem with cartoons.

Movie of the Week: Unforgiven.

Because Unforgiven is a great movie, that’s why. And I’m reminding myself that I should watch it again. When the kids aren’t around, of course.

Movie of the Week: Ant-Man.

I picked Ant-Man more or less as a reminder that you should probably start taking this opportunity to make sure that you’re checked out on the MCU. I sincerely doubt that Marvel’s going to pause in the middle of Avengers: Endgame just to let you to catch up.  And, honestly: can you really expect them to?  This is the last stage of an eleven-year ride, and the time for recaps have passed.

Plus, this is one of the fun ones.  You want to start with one of the fun ones.

Movie of the Week: The Thing.

I gotta watch The Thing again.  …During the day, when my kids aren’t here.  I’m pretty sure that it would freak them utterly out.

Movies of the Week: The Night Stalker/The Night Strangler.

Yes, the Kolchak: The Night Stalker TV series was pretty bad.  But these two made-for-TV movies?  These were the true quill when it came to TV horror. …I’m reasonably sure.  It’s been a while since I saw them.  And, like many another TV gem, they’re surprisingly hard to get in digital format.

Still.
