Movie of the Week: Emma.

Mostly because I am FINALLY making time to see this movie. I was ready to go see EMMA in theaters, and it’s been taunting me for the last few weeks. Tonight’s the night I finally stop mucking about and watch it.

Movie of the Week: POWER RANGERS.

No, really. My youngest kid got to pick for Movie Night, and he picked Power Rangers. It did not suck! It actually was pretty good. I mean, for something out of the five-buck bin. My kids enjoyed it, including the one too old for Power Rangers now.

Movie of the Week: THE VAST OF NIGHT.

The Vast of Night is free on Amazon Prime, but I’m putting it up anyway because it’s fun. 1950s New Mexico aesthetics, and I’m not gonna give away anything about the plot otherwise. Everything about it was fun, from the conceit at the start. But one of the other things I liked about THE VAST OF NIGHT was something that other reviewers noted: the movie doesn’t condescend to its setting. And it definitely doesn’t mock it, either.

Check it out.

Movie of the Week: ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES is actually available on Amazon Prime. You could watch it for free. I am watching it for free right now. But I’m tempted to get the DVD anyway. Because my God but it’s a glorious piece of crap.

Movie of the Week: “Die Hard.”

…Look, DIE HARD incorporates a bunch of Christmas stuff in the movie, OK? It just does. ‘NOW I HAVE A MACHINE GUN HO HO HO’ exists. They’re playing Christmas music all the time. McClain learns the true meaning of Christmas: saving your wife from a murderous European criminal gang. It counts.

Deal with it.

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.
