Next (2007)
16 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's actually not that bad. Very interesting concept and nice special effects. Of course if you are a fan of Nick Cage, then who cares.

Ghost in the Shell
23 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Okay, all the "whitewash" haters back off. I'm not a fan of Japanese anime, but I like special effects and I am an expert technologist having worked in the computer software field for over 35 years. This is a good movie regarding cybernetic organisms, AI, robotics and the singularity. A movies prime objective is to entertain and the criticism can come later. This movie delivered.

Life (2017)
31 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Absolutely terrifying. Not in the visceral sense of Alien, but in a more disturbing way. This very smart movie begs the question regarding the introduction of an exo-biogenic lifeform. What if this alien microbe wanted to survive at all costs? That's the scary stuff that can keep you up at night.

Passengers (2016)
39 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

For me this was a surprisingly good movie, thanks to the exceptional acting of Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. This is a slow-moving, but suspenseful movie. The ending is inspirational and uplifting as J-law narrates the final sequence. Great for a quiet, rainy afternoon. Enjoy.

Arrival (2016)
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

For those of you who have not seen it yet, it may still be playing at the 2.00, matinee movie house. For those who want to see it, but is no longer available in the theater get the DVD, which I believe is being released on February 28, 2017. I already ordered mine, because I wanted to go back and see it again at the theaters, but missed my opportunity to see it a second time. There are so many things going on in this movie, that it will take me 2-3 more times of watching it to figure all of it all. Masterful acting, superior story-telling and thoroughly engaging from the opening scenes. This movie will make you weep and then warm your soul from deep inside.
