Weekly Recap: Power Rangers, Life & More!


Many will be inclined to go go and see Power Rangers this weekend and I can understand why. Curiosity is bound to get the better of many. The good news is that it's more entertaining than one would expect, especially when dealing with the teenagers with attitude. In other news, a new Alien rip-off is out in the form of Life this week and it's pretty good in a tense sort of way. A couple of new home releases are also here and I have accompanying reviews for those. And lastly, feel free to enjoy this week's very fun podcast!

In Theaters Now:

(About as good as a Power Rangers movie can get)

(Mean, lean sci-fi thriller)

(Fun to see this crew again)

Brief Thoughts: The Belko Experiment


I really enjoy putting my reviews together.  I honestly wish I could delve deeper into certain movies, but alas, I get incredibly busy and can sometimes only deal with movies to a briefer extent than I would prefer.  This is why I write these occasional "Brief Thoughts" posts on movies I have seen, as I want to at least offer some of my own perspective on them.  They may not be as polished, but I can at least get my opinions out there. This edition of "Brief Thoughts" features a review of The Belko Experiment, written by James Gunn and directed by Greg McLean.

The Belko Experiment: 3 out of 5

It's pretty amazing to look at the career of James Gunn and take in the idea that he'll likely be responsible for one of 2017's most well-liked film by audiences of all ages. Before getting a massive amount of credit for his work on Guardians of the Galaxy, Gunn was making films like Super and Slither. These are twisted pieces of work that balance dark humor with horror (or super heroics) and violence. The connection between all of his work is the strange level of humanity that can still be found within, as Gunn also happens to be a great actor's director. The Belko Experiment is an older script by Gunn and it hits all the beats you would expect from him. Add on Wolf Creek director Greg McLean, and you have an efficient and visually exciting satirical thriller that takes you on a violent journey through a social experiment. It's no John Wick: Chapter 2, but for a film set in a bland office building, it looks pretty good.
