Stanley Kubrick would likely appreciate George Clooney’s The Midnight Sky for its representation of the vastness of space, the deafening silence of loneliness and the raw instinct to survive when there is no one else to turn to.Continue reading The Midnight Sky (Netflix)
Exquisitely awful, yet deliciously tacky. Future Folk is the the lowest budget silly movie you’ll ever love disliking, featuring banjo and guitar duets sung by space aliens in plastic bucket helmets while they try to save their home planet and Earth… for love.
Looking past the polish of exceptional music, animation and story telling, you’ll find a fresh perspective in Soul. It’s not an action packed riveting adventure that the younger audience will flock to. It is, however, a heart warming reminder to us “bigger kids” embrace the moment.

Imagine The Walking Dead in 16th century Korea. Except it’s better from the origin. If TWD is your flavor and you can handle subtitles, Kingdom is pure binge worthy. Watch to the end of S1:E3 and convince me I’m wrong.
Buster is less about a “transformation” as the brief description conveys than a downward spiral into deep, tragic mental illness. The outcome of which is always unpredictable. Rami Malek is perfectly disturbed as always.Continue reading Buster’s Mal Heart (Netflix)
The Ghost Bride is a romantic drama, with a warm presence of charm and humor and a bucket of supernatural that dances with the grotesquely dark side of death and the afterlife. In Mandarin, set in 1890’s China.Continue reading The Ghost Bride (Netflix)
