Wonder Woman (2017)
Hey everybody!  DC has made a good post-Nolan superhero movie!   Wonder Woman isn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but Patty Jenkins directs Gal Gadot as a powerful avenging war goddess striding across the battlefield, but...

Alien: Covenant (2017)
Jim and A.Ron have seen Alien: Covenant, and declare it to be gorgeous, ambitious, and filled to the brim lofty ideas, but that it’s also really, really stupid.  Which is a shame, since that’s a flaw that mired it’s...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
We’ve seen Marvel’s latest installment in the never ending onslaught of comic book  movies, Gaurdians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and we think it’s pretty great.  Some debate can be had about whether it’s as “good” as the...

The Fate of the Furious (2017)

Aliens (1986)
Multiple-commissioner Josh from Saxapahaw, NC is back with another goodie, James Cameron’s take on the Aliens franchise.  One of the all time great sci-fi action movies, it supplies nearly non stop action with a sturdy heroine to...

Ghost in the Shell (2017)
Jim and A.Ron are surprisingly underwhelmed by the live action version of the classic sci-fi anime, Ghost in the Shell.  Unimpressive from a philosophic and even action standpoint, both it’s ideas and stunts seemed largely tired and less...
