Project Power 2020 8 out of 10. (Netflix Movie)


Project Power 2020 8 out of 10.  (Netflix Movie)

Finally a direct to Netflix movie worth watching. The film had a terrific cast.  It was basically an interesting Super Hero meets cop drug story.  I would give it points for originality --expect for the fact that the drugs that could give people super powers actually reminded me of the Inhumans story line on Agents of Shield from a couple years back.  The angle of making it a drug that someone could take and the powers only being temporary gave the story and interesting angle and the strong cast made for a surprisingly compelling story.  I'd definitely say that this take on a superhero tale was worth a watch.

Portals 2019 5 out of 10 (Quick Thoughts)


Portals 2019  5 out of 10

This movie had a really cool concept like something out of an Arthur C Clarke novel- but instead of trying to tell one really good story involving the concept it ended up telling 3 mediocre stories.  The idea of a bunch of mysterious portals showing up all over the earth was such a cool idea. It almost feels like the creatives behind this had this original concept --but couldn't agree so instead told three versions of what it could be instead of just really concentrating on one great idea of what it was.  It made for a movie that had potential -- but didn't live up to it.

Palm Springs 2020. 8+ out of 10. (Time Travel Movie #20)


Palm Springs 2020. 8+ out of 10.  (Time Travel Movie #20)

I'm not a huge Andy Sandberg fan --but the second I found out it was a Time Loop movie I was in.   Since 2020 has been such a crazy year and literally almost all 2020 movies have been either delayed or sent straight to streaming this may actually end up being my favorite film of the year.   It plays around with the concept of a time loop in the same way as the movie Groundhog's Day did --except the main character starts the movie out having already been in the time loop for quite some time and the twist is a couple other people have over time become trapped in the loop as well.  The way the movie has fun with and plays with this concept was a delight.  The main character almost just plays around with the world as if he is in a video game because he has been stuck in this loop for so long.   We get to see this loop more through the eyes of the girl from the wedding that he wakes up as a guest of everyday since she is new to the loop.   Just writing this blog makes me like the film better.  This may be the kind of film that I like more upon repeated viewings.   If you enjoyed Groundhog's Day and like Time Loop flicks I would rank this as a must see fun comedy film.

It Came From he Desert 2017. 5 out of 10. (Quick thoughts)


It Came From he Desert 2017. 5 out of 10. 

The trailer and poster gave me false hope that it could be better than it was. It was an average Giant Ant film with motorbikes. I was hoping the film was going to be funnier.  The trailer gave the impression that it was more of a parody of these types of movies, but it just fell kind of flat in the delivery.
