Solo - A Star Wars story

We would say we are excited or looking forward to seeing this new Star Wars spin off but we had very low expectations.  We go see this new Origin story for Han Solo and look forward to Donald Glovers take on Lando Calrissian  and the characters we have grown to love in the Star Wars universe

Young Han Solo finds adventure when he joins a gang of galactic smugglers, including a 196-year-old Wookie named Chewbacca. Indebted to the gangster Dryden Vos, the crew devises a daring plan to travel to the mining planet Kessel to steal a batch of valuable coaxium. In need of a fast ship, Solo meets Lando Calrissian, the suave owner of the perfect vessel for the dangerous mission -- the Millennium Falcon

Deadpool 2

So Alicia and I loved the first movie for Deadpool and was looking forward to the next release.  This one seems to be about a lot of supporting characters with Deadpool in the center of it all.  We sit down laugh, scream and criticize the part 2 version of his second release of this Deadpool franchise.

Foul-mouthed mutant mercenary Wade Wilson (AKA. Deadpool), brings together a team of fellow mutant rogues to protect a young boy of supernatural abilities from the brutal, time-traveling mutant, Cable.

Jessica Jones (Marvel) Netflix Season 1 and 2

Being a Marvel fan, and reading some of the later versions of the Marvel comics.  I ran into the Alias series that jumped into realistic problems people go through but just happen to be super powered individuals.   The Alias series centers on the emotionally battered Jessica Jones which Netflix saw some value to make it a series. Here is my take on season 1 and 2 and a little of the Defenders series.

This Netflix original chronicles the life of one of the darker Marvel characters, the mysterious Jessica Jones. When a tragedy puts an end to her short-lived career as a superhero, Jessica settles in New York City and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations, which seems to be called into cases involving people who have special abilities. Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Jessica wants to do good, but her primary interest isn't in saving the world, it's saving her apartment and getting through each day. Based on a graphic novel intended for adults, this is not a superhero story for the kids

Lost in Space reboot (Netflix)

We took the time the other night and watched the rebooted series "Lost in Space".  Netflix rebooted this series and made it into something totally new (with a little references from the old 1965 series).  Family dynamics, Girl power in lead roles and an interesting concept to possibly a very interesting series.  

 It's 30 years in the future and the family has been chosen to start a new life in a space colony. On the way to what they believe will be a better world, the Robinsons' ship is abruptly thrown off course and they are thrown into a dangerous alien environment. Stranded with the Robinsons are unsettlingly charismatic Dr. Smith and inadvertently charming Don West, two outsiders who are thrown together by circumstance and a mutual knack for deception

Avengers: Infinity War

So first I have to say.  OMG!!! Here's our movie review with all the spoilers and heavy breathing while we explain our experience with seeing the new Avengers saga.  So be prepared cause I reference the Comic series Infinity Gauntlet a lot but try to stay on track with the current movie.  Whew.  This was such an emotionally draining action drama.

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet -- the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.

A Quiet Place

There's a big buzz about this new horror movie that jumped out to number 1 at the box office.  Critics are praising it and people are going to see it so I thought Alicia and I would go see whats all the bru haha was all about.  Emily Blunt one of my favorite actresses is on screen with her husband John Krasinski (the office alumni).  Alicia is not a horror fan but she is taking the plunge based on much of the talk and reviews.

In the modern horror thriller A QUIET PLACE, a family of four must navigate their lives in silence after mysterious creatures that hunt by sound threaten their survival. If they hear you, they hunt you.  A Quiet Place is a 2018 American horror film directed by John Krasinski, who also stars alongside Emily Blunt, his real-life spouse. The film is produced by Michael Bay's company, Platinum Dunes, which is also owned by Andrew Form and Bradley Fuller. The screenplay was written by Krasinski, Bryan Woods, and Scott Beck, based on a story by Woods and Beck. The plot follows a family who must live life in silence while hiding from creatures that hunt by sound.

Isle of Dogs - Wes Anderson

So this movie is one of the ones I wanted to see.  Alicia was not aware of this movie and not aware this was a Wes Anderson movie as well.  Being a fan of his two previous amazing movies,  Moonrise kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel. I had to see this.  Also a fan of Japanese animation and culture.  I thought this would be a good comedy drama to see.

Tomb Raider 2018 & 2001

We were taking it easy today and decided to go see the new tomb raider movie with the new popular actress Alicia Vikander.  We also decided to see the Angelina Jolie version all over again as well to see how much we remembered it and how good it was as well. We took the  opportunity to compare the two and see if it this new version was worth the remake of the remake of this popular video game.

Hoping to solve the mystery of her father's disappearance, Croft embarks on a perilous journey to his last-known destination -- a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan.

Runaways (Hulu)

Alicia and I had an opportunity to check out the Marvel series Runaway that was adapted to TV from the comic book series.  This delightful TV series was refreshing and the writing was a very well adapted.  Marvel has a good series on their hand on Hulu so look out for the next season.

After discovering their parents are super-villains in disguise, a group of teenagers band together to run away from their homes in order to atone for their parents' actions and to discover the secrets of their origins
