Mission: Impossible – Fallout

As big fans of the mission impossible series.  We always go see the maniacal Tom Cruise and what ridiculous stunts he will do in any of his movies.  Seeing the previews to this Alicia and I was sooo excited to see this movie just like it was a Marvel movie.  And with J.J Abrams being executive producer.  We knew it would be a big blockbuster

Ethan Hunt and the IMF team join forces with CIA assassin August Walker to prevent a disaster of epic proportions. Arms dealer John Lark and a group of terrorists known as the Apostles plan to use three plutonium cores for a simultaneous nuclear attack on the Vatican, Jerusalem and Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the weapons go missing, Ethan and his crew find themselves in a desperate race against time to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands

Killing Eve (codename Villanelle)

We jumped into a brand new BBC America series called Killing Eve.  A cat and mouse investigator/Assassin series with a twist.  These two protagonist are women and the assassin is a psychopath.  This British triller is very unique and we discuss the nuances of the characters and series.   

Eve's life as a spy is not adding up to what she had hoped it would be when she started. She is a bored, very smart, MI5 security officer who is very desk-bound. Villanelle is a very talented killer, mercurial in mood, who clings to the luxuries of her job. Eve and Villanelle go head to head in a fierce game of cat and mouse, each woman equally obsessed with the other as Eve is tasked with hunting down the psychopathic assassin. Sarah Barnett, BBCA president, says, " `Killing Eve' stands out in a sea of scripted stories as refreshingly entertaining and great fun.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (Marvel)

You all ready know, Alicia and I are marvel fans (not fanatics, I'm board line) so we had to go see the sequel to the Ant-Man first movie.  We enjoyed it and thought it was worthy for a sequel with the anticipation of The Wasp being premiered in the sequel so here we are on the premier weekend.  

Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy

Sicario : Day of the Soldado

Alicia and I sit down with great anticipation to see the sequel to the critically acclaimed Sicario released 3 years ago from my favorite director Denis Villeneuve and the original screenplay writer by Taylor Sheridan.  This new version is very intense and a bit more stereotyped and US policy driven but something we do discuss minus the negative portrayals of the Mexican people. 

FBI agent Matt Graver calls on mysterious operative Alejandro Gillick when Mexican drug cartels start to smuggle terrorists across the U.S. border. The war escalates even further when Alejandro kidnaps a top kingpin's daughter to deliberately increase the tensions. When the young girl is seen as collateral damage, the two men will determine her fate as they question everything that they are fighting for

Jurassic World (The Fallen Kingdom)

Since Alicia is so much of a dinosaur fan, We had to go see Jurassic world on the release week.  This is the third iteration of the Jurassic series and the second part of the Jurassic world series.  Looking forward to another fun and exciting Jurassic movie we go in very excited.

Three years after the destruction of the Jurassic World theme park, Owen Grady and Claire Dearing return to the island of Isla Nublar to save the remaining dinosaurs from a volcano that's about to erupt. They soon encounter terrifying new breeds of gigantic dinosaurs, while uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the entire planet

Lemony Snicket's "A series of unfortunate events" season 2

I sit down today with my Grandson Marsalis after we both watched the 2nd season of Lemony Snicket "A series of unfortunate events" series on Netflix.  He was so excited by it , that I decided to bring this 9 year olds perspective of what he saw and go over the series 1 and 2 from a childs perspective.  I enjoyed this interaction, Hope you will too.

When a massive fire kills their parents, three children are delivered to the custody of cousin and stage actor Count Olaf, who is secretly plotting to steal their parents' vast fortune.

Anon- Netflix

I sit down and review this Netflix movie called Anon short for anonymous.  A sci-fi thriller i thought would be pretty interesting and very relative to the privacy issue going on the present day with almost everything.  We go back to an amazing writer who produces and directs his own stuff and I do a single review of this movie because Alicia fell asleep on it. 

In the near future, private memories are recorded and crime has almost ceased to exist. But in trying to solve a series of murders, troubled detective Sal Frieland stumbles upon a young woman known only as "The Girl." She has no identity, no history and is invisible to the cops. Sal realizes this may not be the end of crime, and it could be the beginning of it

Tag (the Movie)

Today, in-between the so called summer movie blockbusters.  We decide to check out a comedy.  Something that seemed to be interesting and funny at the same time.  Tag, a true story about childhood friends that take one month out of the year to play the child's game of Tag with grown adults.Previews were somewhat hilarious so we took a chance.

One month every year, five highly competitive friends hit the ground running for a no-holds-barred game of tag -- risking their necks, their jobs and their relationships to take one another down. This time, the game coincides with the wedding of the only undefeated player. What should be an easy target soon becomes an all-out war as he knows they're coming to get him

Bluebeard (Netflix) Korean

I started this drama because it seemed as though it would interest me and I would move on to something else a bit more creative.  This awkward twisted serial killer saga, tells the story about a doctor that overhears some suspicious and perhaps brutal killing of someone while they are sedated in his clinic.  This movie takes you on a plot twisting ride that makes you ask, am I right or am I wrong. Or Is it both.  Something to be prepared for.

 

A doctor finds himself in the middle of an unsolved serial murder case after discovering a secret from a sedated patient. When dismembered bodies show up close to home, he must solve the riddle before the killer realizes what he knows.

Upgrade 2018

Alicia and I decided on going to the movie and flipped a coin and went with the reviews to choose this independent move from the the "Blumhouse" producer.  This Sci Fi action horror film turned out to be a lot more than we expected.  A good to movie after overdosing on Marvel movies and star wars disappointments 

A brutal mugging leaves Grey Trace paralyzed in the hospital and his beloved wife dead. A billionaire inventor soon offers Trace a cure -- an artificial intelligence implant called STEM that will enhance his body. Now able to walk, Grey finds that he also has superhuman strength and agility -- skills he uses to seek revenge against the thugs who destroyed his life
