Godzilla - King of the Monsters 2019

Growing up as big fans of the Japanese Kaiju movies. Godzilla and his bad of monsters were always our favorite afternoon or Saturday movie time. So after the newest reboot of Godzilla. Alicia and I made sure we would support one of our favorite characters. This time this is a adaption of the movie Ghidorah the 3 headed monster. Not to be confused with the out right brawl of Destroy all monsters.

Close (Netflix)

Being a long time fan of Noomi Rapace from the “Girl with the dragon Tattoo” series (Millennial series) This movie about her being a female body guard was pretty interesting to me. How this bodyguard had to take care of an heiress that has just inherited control over her fathers million dollar business. British movie but something on my list

Polar (Netflix)

This Netflix movie looked like another version of John Wick but with one of favorite foreign actors Mads Mikkelsen.  An assassin that is on the verge of retiring is sent on his last mission only to be set up by his employer so they won't have to pay him his millions in severance.  he employer gets into a very bad turn events when they are dealing with one of their best and in the mean time, the assassin has his demons he is dealing with that he will eventually have to confront.  

Alita - Battle Angel

So this late release of the James Cameron/Robert Rodriguez blockbuster was highly anticipated but got lost under the barrage of the DC and Marvel superhero movies. So it was pushed all the way into 2019. his heavily CGI SFX movie based on a Japanese Manga series look like something that needed to be seen but had us skeptical. Here’s our take.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

So today we went to see the smash hit “Into the Spider-verse” with the kids. I thought it looked cool because I never got a chance to follow Miles Morales when he was released in comic book form. So when they said they would do a spiderman movie with Donald Glover. I was like Hooray its the Black/Hispanic spiderman. Well, that didn’t happen and then we find out its the MAU (Marvel Animated Universe) with multiple spider people (if you call a pig people?) Very different concept in which I never quite followed but actually knew a lot about.

Bitten by a radioactive spider in the subway, Brooklyn teenager Miles Morales suddenly develops mysterious powers that transform him into the one and only Spider-Man. When he meets Peter Parker, he soon realizes that there are many others who share his special, high-flying talents. Miles must now use his newfound skills to battle the evil Kingpin, a hulking madman who can open portals to other universes and pull different versions of Spider-Man into our world.

CREED II

We finally sit down to check out the sequel to the successfully re-imaged Rocky movie series. As we loved the first Creed movie done so eloquently by Ryan Coogler. We weren’t to excited to see this sequel even though it was directed by another African American director. Here’s our thoughts.
