CAM (Netflix)

This was an odd movie from Netflix that kept showing up in my feed. Basically a Cam girl (actresses that gets money from porn cam’s) that some how gets her identity stolen. Skip the profession she is in. Check out the interesting risk this women will have to go through to get her identity back. Won awards as well. Based on the life of the writer who was a Cam girl.

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.

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

Ready Player One (the movie)

Alicia and I start to jump into our Summer movies by checking out Spielberg's movie, video game virtual reality extravaganza.  The big hype is the visuals and the iconic images from the past showing up in the movie but we see if this was just another Hunger games technical upgrade. 

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure “Ready Player One,” based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name. The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger

Pacific Rim: Uprising

Alicia and I was looking forward to watching this sequel to the Guillermo de Toro movie.  Once again good diversity with the characters and we are looking forward to the action with a better story line than the Transformers series.

Dark Matter (SyFy) Season 3

Alicia and get around to review Dark Matter after watching the first two seasons.  The series are on us and we were excited to see the 3rd season come out.  But highly disappointed to know it was the last season.  

When crew members working on a derelict spaceship awaken from stasis, they have no memory of who they are or how they got onto the vessel. The only clues to their identities are weaponry and a destination. They must band together to fight off the threats they face on a voyage filled with vengeance, betrayal and secrets.  The sci-fi series is based on the graphic novel of the same name.
