This mystery, sci-fi movie literally blew me away! I was on the edge of my seat for about 75% of the time. Typical alien movies are basically monster movies, but Arrival flips the norm and delivers a much different perspective. Instead of an action thriller, it’s more suspenseful, but it builds up beautifully. The alien lifeforms are intelligent, but our protagonists are also intelligent. Amy Adams’ performance was fantastic and all of her interactions with the aliens are phenomenal. This movie plays with time in a way I’ve never seen before and I loved it! Can’t recommend this movie enough!
I got slightly more gore than I had predicted with this sci-fi horror flick, but it was hard to stop watching! I wasn’t sure what to expect and the writers/directors kept me guessing throughout. Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski are both credited for writing and directing this film and they both have an extensive background in filmography. Most recently, they worked on Suicide Squad in the Art and Makeup Department, respectively. Unlike Suicide Squad, I can actually find something good to say about this movie. Although the gore was a bit over the top, the monsters in this movie were truly terrifying. And they don’t shy away from showing you every gross imperfection. It’s plain to see how each of the director’s backgrounds contributed toward this horror movie. Definitely not for the faint of heart! Happy Watching.

Regrettably, I’ve never seen the tv show Lost in Space was based on, but don’t hold that against me. I’m reviewing the movie here, not the show. I was 6 when this movie came out and probably at the perfect age to really get sucked into this story. Almost 20 years later and I still have a good time watching it. It’s like a space, road trip, adventure movie which are all positive things in my book! In fact, I foresee myself reviewing a lot more sci-fi movies in the future. There’s something about being in space that makes even the lowest budget flicks seem grand and expansive. Anyways, Lost in Space banks on that love for space by having the Robinson family continually hurdle over space related obstacles, only to find more hardships (pun intended). I could list several things that I like about this movie, but I’d rather list the one thing that I don’t: the ending. Aside from the fact that the movie gives itself at least 3 acceptable opportunities to end, but gets dragged out, somebody decided it would be a good idea to add a time travel element to this space, road trip, adventure move. See, that’s when those positive things I mentioned earlier become too much. If there’s going to be time travel in your movie, please warn me right away and don’t try to sneak it in during the last scene. I’m no time travel expert, but I guarantee you that the people who made this movie weren’t either. Did I mention that Gary Oldman turns into a spider-crab monster? Because they also throw that in there at the end. Happy Watching.
“Danger, Will Robinson, danger!”
This is my most recent addiction. Recommended to me by a friend on Facebook, Misfits literally has everything a person could want in a show: sex, drugs and superhuman powers. It’s definitely a unique show to say the least and that’s why I can’t stop watching.
Misfits is a British sci-fi comedy-drama about a young group of “Misfits” sentence to work in a community service program. The first season begins with a strang electrical storm which shocks the offenders and grants them supernatural powers.
Needless to say, their journey gets much crazier from there. My friend stood behind this show and now I can personally vouch for it. You need to check out this show! I want your opinion.
Prometheus is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott. Set in the late 21st century, the story follows the crew of the spaceship Prometheus as they explore an advanced alien civilization in search of the origins of humanity.
Conceived as a prequel to Scott’s 1979 science fiction horror film Alien. Writers Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof have developed a separate story that precedes the events of Alien, but which is not directly connected to the films in the Alien franchise. According to Scott, though the film shares “strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak”, and takes place in the same universe, Prometheus will explore its own mythology and ideas.
I am very excited to see this movie. Like if you want to see it too!
