DC League of Super-Pets is a fun, not-so-serious take on super-beings and their animal sidekicks as a jealous Guinea Pig named Lulu decides to destroy the DC heroes and animals that resemble their powers. Lots of laughs, some peril and plenty of do-daring make this movie a hit for all ages! Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and others lend voices to the creatures. Stay to the very end for some credit scenes-they're worth it.

Under the Skin (2013)

This is a strange and haunting film. Scarlett Johansson plays a seductive yet naive alien who brings lonely and forgotten men to her apartment where they're consumed by an entity. She, herself, is consumed by the world and experiences to the point that she runs away, only to be put into flames.

The Fly (1986)

The Fly is a remake/re-imagining of the horror classic where a doctor experiments with teleportation with terrifying results! Seth Brundle goes from man to something else and his girlfriend suffers as his mind becomes fragmented and delusional. Sick and sad story of a man fighting his own dark, insect instincts as he mutates into a monster. Great film.

Lilo & Stitch (2002)

Lilo and Stitch is a delightful movie about a lonely little Hawaiian girl who loves Elvis and her family as well as a strange dog that becomes her best friend...the surly-yet-sweet blue alien experiment known as Stitch. The very odd couple try to avoid somewhat-mad scientist Jumba and his bizarre friend Pleakley was well as the menacing Captain Gantu with the help of her sister Nani and boyfriend David. Fun, mild violence and just plain crazy antics make this movie endearing for all! Watch.

Morbius (2022)

Morbius is the latest in a trend of Marvel movies to be just not very good. Jared Leto stars as the titular character, who becomes an anti-hero through experiments with bat saliva and blood. His "brother" Milo, who is suffering from some disease like Morbius, also gets his "Curse" of superhuman strength, speed, flight, etc. but goes on a rampage. Deaths ensue and gratuitous violence follow, along with smoky affects and a deadpan delivery. This is just two stars, and no-one knows if a sequel will be produced.

Westworld (1973)

Westworld is a 1973 Sci-fi thriller about catastrophic malfunctions at a resort for the wealthy, killing many. Yul Brynner is the Gunslinger, an advanced and very deadly robot. Creepy and with mounting tension. Great little lead-in to the current series.

Erik M.

Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story is Sports Comedy about an unlikely and unlucky group of oddball friends from a poorly-rated gym who enter a tournament to save their place from a greedy and manipulative businessman and his terrible team. What follows is pure comedy delivered by Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller and others as they Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and...Dodge their way into your hearts. A fun time.

The Boy (2016)

The Boy was an interesting little horror mystery thriller about an old couple who want their son taken care of...problem is, he's a porcelain doll. "Brahms" has rules everyone must follow or he seems to get very angry. Chaos soon follows as the doll may or may not be a large disfigured man living between the walls of a mansion who gives life and voice to "Brahms," A decent thrill ride with odd twists.

Erik M.

Brahms: The Boy II is a weaker and implausible horror story about a realistic doll that so happens to be with various families where murders take place, kind of like Annabelle of The Conjuring series. In this tale, a mother is attacked during a home invasion witnessed by a child who becomes, for a time, a mute. He finds the doll buried and, honestly, should have left it there, but alas, he and his family bring it home and strange happenings follow. It's very dull and follows many tropes, only to be a disappointment. You've been warned.

Sing (2016)

Sing is a musical comedy about a bunch of adorable misfit animals who share a love for music and the theatre and the koala who brings them all together for a show. Great tunes, a good plot and cute characters bring it all to life.

Sing 2 (2021)

Sing 2 is an amazing family adventure about music and dance-loving animals who want to perform at their dream venue...IF they can avoid being derailed by an angry wolf and his henchman, a down-and-out lion missing his mate, a lonely elephant, and a lot more. Famous songs, a great script, lovable characters and a few lessons pretty much leave me speechless and awestruck. Bravo.

Evolution (2001)

Evolution is a goofy comedy about an alien infestation coming from a crashed space rock. Silly creatures evolve and soon everyone tries to stop it in the most odd ways. It's OK.

Colossal (2016)

Colossal is a Dark Comedy/Science Fiction Drama about frenemies who become giant robots and monsters to battle out their differences; in the case it's Gloria Vs Oscar, with the latter destroying her diorama as a kid for being better than his. Gloria has to grow up and face the bad men and choices that she's made while saving Seoul, Korea in the real world.

Dragonslayer (1981)

Dragonslayer is exactly that-a poor boy attempts to kill a dragon and save the latest happless virgin from being roasted and eaten. He is accompanied by a girl who he originally thought was a boy. Great special effects for this 1981 film! Catch this one.

Splinter (2008)

Splinter is about an escaped convict, his girlfriend and others who are trapped at a gas station with a spiked fungus-like creature that seeks out heat and consumes then re-animates the flesh in a gory mess. This is a pretty harsh movie with an ambiguous ending.

10,000 B.C. (2008)

This film was just Meh and I didn't quite care for it. Sabretoothed tigers, terror birds and pesky men on horses attack ice-age villagers who're just seeking mammoth. Watch another stone-age movie.

King Kong (2005)

King Kong is a dramatic retelling of the adventure tale about a giant ape falling in love with a human and vice-versa, and the doomed story it tells where fame, money/greed, and lost innocence take its toll. Naomi Watts, Adrien Brody, Andy Serkis and Jack Black star alongside the imaginative CGI gorilla and the many terrors of Skull Island. This is a must-see, so do not miss.

Insomnia (2002)

Insomnia is a thriller about a 17 year-old girl who was murdered in Alaska by a popular writer and whose killer is pursued by a questionable cop. Atmospheric and with good performances by Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hilary Swank. Watch this.

Old (2021)

Old is an M. Night Shyamalan movie about various families that seek a vacation getaway after receiving terrible news, and end up on a beack were they quickly die of murder and age-related illnesses. High tension/stress and unthinkable questions make this movie a return to form for the director, including a seeming innocent cameo. Give it a good watch.

Erik M.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a Johnny Depp fantasy comedy adout a young boy who can win himself a candy franchise by being kind and good! Deep Roy, Missi Pyle, AnnaSophia Robb and others fill out the Oompa Loompas as well as the children and their exasperated parents, but Depp steals the show as the bizarre Willie Wonka, who now has a deeper backstory and a side quest of his own. Freddie Highmore tries to play Charlie, and he's OK. See both versions in order for the full effect.
