Is this the real life or is this just fantasy, caught in a landslide, no escape from reality. Yes I opened this review with a lyric from Queen’s most famous song, sue me. Bohemian Rhapsody is actor Rami Malek’s love letter to the late, great Freddie Mercury. It’s too bad the movie doesn’t hold up to his amazing performance.

AMC A-List is the Best Deal in Movies today

Now that movie pass is imploding where does a movie lover turn to?  Since I recently moved, I’m not able to attend Press Screenings that often as the nearest press location is over an hour away so what do I do? I signed up for AMC’s A-List Program. After being burned by MoviePass and Sinemia I was skeptical about A-List. Check out the video below to see my thoughts.

Movie Review: Robin Hood is Fun! Michelle’s Take

I’m a sucker for Robin Hood films, to date I’ve loved every retelling of this yarn. There’s just something about the tell that is timeless and gets me every time. I’m not sure what people expect when they go see a Robin Hood film. I aspect a little romance and lots of swashbuckling this current incarnation delivers exactly what I want out of a Robin Hood film. The latest take on the classic tale, simply titled, once again, Robin Hood borrows heavily from the much hated 1991’s Kevin Costner’s Classic Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Personally, I loved the 1991 film.

Movie Review: A Star Is Born. Believe the Hype. Michelle’s Review

All year I’ve been hearing about how good the trailer for A Star Is Born was and all the early praise for just the movie trailer made me want to avoid seeing this and I’m a huge Lady GaGa fan. However, I don’t like walking into a movie with any preconceived notions, a film like this that has been praised to the high heavens before it was even officially screened. I believe nearly every version of this film has gotten award season love and the latest installment will be no exception. The story is timeless.

Who says physical media is dead? Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s just announced that due to demand it is increasing the production of run of Batman: The Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition blu-ray box set to 70,000.

The box set hits the street October 30, 2018 for $112.99. I’m a little salty because I own the DVD Set which has a horrible transfer.

Marvel’s Daredevil S3 Disappoints. Michelle’s Review

As someone who used to avidly collect Daredevil back in the 80s and early 90s, I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. It’s a solid show, but it is so relentlessly dour and one note that I just found it hard to get into. Season Three Daredevil is devoid of “humor” any kind of “lightness” and almost every character is just depressing to watch. Everyone on this show look like they need a psychiatrist as everyone is suffering from some form of PTSD. Netflix made the first 6 episodes available for review and honestly it was a struggle to get through the first three.

TV Review: Titans Takes Super Hero TV To A New Level. Michelle’s Review

Rejoice DC Fans you finally have the Batman you’ve always wanted to see on television! Only it’s not Batman, it’s Robin and he is kicking so much ass that I was giggling like a schoolgirl. I didn’t talk about my reaction to the Comic-Con trailer in July because I was decidedly meh about it. My initial reaction was “Oh joy, a dark, grim, Robin…How original.” I brushed the show off as just going for the look at how edgy we are,“tee-hee, fuck Batman”. However, Titans is much more than that and I was blown away by how much I’m loving this show. The launch trailer did  not do the series justice.

Television Review: NBC’s Manifest, Michelle’s Take!

MANIFEST — Pictured: “Manifest” Key Art — (Photo by: NBCUniversal)

Anyone remember USA Network’s old show The 4400? It was a fun little mystery show about 4,400 missing people who mysteriously showed up out of the blue one day. As the series unfolded we find out that not only did these people return without having aged, but they had mysterious powers and other weird changes. NBC’s new series Manifest appears to follow this formula (with a splash of This is Us melodrama) to the letter.

In Manifest, 191 passengers board Flight 828 in 2013 and magically reappear in 2018. To the passengers the only thing that happened was a little bit of turbulence to everyone else they died 5 ½ years ago and life has moved on without them. Manifest premieres Monday, September 24, 2018.

Movie Review: The House with a Clock in its Wall Michelle’s Take!

The problem with Jack Black’s latest film, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is how derivative and unimaginative it is. It’s a blatant rip off of several recent and upcoming R.L. Stine movie adaptations. It tries really hard to distinguish itself but it doesn’t and Black’s constant winking at the camera doesn’t help matters. Beyond the really long and weird name, this is a movie that wants to be creepy, but can’t go all out because at the end of the day it is a kid’s horror film; so it settles for being weird.

Movie Review: The Predator Becomes Michelle’s Prey!

You would think since I grew up in the 80s, Predator should have been one of those franchises that I was all over back in the day. However, shockingly enough, I never sat down and watched any of the Predator films from start to finish. That is until the recent 4K UHD release where I had a marathon and watched 5 hours of glorious carnage. Problem is the trailers ruined what few surprises The Predator had to offer.

Call of Duty Black Ops long awaited take on Fortnight’s Battle Royal mode is launching its private beta September 10th and ends September 14th. Why is Activision launching this anticipated beta on a Monday? Most normal folks have to work or go to school during the week, so who is going to have time to really delve into this? I have a lot of issues with this year’s installment of my favorite franchise, but Activision sucks me in every time with their continued support of everything I do. So, I’m back baby! The kind folks at Activision gave me 10 codes to give away.  Check out my feeble Beta Gameplay and initial Impressions below.

Update – added full Beta Details Included after the break.
