Traitor of Mars

Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars – Fathom Events Screening

Everyone keeps asking me if I am excited about August 21st, and I keep saying, “The only good bug is a dead bug!” Of course they just give me dumb looks, because they are talking about the eclipse.

I remember my first eclipse, I was about nine years old, and I was convinced the world was going to end. Some of my friends had me all riled up about it, and when it finally happened, it wasn’t much to write home about. Now, when Starship Troopers launched in 1997, I actually did write home about it!

In case you apes haven’t heard yet, for one night only, Fathom Events will be showing Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars in select theaters near you. That’s Monday, August 21st! Mark your calendars, buy your tickets, and get ready to see something special.

Nocturne

Nocturne

A non-linear, slick horror film that bends the limits of reality but makes sense when everything comes together. Also, I have said this in many reviews, never mess around with a Ouija board, and if you do . . . always, ALWAYS say good bye! Otherwise you have just invited in any spirit that wants to come in. Think of it like your house, you wouldn’t just leave your front door open and not kick out unruly guests, would you? Especially not invisible guests with terrible dark powers! If only these “high school” kids had gotten the memo. The question isn’t if they’ll all die, it’s when and if you’ll even realize when it is happening.

If you are looking for a fresh perspective on the somewhat overdone Ouija board horror genre, Nocturne provides it with a compelling, and a bit confusing story-line. There are moments where nothing will make sense, until the very end, and the film never gets boring. I was definitely entertained.

New Series – I Hart Food

In the before time, let’s call it about three years ago, I stumbled onto this YouTube channel where this zany lesbian would get drunk and attempt to cook things. So, flash forward a few years to present day, and she’s been pretty successful. With over 5 million fans across various social media apps, she’s caught […]

Steel Dawn

Comet TV – August Lineup

Now, the film we delighted in watching back in my teens was Steel Dawn, starring action hero Patrick Swayze as Nomad, a bad ass in a post-apocalyptic world who has to help some settlers survive. I can’t really remember much about Steel Dawn other than it was pretty violent, and I think we were too young to watch it. But, now it is playing on Comet TV this month, so I can check it out again – FOR FREE! That’s 100% free, no illegal downloads or trick commitment to sign-up to any garbage to “get something for free.” It’s airing this Friday at 8P/7C.

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde

Swift shot: Set just as the Berlin Wall is about to collapse in 1989, Atomic Blonde delivers style and sexuality with a taste of neon punk and an immersive soundtrack inspired by David Bowie’s so-called Berlin Trilogy. This slow but sweet spy thriller does a marvelous job capturing feminine force whilst balancing the nuanced vulnerability that keeps the story from becoming a complete farce of reality. Our Atomic Blonde doesn’t always come out of her battles unscathed. But, damn is it fun to watch her turn set pieces into kindling as she messes up the bad guys!

Atomic Blonde also has the added pleasure of being a film you can watch twice to get a better appreciation of each character’s motives the second time around, once everything is revealed. If you like slow burn spy thrillers and beautiful women, you’d be a damned fool to miss this one in theaters!
