Parallels (2015) on Netflix, about a small group of people who become unwitting travelers when they discover that a downtown building is a gateway to alternate Earths. This was originally supposed to be a TV pilot, and it shows. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work as a film since there is way too much left unanswered and introduced at the last minute. I would have liked to see where things went from there, but...

Late Phases (2014)

This film is all Nick Damici and he's the best part of it. Not an awful Werewolf film but not the masterpiece many are claiming it to be. Robert Kurtzman's FX work in terms of blood/gore is fantastic, but his werewolf designs are way too cartoon-like.

The Voices (2014)

Weird, dark, and humorous. Art direction is solid and there were some set pieces I absolutely loved. Cast is also pretty good here, especially Ryan Reynolds. As much as I enjoyed the film, I still think it ran about 15-20 minutes too long.

John Wick - Generic story but some great action.

Con Air- Brainless but enjoyable Bruckheimer action flick with a nicely self-deprecating edge. Coherently put together, the direction isn't much more than competent, but it kind of doesn't need to be. Some of the jokes are quite funny, and action sequences have a nice kick, a prime example of the sort of action movie fare that was at its peak in the 1990s: loud, stupid, amusing, and occasionally quotable

Cinderella- Disney's 1950 tale of a princess who's downtrodden by her evil family and marries a prince while she talks to talking mice. That's really it is far as the plot goes, the dated sexism is a little icky, and the story moves a bit slowly and relies on a bit of deus ex machina. But it has all of Disney's requisite cute animals, who are indeed funny and charming, some catchy songs, and the animation is genuinely breathtaking even 65 years on, with rich detail and amazing character expressions, staging set pieces which would be impossible in live action. No doubt it will remain a favorite of little girls for many more years to come.

The Seventh Seal- Ingmar Bergman's iconic art-house classic about the existential horror of life without God, framed through a story of a Crusading knight who plays chess with Death while surrounded by different sharply drawn characters, staving off the inevitable as he desperately searches for meaning, surrounded by nature's indifference and man's evil. Though dark and bleak, the film's cinematography is breathtaking, the characters superbly sketched, the acting is excellent throughout, and it's a genuinely brilliant look at the horror of mortality and the darkness of humanity. Just take your Prozac before you watch it. Is Criterion's Blu-ray supposed to look so grainy? Was that the director's intention? An art house classic.

Predestination- The Spierig Brothers turn a Robert Heinlein short story into a fun cinematic time-travel twister, with great performances from Ethan Hawke and especially Sarah Snook, who I didn't realize was playing two roles until over halfway through the film. Free of big set pieces and elaborate special effects, the film captures the tone of Golden Age SF very well, remaining largely low key and relying on its twisty plot, expanding Heinlein's gimmick into surprising sensitivity towards sexual "abnormality," and a nice touch of intelligence. Good fun, and the rare SF film more interested in the ideas of its source material than set pieces. But where do all you zombies come from?

FURIOUS 7 - 5/5 - It was badass & emotional. Vin Diesel showed up last night to tell a touching story of Paul Walker. Stay for Paul Walker Memorial at the end.

In the movie, I'm hesitant to call anything an actual twist. More just confirmations.

Never read the book.

'Goodbye to Language' (3D)

great fascinating use of 3D and the imagery bare (literally) plot wasn't as extreme as I had expected

Kick Ass 2 (2013)

Aside from a bit of unfortunate toilet humor, I enjoyed it.

Red Hook Summer - 3/5

Spike Lee goes back to his roots and makes another film in his hometown. A boy from Atlanta goes to New York for his summer vacation, where he is left in the care of his grandfather who is a pastor in a small local church. While there he learns that the world is much bigger than his sheltered middle-class neighborhood in the suburbs. Not a bad film, with an excellent performance from Clarke Peters. This could have been a better film if it weren't for the length of the film (could have used some trimming), the weak acting by the children, and the reveal 2/3 into the film should have come earlier and been explored a bit more.

Sabotage (2013) on Netflix. Disposable, bloody, and mildly entertaining Schwarzenegger whodunit about an elite DEA team that starts getting knocked off one by one (and, no, it's nothing like Commando). The reasons behind everything are ultimately pretty flimsy, but I guess you don't need much of a reason to blow shit up.
