REVIEW: GET OUT (2017) by Ashley Davis

Anticipation:   3/5    I haven’t seen any trailers for GET OUT. The most I’ve seen is an image of one of the characters crying in a close-up. Everyone is buzzing about it, and I honestly haven’t heard a bad thing. I want to see what the hype is all about. Plus, I’m a huge fan…

This week, #AtlanticSC covers KONG: SKULL ISLAND and GODZILLA (2014)! We know we’re a week behind on everyone (3 years for Godzilla!), but we don’t care because of reasons.

PODCAST: John Wick Chapter 2 AtlanticSC S02E02

This week, Jason and Lee discuss JOHN WICK CHAPTER 2 and all the action, stunts and world-building therein.

REVIEW: Doctor Strange (2016) by Jason Michael

Anticipation:  3/5  In the HBO produced Talking Funny, Chris Rock explains that audiences “want the same thing, but different” when it comes to their entertainment. Since its inception, Marvel Studios has definitely come to exploit that. I haven’t hidden that superhero fatigue has started to settle in my bitter, jaded self. But, I like Benedict…

REVIEW: The Accountant (2016) by Ashley Davis

Anticipation:    3/5    I saw The Accountant more because of a snafu rather than outright desire to see. The original plan was to see Keeping Up with the Joneses, but the theater’s download was corrupted. It’s Ben Affleck doing what he’s great at. Couldn’t be too bad, right? Final Verdict:   4.5/5   Based on…

This week, Jason and Lee give Jack Reacher naysayers the two-fingered salute as they underline both the negatives and the positives of Tom Cruise’s latest action/comedy. The film is directed by Edward Zwick and stars Tom Cruise running,  Tom Cruise sweating, Tom Cruise fighting, Tom Cruise bleeding, Tom Cruise threatening, and Tom Cruise killing. Ep11…

Film Grains: Jason Bourne (2016)

Anticipation:   1/5    Haven’t we said everything we needed to say with the previous Bourne movies? It’s a good series, but by the time The Bourne Ultimatum had come around, I was already getting tired. Final Verdict:    3.5/5     Jason Bourne will be the first in the Bourne franchise to be regarded as a product of its…

A Commentary on the Ultra-Postmodern Age of Excess: Kingsman The Secret Service

Anticipation: 3/5  Matthew Vaughn‘s movies are an acquired taste.  Layer Cake was fun as was Kick-Ass. Stardust is definitely underrated,  but X-Men: First Class … meh.  Kingsman: The Secret Service doesn’t seem to want to take itself too seriously and that may be its appeal. Final Verdict: 5/5  Vaughn’s commentary on the excesses of today’s…
