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…

PODCAST: LOGAN AtlanticSC S02E03

Because #AtlanticSC continuously needs to promote itself as a fresh new podcast to be reckoned with, Jason and Lee chose to do like everyone else and have a discussion about LOGAN, the latest film in the X-Men universe, and Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart’s last incarnations of Logan and Professor Charles Xavier, respectively. Enjoy…

REVIEW: FIST FIGHT by Ashley Davis

Anticipation:  2/5   I feel more compelled to see FIST FIGHT because it’s a movie about teachers rather than because I have a genuine interest in the movie itself. I’m always curious to see how comedies portray the profession versus the dramas and biopics. The trailer did look rather humorous, if a bit dumb, so I’m interested…

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.

PODCAST: AtlanticSC Season 2 Episode 01 M. Night Shyamalan’s SPLIT

#AtlanticSC kicks off its 2nd season with amateurish audio issues… BUT, Jason and Lee have an in-depth talk about M.

The conversation becomes somewhat…

REVIEW: A Monster Calls (2016) by Ashley Davis

Anticipation:   5/5    When I first saw the trailer for A Monster Calls, I thought, “Oh, look, it’s a Groot who can talk.” That thought quickly faded and I was immersed in the visuals, music, and narrative. I’ve been anticipating this one ever since I saw that trailer, and every time since. I know…

PODCAST: AtlanticSC Ep.17 Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

This week, Jason and Lee suck the joy out of Christmas as they destroy George Seaton’s Miracle on 34th Street. The film stars Macy’s department store, sexism, sexual frustration and psychotherapy.

REVIEW: Arrival (2016)

Anticipation:   4/5   Denis Villeneuve has been unstoppable since Incendies (2010). Sicario was one of the best films of 2015. Produced in part by Shawn Levy, the man behind hit Netflix series Stranger Things (2016), and shot by Bradford Young (Pawn Sacrifice, A Most Violent Year, Selma), Arrival seems to want to bring old school sci-fi…

REVIEW: I, Daniel Blake (2016) by Mark Putley

Anticipation:     3.5/5    You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, similarly you shouldn’t judge a film by its trailer, and that’s exactly what I did. I saw a trailer for I, Daniel Blake the last time I was at the pictures and I thought ‘yes, that’s going to be a good one.’ I, Daniel…

REVIEW: The Edge of Seventeen (2016) by Ashley Davis

Anticipation:   3/5   Twitter’s algorithm really wanted me to be aware of this movie. Every eighth tweet in my feed was the same ad for it, the one comparing it to the greatest teen comedies of the last three decades. And since I liked their selection of comparison films, I was compelled to see this…

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…
