Release Date: November 10, 2023

My Rating:

No good deed goes unpunished. After fulfilling a promise made at the end of Captain Marvel, Carol made some enemies. These enemies seek to destroy her for the danger she has created for their people. In locating her, Carol finds that her powers have become entangled with those of Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau.

SciFi Month (2024) – Aliens!

For Science Fiction Month (2024), I went with an alien theme. You can probably guess at least four of the films on the list. Keep in mind that most movies I watch are on my media server (unless I own it on Blu-ray or 4k disc). Therefore, at some point, money was exchanged for the film to be in my possession. Which means I enjoyed the movie enough to own it.

I’m also going to do something a little different this year for my monthly movie binges. Instead of just telling you what the movies are, I’m going to also do a short film reflection where I will mostly explain what I like about the movie. So let’s get started.

Movie Review for Free Guy

Directed By: Shawn Levy
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi

Release Date: August 13, 2021

My Rating:

Video game-themed movies are hit-or-miss, more often the latter. I can probably count on one hand the video game movies that were worth watching. Skepticism kept me from watching this movie but I kept hearing good things about it. I can honestly say, it’s much better than I expected and, definitely, worth watching.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian & Grogu Movie!

The Mandalorian & Grogu

If you are a fan of any part of the franchise you may have heard the latest, official, news. Jon Favreau will direct a new movie featuring the Mandalorian. The Mandalorian & Grogu movie will begin production this year (2024) but an official release date, or year, has not been provided.

There are no more details provided as it pertains to this new film however it gives us a few things to ponder.

Christmas Tree

A new year means let’s review December’s movie selections. There are a few in there that shouldn’t be a big surprise. There are several I always watch every year (and that list keeps growing). Let’s forego the loquacious preamble and just get into the list:

  • White Christmas
  • Scrooged
  • Star Wars Holiday Special
  • Santa Claus the Movie
  • 8 Bit Christmas
  • A Christmas Story Christmas
  • A Christmas Story
  • Bad Santa

  • A Charlie Brown Christmas
  • Spirited

MMT: Random Theme (2023) Robin Williams

The passing of Matthew Perry had me thinking about Robin Williams. As funny as Matthew Perry was, he’s a dim candle compared to the bright light that was Robin Williams. Therefore, for November’s random theme, I chose Robin Williams movies.

Robin Williams

There are so many films to choose from and I only own 30 of them. He is far more versatile than most people think but I chose to stick with his comedies. He is best known for his comedy. So here are my 2023 selections for Random Theme Month.
