MOVIES WATCHED THIS WEEK

Trancers (1984)

“A gruff bounty hunter travels back in time to 1980s Los Angeles to stop a twisted criminal who can transform people into zombie-like creatures.”

Read mine and Sailor’s thoughts here.


Rocketman (2019)

“A musical fantasy about the fantastical human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years.”

Unless you are just a big fan of Elton John, Taron Egerton is the only reason to watch this because he delivers a tremendous performance. There is just nothing memorable about this biopic. It tried to be a musical at times but it seemed inconsistent. This was just fine. (3/5)


Blood Quantum (2019)

“The dead are coming back to life outside the isolated Mi’gMaq reserve of Red Crow, except for its Indigenous inhabitants who are strangely immune to the zombie plague.”

Very up and down movie. Nothing really new for the zombie genre except for a pretty smart and hilarious way to get rid of undead dead bodies. Acting isn’t great. Brutality is pretty solid. I do appreciate that it was just about survival and not the look for a cure or some place of refuge. It’s worth a watch if you are a fan of the genre. (3/5)
