The Secret Resurrection of Suicide Sequels


PLOT:  After 10 years of leaving the agency that turned him into a killer, he is drawn back in for someone tells him he wasn’t randomly chosen.

                Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is back to find out about his father, the spy agency he used to work for and revenge too.  The movie is a thinking man James Bond.  It has excitement, drama and intelligent females.  The best thing about the film is Damon the original Bourne.  He is intense, macho and sympathetic.  It is worth seeming.


PLOT:  A secret government agency recruits super villains.

                Based on the comic book of the same name super villains such as Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quin (Margot Robbie), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and Diablo (Jay Hernandez). Their boss is Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and with a group like this you have to be badass and she is.  The cast is very good and the stand-outs are Smith and Robbie in their roles.  The villain is the Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) she possesses a woman and she has massive power but she is not well-known and she wasn’t interesting.  The Joker (Jared Leto) is in their too but not much and he is fun to watch. Hopefully, the next movie their will have a better villain.  It is a mix bag of a movie but the good parts outweigh the bad ones.


PLOT:  Pampered dog has to share with another dog.

                Max is a cute, spoiled dog and his owner takes in a big, furry dog named Duke.   They don’t like each other at first and then they get into an adventure where the two have to help each other.  It is very funny, a little sad and action packed!  It is a fun to watch.  It has made a lot of money so a sequel is in the works.  GO, GO NOW!


PLOT:  The sequel to 2011 The Mechanic.

                Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) wants to give up the life of a hitman but is forced to kill three people or his girlfriend will be killed.  Is Bishop a hitman or a superspy with all the gadgets, kills and the beautiful Jessica Alba.  Michelle Yeoh is a supporting character but she doesn’t do any martial arts.  It is as good as it gets with a Jason Statham movie.

Re-Boots, Realizations and Re-Hashes


PLOT:  The popular graphic novel now a movie.

                The graphic novel by Alan Moore and Brian Bollard is about The Joker who tries his best to make Commissioner Gordon insane by very demented events.  I never read the graphic novel but the movie is VERY GRIM.   It is also explains the origin of The Joker ( no back story for the longest) and you feel sympathy for him.  The ending is very strange, the viewer has to decide what it all means.  The movie is playing one day in select theaters and on video very soon.


PLOT:  An updated version of the classic movie starring all women as the Ghostbusters!

                Abby (Melissa McCarthy), Erin (Kristin Wiig) Jillian (Kate McKinnon) and Patty (Leslie Jones) are the new team who find, capture and take out apparitions (ghosts). They have a handsome but dumb receptionist Chris Hemsworth (Thor). The film is MUCH better than the trailer and the special effects are amazing.  Comparing the classic with the contemporary movie is up to the individual.  The film is not bad but it wasn’t necessary to be rebooted.


PLOT:  The crew must stop a villain who has a weapon to destroy the world.

                Kirk(Chris Pine) has doubts he wasn’t the perfect captain he should have been, Spock(Zachary Quinto) is having problems with girlfriend Uhura (Zoe Saldana) but all that is nothing when the Enterprise is attacked by bad-guy Krall (Idris Elba) and they have to evacuate the ship, survive on a strange, new  planet and stop Krall to unleash his bio-weapon.  Just another day in the Star Trek universe and it is good.  Star Trek: Into Darkness was okay to me but this was much better.  The evil Krall does have a back-story to humanize him a little and Jaylah ((Sofia Boutella, Kingsmen Secret Service) an alien who can defend herself.  If you are a fan of this franchise you will enjoy it and even if you’re not a fan you will enjoy it.
