In Theaters This Week (8/26/2016) – Don’t Breathe, Mechanic: Resurrection, Hands of Stone, Southside With You

Mechanic: Resurrection, Jason Stathaim
Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  August 26th continues the doldrums of August.  If you need to catch up, The Walking Dead: Season Six came out on Blu Ray this week…..still want to hear about the movies, huh? Ok, your call. Continue reading In Theaters This Week (8/26/2016) – Don’t Breathe, Mechanic: Resurrection, Hands of Stone, Southside With You

Trailer Time: Mr Church Trailer #1 (2016) *Did Eddie Murphy Make a Movie That Doesn’t Suck???*

Eddie Murphy has to be one of the most frustrating talents in modern Hollywood history.  Exploding into national prominence while still in his late teens on SNL and through his incendiary stand-up, he initially made some of the best comedies in recent decades with Trading Places, Coming to the USA, etc.  Then his career fell off the shelf until he resurrected it with The Nutty Professor.  Then it didn’t take too long before his career fell off a second shelf of amazingly bad films.  Then it seemed like he was going to reinvent himself as a dramatic actor, earning an Oscar nomination for his role in Dreamgirls, but that never seemed to pan out, and the actor faded from prominence.  Mr. Church looks like it might be a little treacly, but it looks LOADS better than anything Murphy has put forward in years.  During the trainwreck that was Tomorrowland, I kept thinking how likable and talented Britt Robertson was (and you really had to try to keep that opinion going as things ate their own tail in that film).  I’m glad she’s getting another vehicle, and we’ll see if this is as promising as it looks when Mr. Church opens September 16, 2016.Mr. Church, Britt Robertson, Eddie Murphy

My Favorite Scene: Breaking Bad Season 1 (2008) “Fulminated Mercury”

Breaking Bad sounds like a horrible idea in concept.  A high school chemistry teacher finds out he has terminal cancer, so to earn some money to leave his family he begins cooking meth with one of his old students.  In practice, it’s a slow burn to some of the most intense scenes in television history as Bryan Cranston‘s character, Walter White, slips deeper and deeper into a world of darkness.

Bryan Cranston, Walter White, Heisenberg, Breaking Bad

Anyone who’s ever told me that they couldn’t get into the show, has always said the same thing: that the first season is too slow and they lost interest.  That’s actually exactly what happened with me the first time I watched it, but you have to push through, and when you do, you’ll realize all the groundwork the first episodes lay for what is really a five-season tele-novel.  As Walter drives himself harder and harder to make money, he falls in with a crazed gangster who beats his partner half to death and steals a batch of their product.  This confrontation between the gangster and the first appearance of Walt’s alter ego – Heisenberg – marks a tipping point in his ever shifting line in the sand between making money for his family and just making money by any means.  It’s also probably interested more people in chemistry than any ten textbooks have ever managed.

Complete Achievement/Trophy List for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (Xbox, Playstation – 2016)

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch tomorrow on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.  The follow-up to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution has been garnering critical praise and the launch trailer looks absolutely stunning, and I will in no way be playing it.  That’s not to discourage you.  Go, be, play!  If you have the ability to be stealthy.  Stealth is an integral part of the Deus Ex series and in video games, as in life, I have all the stealth of rabid elephant loaded with jingle bells.  This has made past attempts to play Deus Ex games….trying.  However, that is a ME issue not a GAME issue, so enjoy and check out the achievements, as always, courtesy of xboxachievements.com.
