A Plesant Find
The Survivalist is a British post-apocalyptic film that focuses on a lack of food instead of zombies. This movie is not going to be for everyone. The pacing is slow and deliberate in parts and there is many times where The Survivalist is missing dialogue. However, there is a method to all of this. Bleak, intense, scary and certainly not for the average movie goer, The Survivalist is worth the price of admission.

Oh, what would the MCU be if Norton hadn't pissed everyone off and gotten himself fired? Its an interesting question, one we will never know the answer to. One thing we do know is that The Incredible Hulk is the best film of the MCU origin stories.

I don't know what all the naysayers are harping about. Captain Marvel keeps the MCU streak going as upper tier popcorn entertainment. Brie Larsen does a great job at showing she can kick tail with the best of the boys and Sam L. is a G as always. I feel its some kind of sexist even to compare it to Wonder Woman because they have nothing in common outside of being comic based and having female protagonists but if I have to, then I'll say Captain Marvel is easily the superior of the two. If you aren't a right wing jerkwad that can't get his head out of his ass and you like a good action film, then you should have a great time here. My gripes were small and center mostly on the climax and how it was executed, but they are small issues.

Whew! Talk about a tale of two movies! The first half of Lake Bodom is an absolute disaster. We follow the four main characters, four "teens", two male and two female as they journey to an isolated lake for different reasons. The girls Ida and Nora think they are going to a party. One of the guys Elias wants to hook up with Ida and the other Atte has a grand master plan to reconstruct a decades old unsolved murder near the lake in an effort to solve the mystery. This sounds solid on paper, but the execution is abhorrent. There are so many holes in the way its laid out that throughout the first half, I felt this was nearing terrible territory. But there is a moment in the middle somewhere that changes the rules and allows a reset button to be hit after which Lake Bodom becomes interesting. It doesn't mean the second half is stellar, it just means the film doesn't finish as a conversation placeholder in a worst ever discussion. So take that how you will.
