The Movie Thread Reloaded

Thornhammer:
Dave Made a Maze was surprisingly entertaining.

Dude makes a cardboard maze in his living room while the girlfriend is away. It is bigger on the inside than the outside, girlfriend and companions go into the maze to help rescue Dave and become trapped.

Tone is fairly light and goofy, the cardboard maze/labyrinth (they argue the semantics during the film) is really fucking cool, and if you like The Venture Brothers it has James Urbaniak.

Lurkndog:
Finally got around to watching Wrath of Man with Jason Statham. It's up on Amazon Prime Video at the moment.

It's a solid and worthwhile revenge flick, helmed by Guy Ritchie. Top dollar production values, and an excellent supporting cast including Josh Harnett and Scott Eastwood.

Statham plays his usual Jason Statham character. In this one, he's working undercover as an armored car security guard, but he's clearly a much higher-level operative than that. The movie takes its time unwrapping the layers of what's going on, and the final reel pays off with some excellent tension and visuals.

This is one I'll watch more than once.

I really liked the old Japanese/American sci-fi movie Latitude Zero, especially because it has Cesar Romero in it as the villain.

But what discovered today was that the movie was based on an old Radio serial from the 40s called... Latitude Zero! Some of the oddities of the movie make more sense when viewed as a serial adaption.

I also liked in the movie that contrary to the usual. MacKinzie's sub the Alpha is not the strongest and their only recourse when faced by Malak's Black Shark sub is to run away because they are out-gunned. And it can not be coincidence that Malak's moreau-esque minions are... Bat Men...  8)

And BOOM! Canceled after one season. Gosh, who would have thought Resident Evil fans didn't want to watch teen high school girl drama?

The Japanese fanbase in particular was -brutal-. They were not impressed at all.
