Howdy folks! It’s The Kendog here back from a month long absence to try and pull this thing together. A rather serious health scare involving my wife kept me on the shelf for obvious reasons. Thankfully, she is doing well and on her way to a full recovery and I am now trying to figure out a schedule to get thing s back on track! Continue reading
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog with a look at the new Tomb Raider Movie!
Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft in “Tomb Raider”
Video game movies have been really hard to do well. Even the most successful have their share of faults. “Mortal Kombat” and Angelina Jolie’s Tomb Raider movies are often considered high points of the sub-genre but the bar has admittedly been set fairly low. Still, with the video games themselves becoming more and more cinematic in nature, you have to figure somebody in Hollywood’s gonna get it right eventually. With that in mind, this new Tomb Raider reboot is not perfect but it has a lean pace, a more than serviceable origin story, and strong performances from star Alicia Vikander and Walton Goggins.

The Academy Awards Air This Sunday, March 4th
In the interest of full transparency, I generally suck at this despite my knowledge and love of the movies. It’s probably because there’s a political element at play here that has very little to do with the actual quality of a film. That doesn’t stop it from being any less fun to try and figure out what the hell the Academy is going to do when it comes to Oscar night. So without further ado let’s jump right in to the deep end of the pool and figure out the big winners from this coming Sunday’s biggest awards show!

Rachel McAdams Gets Her Gun On In “Game Night”
Sometimes very good films have the unfortunate task of following a phenomenon. “Black Panther” is breaking records and is rapidly becoming the cinematic story of the year, but it’s far from the only good movie out there! This week there are two outstanding new films that deserve to be seen on the big screen and, unfortunately, will have plenty of seats available as “Panther” continues to dominate in its second week. If you want something different, I recommend “Game Night” and “Annihilation” for your viewing pleasure.
