HBO’s new thriller, Westworld, is halfway through its first season. Going into it I thought I knew what to expect, but the show has turned into something completely different. The show is not so much an action-thriller as much as it’s a mystery/suspense thriller. This show was supposed to be about some badass cowboy-robots revolting against human, but Instead, Westworld has forced me to think, ponder, and analyze everything that’s going on. This isn’t a bad thing, just not what I was expecting.
So this one came out of nowhere (for me at least). Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds are both in a movie. For those who need more, the description according to IMDB is:
The six-member crew of the International Space Station is on the cutting edge of one of the most important discoveries in human history: the first evidence of extraterrestrial life on Mars. As the crew begins to conduct research, their methods end up having unintended consequences and the life form proves more intelligent than anyone ever expected.
So we’ve all seen this story one way or another before but maybe the pairing of Gyllenhaal and Reynolds, along with Rebecca Ferguson, will elevate it above it’s unoriginal story. Both trailers are similar with the international version offering slightly more. Life releases May 26th, 2017.

Now only one question remains, where they do go from here? This episode begins to show us this direction and also reintroduce us to two remaining main characters who we haven’t seen since last season’s finale in Carol and Morgan.

What does Will have to do with any of it? What’s Harry’s stake in all of this? Why is he so interested in Alex and Ryan? What will be the moments that finally connects both timelines? Those are just some of the questions that have not yet been answered so far but this episode starts to cover these.

I’m in the Netflix business now. I can’t believe I haven’t done this yet but there’s a first time for everything. Shout out to Ethan Brundeen for pointing out the obvious to me. Here’s what’s coming and leaving Netflix in Canada and the U.S. in November.
Since I’ve started this site, I’ve written a lot of reviews. In case you missed some of my earlier ones, I would like to share an older review of “Finding Nemo” which originally appeared here.

One of the most anticipated movies this year was Suicide Squad. You can read my review here. While the movie was still successful at the box office, placing in the top 10 so far this year, it was still a mixed amongst critics and the general public. Taking the lead from an earlier DC movie, Batman v Superman, an extended cut is being released for home video, offering the standard bonus features along with footage not seen in theatres. While Batman v Superman’s convoluted story may have benefited from the extra scenes (I haven’t seen it), whether the extended cut will do the same for Suicide Squad remains to be seen. Suicide Squad will be released on Digital HD November 15,2016 and on Blu-ray and DVD on December 13,2016.
