Can't Stop the Movies

For the week of 5/24/2017 on Can’t Stop the Movies

I was browsing Amazon earlier today and, wouldn't you know it, Logan is available to rent.  So, screw it, we're gonna have an action week here at Can't Stop the Movies.  Starting off is Hugh Jackman's supposed final ride in James Mangold's Logan.  We'll take a detour into the jungle for a different kind of wild man with The Legend of Tarzan.  The other side of the X-universe centers the week in X-Men: Apocalypse.  Finally, as I'm still one of the few folks on earth willing to defend Star Trek Into Darkness, I figured it's time to look at Star Trek Beyond.

Remember, no one can stop the movies.

Lighter in tone than NieR Automata, if no less weighty in implication, The Sexy Brutale features on this week's Pixels In Praxis.  I'm still figuring out my approach to video game reviews so I'm going to try and push myself to do at least one a week moving forward.

Going back to a grab-bag of different films for the week of 5/17/2017.  First up, Richard Linklater's follow-up to Boyhood and spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused in Everybody Wants Some.  Following that will be the first-person perspective action experiment Hardcore Henry.  Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey join each other for one of the weirder historical pairings in Elvis & Nixon.  Finally, we'll take a trip around the dysfunctional neighborhood of Neighbors 2.

Remember, no one can stop the movies.

You're reading it here folks - as a way to keep pushing myself and stop dilly-dallying on solo pieces.  The first proper Can't Stop the Movies video game review as part of Pixels in Praxis will be posted on Sunday.  I don't want to tip my hand too early, but the first game up on the slate is my probable 2017 game of the year - NieR: Automata.


For the week of 5/10/2017 on Can’t Stop the Movies

Broadening the scope of reviews for the week with an array of genre film-making.  First up, Split, and the hopes M. Night Shyamalan continues his upward swing that started with The Visit in 2015.  Then, I'm going to see what the hub-bub is all about with Fede Álvarez's Don't Breathe, his first film since his remake of Evil Dead in 2013.  As the week closes I'll finally be able to watch David Ayer's Suicide Squad, and John Singleton's remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Remember, no one can stop the movies.


For the week of 5/2/2017 on Can’t Stop the Movies

The digital stores have updated, that means it's time to finish reviews of the Best Picture nominees from 2016.  I'll be starting off with Damien Chazelle's La La Land, his first film since the excellent Whiplash from 2014.  The Taylor Sheridan-penned Hell or High Water comes next.  The week will close off on two morally compromised artists, Mel Gibson directing Hacksaw Ridge, and Casey Affleck in Manchester by the Sea.

I'm also rebranding the Why Video Games section as Pixels in Praxis with an explanation piece and article on Hollow Knight with Quintus.

Remember, no one can stop the movies.


For the week of 4/25/2017 on Can’t Stop the Movies

The dramatic rollout of 2016 continues onward this week.  I'll be reviewing the Natalie Portman biopic Jackie, the behind-the-scenes work of the black women for the United States space program in Hidden Figures, Hailee Steinfeld's coming-of-age dramedy The Edge of Seventeen, and Fences - which won Viola Davis her long-deserved Oscar.
