Have you checked out the three Blade Runner 2049-related shorts that were released before the film? The animated one is especially sweet.

Awesome. I keep hearing great things about Butcher Bay. The HD port comes packaged with Dark Athena. I need to purchase the pair as it's fairly cheap on the 360.

I can't put my finger on exactly why, but I dig the Riddick character.

Can't say I didn't have a hunch that this was all a pile of hooey, but I also went through all the ranges of confusion, happiness, skepticism, unbridled hope, and now depression and a tad of hostile anger.

I can't tell. Where you hoping this IS or ISN'T a movie? The teaser looks kinda terrible.

Totally agree with the Prof and I would go as far as to say that Escape from Butcher Bay is one of the best "tie-in" games ever made.

Ant-Man. Rented it for 50 cents on my Birthday. I like the film but it's just a funnier Iron-Man 1.

Not as good as Robocop 1, but interestingly, it seems like any time the phrase "Robocop 2" was mentioned everything went to shit. The Robocop 2 prototypes either malfunctioned or committed suicide and the one that worked... well, I'm not gonna spoil anything.

I didn't think Ant Man was anything like Iron Man other than being an origins story. I laughed harder in Ant Man than Guardians.

I need to re-watch all the RoboCops.

Well guys, I have the 5 movies below on my cloud DVR. Any recommendations or "stay aways" in there? Considering it's free (well, doesn't cost me anything more than our normal monthly PS Vue subscription Mrs Jago gets either way) versus a $2-$5 digital rental... think I might blow through all 5 next week :lol:.

The Punisher (2004, R)
Homefront (2013, R)
Dracula Untold (2014, PG13)
Lucy (2014, R)
San Andreas (2015, PG13)

Almost certain I watched The Punisher around 2006 but only remember one scene.

Thoughts on those?

Lucy is a great looking movie but is just an okay movie.

Add Stakeland 2 on Netflix to my free watch list above!

Is that a reference to Scar Jo or the cinematography? :lol:

Okay... here we go :roll:

Hitman: Agent 47

I forgot I watched this. No joke... I literally forgot. That sums up this movie! If you see it on a movie channel give it a go for free at your own risk, but don't spend money on it, even a cheap digital rental.

Honestly, the first Hitman movie surprised me and is a guilty pleasure of mine. Timothy
Olyphant added a bit of swagger to the Agent 47 character. This actor (yes, too lazy to look up his name after) plays 47 much colder. This is more in line with the video game canon, but sure makes for a boring character to watch for 90 minutes.

This time around they explore the origins of the agent program a bit more. That's cool I guess. Watch this one only if you're a dedicated fan of the games or desperately looking for a mindless action film. The first movie is worth watching in my opinion, but steer clear of the sequel.

2018 Movies Watched:
1. Hitman: Agent 47
2. Riddick (2013)*
3. Real Steel
4. Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Protocol

* Indicates a re-watch
