Steve’s Take

If there is one thing Steve can’t stand it’s musicals. Everyone told me this is not your typical music. Have you guys seen the first scene of La La Land? I was cursing people out in my head thinking they lied to me. Thankfully for them, the rest of the film is much better. If you haven’t seen La La Land, now is the time to do it.

Underworld: Blood Wars

The next installment in the blockbuster franchise, UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS follows Vampire death dealer, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (Theo James) and his father Thomas (Charles Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Scott’s Take

Is Blood Wars the final nail in the Underworld coffin? Enough already.

Steve’s Take

No, thank you.

The Girl With All the Gifts

The near future humanity has been all but destroyed by a mutated fungal disease that eradicates free will and turns its victims into flesh-eating “hungries”. Only a small group of children seem immune to its effects. At an army base in rural England, this group of unique children are being studied, subjected to cruel experiments by biologist Dr. Caldwell. Despite having been infected with the zombie pathogen that has decimated the world, these children retain normal thoughts and emotions. And while still being subject to the craving for human flesh that marks the disease these second-generation “hungries” are able to think and feel making them a vital resource in the search for a cure. The children attend school lessons daily, guarded by the ever watchful Sergeant Parks. But one little girl, Melanie, stands out from the rest. Melanie is special. She excels in the classroom, is inquisitive, imaginative and loves her favourite teacher Miss Justineau. When the base falls, Melanie escapes along with Miss Justineau, Sergeant Parks and Dr. Caldwell. Against the backdrop of a blighted Britain, Melanie must discover what she is and ultimately decide both her own future and that of the human race.

Scott’s Take

I love zombie movies and finally we have what looks to be an original zombie movie concept. This is the movie I will be watching first this week.

Steve’s Take

I’m down for watching this one. This week could be a challenge, but I might just be able to make it work.

Next Week

La La Land is my overwhelming pick of the week. Next week we have A Dog’s Purpose, Gold, The Red Turtle, I Am Not Your Negro, and The Autopsy of Jane Doe. Have a great week everyone.
