Movie Review Monday 

Monsters (2010) - After an exploratory NASA probe returns and crashes in northern Mexico, new life forms began to appear, resulting in half of that country being quarantined as an infected zone. The story follows a photojournalist as he escorts his employer’s daughter back to the U.S from Mexico. The film certainly had a low budget feel at times, and certain parts of the film could have been done better. But overall, the filmmaker did a remarkable job, given the relatively low production budget. It was an enjoyable film that for much of the time effectively used the creatures as a backdrop to the human story at the forefront. And the film ultimately does a decent job of challenging our notions of what we regard as monsters. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

I was really impressed with this. A very small movie but it really worked well. No A listers, no huge spfx budget.

Movie Review Monday 

Halo: Nightfall (2014) - Based in the Halo universe, this film follows agents from the Office of Naval Intelligence as they team up with local guard troops on a colonial planet to investigate a biological terrorist attack. This live-action film was produced by Ridley Scott and originally aired as a five-part streaming web series. The acting was good, and the human interplay was interesting enough. But the visual effects were a bit disappointing (especially when compared with what was done for “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn”). Additionally, the pace of the story seemed to stall at points. Still, Mike Colter gave a strong performance as lead character Agent Locke. And for fans of the video game series, the film provided a nice origin story for that character. I'd give it a 6 out of 10.

Movie Review Monday 

Godzilla (2014) - Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche make appearances in this reboot of the classic creature feature. The plot had a good pace, the storyline was nicely crafted, and the visual effects were spectacular. And aside from the two scientist side characters who couldn’t seem to register any expression beyond a sort of gloomy dread, the acting was also decent. A beefed up Aaron Taylor Johnson as the lead character wasn’t bad on the eyes, either. If you like monster mayhem, you’ll likely enjoy this film. Have some popcorn ready. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

Today the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the cases that could put an end to marriage discrimination for same-sex couples nationwide. The Court's decision is expected by the end of June. Crossing fingers for marriage equality. ^_^

#lovemustwin
When the Supreme Court assumes the bench today to hear historic oral arguments on same-sex marriage, only a few hundred lucky souls will be able to watch. Herewith, then, a non-viewers' guide.

"Gay" is a red herring... The question will be, do people have the same rights or can states define marriage to exclude a union...

Next, it will be can three (or more) people be married in one,marriage?

Wait for it...
