Infinite (2021)
My quick rating - 6,4/10. Don't be bothered by the hate. I think people got pissed that Paramount+ saw "F9" on the calendar and decided to one-up that movie with insanely ridiculous CGI action scenes. So the wanna be critics shit on this. Truth is, this movie has plenty of what I just mentioned to the point of plenty of eye rolling, but people also decide to miss a highly stylized story going on in this one. Tackling the concept of resurrection into a summer flick is not going to be an easy sell but Antoine Fuqua gave it his best shot and somewhat succeeded. Mark Wahlberg plays a schizophrenic guy who is troubled by his incredible intelligence of things he shouldn't know and feelings of dreams that seem to be more like memories. Hence the resurrection story here, he is a part of a society of other people that keep returning back to life called the Infinite. But of course there is an evil side of these immortal like people led by a brilliantly played Chiwetel Ejiofor (when is he not). So in a fight to save all of the infinite good guys, and consequentially the entire planet, Wahlburg must remember his past lives to unlock a secret to save everyone. The action is top notch starting off with an intense car chase scene and regardless of some of it being done on a high end computer, it gave you little room to take a break and grab the popcorn. But this is exactly the definition of a popcorn flick. Wall to wall action with a surprisingly good plot that does find itself a bit confused at times but overall is a nice showing for the new streamer in town. #scifi
Defiance (1980)
My quick rating - 5,4/10. Surely doesn't capture the "gang" culture from the 70s and 80s that "The Warriors" captured to a tee, but this one is still a decent watch. Jan-Michael Vincent stars as an out of work seaman who takes up temporary residence on the lower East Side of NYC. For those that have never seen what the city used to look like before it got cleaned up and modernized, this might be a big surprise to you. Anyway, his character crosses paths with the local gang that runs the neighborhood and the obvious ensues. Instead of being some quiet, bad ass killing machine as many of these movies tend to throw at you, we instead just have an everyday guy who just wants to keep to himself. Until he is pushed to far that is. The movie itself does take a more emotional approach to what is happening on the streets, and what the locals will need to do to take back their more harmonious way of life. For reference I checked a few reviews and this is a real love or hate movie. I strangely sit in the middle since I see the good but as I watched, I felt the bad. Too often scenes are wasted on things that don't seem to matter and other scenes that needed more push to get the cast going and united tend to be skipped over. Still, there were a few of these movies released around this time, and this was my first viewing of this one. I would say for the period, it is one of the better ones. BTW, anyone old enough will be interested to see Art Carney in any other role aside from Honeymooners re-runs as "NORTON" #action

Well, typically this area was left for months at a time and not updated. Now I am doing my best to get this updated weekly with the movies I have watched and gave a quick rating and maybe a sentence or two about it as well. Sometimes a full review if I don't get to putting it above.  Check back often.
