About two months ago, Sony released their first look at their last-ditched effort at Marvel movies. The trailer for their Venom movie was…lackluster at best. I myself wasn’t even impressed and considering Tom Hardy is starring in it, I wanted to be more excited than I was. Sony’s take on the well-known anti-hero is running in association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although Tom Holland will not be appearing as Spider-Man, which seems strange to a lot of fans.

After two long years, HBO’s mind spinning Westworld returned for a second season. Not to be outdone by its predecessor, season two introduces the audience to even more questions and storylines. Unlike the first season, we know that the show operates in a series of different timelines, but that doesn’t make it any easier to keep up! Though, I believe some of the fun is in knowing that time isn’t linear. Don’t get too caught up in trying to figure everything out, I have a feeling the threads are only going to unravel even further as the episodes go.

Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool sequel could have premiered in theaters without any sort of promotion and I still would be there opening night to view it. Luckily, so far, we have had several teasers and footage to keep us all sated, so many that I just put three different hyperlinks in this paragraph.

The Sci-Fi genre is alive and well. 21 days after Netflix released Altered Carbon, the streaming service offered another neo-noir, cyberpunk original featuring a hot Swede as the lead. Alexander Skarsgard is the main character in this Duncan Jones film, about a mute bartender who lost his voice due to an accident when he was little. Coming from an Amish family, “Leo” was not able to get the surgery he needed to repair his vocal cords and as a result, lost his ability to speak. Now an adult, he bartends and carves wood and the movie really begins when he realizes his girlfriend has vanished without a trace.

I love independent movies. They’re extremely underrated and deserve more recognition. One film I’ve watched recently and really enjoyed was 2015’s Jackie & Ryan. Starring Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes, this romantic drama was filmed entirely in Utah and only took twenty days to shoot. While that sounds like it may not be enough time to put together a decent flick, I wouldn’t rule this one out. It’s a very enjoyable and feel-good movie that’s worth your time.
