What’s On The Grill? July 5th – July 11th

Welcome Exiles to this week’s  What’s On The Grill?, the weekly mini-review corner where we get to blast about whatever we’ve caught recently, feasted on with our eyes as some say.

This week on the grill: Some insect super hero fun, wacky dance battles in a post apocalyptic future, McConaughey’s creative use of fried chicken, and another post apocalyptic future with bad mullets and sword play. Enjoy!

 

Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)

“As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.”

3.75/5- This was fun. I enjoyed the scaled back nature of the impending doom not being the takeover or the end of the world at stake. Following up Infinity War’s heaviness, this was a lighthearted heist type follow up. The end credit scene was stellar though. Also I hate Michael Pena.


The FP (2011)

“The FP is a movie starring Jason Trost, Lee Valmassy, and Art Hsu. In a post apocalyptic future, two rival gangs fight for control of Frazier Park by playing “Beat Beat Revelation”, a deadly version of Dance, Dance, Revolution(TM).”

2.5/5- I feel mislead, I thought there would be more dancing. I couldn’t stand the way they talked. Have to give it credit where it’s due because it looks really good and I like the costume design.


Killer Joe (2011)

“When a debt puts a young man’s life in danger, he turns to putting a hit out on his evil mother in order to collect the insurance.”

3.25/5- There is really not much to say about this except that McConaughey absolutely killed it and I will never look at fried chicken the same way again…


Steel Dawn (1987)

“In a post-apocalyptic world, a warrior wandering through the desert comes upon a group of settlers who are being menaced by a murderous gang that is after the water they control.”

2.5/5- Oh just your original 80’s post apocalyptic desert wasteland movie where a loner who is amazing at fighting helps the good guys protect their most important resource from the bad guy. This actually starts off pretty decent and then skids off into boring territory pretty quick with really campy acting but one its saving graces is Patrick Swayze’s majestic mullet and fancy sword play.
