Highlight of the week is Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, narrated by the great Neil Degrasse Tyson. With amazing visuals, and great pacing, this mini-series was perfect “documentary” on our cosmos, from the tiniest cells to the greatest galaxies. Told in a very in-depth, yet simple fashion, this show is great not only for adults, but for a younger crowd as well.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit comes out, starring Chris Pine and Kevin Costner. I don’t mind Pine, and I thought he was great in the Star Trek films, but I’m not sure how good this movie actually is. Reviews were not all that special either.
Liam Neeson comes around in another “badass” film; this time also starring Julian Moore, in Non-Stop. I guess I’m not into these so called “action” flicks, though I do love Liam Neeson. Just think action movies are more interesting when bast on a more fictional story, rather a situation where one can be a badass. That’s just me though… if you love those type of movies, this definitely might be up your alley.
Random one for the week is Bushido Man: Seven Deadly Battles. I have no idea what this is about, so who knows. Definitely a rip-off/reference to Seven Samurai though. Is “seven” an important number to the Japanese philosophy? Greece has 3 as a big number and for one reason or another, I noticed 9 is big in the US of A.
In the TV works, some show called Resurrection gets its season 1 released, as does Ray Donovan, starring Live Schrieber, which had amazing reviews and should be a great show to catch if you missed it on tv.
That’s it for the week.
