IT IS RARE FOR ME TO SEE A MOVIE WHEN IT’S STILL IN THEATERS BUT THANKS TO WARNER BROS I WAS ABLE TO CATCH UP ON THOSE I MISSED!

Part 11 talked about Dune, Matrix: Resurrections, The Batman, Dog and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore. We are back for Part 12 to discuss Elvis, DC League of Super Pets, The Lost Boys and Poltergeist.
Personally I’ve never been a fan of Elvis’ movies or music but many in both sides of my family were. The production value of this film is beyond anything I ever expected. They managed to take a person I never liked and keep me glued to the screen. The cast was fantastic from start to finish. Having never known anything about his personal story other than his death it makes me wonder how accurate was the film? Would I watch this film again? Not likely. Did I enjoy it? I did, surprisingly, I did.
Growing up I hated scary movies and this was one I avoided because it scared the hell out of friends I considered braver than myself. This is the 4k release of that same classic film and now that I’ve developed an appreciation for the horror genre I can’t think of a better time to watch it. Having watched it finally I didn’t find it particularly frightening but was impressed the quality of the effects for when this film was first produced. The finale was really impressive to say the least and I enjoyed the movie overall.
The Lost Boys
This is the cult classic film all about vampires in a small town. I had seen it only once previously and thought it wasn’t bad but watching it again in 4k it was much better than I remembered. Now it’s time to get my wife to watch it.
DC League of Super Pets
This family film follows Krypto as he deals with Superman’s falling in love and what it means as the pet of the Man of Steel. The animation was top notch and the film was great fun.
