Ocean’s 8 movie review

So as we introduce our new logo and Podcast name together.  Alicia and I go out to see the female version of Ocean's 11.  Called Ocean's 8.  Led by Sandra Bullock, we watch this new movie with skepticism and hope that possibly a new franchise will emerge with these ladies leading the way.  With hopefully a female director next time.

Five years, eight months, 12 days and counting -- that's how long Debbie Ocean has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it's going to take -- a team of the best people in the field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller. Together, they recruit a crew of specialists, including jeweler Amita, street con Constance, suburban mom Tammy, hacker Nine Ball, and fashion designer Rose. Their target -- a necklace that's worth more than $150 million.

Being a Marvel fan, and reading some of the later versions of the Marvel comics.  I ran into the Alias series that jumped into realistic problems people go through but just happen to be super powered individuals.   The Alias series centers on the emotionally battered Jessica Jones which Netflix saw some value to make it a series. Here is my take on season 1 and 2 and a little of the Defenders series.

This Netflix original chronicles the life of one of the darker Marvel characters, the mysterious Jessica Jones. When a tragedy puts an end to her short-lived career as a superhero, Jessica settles in New York City and opens her own detective agency, called Alias Investigations, which seems to be called into cases involving people who have special abilities. Suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome, Jessica wants to do good, but her primary interest isn't in saving the world, it's saving her apartment and getting through each day. Based on a graphic novel intended for adults, this is not a superhero story for the kids

Sean and I sit down to review one of BK's most oddest group.  The Flatbush Zombies.not every hearing from this group before.  I was pleasantly surprise to hear their 19 track release with a few features that went very well with this release

So first I have to say.  OMG!!! Here's our movie review with all the spoilers and heavy breathing while we explain our experience with seeing the new Avengers saga.  So be prepared cause I reference the Comic series Infinity Gauntlet a lot but try to stay on track with the current movie.  Whew.  This was such an emotionally draining action drama.

Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet -- the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.

Sean and I sit down and review the legendary DJ premier and Royce da 59 with their 2nd release from their collaboration PRhyme.  To me its about the production and giving props to Royce da 59 for putting out a stable release.

Our part two session of REPO goes into the education system with teachers, The ignorance of the EPA secretary with his lavish MC sound booth purchases.  We swing back to the Michael Cohen raid and Mueller's involvement once again with the white house.

Molly’s Game

The true story of Molly Bloom, a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led people to believe.

The Post

For our round of Oscar nominated fits for this year.  We stop and go see The Post directed by Steven Spielberg.  You may or may not know but we know what to expect from a vanilla based, safe directing movie Spielberg always makes.  But based on the conditions of today we looked forward to seeing a nonfictional adaptation.

The Post is a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers - and their very freedom - to help bring long-buried truths to light
