Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Digital Movie Review – stream the moviel with Roku + Disney Movies Anywhere

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

I saw Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Lucasfilm) for the second time recently. The first time was at the theater and the second time was via Disney Movies Anywhere and Roku. I’m a big Star Wars fan and I really enjoyed the sci-fi film. Unlike the other Star Wars movies I’ve seen, Rogue One is a standalone story. Remember the very first Star Wars film (A New Hope)? In the story, Luke destroys the Death Star thanks to plans stolen by the rebels. Rogue One is about the rebels who stole the plans that revealed the weakness in the Death Star. Note: I received a movie kit for reviewing the film on my blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

Thor: The Dark World – an unexpected sci-fi story about evil elves

Thor: The Dark World

My son and I saw an early screening of Thor: The Dark World last Monday. We loved it, but I was surprised the film was more of a science fiction story than a superhero story. Don’t worry, there’s plenty of ass kicking by Thor and other Asgardians. But there’s also space ships and worm holes, which I didn’t expect. Thor: The Dark World (Marvel Studios) opens in theaters today. The 112-minute movie is rated PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, and some suggestive content.

Five Things About the Ender's Game Movie

My son and I saw an early screening of Ender’s Game. The movie is based on a book (by Orson Scott Card) with the same name. I have not read the book, but my ten-year son has. We both enjoyed the sci-fi action film, but my son said they changed the ending. Ender’s Game (Summit Entertainment) opens in theaters today.

Seven Super Things You Should Know About the Man of Steel Movie

Man of Steel | Superman (Warner Bros. Pictures)

My son and I saw an advance screening of Man of Steel earlier in the week. It’s not a perfect film, but we loved it. Man of Steel is a reboot of the Superman series. Clark Kent is still a baby that crash landed on Earth from the planet Krypton. But in the reboot, Clark Kent isn’t the golly gee whiz klutz that we are use to seeing. He’s a reflective person that is trying to act like everyone else even though he’s burning inside to save everyone he can. A lot of the Superman storyline has been changed, but it’s refreshing to see a different take on Superman. Man of Steel (Warner Bros. Pictures) opens today in theaters everywhere on Earth and in the Phantom Zone. Read on to find out about the seven things you should know about the new Superman movie.

My oldest son and I saw an early screening of Oblivion in IMAX. The film is a sci-fi story starring Tom Cruise (Jack Harper), Olga Kurylenko (Julia) and Andrea Riseborough (Victoria). The story takes place in the future after decades of war with aliens called Scavs. Jack, Julia and Andrea are a few of the remaining humans left on a post-apocalyptic Earth. My son and I love the movie. The story is excellent and the special effects are dazzling. Oblivion (Universal Pictures) opens in theaters on Friday. Continue reading for the full review.
