Kung Fury Movie

Kung Fury (David Sandberg) Unrated [31 min] – In 1985, Kung Fury, the toughest martial artist cop in Miami, goes back in time to kill the worst criminal of all time – kung fuhrer Hitler. Starring David Sandberg, Jorma Taccone, and Steven Chew

Everything about David Sandberg’s crowdfunded project is simply magical. The delightful insanity of Kung Fury makes this project worth every penny donated. Tremendous love and support was put into the production of this fantastical ode to martial arts and police action films of the ’80s. Kung Fury finds the perfect combo of the two, delivering fun action, the cheesiest one-liners, and an awesome ’80s synth score.

Chasing Life Season 2

Chasing Life Season 2 (Susanna Fogel, Joni Lefkowitz, and Ricardo Álvarez Canales) [42 min] – Follows a young woman’s life after she is diagnosed with cancer. Starring Italia Ricci, Mary Page Keller, Richard Brancatisano, Haley Ramm, Aisha Dee, Scott Michael Foster, Rebecca Schull, Jessica Meraz, and Steven Weber

Although I haven’t indulged in the second season of Chasing Life, I rather enjoyed the first. All of the characters are pretty well written, strong, and well-acted by a group of young, talented actors. This is the final season since ABC Family pulled the plug earlier this year. From what I’ve been told, they do leave the series nicely wrapped up for those like myself who desire closure.

August: Osage County Meryl Streep

August: Osage County (John Wells) A look at the lives of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose paths have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Oklahoma house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. Starring Meryl Streep, Dermot Mulroney, Julia Roberts, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, Sam Shepard,  Julianne Nicholson,  Margo Martindale, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Chris Cooper

For me, August: Osage County is a solid movie that only needs to be seen once. The performances from the spectacularly cast bunch are a treat as they each have their own moment to shine, especially Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep of course. But the rest of the family involved all have their own place and purpose. It’s a well-rounded film that doesn’t completely wow, but overall it’s not a bad sit if
