Transformers: War for Cybertron



 Sure the 80s cartoon is always going to hold a special place in everyone's heart. especially the movie. Sure the live action films hold a special place in everyone's toilet(except Bumblebee) but the Transformers are Now, Then, Forever and their newest cartoon takes what worked in the animated film, the robots in disguise, and upgrades the animation and plots and gives us one of the best animated(kids) series in a while. Yes this is for kids but you would not be able to tell, it is mature and just has an overall good way to tell a simple story and sets up the rest of this trilogy of shows. Autobots vs Decepticons, all you need and this gives it.

Close Enough



 Already a tremendous year for animated series but Close Enough might be the funniest of the bunch. It takes the Adult Swim model(go figure it is produced by Cartoon Network) of doing 10-15 minute stories but combines two per episode, with the finale is one extended episode. For those wondering it is from the creators of Regular Show, so think that but with more adult content. It reminds me alot of Clerks the Animated Series, Home Movies, and Mission Hill.

An American Pickle


The idea of An American Pickle almost sounds like a 00s Sandler vehicle. luckily with Seth Rogen it has alot more heart than that. An absurd premise but it works, the clash of generations is perfect and is full of satire, on top of that the film is just really funny. It's light, it's quick, and hopefully being on HBO Max it doesn't fly under the radar.

The Wretched



The Wretched feels like an adult version of Goosebumps about body snatchers by way of witches with a Pennywise influence. Atmospheric, great tension, solid acting and awesome creature effects drive this film. I wish i could have seen this at the Drive In but if you didn't get a chance to and you have Hulu then check it out.

Capone



Capone was Josh Tranks sink or swim film, and it is easily his best yet his most cluttered. A Shinning version of a crime film with Tom Hardy chewing the scenery, it is as bonkers as it sounds. It is a boring yet compelling film, bonkers yet muddled. If Trank makes more films like this then i salute him, i just hope he gets a tighter script.

Becky



The eye for an eye match last week has nothing on a scene in Becky, no not Lynch but it does star Kurgan. This is a visceral survival film, Lulu Wilson steals the show as a girl going all Home Alone on a bunch of Nazis led by Kevin James. Great acting, clever set ups and tons of gore. This flick is doing well at Drive Ins and it is is a perfect drive in movie!
