Europa Report: Movie Man Jackson

“Who are we? Why are we here? Where do we come from? And, are we alone?” The question may get old, but it will always be asked (albeit worded differently): Is there life on other planets? Perhaps on Jupiter, there may be. In the Europa Report, six astronauts are brought together to investigate one of Jupiter’s moons known as […]

Chappie: Movie Man Jackson

“How was I supposed to know that you would become you?” The mind is, or can be, the strongest muscle in one’s body. It is also the most impressionable muscle as well.

Elysium: Movie Man Jackson

“We’re not gonna f*****g dying here.” Is 2154 so much different than 2015? Los Angeles (and what can be assumed the whole Earth) in the year 2154 is no man’s land.

Edge of Tomorrow: Movie Man Jackson

  “There is no courage without fear.” War is unforgiving. Comprised of many battles and confrontations, it fatigues everyone involved both physically and maybe even more so mentally. Now multiply that mental fatigue by 100, and repeat it daily in the exact same fashion. The result is Edge of Tomorrow. In this film, malevolent alien […]

Her: Movie Man Jackson

“Sometimes I think I have felt everything I’m ever gonna feel.” We’ve seen this central theme before of the relationship of technology to humans, but never quite like this. Spike Jonze’s Her centers around a introverted, soon-to-be divorced man by the name of Theodore Twombly who has become quite lonely and reticent in his separation […]
