THiNC. Movie Spotlight 151

Pretty excited about this week’s list of movies. Why? Mainly because of I.S.S. – I loved Gravity (probably in the minority here, but there is something about a closed box film, and a space station is the most closed box of all closed boxes.) and think I.S.S. is next level clever. But also, I’ve shifted to the films releasing AFTER the publication date, not before. Did I say that correctly? The films normally haven’t come out yet, but now, I’m waiting until they release in order to make the list more instantly relevant. Yes? No? Okay whatever… yes, I realize it’s stupid. Just read the list and go on about your day please. Thanks for that.

2024.01.19 I.S.S. – (THEATER)

I mean, technically, the earth has devoured itself, so who cares what happens on the space station. If it were me? I’d be like… look at what this sort of thinking got the planet. We now need to be above all of that (literally and figuratively…) But I doubt that would be a very exciting movie to watch. Still, this looks like a pretty exciting flick. Can’t wait.

2024.01.19 SUNRISE – (THEATER)

OK, this one is out in theaters and streaming sites right now. Looks like a dark creature feature? Horror? Thriller? Dunno. Love to hear what people think of it if you get a chance to watch it. Could be a coin flip as to whether it’s any good or not.


Futuristic – Science Fiction – dystopian sort of thing? “Izi and Benji live in a dystopian future London where all social housing has been eliminated. They fight to navigate the world as residents of the Kitchen, a community that refuses to abandon their home.” So far its Rotten Tomato ratings are doing a solid 85% critic rating. Which makes it really interesting to me. Available on Netflix.


Rom-com’em if you got’em.

If you’d like to get access to my upcoming movie calendar on Google docs, hit me up and we’ll see if we can arrange a trade of some kind. Also, want to see all my past THiNC. Spotlights, and the movies you might have missed? You can find that right here.
