Review – Aftermath

By guest columnist thenoshitmoviecritic.

The bulk of this film (originally titled 478) is based on a real-life mid-air collision between a Tu-154 passenger jet and a Boeing 747 cargo jet over Germany in 2002. Some elements of the story have been amplified for entertainment purposes, for example the location, the death toll, the sentencing, and the ending where the son seeks revenge.

Review: Terminator Genisys

Review: Terminator Genisys

This Fourth of July weekend you have many movie choices. You could take the family to enjoy Inside Out, or run from dinosaurs again with Jurassic World. Hell, get your girls or guys together and go watch Channing shake his ass once again in Magic Mike XXL. Or, what you should do, is go fight for the future once more with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator Genisys. The new trend is the reboot-quel, the awkward new movie creature that resembles the movies we’ve loved. Resurrecting characters, catchphrases, and plots to lure us in. This new iteration annihilates all previous story threads with a bit (or a bunch) of time travel, so it can weave its own stories, unencumbered, and adding younger, sexier stars. Some are good, most are really bad, but for Terminator Genisys, it is a great welcome back to the franchise, giving it new life, kicking ass, and blowing everything up along the way.
