The Mitchells vs The Machines | Average Guy Movie Review

Katie Mitchell (Abbi Jacobson) is off to college, and she can't wait to be free from her quirky family. But her dad Rick (Danny McBride), mum Linda (Maya Rudolph), and brother Aaron (Mike Rianda) aren't quite so keen to see her go. So when an accident the night before her departure causes tension, Rick decides to cancel Katie's flight so the family can drive her across country in a last ditch effort to save the family bond. Unfortunately for the Mitchells, a tech mogul accidentally starts the robot apocalypse, and this dysfunctional family becomes humanity's last hope for salvation. Have you ever wondered what your smartphone truly thinks of you? Or your tablet, smart TV, computer, or even your Roomba for that matter. Either way, this could be the movie for you. The Mitchells vs The Machines - besides being a very long title - is a hilarious, action-packed, and oddly relatable sci-fi adventure movie. Think of it as like Judgement Day, just a little sleeker, and with kil

PlayStation 5 Unveiled

Sony has unveiled the much anticipated PlayStation 5, which included a showcase of an impressive list of games and several game developers expressing their excitement to show us what they've been working on. If you missed it, or simply want to watch it again, check it out below. The show began with a look back at the history of the PlayStation, followed by a recap of something a little more recent... GTA V. Yes the game that has already spanned two consoles will soon be available on a third. GTA Online will be available free to all PS5 owners, provided they have PlayStation Plus of course. And to sweeten the deal everyone who owns GTA V on the PS4 will get $1 million in GTA cash every month until PS5 GTA V launches in 2021. After a welcome message from President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, in which he was keen to point out Sony's good relationship with Rockstar, we got into something a little more new. Ryan described the PS5 as the "biggest generat

Uncharted: Drake's Companion

With the Tomb Raider reboot in full swing and Indiana Jones 5 set for a 2019 release, it seems that Sony is finally getting somewhere with the long delayed Uncharted movie. Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, The Internship, Real Steel) has been attached to direct and Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, Smokin' Aces) shared a photo in January indicating he had completed a draft of the script. Last week it was announced that Tom Holland had been cast as Nathan 'Nate' Drake. Holland will play a young version of the character in a story inspired by that of the third game, in which Nate meets his friend and mentor; Victor 'Sully' Sullivan. But who will they get to play the smooth, moustachioed treasure hunter? Holland apparently would like to see Jake Gyllenhaal or Chris Pratt get the job, what do you think? I suppose it depends on what sort of tone the movie will take. The director, Shawn Levy is known more for comedy than anything else. Can we expect a light-hearted, Na

Ghostbusters Reloaded

This week Movie Web released cast photos of the new Ghostbusters movie. Images courtesy of Google Images Please leave classic movies alone!!! Now I'm not saying the movie won't be any good. Paul Feig's last couple of films; Spy and the Heat are quite good and successful. But if he can come up with successful, original material, why remake a classic? Granted, if Feig doesn't Sony will get someone else and not necessarily someone as good. Remakes are real money makers. Even with a new script you haven't had to develop and idea and you already have an established fan base who will go and see it. So the movie will generate a new fan base as well as drawing in fans of the original. The new fans will probably also want to see the originals which means more sales and rentals on top of the new films profits. Just because a movie makes money, doesn't make it a good movie! That being said, Feig is sticking to his usual formula: Melissa McCarthy a
