Goosebumps – One of our favorite movies from the last year, Goosebumps is a movie that I think will be remembered just as dearly as Hocus Pocus. If you never got a chance to see this in theaters, make sure that you do now! Zach Cooper and his mother move from New York City to a small town in Delaware for a fresh start. Zach discovers that the father of Hannah, the cute girl next door, is none other than the famous author R.L. Stine. Thanks to R.L. Stine’s overactive imagination, the monsters in his books are real and the original manuscripts must be locked away or they will terrorize the world. When Zach, Hannah, and their new friend Champ accidentally release Slappy the evil ventriloquist doll, Slappy decides it’s time for the rest of the monsters to come out to play and take their revenge on R.L. Stine for their imprisonment in books, once and for all. If you’re a fan of the Goosebumps books, the movie is full of various references to Goosebumps characters and books as well as tons of jokes that will leave your nostalgia satisfied. Stars Jack Black, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush, Amy Ryan, Ryan Lee, Ken Marino, Jillian Bell and R.L. Stine. Rated PG.
Burnt – A once top chef, Adam Jones, (played by Bradley Cooper) that lost everything because of drugs and alcohol moves around the world trying to rebuild after losing a restaurant that previously had two Michelin stars. The cook gets a second shot at his dream when his former maître d’ (head of staff) hires him as a head chef for his restaurant. After some additional hires of underappreciated staff, Adam demands perfection as he seeks to go after three Michelin stars (the top honor a restaurant can get in quality). I laugh every time it’s brought up because yes it is related to the tire manufacturer and cars. Stars Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Alicia Vikander, Jamie Dornan, Lily James, Emma Thompson, and Daniel Bruhl. Rated R.
Doctor Who: Series 9 Part 2 – The second half of the 9th season of the restarted version of Doctor Who (meaning it’s always hard to tell where you are. Doctor Who continues the original Doctor Who season count as well as new season count with the added confusion that the UK calls them “series” instead of seasons like we do in the United States) where the Doctor faces his final adventure with his latest companion Clara. Not Rated.

Not Rated.

Two young boys dreaming of becoming famous generals but are foiled by a plot to overthrow the king. After one of them is killed, the other goes on a quest for revenge. Not Rated.

LEGO Marvel’s Avengers – The latest LEGO game, this one based off of Marvel’s Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. This is a little different from the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes in that it takes dialogue and plot directly from the movies but puts the usual LEGO spin on top of everything.
