American Gods Season 1 – The great Ian McShane is Mr. Wednesday, a mysterious figure who recruits a guy named Shadow Moon to help him in the upcoming battle between the old Gods and some fresh New Gods. Also stars Crispin Glover as Mr. World. Based on the cool writings of Neil Gaimen.
A Bag of Marbles – Heart-wrenching tale of two young Jewish brothers fleeing the Nazis in occupied France. As one person commented on the IMDB, “It made me cry into tears”.
The Emoji Movie – Yes, it’s the animated thing in which Sir Patrick Stewart plays a talking piece of poop. Pretty much all you need to know.
Rock Dog – Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard and JK Simmons are talking animals in this animated fare about a dog who wants to become a musician. Think of Poochie from the Simpsons but with more sass.
The Survivalist – Intense, harsh sci-fi flick finds a survivalist guy living on his own in the woods after some major starvation-type holocaust who is beset upon by a couple of hungry women. Much suspense and tension, I presume, ensue.
The Vietnam War – Huge (like, 10-disk huge!) immersive excellent documentary from the great Ken Burns looks at the history of Vietnam, the war and it’s aftermath.
War for the Planet of the Apes
The Leftovers Season 3
An Inconvenient Sequel

Stay golden, Vancouver. See you Saturday.
