Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero

Director: Richard Lanni

Year: 2018     Run Time: 84 min

The true story of a stray dog who joins his new master on the battlefields of the First World War. For his valorous actions, Sgt. Stubby is still recognized as the most decorated dog in American history.

Tim's Review

It's not my kind of movie, but it checked off all the boxes in terms of length and for kids it's a good movie about patriotism and America honor

Gregg's Review

I thought it was great. I don't think Sgt Stubby is ever going to be on the level of Benji as far as being an American hero who happens to be a dog, but I do think the movie's very good.

Director: Rob Greenberg

Year: 2018     Run Time: 112 min

A spoiled, wealthy yacht owner is thrown overboard and becomes the target of revenge from his mistreated employee.

Tim's Review

It actually is kind of cool with the VR you can get a sense of where...what I'm reading. It's sort of like this is a fully immersive experience.

Gregg's Review

I think they were taking a risk but I think the risk paid off because this movie is just as good as the original, maybe even a touch better.

Creature from the Black Lagoon

Director: Jack Arnold

Year: 1954     Run Time: 79 min

A strange prehistoric beast lurks in the depths of the Amazonian jungle. A group of scientists try to capture the animal and bring it back to civilization for study.

Gregg's Comments

There's nothing new under the sun, and certainly virtual reality has been done and done to death. It all started here in 1954 with The Creature From The Black Lagoon.
