Enjoying a Down Weekend

The Oscar nominations were released recently, with quite a few nods to The Black Panther. I did see that one on a plane, and despite the small screen, I enjoyed the story and the visual action. It’s one that I may try to watch again on a larger screen at some point, likely with kids. The family is a group of Marvel fans, and while I’ve mostly stuck to the mainstream movies, the kids have enjoyed some of the series that complete the Marvel Universe. We’ve gone as a group to most of the theatrical movies, and I expect we’ll see the next Avengers when it releases.

I also saw the best geek movies of 2018, most of which I had not seen. I’m more of an episodic, TV show fan, but I get to a few movies with my wife, who loves them. A good movie is sometimes a great break on the weekend from life, and I wanted to get some recommendations from others. Winter time in Colorado keeps me busy, and I love reading books, but sometimes curling up to watch a movie with the family is something I look forward to enjoying.

There are more and more movies being released all the time, of all sorts, but it seems the geek, fantasy, science fiction genre has grown quite a bit. As a kid it felt like we had few of these style movies, and settled for the comic book genre to explore amazing imaginary ideas. Now it seems between Amazon, Netflix and other major studios, there are more new sci-fi or tech films than I have time to watch.

Are there films you enjoyed in 2018? Perhaps there are a few you’re looking forward to in 2019 that you await. Take a minute today and give a quick review of what you’ve enjoyed and what films with technology, fantasy, or just thrilling sections that you think others might enjoy on a night away from work.

    I grew up a Marvel comic book fan (over DC), but strangely, the only Marvel Universe movie I’ve watched from beginning to end is Doctor Strange — which I enjoyed immensely!

    If I think of any others, I’ll comment some more!
