The Misguided is a movie that lives up to its name. Director Shannon Alexander has put together a great cast whose convincing performances help keep this intriguing story grounded in reality. It's an interesting look at the difficult bond that can hold families together, or tear them apart. All of the main characters seem to be lost souls, going nowhere fast. No matter what they do to try and improve their situation, something always seems to get in the way. More often than not, that something turns out to be themselves!

Pacific Rim: Uprising | Average Guy Movie Review

It has been ten years since Raleigh Becket and Mako Mori closed the Breach and ended the Kaiju war. Mori is now in charge of the Pan-Pacific Defence Corp (PPDC) which stands ready should a new Kaiju threat appear, they're also busy policing the black market trade in Jaeger tech. When one of those traders - Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), former Jaeger pilot and son of the legendary Stacker Pentecost - lands on the PPDC's radar, he's given a choice; prison or re-join the PPDC as an instructor. But with certain parties looking to privatise the Jaeger program, the next threat Jake and his fellow Rangers face may be a little closer to home.

Altered Carbon ¦ Average Guy TV Review

In this dystopian future death is avoidable. At the point of death a person's consciousness is downloaded into their "stack" - a microchip built into the vertebrae at the base of the neck - which can then be inserted into a new body or "sleeve". 250 years after his death, Takeshi Kovacs (Joel Kinnaman) - a man who fought a rebellion against this very way of life - is awoken into Bay City (present day San Francisco) by Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy). Bancroft is one of the oldest and richest men on the planet and he wants Kovacs to investigate a murder, his own. Throughout the course of the investigation, Kovacs will come to blows with the police and the criminal underworld, some of whom may have more of an issue with the sleeve than the man who's occupying it!


Altered Carbon is like Blade Runner meets The 6th Day - that Schwarzenegger movie about cloning. It's got the cyberpunk grittiness of Blade Runner, a noir, mystery thriller and the loner investig…
