This Week in Movies: Bruce Lee 4K, Mr. Robot, Dirk Gently and Death Race 2050!

This week sees the release of two outstanding and disturbing (in the best way) TV shows in recent viewing history - Mr. Robot and Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Mr. Robot, now in its second season, should be well known to anyone net-savvy. And it still keeps up the high bar it set in its first season.
Dirk Gently might need a short introduction: based on the books by Douglas Adams (Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy), interpreted by Max Landis (son of legendary director John Landis) and starring Elijiah Woods, Samuell Barnett and Aaron Douglas as what I assume is Mr. Plinkett, this flew completely under the radar until it surprised everyone. It’s trippy, smart, violent and – most importantly – funny as hell.
We also now have all the 4K remastered Bruce Lee classics in one Legendary Collection for anyone had the nerves to wait until all 4 movies were released. Also straight from Hong Kong comes Mission Impossible Milano, an action romp featuring Hong Kong's own Tom Cruise, Andy Lau, and Michelle Hu.
For those with stronger nerves, this week offers the disaster movie Deepwater Horizon, the reboot of the 90's horror phenomena Blair Witch and OMG a direct sequel to Roger Corman’s 1975 B-movie classic Death Race 2000, Death Race 2050, filmed in the same style! What a blast! 200 points!
