    Typical horror movie. Figured what it was about just by the title. No spoilers but the scene where Jay escapes her house on a bicycle was laughable. All of the actors seem asleep or stoned. Will give props for the score. Has a certain John Carpenteresque vibe.

    If Oscar Issac and Domhnall Gleeson are this bad in Star Wars, we're in trouble.

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    Probably one of the best acted of the Marvel films. I couldn't tell you what it's about other than Hawkeye has a family, Black Widow has the hots for Hulk, plus the Olson triplet and the lesser of two Quicksilvers. Sometimes bigger is not better. It's messier, cumbersome and hard to follow. where as the first Avengers was a culmination of Phase 1, Age of Ultron feels like a dismantling of Phase 2. One thing that Ultron gets right is the tour de force that is Scarlett Johannson.

    Typical Cruise fare. As he gets older, the more over the top he becomes.. Cruise was at his best when he was in movies with Newman, Hoffman, Hackman. He's had some good to great lead roles, but now he needs to pick his roles more carefully. Tropic Thunder was great and out of left field. He needs to move away from action and back to drama.
