    ★★★

    (6.5/10)
    Skyscraper: What if Dwayne Johnson, but this time... in a really tall building... that's on fire.

    Director Rawson Marshall Thurber's film is no where near as fun as Dwayne Johnson's other action film earlier this year, "Rampage." However, it is a bit more tense, because this time he has to save his family. However, the biggest difference between this film and something like "Die Hard" is the every-man. John McClane is just a person. He can get hurt, and…

    ★★★

    (6/10)
    Tomb Raider: It's pretty much just one long cinematic video game cutscene.

    Director Roar Uthaug's "Tomb Raider" is easily the best film adaptation of the video game, but that isn't saying very much.

    Incredibles 2:
    I, like many others, have been waiting 14 years for this movie... AND IT WAS TOTALLY INCREDIBLE (pun intended)

    Writer and director Brad Bird beautifully recaptures everything that made the first one so great. It's a superhero film. It's a comedy. It's a drama. It's a film about family. It's the first Pixar sequel in quite sometime that feels just as good as its predecessor.

    The dynamics of the family are very well used. Bird writes all…
