    (8.5/10)
    Upgrade: This has some of the best action sequences of 2018.

    Director Leigh Whannell's thriller is one of the biggest surprises of the year and one of the best revenge films since "John Wick." Whannell sprinkles in a hint of science fiction and has just a pinch of comedy. The thrills, humor, and sci-fi blended together with incredible fight sequences makes this a well balanced recipe.

    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…
