    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★★½

    Not as fun as Ant-Man, but still a solid MCU entry. Like a lot of Marvel sequels, it feels a bit bloated with characters and still a bit thin plotwise. There are some really inventive sequences though, and the cast is solid all around. But as good as Paul Rudd is, Michael Peña still stole the show. Give that man his own movie already.

    ★★★

    Basically a string of fights held together with the thinnest of narrative connective tissue. Thankfully the fight choreography is excellent and brutal with Scott Adkins crushing it as Boyka. The overactive foley was distracting and the non-Adkins acting was pretty awful, but who cares when the kicks hit this hard? I have no idea why Scott Adkins isn't getting bigger roles...

    Ready or Not

    ★★★★

    Besides a novel set up, Ready or Not is yet another entry into the "Rich Assholes Hunting People for Sport" thriller sub genre, along classics such as Surviving the Game, The Running Man, and the Purge. So no, this doesn't bring anything new to the genre, but what it is does it does really well. Great acting all around, with Samara Weaving as a killer (ha) anchor and Andie MacDowell as the reluctant matriarch, propulsive pacing, and a perfect tightrope…
