    ★★★½

    As a kid I never really watched the show at all, so going into this movie I was completely blind aside from the weak trailers I had seen, and I'm so pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had watching this entire movie. This is such a fast paced, very entertaining, and wildly fun movie. The performances are all actually pretty strong and each character is surprisingly very well fleshed out. The action scenes are an absolute blast to watch,…

    Life

    ★★★½

    While the characters could've used a little more development, the plot of the film is derivative of other films, and you can see pretty much every surprise and reveal coming about a mile away, theirs no denying how entertaining and interesting "Life" is. The cast all turn in solid performances, Daniel Espinosa's direction is actually quite strong, and despite some scenes being a bit predictable the film managed to keep me on the edge of my seat for pretty well all of it's run time. It's nothing that's gonna be remembered in years to come, but it works so well as a claustrophobic sci-fi horror film.

    The Intern

    ★★★½

    It's predictable, cliched, and it does run to long containing some unnecessary subplots but "The Intern" is still a really sweet and enjoyable film to watch. Robert De Niro is terrific and Anne Hathaway is really good as well and the two of them do share some really good chemistry. The tone also balances drama, comedy and a little romance pretty nicely as well. It's nothing to special, but it's still a irresistibly charming crowd pleaser.

    Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2

    For a good amount of its runtime I was thinking to myself how could someone make something so painfully unfunny, uninspired and boring filled with juvenile humor, annoying characters and dumb gags, then I remembered I was watching Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.
