    The Foreigner

    ★★★½

    I'm really quite surprised by "The Foreigner", even after hearing surprisingly solid things I still wasn't too excited for it and after seeing it, I'm glad to say that this is a really solid action film. While there are times where it can slow down and the plot can get a little convoluted, this film rises of the strong direction from Martin Campbell, excellent action sequences, and the fantastic performances from Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan. I'd highly recommend this if you want too see an action movie that actually makes you think.

  • Happy Death Day

    Happy Death Day

    ★★★½

    "Happy Death Day" has its problem but wow was I ever surprised with how much fun I had with this one. It's not very scary and has a few different endings but some genuinely suspenseful sequences, a lot of laugh out loud moments, and an absolutely killer performance from Jessica Rothe make this a great time at the movies. This is just 90 minutes of pure entertainment that is perfect to see around Halloween time. I'd definitely recommend this.

  • The Intern

    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.
