    The World's End

    ★★★★★

    Edgar Wright's most ambitious, original and heartfelt film to date. People calling "The World's End" the weakest in the Cornetto trilogy is an opinion I can completely understand but it's one of those films that holds up so well on rewatches. It's such a consistently hilarious, extremely energetic, and surprisingly layered movie that has so many things going for it. The action sequences are so well directed and awesome to watch, and the cast are all so much fun with…

    ★★★½

    Despite some story elements being glossed over and some slow moments in the second act, "Megan Leavey" surprised me quite a bit. I was very impressed with how solid the direction was and how strong of a lead performance Kate Mara gave. I also completely bought into the relationship between Leavey and Rex which had me holding back tears in the final few scenes. This isn't a great movie but it tells a fascinating true story and I'm really glad I checked it out.

  • 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.
