    Robin Hood

    ★★½

    It's not as bad as I had heard but its clears little else. I actually like the idea of trying to modernize and stylize medieval action. There is one standout action scene towards the end that was well executed and had as close to a modern day car chase with carriages as you'll see. Besides that there's little else to hold onto. No characters are interesting, even Robin himself. There's also a weird message jammed in at the the climax that did not land in anyway. This is one to skip unless you were really intrigued by the trailers.

Perhaps some momentum is slowed in the final 20 minutes…

At its core however we have Logan and Charles in varied passages of life, dealing with past…

    ★★★★

    A time loop premise in an action/sci-fi genre film is awesome, really feels like a video game. Movie has fun with it's premise but does have some emotional balance with the strain of seeing wartime carnage and failure over and over for Cruise's character. Emily Blunt brings it, her wielding that futuristic sword in the sandy dunes never gets old. Certainly one of my favorites from the last decade.
