    The Meg

    ★★½

    I forgot to post my review here for The Meg. Plain and simple...shitty characters and a shark that doesn't live up to the hype are my biggest issues here. The sound design was glorious in the theater though. But God I've seen so much better in the shark genre (The Shallows, Open Water, 47 Meters Down, Jaws 1 -3).

    And Ruby Rose is again reduced to the same role as always. I'd love to see her stretch out her acting chops in future roles.

    Slender Man

    Oh boy. The PG-13 rating with horror films has been a long running debate, and Slender Man isn't doing any favors for the cause. This. Was. Bad.

Bottom line...this was such a satisfying experience.

    Kinsey (Bailee Madison) and brother Luke (Lewis Pullman) are the heart and soul of this vehicle. They have such a strong…

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★★

    Full disclosure....I "like" the MI series. They're fun for what they are, but I'm not obsessed with them. It I'm reaching for an action film to watch, I RARELY ever grab one of these movies.

    Having said that, MI: Fallout is the BEST ACTION FILM I've seen since John Wick 2 (and that is a tall f'ing order). It's that good...and easily the best of the bunch.

    I think the thing with the others is that I'm not fully invested…
