    ★★★★

    A fun monster movie that’s impressive in the special effects department. The fights were surprisingly brutal, the carnage was a sight to see, and The Rock...well he’s The Rock. All hail George!

    ★★½

    Disappointing when it comes to Carpenter films. It has an interesting science vs religion discussion, but it’s a slow plotting exorcist type of story on a staples budget that doesn’t have much tension even with the few cool scenes it showcases, particularly towards the end.

    The Greatest Showman

    ★★★★

    I love musicals, and first and foremost The Greatest Showman is about the musical, the idea, themes, and visuals, and on that front it's great. It's not the dramatic biopic that P. T. Barnum deserves, but it's a fantastic vehicle to make audiences feel good and listen to some great songs choreographed to some really impressive scenes (and creative transitions) that'll make you leave the theater tingling and tapping your foot. It tackles the popular "Let the outcasts be themselves" themes against an ignorant society. The film is fast paced and blazes through history as much as their music is bombastic to the best.

    ★★

    This film is really difficult for me to express how I feel about it. There are parts I like, but as a whole I think I didn't like this movie. It starts off fine, if a bit heavy handed with the exposition, but once they set up some actually interesting characters they go no where for the next hour and a half. While very pretty, as any modern film is now a days, it was difficult not to question certain…
