    Snow Day

    A movie that could've been a solid preteen comedy is instead a horribly scripted affair. The characters just aren't worth investing in, from annoying kids, to horny teens, to a creepy plow driver and a principal used only for a weak, repetitive slapstick gag.

It's watchable, but I can't think of any reason to recommend it.

    ★★★★½

    Four stars for the movie, and an extra half star for the ending.

    No Time to Die fires on all cylinders, delivering an excellent, adrenaline-pumping, and emotional finale to Daniel Craig's James Bond run! The cast is brilliant, the action is propulsive and choreographed well, the pacing is mostly solid, and the marrying of old 007 tropes with the modern parts of Craig's movies is done with much more finesse. Whereas Spectre faulted, delivering a boring and disappointing final product,…
