  • Pain & Gain

    Pain & Gain

    ★★★★

    It’s been a while, but I really like this one. It’s so refreshing to see what a $25M Michael Bay movie looks like next to all his other behemoth films.

  • Terminator: Dark Fate

    Terminator: Dark Fate

    ★★★★

    Finally, a proper Terminator sequel since T2! This movie moves at a fast clip and the action never...stops, just like the Terminator. The chasing is relentless but it never feels dull. Director, Tim Miller finds a nice balance of feeding into the fandom and skipping a few instances of classic Terminator clichés and I really respect that.

  • Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

    ★★★★

    The best Fast and Furious movie since 'Fast Five' in 2011! It delivered on everything I was expecting and hoping for: over the top action, Michael Bay-esque explosion, and some stunning fight choreography.

    As an added bonus, the movie was WAY funnier than I expected! The riffs between Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham we're hilarious and Director David Leitch snuck in some great cameos too.

  • Atomic Blonde

    Atomic Blonde

    ★★★

    A solid spy movie. There’s a fight sequence in a stairwell towards the end that is absolutely incredible! A long, single take that is remarkable to see 👏

  • Spy Game

    Spy Game

    ★★

    Too political for my taste.

  • It

    It

    ★★★★

    After a second viewing, yep, still creepy AF! 🤡 😱 

    I’m not much of horror guy but this one is very good!

  • Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★

    Very predictable. Cheap thrills. Not a fan.

  • Glass

    Glass

    ★★★★

    This is better after a second viewing. It offers some great closure to the trilogy.

  • The Post

    The Post

    ★★

    I was not a fan. This just isn’t my kind of film. As someone who isn’t particularly interested in historic political events, I’m not surprised by my feelings for this one but I really couldn’t keep engaged or interested in this story, much like one of Spielberg’s other historical drama’s ‘Lincoln’.

  • Hereafter

    Hereafter

    ★★★

    Far from Clint Eastwood’s best but an interesting story with heart.

  • The Green Mile

    The Green Mile

    ★★★★

    It’s been years since I’ve seen this. Quite a powerful and thought-provoking film. Still holds up pretty well.

  • Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    ★★★

    Fantastic casting in Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, and of course Frances McDormand. I can see what the Oscar-buzz was all about a few years ago but ultimately, it was just “good” in my opinion.
