    ABCs of Death 2


    Somehow even worse than the first one. But at least there was no "F Is For Fart."

    Doesn't *quite* work as a whole, but most of the shorts are solid on their own, especially "The Accident."

    A *vast* improvement over Into Darkness. Where Into Darkness was overly serious and too-densely plotted, Beyond is good, zippy fun and easy to follow. But I do wish that one of these movies would foreground the characters rather than the plot, especially with this cast. There are a couple half-hearted attempts at character building, but it's just lip service. Oh, and can we cut it out with the MacGuffins already? I'm tired of Tesseracts and God's Eyes and whatever the hell an Abronath is. Also, bring back Bruce Greenwood, please and thank you.

    R.I.P. Anton Yelchin.

    Surprised there wasn't more awards buzz for the two leads -- Fiennes and Swinton were outstanding.
