    The Predator

    ★★

    Every couple minutes I feel like I catch a glimpse of Shane Black's wit and dark humor trying to creep out only for the curtain to be drawn tight and being thrown back into a mess of ideas and uninspiring characters.

    But there are predators... so that's kinda cool?

    ★★★½

    This is one of those movies that I enjoy more with every watch. Jack Black's unwavering commitment and ability to lean into the silly is endearing and endlessly amusing.

    Game Night

    ★★★★

    Maybe it just caught me on the right night or maybe I just haven't gotten a lot of sleep lately so I was loopy, but this film hit all the right notes for me. The comedy was clever and given time and it came across as more thoughtful than many of the comedies I have seen lately.

    I was cry laughing at one point. Jesse Plemons just keeps impressing me.

    Jupiter Ascending

    ★★★

    Yeah, it's not a great movie if you stop and think about it, but considering some of the negative critical consensus, I didn't expect to be as thoroughly entertained as I was for the entire duration of this film. Jupiter Ascending isn't an example of some of the conceptually deep sci-fi we have loved over the past few years, but it is a lot of the low-explanation sci-fi fun that genre fans can enjoy.
