    Sicario: Day of the Soldado

    ★★

    A few nice shots and well done scenes but a disappointing mess on the whole. This film had nothing to say in the end; a far cry from the original.

    Molly's Game

    ★★

    Not nearly as smart as it thought it was especially with the forced, super hack pokerisms constantly littered into the narration. Wonder what Tobey Maguire’s side of the story is, seems like quite an asshole.

    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

    Loved so much of Annihilation; I really did not enjoy the Aliens Vasquez-type rip off. Yes someone might not handle things well in that situation but the writing for that character was terrible - I know we’ve been inside a bizarre shimmer place where the laws of nature don’t apply with crazy mutated creatures everywhere for 6 days but “I’ve been a paramedic for 10 years and that was a trick of the light” (Boo). Some of the other acting was a bit stiff and occasionally the plot/writing seemed a little dumbed down but I thoroughly enjoyed the film.

    Darkest Hour

    ★★★

    Some eye rolling, terrible Oscar bait type stuff going on, I enjoyed his speeches though. Dunkirk is better
