    Incredibles 2

    ★★★½

    Believe it or not, 2004 was 14 years ago. I know, math, right? But that means it’s been almost a decade and a half since the original “Incredibles” was released in theaters. I loved it when I saw it in college, reveling in the by-gone design and old-school comic book-feel of the world writer/director Brad Bird had created. Then we waited. And waited. And forgot.

    The Hitman's Bodyguard

    ★★★★

    I went into this with very low expectations because I had heard from a friend that it wasn't great. I was pleasantly surprised (and I think my friend was watching a different movie). Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson have awesome chemistry, though Reynolds' character is a little whiny. Selma Heyak steals every scene she's in and the action sequences are TOP NOTCH. If you like car crashes, gun fights, and Sam Jackson saying "Motherfucker" A LOT, then you'll love this. If not, then why are you reading my review? Very enjoyable!

But some bemoaned its sameness and wanted more from The Last Jedi. 
    So Rian Johnson gave us lasagna. Really good lasagna too, the kind that's even better as leftovers. And…

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★½

    Really, really loved it. Empowering, entertaining, heartfelt. Finally a good movie from DC. And Gal Gadot was fantastic. Third act needed a little work, but hard to find fault otherwise. Go see it!
