    Logan

    ★★½

    Another case of the trailer being much stronger than the final product. I gave this another chance in hopes of finding the greatness I missed the first time around, but the movie actually got worse on a rewatch.

    ★★★★

    A well-oiled machine that consistently dispenses excitement and thrills. Credit must be given to the immersive presentation of the period setting and a fine cast (John C.

Her character is useless and barely makes her presence felt; if you want to insert a Chinese actor into the mix, don't be so blatantly awkward about it.

    Operation Chromite

    ★★

    A story like this shouldn't produce such a cheap, thoroughly unmoving film.
