I write about movies at Slashfilm, SyFy, ScreenCrush, The Hollywood Reporter, and sometimes here too.
The Michael Giacchino score that builds to a crescendo over the opening studio logos is a tip-off to the ensuing film—it sounds like something you might hear at the start of a wild and woolly roller-coaster ride right before you’re plunged off at high speed to parts unknown.
This is what I think of when the phrase “summer movie” comes to mind. Ridiculous but a hell of a lot of fun. Just like a roller coaster.
