    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★

    Not as resoundingly gorgeous on a frame-by-frame basis as the original (although it's still pretty gorgeous), but feels more overtly noir-ish than the original which is always something I wished of it. As far as totally unnecessary sequels go, I think this one gets a pass.

  • Final Destination 2

    Final Destination 2

    ★★★

    Not without it's problem, but the traffic accident stunt piece opener is vastly superior to the original's plane crash. Not only does it introduce a little variety (instead of one large explosion killing everyone at once), but it creates an interesting starting point to circle back to and draws together otherwise disparate individuals... until the crappy plotline of everyone being connected starts coming together bogging us all down with details nobody really needed.

    The deaths seemed less silly to me,…

    What I Wanted: A loose, but faithful and well meaning adaptation of the Ray Bradbury short story of the same name.

    What I Got: Shit on.

    Dark Habits

    ★★

    I just can't help but feel that a movie about heroin-shooting lesbian nuns providing refuge to a showgirl on the run from the mob should've been more entertaining.
