    Extraordinary Tales

    ★★★

    I really like Edgar Allen Poe’s work and animated films, so a film that combines those two things should have been right up my alley.  I’m not saying it wasn’t entertaining, it was, I was just looking for more than this film provided.  It was just narration over animation acting out what the narrator was saying.  I was just hoping that it’d be more of an interpretation of Poe’s work than just somebody reading the works to me.

  • Venom

    Venom

    ★½

    I could be talking out of both sides of my mouth considering I defended The Predator I few weeks ago and some may argue that that film is just as dumb if not more dumb than Venom.  However, given I had almost no expectations going into Predator, I at least had fun watching even though I can (I did actually) admit its plot was pretty stupid.  I never had that feeling with this film...it had the DNA of an interesting horror film but the filmmakers decided to make a generic action film instead.

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★½

    I have always liked the Mission Impossible movies because they are always fun summer action movies.  Fallout, despite a few attempts, never rises above that.  Full review here!

    The X Files: I Want to Believe

    ★★½

    A story that would have made for a weak 45-minute episode gets stretched out to a 2-hour movie. Full review coming soon at thenerdspodcast.com
