    ★★½

    In a nutshell:
    (Hal gone cray-cray 🔴)

    * Logan Marshal-Green is a star in the making 🤑
    * I felt for the main character 🎭 
    * Leigh can push himself even more than this... extend those action scenes Mr! 🤜💥 
    * Predictable plot 📝 
    * Nice little twist at the end 🔴
    * Not as good as the critics have said... it’s a solid B-Movie 👌
    * Think I’ll enjoy even more second time around 👍

  • The Shape of Water

    The Shape of Water

    ★★★★½

    In a nutshell:
    (👩🏻+🐠=👉🏻👌🏻)

    * Stunning... Even more so in 4K Ultra HD 🤩
    * Cineliterate 🎥 
    * Cinematography/Set Design/Art Direction 😍
    * Homages range from Creature From the Black Lagoon (1954) to Follow the Fleet (1936) and many more... As always you can see Del Toros love for cinema ❤️
    * Whimsical score 🎵 
    * Very Freudian 🧐
    * Sally Hawkins is wonderful, equal parts deserved the Oscar to Emma Stone in my opinion 🏆
    * Dark/Romantic/Meaningful/Tense/Touching/Funny... what more…

    The Meg

    ★★½

    In a nutshell:

    * Fun fact - Jason Statham spent 12 years on the British national diving team, competing on the 10-meter platform and the 3-meter springboard. In 1992, he was ranked 12th in the world as a platform diver... I was wondering when he’d be in a water movie 🏊🏻‍♂️ 
    * Bruce is back!... We’re gonna need a MUCH bigger boat 🦈!
    * Wait... this is the same Director as While You Were Sleeping?! 🤪
    * I want Big…

    Deadpool 2

    ★★★

    In a nutshell:
    (The Super Duper Edition)

    * Extended opening ⚔️🔫👍
    * Cheap death 😵... now ‘that’s lazy writing’ Wade Wilson 📝 
    * 007 reference 🤣
    * Peter is the real hero of this movie 👨🏻
    * The action isn’t bad... but I was still hoping John Wick good 🤷🏻‍♂️
    * No more ‘Take On Me’ that’s a shame... 🎵 
    * Time travel has just made this whole movie kinda irrelevant 😒
    * I wish Ryan would stop crapping on…
