    Won't You Be My Neighbor?

    ★★★★

    It's a very moving palate cleanser.

    All the nastiness of people is momentarily forgotten during this movie. It didn't really contain a lot of information about Fred Rogers I hadn't read or seen before, but that didn't make it uninteresting. I recommend it.

    ★★½

    What a series of missed opportunities.

    I didn't know if this wanted to be a serious horror/action movie or a parody. The film seemed to change its mind from scene to scene and that really hurt it for me.

    It had some cool ideas: Van Helsing being able to detect evil was arguably the coolest idea in the film that could have worked in a smaller, more intimate story.

    It overly relied on 2004 CGI which understandably hurts the films…

    The Most B Movie that ever B'd.

    Beginning is fun.
    Middle drags a bit.
    Last 40 minutes are a blast.

    -Monster fights/destruction a A+
    VFX A-
    Everything else... C-
    The villains are cartoonish but aren't as distracting as some of the reviewers have claimed.

    Would recommend for a good time especially for monster movie fans. This is a real PG-13 film I wouldn't recommend for kids under 12 or 13.

    The Meg

    ★★★½

    Truth be told I have mixed feelings about The Meg. I read the novel it's based on by Steve Alten way back in 6th grade (far too young to have been reading it honestly, but it was a giant shark book), and have read it and its sequels multiple times in the past 18 or so years. I'm super excited to know that one of Alten's other books, The Loch, is already in preproduction under the same company. Though I'm…
