Don’t accept a friend request from “Unfriended: Dark Web”

UPDATE: apparently there are two endings for this movie.  Sounds like the second one would be more satisfying. (Thank you for the thorough breakdown, The Ringer)   My grade still stands though.  I dislike watching idiots for an hour and a … Continue reading

“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” – fun but boilerplate dino spectacle

Nutshell: Big-ass dinosaurs!  If that’s all it takes to float your boat, you’ll have a good time. Need more?  Tough. Kingdom ain’t bad, but it’s not particularly good either.  It is a whole lot of groovy dino-mayhem/CGI spectacle though. If … Continue reading

“Solo”: Perhaps not the origin story we were looking for, but it works

“Breaking In” is heavy on action fun, light on substance

Nutshell: Looking for a movie that has action, but doesn’t tax the ol’ brainpan? Well look no further. Union is fantastic as the mom who has to save her kids, but other than the usual action tidbits there’s little else here. … Continue reading

Lackluster “Life of the Party”

Nutshell: SIGH.  I really wanted to love this movie.  Yet I just can’t. Jokes that fall flat and/or are drawn out for way too long. A story that doesn’t really seem to know where it’s going or what it’s trying … Continue reading
