    Pacific Rim: Uprising

    ★★★

    This isn’t the first one and it certainly ain’t Shakespeare, but I kinda loved this dumb fun of a movie.

  • The Equalizer 2

    The Equalizer 2

    ★★½

    Predicable as all get out. Some decent action, but not enough to bother rushing to see it. Washington walks through this obvious paycheck of a movie acting like the only person who has any sort of brain in their head, while everyone else plays tropey bores who he has to save because they are useless characters who couldn’t do anything without him. And not for nothing, The Equalizer is kind of a smug prick in this one. You’ll forget about it in a day or so.

    Death Note

    ★★★

    Not having read or seen the original Japanese telling of the story, this review comes from a place of blind ignorance of the subject matter. Keep this in mind as you read on. That said, the movie is fine. Not a masterpiece. Not a game changer in the least, but serviceable none the less. I understand the whitewashing aspect is a bit touchy for many and understandably so. Those feelings are completely valid and studios should address the issue more…

    From Dusk Till Dawn

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A crime caper turned bat crap crazy in the funnest sense. A guilty pleasure flick for sure, but might not be in everyone's wheelhouse. Gore galore and FX a plenty.
