    What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

    ★★★½

    'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?' is a familiar, but entertaining story with nuanced and multi-layered performances that save the film from its stalest patches. Bette Davis takes every scene and runs with it in her phenomenal performance.

    Yeah, I'd be lying if I said 'Terminator Genisys' was a good movie and had a legitimate reason to exist. Unfortunately, this film is a prime example of Hollywood trying to squeeze all the potential existing money out of a once great franchise by making a film that is very much sequel bait without much substance.

    Alan Taylor tries very little to make a good Terminator movie here, watching the movie the audience can tell he wanted…
