  • Ralph Breaks the Internet

    Ralph Breaks the Internet

    ★★★

    Rarely do I see a sequel before its predecessor. In this case, I needed a quick fix and Breaks the Internet stepped in. Not bad. The referential stuff was either over my head or under it.
    Always a fun concept to imagine the world of the web. Hackers, Lawnmower Man, Jurassic Park, Disclosure, Comedy Bang Bang, Brainscan, The Matrix, and Tron all gave it their best shot. A lighthearted romp through RAM.

  • Justice League

    Justice League

    ★★★

    So the shiners are for sure The Flash and Wonder Woman. Cyborg and Aquaman showed up so they could get their launch for their individuals. Batman was supposed to be the glue but unfortunately it was just Elmer’s, and Superman was a cameo.
    Villain was pretty cool. I am not going to compare it to any other franchises out there but the comparisons to some unnamed organizations are almost embarrassing. 
    I still think the Dark Universe can edge out DC.

  • Brawl in Cell Block 99

    Brawl in Cell Block 99

    ★★★★½

    Fantastic. Perfect prison exploitation film, in fact probably the best. So violent and so calmly over the top. Except for the near perfect Made and Swingers, I had written off Vince Vaughn entirely. Now he is back in the greatest role of his career. Not only was this meticulously carried out aggression but some of the violent acts were an absolute first I have seen on the screen. So happy this happened. Great watch with friends to wince and scream with.

  • Murder Mystery

    Murder Mystery

    ★★½

    Serviceable and nothing more. With the exception of Sandler who was mediocre, the cast played their roles in line with the generic characterizations that a murder mystery requires. Its Netflix comedy signature shows but that is not necessarily a terrible thing.
    Won’t make any mystery lists but is watchable enough to give it a shot. Aniston and Evans give this an extra half a star.
