    47 Meters Down: Uncaged

    ★½

    A frequently dumb, mind-numbingly repetitive, and tragically uninspired follow-up that's obnoxious (with its atrocious fake-out jump-scares) when it isn't being boring (with its one-dimensional characters, wooden dialogue, and mostly mediocre performances), 47 Meters Down: Uncaged is yet another hunk of trash to add to the garbage bin that is director Johannes Roberts' filmography.

    The Wrecking Crew

    I only watched this for Sharon Tate (may this beautiful soul rest in peace) and Sharon Tate alone. Unfortunately, she can only do so much. If it wasn't for her performance (which is rich with bubbly, bumbling charm and she has actual good comedic timing), this would've been downright unwatchable. It's dumber than a bag of hammers, and not even in a fun way. It barely even resembles a real film. It feels more like a relentlessly incoherent series of really boringly repetitive goofy things happening (very poorly staged goofy things too). Even Dean Martin sucks here. Total manure.

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★½

    With its intense and exciting action sequences, excellent performances (with the exception of a laughable turn from Jesse Eisenberg), and dazzling visual spectacle being let down by an overstuffed and incoherent script that's filled to the brim with poorly written characters and needlessly convoluted plotting, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tries to be another Batman reboot, a Man of Steel sequel, and a Justice League set-up all at once with results that are nothing short of depressing to watch.…

    Arrival

    ★★★★★

    Yet another terrific entry in director Denis Villeneuve's filmography, Arrival is one of the most intelligent, visually stunning, and thought-provoking science fiction films in recent memory, led by a career-best performance from Amy Adams and a pensive, poignant screenplay by Eric Heisserer.
