"Relentlessly mediocre. I can't fault the direction or acting very much, but the writing is unforgivable. The villains are comically motivated by money, while the dinosaurs are lovable, soulful creatures (with tearducts??) that deserve to be let out into California to eat people and less deserving animals. The problems with the script are so pervasive and overwhelming that they drag down whatever fun the movie could have offered. At least the first one knew it was a shameless cash-in."

"I found Alex Garland's last opus a little lacking, but this one hit the cerebral sci-fi spot for me. Obviously indebted to Kubrick and Tarkovsky, but in a way that lives up to their influence, which is no easy feat. The visuals are sublime and the thrills are terrifying enough to haunt while also being slow-moving enough to allow you to chew the scenery and world that he has built. A fantastic original sci-fi."

"Another fresh entry into the Marvel Universe (following up on Ragnarok) after years of good but unremarkable movies. Ryan Coogler and his muse Michael B. Jordan were an excellent choice of hands to entrust the next chapter of the franchise."
|12 3%||Fifty Shades Freed (2018) - Apr 15, 2018
"As someone who has moderately managed to enjoy the last two entries, this is genuinely bad. The sex is dialed back again to be replaced with subplots upon subplots of idiotic drama. The writing genuinely fell off a cliff which is a shocking achievement given the low bar that was previously established. Skip, unless you're a masochist."
|53 49%||Winchester (2018) - Apr 15, 2018
"Actually pleasantly surprised with this one. It wasn't particularly scary, but took the material in a different, more ponderous direction. The period and the personal drama help to develop a haunting overall atmosphere that takes the place of more traditional horror."

"Always love me some Sorkin dialogue. Pro-tip: the movie is way more hilarious once you realize Michael Cera = Tobey McGuire. "
