2/5 81% Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) "Any spark or originality this series had has been wrung out by this point and is really of no value to anyone other than a desperate parent looking for 90 minutes of non-sensibility-offending distraction for their kids. " ‐ Suburban Journals of St. Louis

3/5 93% Sicario (2015) "It's not that I think 'Sicario' is a bad movie, far from it; it's just with so much terrific work going on in front of and behind the camera, the fact the end result is merely a 'good' movie somehow feels disappointing. " ‐ Suburban Journals of St. Louis
