6/10 61% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) It's so overly simplistic, and its so hackneyed, and they don't really breathe a lot of life into that message. Having said that, there are enough light and goofy moments that are playful. ‐ What the Flick?!

1.5/4 43% Fireworks (2018) A strange little movie that attempts the tricky feat of combining comedy, drama, sci-fi and romance, but it doesn't get those individual elements right so it never coheres as a whole.‐ RogerEbert.com

7.5/10 87% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) There is more of an emotional underpinning to this one than there was in the first one because of the Michelle Pfeiffer element to it. ‐ What the Flick?!

5.8/10 64% Sicario: Day of the Soldado (2018) There are moments that are quite tense, but as a whole, ideologically, I don't know what this movie is trying to say--I don't know that its that coherent. ‐ What the Flick?!

6/10 58% Hotel Artemis (2018) I like the idea of this, I like the look of this...It's kind of superficial, and I don't know [if] there's a whole lot of depth to whatever allegory this is intended to be. It's just an exercise in style, and that's cool. ‐ What the Flick?!
