Key and Peele give us an original take on the stoner comedy, as the duo abandon their milquetoast suburban lives to infiltrate a gang. The goal is to rescue a kitten from a drug lord. Keanu has some really funny moments, but some slow scenes in between.
Three stars is a bit of a stretch, but the movie certainly has a good amount of heart. The biggest problem is that most of the jokes are as vapid as Chris Hemsworth's character. The good jokes don't really come until the middle of the movie, and the ending just runs out of steam. Some of the characters have potential but it's not developed as far as it should have been.
The second X-Men trilogy ends on a much stronger note than the first. X-Men Apocalypse kept me engaged despite its long runtime, as the young X-Men come to grips with their powers while battling one of the series' most powerful and memorable foes. It does have a few cheesy moments; Apocalypse, awakening after 5600 years of slumber in Egypt, hatches his plan for world domination because he sees a television montage covering the cold war.
It's about as over-the-top as a summer action-adventure blockbuster can get, but 'Star Trek Beyond" is actually pretty fun once you suspend disbelief and ignore a few plot holes. The visual effects are truly stunning, and the story creates some mystery that will keep audiences engaged. It certainly deserves points for an originality that was lacking in the previous Star Trek film.
In spite of their titles, the Star Wars films have notably spared audiences from the reality that war means sacrifice; stormtroopers can't shoot to save their lives, and most consequential characters make it through to the end of the film and get a decent ending. Not so for Rogue One, a movie which takes a noticeably darker tone than previous Star Wars films. In spite of being a fantasy film, Rogue One speaks volumes on what it means to be a soldier who puts the mission above everything else. While the film starts somewhat slowly, it builds up to an unforgettable crescendo, and stands out as one of the strongest entries in this long-running franchise.
