I really don't know how to feel about this...my rating my change over time, but my initial reaction is that it's not one of MNS' best movies. It's hard to explain the issues I have with it without giving too much away, but I'll just say that I thought that the source of the problem is just a little "too easy" -- and KINDA cliche. Overall, the movie has that traditional MNS tension (as a former Philadelphian it was interesting that they had to say things like "TOWN OF Princeton" and "Rittenhouse Square PARK"), but some of the acting in the film left a lot to be desired, and kinda took me out of the situation a bit .... I actually watched this again for some reason and it didn't get any better. Just like before, the premise of the movie is compelling, and creates for some real tension, but the acting and the way the movie plays out (slowly) is just not very satisfying. It reminds me vaughly of War of the Worlds and how the build up is great and really interesting, but the finale is a huge dud.

Straight Outta Compton

While it's among the better ones that I've seen, I'm almost always one who would MUCH rather watch a documentary than to watch a biopic about someone or something. But this was really good and I feel like it hit all the major highlights and lowlights of NWA. The casting was excellent.

It's a really visually stunning movie. One of those movies I wish I would have seen on the big screen, but my casual knowledge (interest?) in the comic book wasn't enough for me to make this a top priority. It was much better than I thought it would be and I think Benedict Cumberbatch really pulled off the character nicely. And once again, we have another situation of humans fighting gods/cosmic beings ... but I like what they did.

Despicable Me 3

I'll admit, I'm a sucker for anything the minions (mostly in a supporting role) and while I think they've gotten about as much out of this series as they can, I still enjoyed this installment. 80s references and minions are enough to get me in the door. I kinda wish they would wrap this up before it gets too stale, but I think we all know that doesn't happen in Hollywood.

I never read the books so I wasn't tied down to that, but it was an entertaining enough kids movie with a side order of creepy at times.
