X-Men: Apocalypse
19 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Dreadfully boring. Worst installment since Ratner's #3. Please let this franchise die, already.

The Nice Guys
The Nice Guys (2016)
45 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I've been watching Shane Black movies for decades. Some are spectacular (Lethal Weapon 1 & 2, Kiss Kiss/Bang-Bang, The Long Kiss Goodnight) and some are shitfests (Iron Man 3, The Last Action Hero, RoboCop 3, Predators). This is in-between, but definitely disappointing. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Crowe and Gosling, the '70's Los Angeles setting and the soundtrack. Beyond that, there's not much here that wasn't already touched upon in both the first Lethal Weapon and Kiss Kiss/Bang-Bang. Detective story, moments of mirth, moments of grisly violence, multiple plot twists at the end and roll credits. *Yawn*. You have been warned.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Star Wars film we never knew we needed. Full of nerd love, swagger, heart, humor and grit. One of definitely the darkest installments in the franchise, no need to fear the space teddy bears or reggae-infused Gungans here - the third act feels like a missing scene out of the opening of "Saving Private Ryan". Exceptionally well-acted, scripted, directed and visualized. They poured a LOT of soul and capital into this project and their efforts should equal a ridiculously boffo box office.

Fun...but I have no urge to see it twice. 007 lite...
