Rating History

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
17 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Good? Yes for the most part. Funny? Mostly yes, but not quite as much as its predecessor. There's a few awkward comedic misfires here, and minor character/story development issues. Nebula and Gamora's subplot has a disappointing sibling-rivalry resolve, the "epic" showdown vs Ego suffers from the redundant CG-I overkill that plagues many blockbusters these days, and overall this is a lesser sequel. It's entertaining enough, but Guardians 2 lacks the fresh, exuberant charm that made Guardians 1 so unique. It still manages to be worthy the price of admission though.

Ocean's Eleven
2 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Smooth, slick as hell, simple, straight forward and direct. I've always loved this film unconditionally. Sure, objectively it may not be a perfect movie, but damn do I find it entertaining. From the soundtrack, cast, dialogue, cinematography and execution, this is a simple heist story executed with pizazz.

Star Trek Beyond

No need for a lengthy review. Star Trek Beyond, though lacking the distinction, depth and charm of its predecessors, is still action packed from beginning to end, and simply fun: A factor many blockbusters these days lack.


Side note: Simon Pegg manages to not be obnoxious here.
