Central Intelligence

I laughed. Then I laughed more. Then I laughed lots. When you get right down to it, that's what you want out of a comedy. These two make a great lead pair and are hilarious together.

Terminator Genisys
4 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's not "bad" per-se, but it feels like someone mashed together a bunch of other movies and a Doctor Who episode to come up with a plot. As soon as they start talking about people being at a time nexus, and them having time travel machinery in 1984... yeah.

If this was called something else, it'd probably be easier to accept it for what it is. But, it's not. It's got "Terminator" in the name, and so much focus is spent on trying to explain what is going on that there is less time for the character interaction and development that made the franchise so good in the first place.

Rightly or wrongly, watching Genisys is mostly a reminder of just how good Terminator 1 and 2 are.

(I will also add that unlike a lot of other people, I thought Emilia Clarke did a great job. She is nowhere near the top of the list of issues here.)

Zootopia (2016)

Delightfully fun, with a great message. :)

Ant-Man (2015)
7 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Certainly not one of Marvel's better efforts. It's not Amazing Spider Man bad, but that's a pretty low bar.

Deadpool (2016)
8 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I don't know how well Deadpool will hold up across subsequent viewings in the future, and I suspect it may not be a movie that ages well.

Right now, though? The time is ripe for an over the top adult superhero comedy, and it delivers in spades. Fans of the genre should leave the little kids at home (seriously!) and go see it. You will not be disappointed.
