The best thing I can say about Fifty Shades Darker is that it is one of the best comedies of 2017. Charlie Hunnam, is probably somewhere spiking the football that he backed out of this franchise before it ruined his career. There aren't enough buzzwords to describe how bad this is, you simply have to see it to believe it. If you aren't going to laugh at this film or get some Amazon recommendations for butt plugs this Valentine's Day, don't get suckered into seeing this film. Just watch porn and maintain the ounce of dignity you have left.
The Lego Batman Movie has its heart in the right place and for a younger audience, they will find it really enjoyable. There is still much to the film causal fans will enjoy as well but for me, while I did like it, I didn't love it as much as the first film. Hopefully, The LEGO team can polish up their flaws before their coming releases or they could be run into the novelty of this series getting really old, really fast.
John Wick: Chapter 2 concludes with John becoming the most wanted man in the world without a home or an ally on his side as the film sets up an explosive last chapter. As good as the first John Wick movie was, I'd argue that this film may even be better. The action is just as brutal if not more so in this sequel. Everything that made the first film a hit is magnified and polished creating a high-octane atmosphere you would have to be on lithium not to enjoy. John Wick: Chapter 2 is the first certified smash hit of the year and Keanu Reeves almost 15 years after the Matrix has another and much-deserved franchise on his hands.
The only thing that stands out in this film is NASA having more money and resources than Matt Damon had in The Martian and the primary plot device being emotional manipulation. The solution to Gardner's medical problems is absurd and even the big twist at the end you feel absolutely nothing for because you don't believe it for a second. The Space Between Us is a romantic science fiction film that is nearly as insulting as a sci-fi as it is insulting as a romance.
