The Kitchen

A violent version of Ocean’s 8, minus five other players, comedy, or clever twists. It was worth the 58 cents it costs me at Redbox, but not any more than that. 4/10

Underwater

Meh. Ok if you don’t think about it and have 95 minutes to kill. Probably would be better at home where you can pause it. It does start quickly and keeps moving, but you’ve seen…

Gemini Man

Terribly disappointing. Stiff and stilted with none of the substance that makes the Bourne and Bond movies work. I expected much more out of Will Smith and Clive Owen, as well as Ang Lee. We…

The Gentlemen

Over the top. Spot on. Clever. Overflowing with did-not-see-that-coming moments. Guy Ritchie at his best. Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell – the whole cast, for that matter – brought their A games, as well….

Bad Boys for Life

Pure entertainment. Pretty much non-stop action interspersed with backstory breathers. Martin Lawrence is funny as hell and Will Smith is funny and dramatic. They nail the punchlines and move on without giving you much opportunity…

Like a Boss

Smart, cute, and funny. Somewhat raunchy at times but probably normal these days. Nothing new, but you can do worse. 7/10 Official Website – IMDB – Wikipedia
