MOVIE REVIEWS
 

Trainspotting 2

"Trainspotting 2" made more than double its predecessor at the box office, but is destined to be largely forgotten in popular culture, in much the same way the “Wizard of Oz” sequel was.

Transformers: The Last Knight

For the sake of fun, I guess, or something like it.

The LEGO Batman Movie

“The LEGO Batman Movie” plucks the breakout character from the first movie and gives him his own flick, with gleeful fun for kiddies resulting.

Cars 3

An unexpected left turn for the animated franchise, combining zippy action for kids and some surprisingly hefty contemplation about life passing us by.

Keanu Reeves reprises his role as badass assassin John Wick in "John Wick: Chapter Two," a 2017 Summit-Lionsgate release directed by Chad Stahelski.

John Wick: Chapter 2

The "John Wick" movies are slick, ultra-violent escapism that mixes a grim revenge saga with gallows humor.

The Mummy

“The Mummy” wants to steal your money. Don’t let it. (Spoilers within if you care, which you shouldn’t because this movie is terrible.)

Beauty and the Beast

A well-crafted film, bright and engaging and full of vivid characters that, alas, still has no reason for existing.

Wonder Woman

“Wonder Woman” brings joy and compassion to the DC Cinematic Universe, right up until the moment it remembers it’s part of the DC Cinematic Universe.
