Rampage



Rampage was a fun giant monster game back in the day.

Rampage is a fun giant monster movie with the Rock. Nothing more to say. That is all the plot you need.

There are some slow spots, but this was a fun watch.

A Quiet Place

This was an intense movie.

Do not expect answers. We jump into this world 89 days after … whatever happened, happened.

We follow a family who has their routine down to avoid the monsters. From going barefoot to cut down on sounds – to talking in sign language. I do not want to give anything away – just go see this.

The premise of this movie and the implementation are amazing. No words from me will do this justice.

Starring: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Cade Woodward

Ready Player One



I think most of these stars come from nostalgia alone.

This basically follows the plot of the “Save the Rec Center” style 80s movies. With Big Business tm as the big bad.

I had a lot of fun watching this. The crowd in my theater laughed a good bit. Especially when Chucky shows up.

I have not read the novel, but may need to now.

Starring: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki

Pacific Rim: Uprising



Pacific Rim: Uprising takes us to a world still recovering from the Kaiju attacks that ended 10 years ago.

We see the current state of the Jaeger program and how it is set to progress. We learn that even with the breach closed, the invaders are not done with us yet.

The trailer gives a lot of the action beats away. You see Jaeger fighting Jaeger. You see Kaijus voltroning themselves together.

Pacific Rim: Uprising is enjoyable enough. But it is missing that touch from the first one. Maybe its the lack of Ron Perlman…

Starring: John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Burn Gorman, Charlie Day, Tian Jing, Rinko Kikuchi

Gringo



Gringo is an ok movie. I totally had the wrong expectations from the trailer that has been playing.

The trailer makes it appear that this is a dark comedy. The comedy is rather lacking for me. I think one scene got a laugh in the theater I was in…except for one person laughed the whole movie.

Harrold, aka the Gringo, is basically shit upon for the bulk of the movie. This movie happens to him until the final reel.

I do think I would rate this higher if I hadn’t gone in expecting more comedy.

Starring: Joel Edgerton, Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo, Amanda Seyfried
