    Mortal Engines

    ★★★

    I did enjoy Mortal Engines. It's wildly ambitious yet at the same time derivative of better more famous blockbuster epics. There's something emotional missing, I didn't really care for anyone but I was never bored. Imagination like this makes my inner child grin. I love attempts at world building on this scale and will continue to embrace them wholeheartedly and hope they never stop making them.

    Great fight scenes, cool lines, and spirited performances accompany the unoriginal story and…

    Con Air

    ★★★★★

    Scholors and philanthropists have long speculated, and scientists have since backed up, that Con Air may indeed be the most significant and important tale of our time.

    July 14th isn't just the day Cameron Poe gets released from his harsh seven-year incarceration for manslaughter by self-defense. It's not just little Casey Poe's birthday. It's not just the day she's going to see her daddy for the first time.

    July 14th is an international holiday, and Simon West's totally overblown, ridiculous,…
