    The Mummy

    ★★

    I liked the whole necromancer aspect of this new mummy. The undead looked pretty cool. The shambling dark creature that was summoned early on looked pretty cool also. I wish there was more of this and less bland, overdone action sequences.

    Cruise is not enough to make this film worthwhile. This movie is completely lacking in charisma and/or charm. Another example of what happens when you throw a big budget at a project without any passion or inspiration behind it. Alex Kurtzman better not fuck up Jean Luc Picard.

  • The Dead Don't Die

    The Dead Don't Die

    ★★★½

    I don't think it sets a new high bar for zombie films or zombie comedies but it sure was a delight to watch. RZA's cameo is the best.

    Predator

    ★★★★★

    A squad of one man armies swing their dicks into the wrong jungle. This is the kind of swaggering male bravado the Expendables franchise desperately wishes it was. As if that wasn't enough Predator is a solid as hell monster movie and slasher film that fires on all cylinders.

  • Hardcore Henry

    Hardcore Henry

    ★★★★½

    This movie is distilled high octane insanity. Hardcore sets a new high bar for action on film. Imagine the most intense fight scene in something like the Raid but it keeps going, keeps escalating, and doesn't stop until the credits roll.

    The first person view will draw comparisons to gaming and it definitely takes inspiration from videogames like Half Life in terms of pacing. It is so much damn fun. The stunts in this film are crazy. I would love…
