    Terminator: Dark Fate

    ★★½

    While I can acknowledge the good things here, I still have a hard time truly embracing Terminator: Dark Fate when this basically is the exact same story we’ve seen so many times before. The new code of paint looks good; Mackenzie Davis is a bonafide action hero, Gabriel Luna is a solid Robert Patrick and the action is often fun. But it’s unavoidable to see how little new the plot has, in spite of some valiant attempts at some modern…

    “I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch”

    Yesterday, I saw Jaws for the umptieth time and it struck me that it was not only a perfect movie, but also a perfect viewing.

    I don't exactly know why, but to watch Steven Spielberg's breakthrough yesterday was such a perfect fit. The pleasant breeze of the summer have just started to crawl in and the last few days have meant…
