The “Thumbs Up” Group
Doctor Strange (4.5 / 5) REVIEW
The best comic book movie of 2016 so far.
Deepwater Horizon (3.5 / 5) REVIEW
The Accountant (3.5 / 5) REVIEW
Kevin Hart: Now What? (3.5 / 5) REVIEW
Another trio of better than average films with almost nothing in common. One isn’t even really a movie.
The “Thumbs Eh” Group
The Birth of a Nation (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
Snowden (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
Ouija: Origin of Evil (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
Storks (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
The Wild Life (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
The Girl on the Train (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
Keeping Up With the Joneses (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2.5 / 5) REVIEW
Mediocrity ruled the end of summer and beginning of fall and this list of 9 very average offerings help support that claim.
The “Thumbs Down” Group
Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (2 / 5) REVIEW
Bridget Jones’s Baby (2 / 5) REVIEW
Blair Witch (2 / 5) REVIEW
Two unnecessary sequels and some kid’s fare that is relatively harmless yet inevitably boring.
Masterminds (1.5 / 5) REVIEW
Max Steel (1.5 / 5) REVIEW
The Disappointments Room (1.5 / 5) REVIEW
For one reason or another, all three of these films sat on the shelf somewhere which delayed their release. All three of these films also proved why they should have stayed on the fence.
When the Bough Breaks (1 / 5) REVIEW
Inferno (1 / 5) REVIEW
The worst two movies of the last cycle. When the Bough Breaks tried to tap into the success of combining a low budget with an all-black cast. Financially, it worked. The movie? Not so much. Inferno went back to the Robert Langdon well once too often and helped produce the worst Tom Hanks movie I can remember.
