F9 takes the saga to a place that’s out of this world, and even that wasn’t enough to maintain my interest for all 145 minutes.
The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard didn’t do much that I’d consider worthwhile, shooting far too many blanks and frequently missing the target the few times a live round was loaded into the chamber.
Anything for Jackson is sensational. Watch it at once.
This third trip into the horrifying unknown with Ed and Lorraine Warren is a tedious bit of supernatural déjà vu, all of which has me starting to wonder if maybe it’s time for this series to give up the ghost and call it a day.
Writer and director John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place Part II hits the ground running, quickly reminding viewers how Evelyn and her children survived as well as the stakes involved if any of them takes a single misplaced step.
