People who added this item 158 Average listal rating (160 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.8
An engaging, brutally entertaining, and masterful sequel, that builds upon the world set up in the first film, in an intensely satisfying way, resulting in an even greater film, and one of the best straight-up action films of the decade.

Free Fire (2016)
It may not be the most original film in the world (the film is clearly inspired by "Reservoir Dogs"), and it may have a few nitpicks, but this minimalistic, and well directed, contained action film, is extremely entertaining, slick, and successfully stretches its seemingly paper-thin plot, to feature length, with relative ease.

Wonder Woman (2017)
Bright, colorful, and old-fashioned, this marks the first truly great DCEU movie, with Gal Gadot making a truly fantastic lead, incredible action sequences, and a great script helping to lead the way.

Logan (2017)
Perhaps not the next "Dark Knight," but really close, this is a dark, brutal, and entertaining film, that is a much different and refreshing take on the superhero genre, with great performances, a really good (if slightly flawed) script, and spectacular, and bloody, action fight sequences.

This film is an arthouse psychological thriller, mostly to its advantage, but sporadically to its detriment, but this film is unconventionally terrifying, well acted, and beautiful looking.

James Gunn tries to make lightning strike twice, and is mostly successful, even if the 2nd act kind of meanders for a little bit, but this is an exciting, entertaining, and fun movie, which boasts both some of the MCU's best antagonists, and climax.

Fast paced humor, often hilarious, and beautifully animated superhero parody, this film doesn't quite reach the same level of pathos as the previous LEGO movie, but is nevertheless a fantastic and welcome addition, and hopefully the start of a surprisingly great franchise.

Get Out (2017)
A great reinvention of a classic story, twisted on its head, this is a great horror outing from Jordan Peele that is creative, well acted, and mostly smart, with only some nitpicks holding it back from being phenomenal.

Nowhere near as memorable, or as meaningful as the first film, but feels like a natural continuation of the story, with a well written script, creative scenes, and offers a satisfactory conclusion, without feeling cheap.

Split (2016)
The film occasionally gets a bit ridiculous, but Shyamalan's haunting atmosphere, and James McAvoy's magnetic performance(s), keep the film surprisingly grounded, resulting in a frightening, intelligent, and most shocking of all, even subtle horror film.

The first act is a touch too confusing, however, once the film gets off the ground, it is consistently visually stunning, complex, and gripping, and boasts an incredible performance by Scarlett Johansson.

It may seem like the franchise is starting to run out of ideas, but for fans of the four previous films, this is an exciting and fun adventure that boasts some great and inventive action sequences, amazing visuals, and feels complete.

Aside from some minor nitpicks, this is a powerful, well written and well acted war drama, that is genuinely moving without being manipulative, and offers Kate Mara's best performance to date.

The fears of the absence of necessity are not completely sated, but the film is entertaining, and beautiful looking, with some changes that work and some that don't, and as such does sadly pale in comparison to the 1991 classic, but nevertheless still manages to charm and endear.

Works as a callback to the monster movies of the past, and as a nostalgic escapist adventure, the film is entertaining popcorn fun, that is slightly hurt by some poor editing choices, and predictability.

The film is occasionally unforgivable with its schmaltz and manipulation, but for the most part, it's a nuanced and well thought out human drama, that can be both poignant, as well as entertaining.

The Wall (2017)
The film thinks it's more interesting than it is, sometimes characters make implausible decisions to engineer the premise, and there are some missed opportunities, especially with the ending, but overall, this is a good premise, that is decently stretched, is very intense, gripping, and well directed and acted.

This film probably won't do that much for those not already convinced, and there are a few distracting technical problems, but this is easily the best film out of PureFlix's studio, with good performances, a good script, a nice flow, some interesting theological musings, and is actually (for the most part) pretty well directed.

The film is an "Alien" clone, and while it won't be well remembered years down the road, it is an intense and gripping film, elevated by good visuals, good performances and some well thought out scares.

Before I Fall (2017)
This "Groundhog Day" meets "The Lovely Bones" mash up will offer an actually decent story, mostly to teenagers, with even a nice thought-provoking message, and some decent characterization, though it does little to stand out in the sea of teen melodramas, or offering any skeptics of the genre a reason to give it a shot.

The film's script does little to stand out from the other caper comedies of the past, including its source material, but the three leads help elevate the material into a charming, and amusing, even if not particularly funny, film.

Fist Fight (2017)
You won't find realism here, and the film isn't quite as funny as it could've been, but at the very least this is an amusing, well acted, and quirky social satire that doesn't take full advantage of its premise, but doesn't squander it either.

Baywatch (2017)
This film is a bit too long, not every gag works, and the film could've been far more goofy, but the film manages to be guiltily enjoyable due to some funny scenes, great chemistry between the characters, and some really fun action scenes.

Sometimes offer up some intense scenes, and the last 15 minutes are really good, but the characters are poorly defined, and sometimes act stupidly, the film isn't really that scary, and there's a lot of padding to stretch it to feature length.

The Boss Baby (2017)
Alec Baldwin is actually pretty funny, and there are some creative moments, particularly in the second half, but the film's internal logic is inconsistent and confusing, it relies too much on toilet humor, and sometimes the meshing of childish humor and adult humor did not gel together.

The film's premise could've lent itself to some decent comedic scenarios, but as is, this is a serviceable, harmless, if predictable, sitcom-esque comedy, that has some laughs, but not enough to warrant a recommendation for anyone outside of its target audience.

The Mummy (2017)

Sleepless (2017)
A standard action film premise, with nothing added to make it stand out, the film is pretty dull for an action film, with actors that look disinterested, by-the-numbers and sloppily edited action scenes, and massive plot conveniences.

The only thing the movie has going for it is that some of the ideas presented could work in a horror film, but it's squandered here, being occupied with stupid characters, cliché-ridden, and isn't anywhere near clever enough to be scary.

CHIPS (2017)
Lacking any tension, mystery, or even sense of fun, this puerile film's biggest sin isn't the film's poor, unsubtle direction, via Dax Shepard, or it's overt crassness, but that the film doesn't land a single solid laugh, with tired, uninspired, and woefully predictable gags. The only saving grace, is that the film isn't as obnoxious as it could've been.

Kidnap (2017)
Laughable, ridiculous, and completely tension-free, this film relies on both the heroes and the villains acting stupidly and implausible contrivances, contains some poor direction (including some bizarre artistic choices), and is painfully padded to artificially bring the film to feature length.
