The Equalizer 2 improves on the original

Rating: ««« out of ««««

Running Time: 121 minutes

To be frank, I wasn’t a fan of the 2014 update of The Equalizer, at least not in the way it was intended. This reviewer found it to be bloodthirsty, with the central character killing his foes in an almost gleeful manner and in the most violent ways possible (if...

Rating: «« out of ««««

Running Time: 102 minutes

It’s unfortunate that even when an original movie arrives in theaters, its inspirations are so blatant that it hardly feels like anything new or original. Such is the case with Skyscraper, a summer film that purposefully attempts to fuse disaster movie fare like The Towering Inferno with the bombastic action of Die Hard. Its star is likable and the film does the best it can to try and entertain, but never builds tension or amounts to much when all is said and done.

The plot follows a former FBI agent named Will Sawyer (Dwayne Johnson). Now heading a security systems company, old friend (Pablo Schreiber) gets him an interview in...

Running Time: 125 minutes

Yep, this week I’m going to be Mr. Grumpy about the latest chapter in the Marvel Universe, Ant-Man and the Wasp. The movie certainly provides all the comic book movie story beats and action you’d expect, but the material isn’t nearly as sharp this time out. Thankfully, the talented cast of this superhero feature manage to eke out a few laughs almost purely on charm. However, there isn’t a whole lot else to recommend about this clumsy and haphazard sequel.

Set before the events of Avengers: Infinity War, Scott Lang aka Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) is about to finish a house arrest sentence after causing a big ruckus in the last...
