Star Trek Beyondis part heady sci-fi that deconstructs the essence of the franchise, and part big dumb action movie thanks to director Justin Lin. All kinds of fans will find different things to like here. 7.5/10 and a more full review here.
The Infiltratoris the story of Robert Mazur who went undercover to follow the money of Pablo Escobar’s cartel in the 80’s. A true story! And great acting, but the pacing kinda drags. Adam gave it 5.5/10, Andy gave it a straight 5.
Ghostbusters! We’ve waited so long and were not disappointed. No one’s childhood was ruined. Everything is great, especially Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Stick around for the aftercredits sequence, and see it in 3D on Imax if you can! Adam calls it a perfect 10. Andy was bugged by a couple of pieces of fanservice and product placement, but otherwise it’s perfect: 9/10.
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates earns its R-rating, but its four leads are so charismatic it’s hard to dislike them, even if they’re being sociopathic douches. Very funny, and very wrong. Andy gives it 7/10
The Secret Life of Petsis a bulletproof concept, even if its plot is a little formulaic. Kevin Hart as Snowball the bunny steals the movie. Adam gives it 8/10 and Andy is at 7.5/10.
