Terminator: Dark Fate

I don’t understand why this movie exists. It’s a perfectly fine action trifle and it’s perhaps the best of the recent “Terminator” films. But was there a great thirst for another “Terminator” installment?

The Boys, season 2

Season two of “The Boys” carried on the bloody and silly nonsense of season one, which is good because that combination worked well.

The Boys, season 1

I held off on watching “The Boys” because something about the aesthetic rubbed me the wrong way.

Knives Out

This movie is a little long–it could have been 10 minutes shorter–but it’s a fun and twisty murder mystery with lots of good performances.

“The Spy Who Dumped Me” is a rare R-rated comedy.

There are parts of this movie that are quite good: Tessa Thompson, Michael B. Jordan, and Sylvester Stallone all give strong performances.

Jack Ryan, season 2

It’s been a very long time since I read a Tom Clancy novel, but my take on Jack Ryan is that he was always the smart-but-reluctant analyst who, by nature of his strong moral compass, found himself amid action (but maybe I’m wrong – or, maybe Ryan evolved into something else in the novels I didn’t read).
