    Prey

    ★★★★½

    Just when I'd given up hope on a dying franchise, along come Prey. Opting to take a simple, yet effective approach. The entire film, like the first, takes place in the jungle. Our main focus is a young female (Amber Midthunder) who's eager to prove her hunting skills to her tribe. The story might be familiar, but it works. And it's hella entertaining.

    The Predator is given a new coat of paint and machismo. The hunting is refreshing. And the final showdown is exhilarating as all get-out. Prey might be the biggest surprise of the year honestly.

    Bullet Train

    ★★★★

    Bullet Train is the comedy we've been needing for so long. I was hearkening back the those crime underworld movies of the early 2000s like Snatch and Locked, Stocked and Two Smoking Barrels.

    ★★★★½

    I'll admit I had a similar reaction coming out of H2018 as I did Kills. BUT...the big difference here is my expectations were far lower due to my feeling settling in for the first movie. Kills surprised the hell out of me honestly, delivering punctuated kills, a brewing message throughout of mob mentality, and some pretty shocking surprises in the character department.

    Myers is such a force in Kills thanks to Courtney's fine tuned robotic stroll. The "man" is gone.…

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★½

    Zack Snyder's Justice League is a lesson in proper handling of a story, especially in terms of editing, pacing, character building, and even cinematography. It just feels more cohesive. And the 4 hour runtime only benefits it (Snyder has included convenient chapter points).

    If you're a fan of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, you will definitely be happy as it rounds out the story quite well and offers possibilities to move forward.
