    Terminator: Dark Fate

    ★★½

    Terminator: Dark Fate
    or
    Planes, Trains and Automobiles 2 (which also describe the story pretty good)

    Mackenzie Davis is great. Sadly no one else is worth mentioning unless you count the unstoppable "Meh" in the room. No career making bad guys like the two first movies which this is a sequel to. It ignores all but the two first Terminator movies. I wish I could accomplish that...

    Lots of inappropriate fan service, as expected. Horrible editing but some of the coherent action is ok. No sense of direction, space or time.

    It's amazingly the third-best Terminator movie. That's good I guess.

    ★½

    This could have been an ok disaster movie spoof or maybe do with some zombies, terminators, volcanos, flying laser sharks or even more kids in peril, or all combined, and put the Rock in it so it gets a hint of charm. Use Kristoffer Joner as "Marty" the funny sidekick professor genius. That would be a more fun challenge for him. Who would have thought that Kristoffer Joner would become the Norwegian Bruce Willis?

    It does succeed in some ways…

    I love murder mysteries but there are not enough grey cells involved to modernize or improve upon previous attempts on this classic story.

    A competently directed movie with a very boring script. Misplaced humor and an impressive line of stars rather effectively wasted. There is something off with Kenneth Branagh portrait of Hercule Poirot and I don't mean the ridiculous mustache. I usually enjoy his work both in front and behind the camera, but this is sadly another misfire. Mostly because it's so boring.

    ★★★★½

    Along with the well known "The Shawshank Redemption" this is one of the few really great Stephen King adaptations.

    Impeccable script. Everything makes sense witch is a rarity these days. William Goldman did a marvelous job with the adaptation. I don't remember how much was changed from Stephen King's book, I've read it many years ago and it was good, but I've always considered the movie better. I think I found the book boring in some parts, the movie is…
