    M. Night Shyamalan is a hack. Not even a moderately talented hack, but a full on Roland Emmerich/Stephen Sommers, weapons grade hack. The guy made one relatively clever movie twenty two years ago, and has spent the last two decades churning out gimmicky, mind-numbing garbage. 

    Every couple of years this asshole makes a movie and my wife says “let’s go see that movie”. I adore my wife. She’s beautiful and sweet and one of the most intelligent people I know,…

    ★★★½

    An utterly predictable example of toxic masculinity, Creed II offers nothing you haven’t already seen in other, better Rocky movies. Ultimately however, it’s more entertaining than the first film for the inclusion of two, frankly more compelling figures, Ivan and Viktor Drago. If only the father and son pair were the focus of this one instead of simply used as ancillary characters, Creed II might measure up to the first two Rocky films. As it stands however, it’s basically a less entertaining Rocky IV Knock off.

    Nebraska

    Funny, depressing, charming...Nebraska is many things, but mostly it's refreshing. Alexander Payne (Sideways, About Schmidt, The Descendants) puts his stamp on this homegrown tale of a crotchety, old man who thinks he won a million dollars in a magazine sweepstakes and the sympathetic son (Will Forte) who agrees to drive him across the country to claim the imagined prize.

    Bruce Dern plays Woody Grant, a character slightly more pathetic yet a bit more endearing than the one he played for…
