Quick hits from my Rotten Tomatoes opinions:

Entertaining but there is something lacking when you always know it isn’t headed anywhere but to the next movie over and over.

Skyscraper

Badly written but a lot of fun.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Really well done engrossing story. Only weakness is the ending, which exists mostly to setup Sicario 3 etc. Not a good omen.

Blockers

Blockers(2018)

Painfully bad. Badly written.

The First Purge

Easily the worst in the series.

Hotel Artemis

Better than I expected, pretty good action movie and Jody Foster is terrific

Tag

Tag(2018)

Moves quickly, good dialogue, dumb fun with a slight message

Hereditary

I think critics have lost their minds. Slow, not scary, almost laughably camp. You have got to be kidding!

Overboard

Overboard(2018)
½

a remake that doesn’t even matchup to the original

Ready Player One

Kind of routine actually, more people, less games, a nice ending.

A Quiet Place

Just about perfect. Great chills and so well done. Ought to win awards

Unsane

Unsane(2018)

Forget the fact it was made by using an I phone. Who cares. Brilliant movie, big time enjoyable.

7 Days in Entebbe

No real need for a remake but this is competent, except for the decision to introduce Bob Fosse type dancers into crucial action scenes. Maybe the most moronic decision I’ve ever seen in a bigger budget movie.
