The Marine 5: Battleground is yet another bad entry into a franchise that should not even ever been a franchise in the first place. The problem is, this movie doesn’t fall in the so bad, it’s good territory and thus is a slog to sit through till the bitter and predictable end.

I’m not exactly sure why Underworld: Blood Wars was necessary and especially with the knowledge a sixth one is in the works, but as much as I disliked the previous entries (finding Awakening tolerable apparently, though I can’t remember one damn thing from it), this is probably the worst of the bunch.

Split is a well done, highly suspense-filled psychological thriller from M. Night Shyamalan who seems to have returned to form; though not without the incredible performance(s) from James McAvoy who I really hope is remembered come awards season.

Never Too Young to Die has received a cult following over the past 30 years with my first understanding only a year or two back when it was featured on Red Letter Media’s “Best of the Worst” series. Seeing it in its entirety for myself, it certainly has earned the bad its good moniker.

Why Him? is certainly not very good but harmless enough and perhaps worth a watch if only for Bryan Cranston and even James Franco who at least were somewhat entertaining to behold as they both appeared to be having fun.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is a thoroughly entertaining addition to the DC Animated line-up and a step forward from some of their recent lackluster titles, a leap above The Killing Joke and compared with the DC Animated Universe ones, this is probably top five (without looking at my rankings).

War on Everyone certainly caught me by surprise and it is in apt title in a few ways. This is also one of the more un-PC movies I’ve come across and thanks to that, as well as the performances from Skarsgård and Peña, at least makes it memorable even when the pacing was off.

Hidden Figures is a delightful film telling a generally unknown story about three black women who were crucial to the USA’s journey to space; it features three solid performances led way by Taraji P. Henson.
