The Meg

★☆☆☆ – (2018) – A disgraced rescue diver attempts to save a deep sea crew from a massive shark. A long, rambling chore that isn’t unlike any other cliche riddled SyFy channel monster movie, only this one somehow garnered a massive budget, none of which focused on the script. A colossal bore with vacant characters and bland action.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

★½☆☆ – (2017) – A woman who’s been battling a corporate viral outbreak for many years returns to the epicenter of her problems to end all the madness. Follows the same formula as the previous entries by placing computerized technology over any human traits. A jumbled mess that has no flow, no involvement, and no reassurance that this is actually the end.

Underworld: Blood Wars

★½☆☆ – (2016) – A vampire in a shiny leather coat aims to stop her kind from fighting werewolves in shiny leather coats. Yet another preposterous, pompous, and pretentious entry in a never-ending series that continues to take itself too seriously despite a severe lack of originality. Bloated CGI mumbo jumbo for an audience that couldn’t possible be asking for more entries.

The Bubble

Bubble, The

★★☆☆ – (1966) – A married couple and their newborn become trapped in a town that’s capped by a dome. The set-up has intriguing moments that make you wonder why the town’s citizens are robotic, but the theme becomes monotonous in a hurry. Mostly illogical and ends with confusion.

Poltergeist (2015)

Poltergeist 4

★★☆☆ – (2015) – A suburban family loses their youngest daughter to the angry forces within their haunted house. A goofy, teen friendly ghost story that never dares touch the non-PC heights of the original, and thereby turns itself into a safe, polished joke. Not awful, but never frightening or innovative.
