The fact a movie with the cast and budget of Live By Night got dumped in the January release window should have been a sign. 3/10.

Split: Didn't really like it. Didn't hate it either. 6/10.

A Cure For Wellness is pretty bad. Dull, predictable, 30 minutes too long.

Yeah, heard it's awesome....not to be "Rotten Tomatoes Guy", but it's hard to argue with 100%....with critics...most of whom don't even like the smell of their own farts....and it's from Jordan Peele...did not see that coming.

The Batman Lego movie was pretty good if guys don't mind looking more like a creeper than usual.

The Circle - Meh. it's nice to see a movie explore how we are going to take the path towards totalitarianism proposed by Aldous Huxley where we happily do it to ourselves rather than presenting yet another Orwellian hellscape but it's way too on the nose. Comes off as a feature length really halfassed episode of Black Mirror.

Galaxy 2 is greatness...better than Galaxy 1 IMO. I laughed several times during the movie, which my son brought to my attention. Apparently it doesn't happen that often. Good stuff.
