Oh, if only Freed had built upon the promise of Fifty Shades Darker. Instead of getting better, it took a step back and mimicked Fifty Shades of Grey in lack of coherent plot. Pity, as Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have developed a sweet chemistry, and the script delights in poking fun at itself. For completists only. Grade: D+

But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk.

In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji.

What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – Jumanji plays you. They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…
No spoilers here, this was an awesome episode in the series and if you’re a fan of Star Wars, you will not be disappointed. Last Jedi picks up the story line with Rey (Daisy Ridley) recruiting a reluctant Luke Skywalker to rejoin the resistance fight and be the spark that lights the fire of the rebellion. All the while, the First Order led by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) & The Supreme Chancellor Snoke, are carrying out a relentless campaign to snuff out the rebellion & Luke. The creature creations, the sets, the story-line, and even some good laughs carry you through this episode with a series of adventures giving you answers to some old questions, but not answering them all to keep you hooked for Episode IX. The 3rd act will have you on baited breath and assuming that every pivotal sequence your witnessing will be abruptly cut-off to rope you in for Episode IX. I could finish that thought, but no spoilers – get your tickets now! A- #starwarslastjediBaltimore #Iwanttobeajedi

Murder On The Orient Express (2017), B-. Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in this reboot of the Agatha Christie classic showcasing the whip-smart and renowned Detective Hercule Poirot. Poirot is reluctantly pulled into a murder investigation aboard a train ferrying 12 eclectic and somewhat eccentric personalities of which any one could be the culprit. The film feels good, and it looks good especially the cinematography with the train in motion. The performances are solid, and I admit I had no idea that was Daisy Ridley of Star Wars fame until the credits rolled, even though I knew she was cast in the film. Branagh was capable as Poirot but short of David Souchet from the original. Derek Jacobi made me smile again with his accent ability – that man deserves a lifetime Oscar before he sunsets and I love that he and Branagh circled back to work together after 26 years! (1991’s Dead Again – one of my top 10 American films). Murder/Orient starts full of mystery and wonder but culminates in a slightly lesser version of the original. You’ll love the performances but none are Oscar worthy. Weekend box office prediction: $21 million.
