Avengers, Infinity War (in theaters this week!) No spoilers for the MCU faithful. I was pleasantly surprised the film could squeeze that many heroes into a storyline and still manage to give the viewer a sufficient helping of each including backstory. This has to be the most ambitious MCU film to date in terms of effects and sheer firepower on display. Josh Brolin (Thanos) is a great villain who is surprisingly not one-sided. Be prepared for an ‘Empire Strikes Back’ type ending where you are both elated at the possibilities for the storyline while simultaneously being a bit depressed. For the diehards, there is one post-credit sequence and it’s all the way at the end of the credits but it’s worth waiting for as it caps the film off and gives a great teaser to what’s coming next. B+ (Weekend Box office prediction: $265M domestic)
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson stars in the latest movie based on a video game BIG SCREEN BLOCKBUSTER, “Rampage”.
Taking queues from monsters movies of years past and the video game of the same name (and a classic 80’s game at that) you have a movie that delivers lots of destruction, lots of ‘The Rock’, and a thin yet fun to watch plot. Grade: 3 out of 5 stars

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+

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. When they discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. 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
