American Assassin is basically a Reagan era action film with lackluster writing that holds back the film from being something truly memorable. With that said if you haven’t watched IT for the third time this week, American Assassin is easily the best film of the week for moviegoers.
If you are judging this as a horror, the film isn’t as tension filled as another recent movie Annabelle: Creation. With that said the movie is still enjoyable and worth a watch, especially seeing what we dealt with the last few weeks. IT is a good movie on its own, as a horror film, you may want to hold your judgment for the sequel to give it fair judgment.
In conclusion, Disney Channel Movies had a place in your heart if you were around at the right time. I recommend going back and watching the films yourself, i’m sure you can find a semi-legal site that has every film in question and more. You can’t recreate what once was, you can only relive it.
Birth of the Dragon only scratches the surface of the life of Bruce Lee and the biggest crime here is that the runtime doesn’t allow a greater story to be told. With that said the film is fine and is at least enjoyable, but if you are looking for a more in-depth story about the battle these two had in the bowels of the Bay Area, you are better off doing your own research.
Logan Lucky is a good movie, the cast has a great time playing their roles and it shows. The problem is the film is not very original and very clichéd. The story becomes way too convenient in order for everything to work out and takes away from the risk of the heist. That doesn’t mean you won’t have a good time watching it because you will, and perhaps you learn a thing or two about NASCAR when it’s all said and done…like why you don’t watch it.
Fans of The Conjuring will see many Easter Eggs in the film that ties much of the series together and brings us back to square one. Annabelle: Creation is a very entertaining horror film and if you can overlook a lot of plot induced stupidity, there is a great time to have here.
