You can probably tell from the way I’ve been posting these Under the Dome reviews on Thursdays that I’ve been getting slightly burnt out on reviewing every episode. On that score, I’m a bit relieved to be churning out my final season 1 review for the CBS Summer series. This finale gave me some mixed emotions. You can read my thoughts below but be warned SPOILERS WITHIN…
- F9, 2021 - ★★★½ June 23, 2021Full review forthcoming but it never ceases to amaze me that this franchise started with a Point Break rip-off, got to the brink of becoming a straight-to-video loose sequel machine and then somehow became a huge blockbuster spy action series with super ridiculous and silly set pieces (I will always laugh when a car breaks a person's fall like a pillow […]
- In The Heights, 2021 - ★★★★ June 15, 2021Me, watching this alone in my apartment in Indianapolis with my cat: "Heh, only in New York.
- Prometheus, 2012 - ★★★ June 2, 2021Some of the dumbest characters imaginable, but Ridley Scott doing sci-fi and playing in his Alien universe is just so much fun and really visually appealing.
- A Quiet Place Part II, 2020 - ★★★½ May 27, 2021Very cool tension that separates itself from the original often enough while still retaining the novelty that made the first one so enjoyable. The prologue showing the beginning of it all was well done. The addition of Cillian Murphy to the cast is great. Like the first one, it ends way too abruptly.

I think it's a pretty boring trend and making villains into antiheroes just really does nothing for me.On that note, Cruella is slightly better than I expected it to be. Emma Stone's performance is a lot of fun and, although some of the humor falls super flat, the supporting […]
- Inspector Ike, 2020 - ★★★★★ May 17, 2021This brand of comedy is so definitely my jam. Really enjoyed it.
- F9, 2021 - ★★★½ June 23, 2021
