Resident Evil: the Final Chapter is basically watching a dead horse being beaten on screen. The editing is awful. You can't talk tell what the hell is happening most of the time. The story is nothing special and it brings nothing new to the table.

War for the Planet of the Apes was disappointing. The plot is dismal, the villains are two dimensional, and the story is ludicrous. As a whole it is the worst of the new ape movies. I wouldn't recommend it unless you are really curious.

Captain Fantastic is a damn good movie. Exceptional cast, great acting, compelling story. It makes you believe that drama and good movies can still exist in Hollywood today. See it if you can. It might make you laugh, cry, and think on your own family dynamic.

Jackie has talent behind it but the performances don't make the subject compelling. Considering it is about Jackie you'd think they could make a movie about more than just the death of JFK and his funeral. It is alright if you are interested but it seems to gloss over a lot.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is pretty mediocre. It should have been called JK Rowling and the Quest for More Money. The story is poorly developed and villians doubly so. Sadly the CG effects look ridiculous. Plus, they waste decent actors like Colin Farrell and Ezra Miller.

Hacksaw Ridge is okay at best. Some of the effects are good and the casting is okay for the most part. The lame aspects are that then training parts border on cliche and a lot of the soldier dialogue seems like it had been taken from other WWII movies. Plus, casting Vince Vaughn as drill Sergeant is such a bizarre choice that it baffles me. It is fine if you are curious but it is a long sit and it really isn't as compelling as it could have been.
