Thirty years later, a sequel that was never supposed to happen according to Arsenio Hall. I'm glad they changed their mind! While a sequel that largely follows the same plot of the first, the movie does a good job of giving equal time to the new characters while giving a very healthy dose of cameos and an incredible amount of the original cast who returned. Wesley Snipes plays the goofiest, over-the-top, African warlord and he delivers. Jermaine Fowler and KiKi Layne are the breakout stars, and Leslie Jones who I usually don't care for at all did a great job with her character. Very light-hearted and the movie doesn't take itself seriously one bit, the way it should be.

Yes, the first '0' review. This movie is every bad cliche you've seen in a war or sci-fi movie, combined with the worst dialogue, a healthy dose of continuity failure, and just total shit for the rest. Year is 2524, quantum travel, colonizing planets, aliens? Sure, I can suspend disbelief to enjoy that. Every single bit after that? Nope. It's hard to describe just how bad it is, how every scene is a "what?" or "that makes no sense!" Add to that the most ridiculous armor, gliding through space wearing mostly normal clothes, and silly aliens. There were two big scenes that seemed like material was left on the cutting room floor, leaving me to wonder what even happened. One question asked in the movie several times is "was the encounter positive or negative for both sides?" Negative for me, thanks for asking


I Care A Lot (2020)

This is a crime movie, from start to finish. I had a notion of what the movie was about going into it, but it had a nice escalation moving past what I thought it was. There are no good people in this movie, not a single one; and that makes it fun and interesting. Pike is the standout star for sure, and Dinklage does a pretty good job playing a character that doesn't immediately remind you of Tyrion Lannister (a challenge to be sure). One thing I really enjoyed was trying to guess who would come out on top, how it would end, and if it would be satisfying. I guessed wrong and it was quite enjoyable. The only complaint is the movie name; it just doesn't fit to me.

An ER nurse and a career criminal are forced into an unlikely partnership in taking down a ring of corrupt cops threatening the lives of both their families. The film is a remake of the 2010 French film of the same name, originally called "Àbout portant". I suspect this is a shitty remake of the original because it is a long series of boring cliches for the most part. The only refreshing thing is that Anthony Mackey, who is muscular, gets his ass handed to him because he is a doctor and not a fighter. I'd skip this one.
