Pacific Rim Uprising is fun, even if it doesn’t quite recapture the surprising delight of the original. It has its low moments, but it keeps chugging along despite them and makes up for those missteps.
‘Love, Simon’ is funny and if you’re looking for a coming of age tale (and a gay one at that!) that isn’t too trope-y or tragic you are in for a treat. It’s a fun teenage comedy, and you’ll find yourself caring for all of these kids.
Tomb Raider is a fun enough action-adventure flick with a strong female hero who goes through an actual arc from being a bit of a screwup to a motivated adventurer.
I highly recommend taking a journey ‘In Her Skin’ with this novel. Sit back and enjoy its steady thrum of mystery, suspense, and adrenaline from start to finish.
Obsidio plays out as a fitting conclusion to what has been a captivating science fiction epic. The Illuminae Files are a must-read for young adult science fiction fans — especially those looking for something wholly unique.
Pitch Perfect 3 is a fitting end to the a capella franchise which mixed humor and music in a way that captivated fans for years. But the movie also does something impressive – it reinvents the series for their final performance.
Consort of Secrets is an excellent addition to the reverse harem romance genre – the male leads are individually varied and equally compelling, leaving the reader with four romance novels for the price of one!
Companies saw a place for another low budget horror movie to turn a profit but they couldn’t be bothered enough to wait an extra month to secure that sweet Friday the 13th money. The Strangers: Prey At Night cost $5mil to make, is projected to take in $7mil opening weekend and that’s enough for them.
A Wrinkle In Time is enjoyable, unabashedly earnest and preaching good things, even if it isn’t complicated. It’s a solid kid flick with cool visuals and a heartwarming message. Just don’t expect anything exceptionally deep or game-changing.
Jonathan Roth takes kids on an adventure into space with the alien Beep and human boy Bob in ‘Too Much Space!’ — the first book in a new series for younger readers.
