I saw this on display at the store and had completely forgotten it was a thing.  I'm not surprised it was terribly, wasn't it also held back?  Feels like a movie that might have been held back.

Not sure about that. I read a critics review, trying to be kind, by saying this might play out better when it gets to the the TV. I understand the thought, but don't think about that much anymore.

Train To Busan

https://youtu.be/pyWuHv2-Abk


Out of the blue, Train popped in the queue. I was pleasantly surprised at how well I liked it. Essentially it's World War Z... on a train. Good story, decent CGI and paced well. Some of the more scary and vicious zombies I've seen in awhile.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back 2 Stars

https://youtu.be/ZlfmmiD62fo

Wow... just mediocre at best. Every scene is cookie cutter and we've seen a million times before. Devoid of interest. Cruise needs to drop this series. The first was ok, this just totally wasted my time.

Part of me is disappointed that it's not "Never Reach Back."  Every title should have the word reach in there.

Meskada 3 stars

https://youtu.be/ZRHovcAkNh8

3 stars for 90% of a pretty decent low budget FBI investigation of a child mistakenly killed over a simple robbery in another town.

The ending reallllllllly sucked.

Matchstick Men 3 Stars

https://youtu.be/zDoOdd00nHM

I've heard about this film and that's about my extent of my interest.  With absolutely nothing on, we just put this on and rolled the dice. My first surprise was to see Ridley Scott directing. I've liked Sam Rockwell and he didn't disappoint. Nicolas Cage, meh, he's a little better than usual. I guess I rather liked it because of it's unpredictability. It did go on a little long, but overall a solid entertaining film.

Desierto 2 Stars

https://youtu.be/VEt8Mhya3vI

I've seen trailers way back for this, eventually giving up on it. Then it pops up at the library and I'm surprised... it's far less than I was expecting. It doesn't get any more simplistic. A lone Rogue, yet psychotic gunman, hunts illegals crossing the border. Very little dialog, with nothing but cat and mouse survival. It gets pretty repetitive. You also know how it's going to play out. Very little surprises.

The Girl On The Train   (0 Stars)

Good lord... an incredibly dull Lifetime wannabe flick. It starts off slow and just never does anything of interest.
