After a couple of slow months, last month was back up around average. Here’s the list of films I saw this month with my MoviePass (which would’ve been two more had MoviePass not been acting up, ended up having to sign up for AMC A-List so I could see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and Dog Days):
1.) The Equalizer 2
The sequel to the 2014 that was based on the 1980s TV show, The Equalizer 2 continues the story of Robert McCall (Denzel Washington) in his quest to right the wrongs in the world both big and small. This time around besides working as a Lyft driver, he’s also “helping out the little guy” while at the same time avenging the death of a friend and former co-worker in the CIA. Interesting that this was the first ever sequel that Washington has ever done. Overall I liked the film. I did enjoy the secondary stories more than the main story but overall it was pretty good.
2.) Mission: Impossible Fallout
The sixth edition to the film franchise, Fallout looks at the impact that the previous film Rogue Nation left as Ethan Hunt is off fighting the remnants of the Syndicate, now known as “The Apostles”. I love this series and feel like the films have gotten progressively better with each one and this is no exception. Definitely one of my favorite films of 2018
3.) Christopher Robin
Winnie the Pooh meets Hook. That’s probably the best way to describe this film. Christopher Robin is grown up, married and has a daughter. He also has a tough job that has seemingly taken the joy of life out of him. And Pooh and the gang have to remind Christopher Robin about what’s most important in life. I enjoyed the film. It was kinda weird to see this film after seeing Goodbye Christopher Robin which told somewhat the story of the real life Christopher Robin Milne. This one of course is far from that. This is very much the fictional Christopher Robin growing up. it’s worth checking out if you enjoy the Pooh stories.
