'The Meg' is one of the more flat out fun movies of this summer, even if it’s also incredibly scary at times. It manages to strike an excellent balance and plays into its clichés very well. While this film may lack depth, it’s stellar cast and generally good acting makes up for the lack of originality that pierces the film.
While "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" had its fun moments, it definitely started to unravel in the third act. It’s as basic as a filler film can be, and overall isn’t very memorable. Despite being riddled with problems, it does take steps in the right direction. It’s too bad the first half hour is full of establishing shots.
Bethesda’s theme at E3 this year was “create”. They wanted to create something unique and new that nobody was expecting them to do. And while some things like Rage 2 had been leaked beforehand, there were still plenty of huge surprises Bethesda had yet to show off. I, for one, can’t wait to play Skyrim on my Etch a Sketch.
Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Switch is a hard game to recommend. As far as platformers go, it’s very challenging and often frustrating. Tropical Freeze was released at a full $60, and that’s enough to not recommend this game, considering it’s a port with only one new mode. Tropical Freeze has its moments, but in the end those moments aren’t enough to justify the countless lives you’ll lose while playing through this game. If you’re a hardcore platformer or Donkey Kong fan, you’ll love this game. Otherwise, you can pass on Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo Switch.
This is movie is for everyone who has followed the MCU. However, it’s possible to enjoy the film without seeing every single Marvel film. The important movies to see are Thor: Ragnarok, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War, and Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2. While this may seem like a massive cliffhanger, the story is actually complete from Thanos’ perspective. Despite all of its flaws, the movie ultimately succeeds and does the unthinkable; killing Spider-Man.
