OCEAN’S 8

OCEAN’S 8 and TAG — I saw these back to back (yeah, I know — totally wasted evening). I feel they belong together here because the first is a totally lackluster caper film with an all-female cast and the other is a totally dumb bro film with an all-male cast. OCEAN’S 8 was the more engaging (marginally) of the two but suffers from the same problem as OCEAN’S 13: we simply don’t care. You can double down on Don’t Care re TAG. Don’t waste your time. FF=4 for each.

ALIEN VS PREDATOR 2

Why do I do this to myself?  Well, unlike many people, I didn’t hate the first, which I thought had a pretty decent story.  But this…I had no idea what was going on.  Maybe because most of it was shot by the light of a 10-watt bulb.  The Alien and the Predator are pretty cool monsters, but you couldn’t see them here.  Don’t bother trying.
