Incredibles 2 (2018)

Rated: PG - Runtime: 118 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

This is exactly the sequel everyone wants. It's familiar without being a rehash, it's got that whole modern atomic age look you want from Bird, it's seriously funny at times (if Jack Jack is on the screen, you're probably laughing), the action sequences are good, and the story is solid.

I picked the villain pretty early on, but that's about as big a complaint as I got.

Ocean's 8

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 110 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

The best part is the ending. The build-up to get there is sooo boring. They follow the "11" formula a little TOO closely but forgot to add the cleverness. Something was just missing there. So it's one of those "Yeah, I've seen this already and it was better the first time" type deals.

The wrap-up, though, was pretty great.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 135 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

Remember when Star Wars movies were fun? Oh wait, right, that was only the first one. Well now here's a second one. Sort of. It's a failed heist caper followed by a make-up heist with way too many plot twists and not quite as much humor as I'd hoped for, though it has its moments.
