Logan Lucky (2017)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 119 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

There's a joke in the movie where they refer to the heist as "Ocean's 7-11". That pretty well sums it up. It's a low-rent take on something we've seen before from the same director.

But it's brain-dead fun that has strong potential to become a classic with rednecks.

Annabelle: Creation (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 109 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

Horror movies tend to be kind of formulaic and best stand out with visuals and sound.  That's pretty much the case here.  Nothing terribly original, but the sound and visuals do a lot to make up for that.

A Ghost Story (2017)

Rated: R - Runtime: 90 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

This may be the loneliest damn ghost movie ever made.  The story is told from the ghost's perspective.  It's largely told visually, long stretches of the movie pass by with no dialogue.

Stark, lonely, and...well...hauntingly beautiful.
