Skyscraper (2018)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 102 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

You KNEW this was going to be ridiculous, and the problem is, it's ridiculous in a completely serious way.  For a movie like this to succeed, it needs to have a certain amount of cheese and silliness.  This movie lacks that.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 118 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

It's probably helpful to re-watch the first movie and maybe the most recent Captain America movie to be up to speed, but this is still a fun couple of hours with a lot of laughs.

Won't You Be My Neighbor (2018)

Rated: Not Rated - Runtime: 94 min
tesg's Rating: Three stars (out of four)

When I posted my star rating on social media, I immediately was asked by different people "Why not four stars? What's wrong with it?" 

Nothing.  Nothing at all.  It's a fine documentary about an extraordinary man.  It's just not an extraordinary documentary.  It could have aired on PBS without a theatrical run.

But the reaction is a testament to how the memory of Fred Rogers is treasured.  He loved the world almost unconditionally.  And the world still loves him back.
