Taken 3 (2015)

Rated: PG-13 - Runtime: 109 min
tesg's Rating: Two and one half stars (out of four)

Basically a "Taken" adaptation of "The Fugitive".  It's a rare recent instance of an action flick that actually ties up the plot points pretty neatly.  It's not great, but it's not a bad way to kill an afternoon.

Forrest Whitaker should have had more to do.

Inherent Vice (2014)

Rated: R - Runtime: 148 min
tesg's Rating: Three and one half stars (out of four)

Imagine "The Big Lebowski" done as a noir with the drug content turned up to 11.

Yeah, pretty much.
