Kong Skull Island is the perfect mental escape, although emotionally empty, if you are in need of some CGi spectacle before the summer officially kicks off.

Logan is by far the best of the X-Men films and sets a new bar for the future of solo, character-driven comic book flicks.

‘Drifter’ meanders through its 85-minute runtime with characters that aren’t defined, in a universe with even less structure, barreling towards a hazy objective quickly discarded.
