Jurassic World (3.5 Stars out of 5):

This was an entertaining movie to watch, not as great as the first one, but right on par with The Lost World which I also gave the same rating to. I enjoyed the effects, the story, and the little nods that went back to the first one. All in all, a good movie that moved by at a very quick pace.

Terminator Genisys (2.5 Stars out of 5): 

Sometimes you just want to say stop. This is one of those kinds of movies. I liked the concepts and the ideas behind the story, I liked what they were trying to do with timelines, and I especially enjoyed the way they made Arnold’s age fit into the story arc. With all that good though, I still have to put a negative vibe on this one. It just didn’t measure up to what it could have been. The story became so confusing by the end that I just sat and watched the action scenes – Arnold still has it even at his age. All in all, a decent watch, but one that can and will hurt your brain by the end of it.

Inside Out (4 Stars out of 5):

Such a great movie from start to finish. It had a great story, script, animation, and voice work. It was also really funny. I can’t believe how hard I laughed in spots. Stay through the end credits because it gets even funnier there.
