The Good:

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? – I was finally able to get around to a couple documentaries that people have been taking about on different podcasts, Three Identical Strangers and Won’t You Be My Neighbor. Both were good but only one was loved and it was the one that focused on the lovable Fred Rogers. Won’t You Be My Neighbor is a deep dive into Fred Rogers life and his time with PBS. It’s a heartwarming movie that may need to be accompanied by with a box of tissues. Such a wonderful man.

Grade A

The Bad:

The Meg – Unfortunately this honor must be bestowed upon… The Meg. Yikes. Now, I didn’t expect it to be the second coming of Jaws but I also expected more than Sharknado with a better budget and imagery. No denying that this movie is beautifully shot at times, but theres also no denying this movie is extremely corny as well. Now, unlike Skyscraper… The Meg owns it. Knows what it is and has fun with it. Unfortunately, it still didn’t work for me at all.

Grade C-

The Old or Surprising:

Uncle Drew – I didn’t have high expectations from the movie based off a TV commercial, staring former and current NBA players… but i did expect it to be fun. The jokes were flat and could be seen coming a mile away. I didn’t hate it because again, I had low expectations but I don’t recommend this, regardless of my generous grade.

Grade C
