"Independence Day: Resurgence" -- Cheesy, Fun But Not Enough 


The sequel to 1996’s “Independence Day” invades theatres near you! This one’s called “Resurgence” but alas, Will Smith, who became a major blockbuster star when the original came out chose to not fight aliens again. Apparently, “After Earth” is the last of his out-of-this-world films. But Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum return. This one even has a woman president (Sela Ward) and a gay couple! Times have changed. But is the sequel worth your time and money? Take a look at my “Independence Day: Resurgence” movie review.

No, "Finding Dory" Is Not As Good as "Finding Nemo!" 


Midway through "Finding Dory," as soon as Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) embarks on a mission to find her parents (Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton), I came to the realization that the $200-million sequel was carefully crafted not because there was a compelling story to be told rather due to purely economic reasons. In my humble opinion, in the Pixar universe, "Finding Dory" is a sequel on par with "Cars 2" or "Monsters University" and less with the stellar "Toy Story" sequels. Here's why:



Box-Office Update: Yup, "Finding Dory" opens with an all-time record debut for an animated flick with $136.2M. That's a lot of fish food!
