Escape Room: Tournament of Champions: Movie Review

Some insane action, but interesting rooms and compelling characters.

The premise of Escape Room works really well for a unique, original film. The first one pitted six strangers with one common link against one another in an unknowing game of life or death. That premise was really elevated by the focus on the psychology of the characters and their interactions. This sequel has forced six winners of past escape rooms together, including our two main heroes from the original.   2021

Directed by: Adam Robitel

Screenplay by: Will Honley, Maria Melnik
Daniel Tuch, and Oren Uziel

The Kissing Booth 3: Movie Review

Unpleasant, unromantic and not fun.
The Kissing Booth 3 is the stupidest instalment of the Kissing Booth trilogy, and this is coming from someone who kind of enjoyed the first two, but whatever charm there used to be is long gone. I hope the filmmakers and actors enjoy their Netflix money, because the audience isn’t going to. In other words, if you haven’t started the series yet, you don’t have to worry about finishing it.   2021

Directed by: Vnce Marcello

Screenplay by: Vince Marcello and Jay S. Arnold

Starring: Joey King, Jacob Elordi
