Mini Movie Reviews: Bulk Hit No 47

Man Up!
This seemed like the recipe for a better-than-average romantic comedy.  It kind of was -- it was slightly better.  The script is more authentic...but it is so vulgar and crass I wouldn't watch it a second time or recommend it.
The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
This wasn't bad...but it's pretty forgettable; if you asked me to tell you the story now, I couldn't at all.  There's a good guy?  And a bad guy?  And a girl, I'm pretty sure there's a girl.  And a nice or fast car?  Yeah...nothing you wouldn't know yourself from the cover.
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation
This is what it is -- impossible action with Tom Cruise.  This is what I expected and therefore I enjoyed it.
Mirror Mirror
Nice to look at and not a lot more.
Playing for Keeps
Skip it.  It's not great, even if you like some of these names.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
This delivered the goods.  It has some truly magnificent blockbuster moments and tips its hat so nicely to the previous films. 
This was awesome!!!  I did not think it would be awesome.  I was wrong.  So I can now say that of the Marvel movies I only really like Iron Man AND Ant-Man.
The Intern
Pretty good.  Home-date-night viewing and we both found "pretty good."

The Martian
Loved it.  Bought it.  Easily my favourite of this bulk hit.
Alex & Eve

Think Like A Man
Pretty funny and a better-than-usual moral for a rom com ensemble movie.
The Duff
Not one of the better high school movies -- and admittedly "better" still usually means "okay" in this field of relativity.  A fair amount of cringing and not as many laughs as I was hoping for.  Skippable.
