As the summer mission to see as many movies as possible sailed on, the Meg snuck up, making the biggest splash at the domestic box office this weekend, leaving Mission Impossible: Fallout to fall a bit out of synch with audiences as they continued to make all things possible in that action-oriented world. Taking a gentler approach, Christopher Robin continued to charm the young and the young at heart among us. Slenderman was more chilling than charming while the BlacKkKlansman recruited a nice crowd into joining Spike Lee’s latest endeavor.
With the weeks sailing by at a rapid pace, what have we accomplished during our Summer Cinematic Mission? Well, we’ve certainly contributed to Cruise’s hero crusade, found nostalgia through an old albeit live-action friend, tangled with a 70-foot shark (making us grateful for those “cinematic seas”), found some happy in a horror film and humor in the newest Klan.
Happily, The End has yet to be written!
