2 1/2 STARS

Think Like a Man 2 - Comedy continues with Kevin Hart and friends

Edge of Tomorrow - Tom Cruise surprisingly good in this sci-fi time travel adventure

The Grand Seduction - French Canadian remake of "Doc Hollywood"

Blended - Better than expected Adam Sandler comedy with Drew Barrymore

Godzilla - Great monsters but talky acting. The Japanese monster fights prehistoric creatures out to harm the human race

Neighbors - Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne feud with fraternity boys next door

2 STARS

The Signal - Lawrence Fishburne lends his name to this sci-fi mash up.  Most people walked out saying - What the heck was that???
