Skyscraper

Skyscraper is one of those movies where bad guys threaten to burn down a 200+ story super-skyscraper just to steal a thumb drive (ever hear of backing up more than one copy?).

Pain & Gain

All I can say is, thank goodness that I didn’t see until the END credits that Michael Bay directed Pain & Gain. It totally would have colored the way I looked at the film, because it has been duly noted that I’m not his biggest fan. So, count me surprised that I found this over-the-top …
