My pop-culture consumption for the spring and summer of 2016, with patent-pending two-word reviews:

MOVIES
What We Do In The Shadows – quirky fun
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice – over stuffed
The Equalizer – equals boredom
Blackhat – whack hack
Midnight Special – moody mystery
Get Hard – hardly funny
Fantastic 4 – dire dirge
The Man from U.N.C.L.E. – empty slickness
Turbo Kid – retro camp
Chappie – crappie crap
Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead: The Story of the National Lampoon – comedic innovators
Hitman: Agent 47 – lethargic noise
Lucy – fun ride
Finding Dory – worthy sequel
Star Trek Beyond – familiar upswing
David Bowie: 5 Years – interesting choices
The History of The Eagles – bad vibes
Quiet Riot: Well Know You’re Here, There’s No Way Back – strong case
Sausage Party – had moments
Terminator Salvation – cannot salvage

TELEVISION
The Walking Dead (Season 6) – losing steam
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 2) – appropriately scattered
Silicon Valley (Season 3) – strongest yet
Game of Thrones (Season 6) – predicable plotting
Stranger Things (Season 1) – more please
OJ: Made In America – fascinating dissection
Fear the Walking Dead (Season 1) – quick decline

MUSIC
Wilco: Schmilco – hushed grower
Dinosaur Jr: Give A Glimpse Of What Y’er Not – still crackin’
