After years of talking about the film, James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water is finally arriving on the big screen in theaters. Here’s the thing about Avatar: you’re either a fan or you’re not. How one feels about the first movie will more or less be the way one feels about the second. I would have been fine just watching the 2D version of the film. Maybe it’s because of where I was sitting…"Avatar: The Way of Water: You’ll Love It Or You Won’t"

The Adam Project isn’t the second coming of Free Guy but it shows that last summer’s Shawn Levy-Ryan Reynolds combo isn’t a fluke. Every now and then, there’s a film coming out that reminds me of the movies I grew up with. In 2011, it was Super 8. This year, it’s The Adam Project.
