I saw three movies in theaters this past week. Two of them, Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom and Ant Man and the Wasp, I was a little late in seeing but finally managed to make it happen. The other movie I saw was Mission Impossible Fallout starring Tom Cruise and Henry Cavill. I didn’t do a full review for these movies, but I did write out my overall thoughts on them all.
The ones who changed will change everything. The Darkest Minds (2018), based on the NYT bestselling novel by Alexandra Bracken, stars Amandla Stenberg, and is in theaters on August 3rd!

No one is more conflicted than her mother, and Olivia can only watch as Chairwoman Dresden chooses the dark, destructive course every time.
