Full of whiz-bang special effects, plentiful explosions, and pithy one-liners, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is slightly more fun than its predecessor, but it also has way too much going on in too short of a time frame to actually be a truly great movie.
The Last of Us Part 2 is exciting and visceral. The team at Naughty Dog overcame many obstacles and delivered a worthy sequel to one of the biggest games of all time. It will be another decade before we see anything as stunning and personal in a major console release.
