Hey it’s the first spooky Tuesday of October, too bad I don’t have a spooky pick for this week. Sicario: Day of the Soldado is the pick of the week, it’s not very spooky but it’s pretty good.

FBI agent Matt Graver calls on mysterious operative Alejandro Gillick when Mexican drug cartels start to smuggle terrorists across the U.S. border. The war escalates even further when Alejandro kidnaps a top kingpin’s daughter to deliberately increase the tensions. When the young girl is seen as collateral damage, the two men will determine her fate as they question everything that they are fighting for. – Columbia Pictures

The summer of Brolin continues with Sicario: Day of the Soldado. This movie is very different from the first, it’s still good but you just can’t compare the two. Sicario 2 is a dark action thriller with beautiful cinematography full of anti-heroes. There’s no good guys, this isn’t a happy movie but it is a good movie. Benny D and Joshy B kill it. My only criticisms with the movie are that it’s not the first one, which isn’t really a valid criticism.
