    Dumbo. For a kids movie its not fun. Its tim burton so in vein of his alice in wonderland. Doesnt work with dumbo. Has an animal cruelty message as story plot. Good visuals. It didnt grab me.

    John Wick 3

    Action is technically good though perhaps more mechanical and joyless than the previous films in the franchise (as much as stabbing and gunning people down can be joyful I suppose).

    The story is perhaps slightly too in love with its own lore. There's a real risk that it's beginning to disappear up its own arse.
    I'm really just here for the free food and open bar.

    Saw John Wick 3 as well. I'm a big fan of the previous two and am happy to see more and can't wait for number 4.

    John wick 3. The ending spoiled it for me when he rolled down the grassy noll. Took me out of the movie. Some fight scenes are like "hes just standing there waiting for his turn." 6/10. Its good if you enjoy the other wick movies but unsure if most will get bored of the formula by movie 4.

    Aladdin. Better than Dumbo for a kids movie. Runs through the same formula as the cartoon. 7/10. Will smith pulls off a good genie considering he had to follow robin williams.

    Godzilla ll. More monsters less monster fighting. The fights are not as focused on as previously, some fight happens then we watch humans trying to save a girl. Back to the fighting. So the fights are not start to finish. The first is better. Only four monsters end up in the fight. 5-6ish/10. Great for a spectacle at the flicks with popcorn.

    Dark Phoenix: an ok x men movie. 5/10. Needs a bit more meat to it but not the worst way to waste 2 hours. Not Logan but better than apocolypse. Look forward to see what mcu does with the x-men.

    Saw Godzilla 2. Better than the first one due to more monsters despite less action. Prompted me to watch the prequel again.

    Spud-man far from home. Please stay for the two extra scenes. Could have fleshed out mysterios background a bit more just to understand him better. Will the xmen come from his home world? One wonders. Feels a bit manic with things going on all the time. You dont get in depth like you did with Vulture but the action is there. 6/10. They do address the snap back after five years. It is special effects laden.

    Toy Story 4: Doesnt have the emotional punch as 3, but still has emotion. An enjoyable film rescuing another toy. There are some deep themes involved. 7/10
