    Mm..yeah. Very, very bad movie. Lol! The Rock should have paid me to watch that crap of a movie.

    What I miss and need are films like Life of Pi!

    Fantastic Beast: The Crimes of Grindelwald 5/10 : The movies' a mess. Too many plots, subplots, back stories. Uneven pacing, Lacking cohesivenss to make for an entertaining movie. Easily the worst Potter film. Avoid at all cost.

    Mm...still needs to be watched. It is only part 2 out of 5. Like I said, parts 3 to 5 may yet save this franchise.

    I’m sure almost everyone will watch it, so it will be a commercial success. But it’s still a bad movie. Agree with @leninmac this is easily the worst HP film

    Robin Hood (2018) - surprisingly it was an 8.5/10

    I was expecting another Kevin Costner type Robin Hood, but no, they really jazzed things up for this version.
    The first 20 minutes was Black Hawk Down with bows and arrows, and then the movie shifted to: Batman, with bows and arrows, or maybe it's Green Arrow.
    Anyway, this one is a lot of fun and worth watching, unlike Grindelwald.
    And the daughter of U2's Bono plays Marian in this film too.

    Ralph Breaks the Internet. Fun movie. Until Disney broke it by over-milking their old franchises, princesses in particular. Milking is fine. But over-milking feels a bit like MCU movies—gazillion characters to please everyone.

    Still good. It had the potential to be better than the first, especially with the wealth of Internet references going for it, but now I'm not sure it outdid the first. Still, it was better than the I-can't-even-remember-its-title Harry Potter movie. :)

    Ralph breaks the Internet 8/10

    I went in with low expectations thinking that it would be difficult to match the predecessor's wit and fun. I was wrong. In most ways, the sequel surpassed my expectations. A hilarious, entertaining and clever sequel that capitalizes on the offerings of the internet - its beauty, wisdom, humor and of course the power it holds over human lives and it parallels with the characters within the sequel. Initially, the movie somewhat struggled to find its focus, nevertheless, the journey at certain points feels refreshing and in course, having co-dependency of relationships becoming a core element in the story. Since the story is set in the internet, anything is possible, memes left and right, from the giant tower of Google to the rubble of AOL and Geocities, visuals and humor are aplenty. The Disney princesses stole the show for me because they were badass, meaningful and not simply included. Of note, Stan lee has a cameo here as well. The third act sealed it for me, because of the wondrous emotional closure it afforded. I may need to see it again for the references because there were a lot. Also there is also a mid and post credits scene, be sure to stay for it haha.

    ^The Disney princesses stole enough show. Their unnecessary encore at the end Wrecked it, Ralph. ;)

    Peppermint, where Ben Affleck's ex returns as Sidney Bristow aka Alias...

    Incredibly dumb but fun watching bad guys get plastered by the #MeToo movement...

    One for the balls here, 7/10 and that's being generous...

    Ralph Breaks the Internet 8/10 would have enjoyed it if not for the kid who won't stop crying beside me, really can't understand inconsiderate parents who not take their child out of the theater once they become unruly and annoyance to other theater goers

    That's why I mostly go to the last showing schedule of a movie, least likely there would be kids.

    Mortal Engines 7.5/10

    Visually satisfying and emotionally engaging. Despite the script needing more polish, the world-building successfully cultivates its own sense of spectacle, bolstered by meaningful direction, superb performances and well-crafted production design, making it a very worthy immersively entertaining ride.
