Added Mission Impossible fallout and Christopher Robin. Both were enjoyable. Fallout is a little too long for it's own good and is not quite as good a film as the other two and yet, still quite entertaining. Christopher Robin is very cute and it touched and moved me but it does drag at times. Both worth watching.

I saw the first Fantastic Beasts for the first time only about a week and a half ago and then, as the new one was about to leave theatres, I finally watched the new one tonight. In many ways, it's a mess. It has no real story. Instead the film is nothing but worldbuilding, flashbacks and sequel setup. But....I was very entertained and involved with all of that so I forgive it. I hope it goes somewhere decent if they manage to get a third one made. I liked this one more than most did.

added the extremely underated Teen Tians Go to the movies. The film is not only hilarious but is also a clever commentary on modern superhero cinema and it's marketing and consumption by today's audiences. Much better than I ever thought it could be.

Aquaman is at once amazing and also exhausting as I can't remember the last time I felt like I was being bludgeoned by action scenes but here we are. Still, director James Wan elevates the material sky high so I can't knock a movie who's only real crime is going super HARD to entertain you. It also holds the honorable distinction of containing the most faithful comic book super villain costumes ever committed to film in Black Manta and Ocean Master.

Yep, the costume designs were fantastic. Did you notice how Orm's comic accurate mask at the end, the top and bottom around the eyes move to show his emotions (like scowling)? Kind of the same effect as the eyes for Deadpool and Spider-Man.

I didn't. But it really makes that final battle scene pop more than I realized in retrospect. The very definition of a fun film.
