Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald 11/21/18
It is basically a collection of names and references from the future Harry Potter series (many of which actually contradict timelines and events within the books, and of course the very blatant straightwashing of Dumbledore) that I don't see how anyone new to the world or just a casual viewer can even hope to make sense of the absolute cluster**** that's taking place before them.
The Little Mermaid 11/17/18
I think I love it more now than I did as a kid, because it is so layered and has so much that makes it great, I find something different I love most every time I watch it.
Oliver & Company 11/17/18
I think it helps in some places, the animation of the city in general contributes to it's feeling of overall love of a city that despite it's wonders also has a darker side (especially in 1988).
There are some truly brilliant sequences and shots in this (most notably that whole opening scene, and a brilliantly weird scene that follows Colin Farrell's politician character on a short drive home after an appearance that rams home more about his character than 2 hours of dialogue could.) It's a very cleverly done knockout of a thriller.
Capricorn One 11/12/18
Inspired by conspiracy theories that the Moon landing was faked, Capricorn One follows a planned mission for three astronauts to land on Mars, which it is discovered is sure to fail due to a fault, so rather than risk the financial and PR disaster of a costly failed or cancelled mission, NASA instead choose to fake the mission, even to the mission control staff who think they are handling a manned mission rather than an empty craft.
First Man 11/12/18
In a way, it almost felt like an 'anti-war' space film, not so much glamourising space travel, NASA, the Apollo mission, the American dream and all that, but more questioning was all this sacrifice really worthwhile?
The Black Cauldron 11/08/18
But then in the long run, it's not a bad thing that it flopped at the time, as the changes after it led to what is in my opinion, Disney's greatest era in the early 90s.
Eighth Grade 11/08/18
It's also a difficult time for any kid, as they're teetering on that brink of still being a kid, but wanting to move forward and be a grownup.
