Summer 2019 recap

Big summer!

Movies:
Rocketman: Taron Egerton pulled it off as Elton John even though most of the people around him are assholes. B-

Godzilla: King of the Monsters: Basic giant monsters fights and characters making stupid decisions. C

Men in Black: International: Enjoyable performances from the leads do not help this mediocre film. C-

Toy Story 4: Not necessary but still a lot of effort put into this. A-

Dark Phoenix: Too dull and Too edgy. D

Spider-Man: Far From Home: Great hero and Great villain. Hope Peter’s story continues. A

The Lion King: A complete shot for shot remake that felt so unnecessary. D

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: Despite the excellent performances of (Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt the movie felt too quick even with the long running time. B-

Hobbs and Shaw: Stupid fun. B-

Dora and the Lost City of Gold: Stupid but not the worst thing ever. C-

The Angry Birds Movie 2: Though still a movie for kids this sequel is better than the first one in every way. B-….. also the short Hair Love was fantastic. A

Shows:

The Loud House with the Casagrandes: A really nice set up for a promising spinoff. Ronnie Anne’s new best friend Sid Chang is the highlight of these episodes. She’s probably one of my favorite if not my favorite character of the show now.

Final Space season 2: Still has a great balance between drama and comedy. I’ll talk more about it when season 2 is over.

Amphibia season 1: Likable characters and fun location. Can’t wait to see season 2.

The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants season 3: Still fun though does anyone notice that a bunch of Netflix show’s season 3s take place during summer? Examples being F is for Family and Stranger Things.

Twelve Forever: Cute but not my cup of tea.

Infinity Train: A great miniseries full of creativity, emotion and mystery.

Rocko’s Modern Life: Static Cling: A great lesson on looking on to the future.

Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus: You could see this as a satisfying conclusion to this series though you may have to watch the show in order to get some of the references.
