Lightyear

I have always been a big fan of the Disney/Pixar movies and feel like they have always done a great job of being original, funny, heartfelt, and overall a great time for all ages. Lightyear did not really measure up to its predecessors in my opinion.

Buzz Lightyear(Chris Pratt) takes viewers on a mission to get off a planet he is stranded on where he pretty much fails over and over like Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow.(In fact, that was pretty much the plot.) The other characters were not very interesting to me with the exception of Sox the cat(I loved this character as Sox is the kind of Disney/Pixar character we have come to love over the years!)

The action sequences are nice as you sometimes feel like you are watching a real movie instead of animated, but they are not enough to hold the film for me. I also felt like Disney tried to push social issues in this film even though they do not seem to fit the forced storylines. I do think there are better films to discuss social issues, but a fun little children’s movie just did not seem like the right spot to me.

I would love to see Disney/Pixar get back to their original wonderful roots on their next film.

Top Gun: Maverick

After seeing the original Top Gun ages ago (1986 to be exact), I thought it was a fun date movie, but nothing more. When I heard that a sequel was to come some 30 plus years later, I cringed at the thought of how bad it would be. Well, I was definitely caught off guard and totally surprised...

The Batman…or is it? Ok, full disclosure. I am a Batman fanatic, which is why it took me a while to while to get this up. As I walked out of the screening a little over a week ago, I had mixed feelings about what I was going to be writing about. But the longer I thought about it, those...
