    Space Jam, which was actually not too bad considering. The biggest problem for me was when my 8 year old turned to me and asked who the rabbit is, none of these loony tunes characters are really relevant any more
    Did this review apply?

    Tbh, my kids don't know the classic Disney characters. They know Mickey and Minnie but have no affinity with them and have no idea of the others. It's all the Princess lot and Pixar and beyond.

    For a such a huge mascot Mickey has very few actually good or big shows or films of his own.

    Castle of Illusion and Kingdom Hearts are probably his best work

    We have never exposed our 3 year old to anything with Mickey Mouse at home. He still manages to know who he is...

    My youngest likes the Mickey characters, thereís a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or something show on for kids around 4 years old which she stumbled across one day. I could barely remember the Old Lady/Grandma character tbh, or the big rooster. Foghorn Leghorn? No idea about the red hairy thing, but Marvin was a nice blast from the past

    Love and Monsters on Netflix

    Not devoid of a certain charm, but meh. The surface doesn't look at all dangerous enough to drive humans underground.

    5/10

    This is where Disney played a blinder and just bought pop-culture. It was really noticeable when we took the girl to Disney that the only person who gave a shit about meeting the classic characters was the wife.

    We know about Loony Tunes because that was basically all we had as kids.

    Back in the day weíd just get plonked in front of a VHS from a really crap video rental place (one of the ones run out of a corner shop) and watch Loony Tunes (the one child friendly video available from there) while the grown ups got dinner on or just sat in a darkened room regretting their decisions. It was good because you got loads of episodes on one tape, and that same tape was watched over and over.

    Nowadays kids have streaming services and can watch anything they want. Thatís Galactus level power compared to what we had.

    The Tomorrow War - 4/10

    It was too long. The tone was all over the place, especially towards the end where they inserted comedy which felt completely out of place... So many scenes were completely ridiculous, I wish they just kept it light-hearted throughout, rather than expecting the viewer to generally take it seriously.

    The special effects were decent, but I hated the generic "Resident Evil" alien designs.

    The logic behind tracking down the aliens was baffling. The aliens were known to originate from Russia (I think?) but then because the aliens had traces of volcanic ash from an eruption 1000 years ago (ejecting ash which covered half the globe) and because some scientists drilled somewhere and found some of this ash in Russia (despite this ash covering half the globe) they somehow knew this was the exact spot the aliens emerged from? Ridiculous.

    Also, in the end they used C4 explosives to kill the aliens... so why did the entire plot revolve around developing a toxin to defeat them?

    Generally entertaining, and the concept showed potential (although, at best, it's just Terminator meets Independence Day) but it's a shame it's full of plot holes and nonsense. The strategy should have been to use time travel to prevent the future war, not to mindlessly supply troops to fight in a hopeless future war.

    The thing is, for Disney, what happens when Marvel and Star Wars stop being cool? Because they will. Happens to everything.

    Tomorrow War
    wtf/10

    Felt like an endless stream of napkins with the plot written in charcoal just stapled together. Genuinely a bad and dull movie. Reminded me of Starship Troopers but without any sort of commentary or nonsense that makes that film watchable.

    I hope they got paid well for having that smear on their IMDB page.

    @Rivuzu I didn't hate it and my son quite enjoyed it when we watched it a couple of weeks ago, but it needed to lose about 45 minutes. It also doesn't make sense. On any level. I did like the creatures though and the actiony bits were decent. So there's that. It is mountains of stupid though.

    @wuntyate It's like they designed the set pieces absent of plot. And the final act was just... Why did it exist again? It really felt like the film ended way before it did and then it was like beating a dead horse.

    @Rivuzu Re: The last act, I especially liked: "We COULD tell all the governments, but they won't tackle the problem. Even though it's blatantly something that every nation has been aware of for a long time and thousands of people world-wide have died. So let's do it ourselves. With no real plan."

    @wuntyate Yes, at that point it was as if the writers were openly acknowledging to the audience that they'd written a shit film, with zero logic behind the plot and character motivations.

    The Door

    An interesting premise that's let down by the execution, in particular the actors. It starts off fine, but then unfortunately descends into typical horror foolishness.

    Available on Prime.

    5/10

    Fear street part 3, folded it all together in a half interesting way. An intriguing project in the end but that part 2 is a low point for me.
    Worth running through in the end as it did try something different with a well trod format.

    So as a collection Iíd say itís around 65.

    Well, whatever's cool in the future, they'll just buy that as well.
    They have infinite money, for all intents and purposes.
