  • Finding Dory

    Finding Dory

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Did they seriously allude to Hank not being able to fit through the pipes? I've seen videos of octopus fitting through holes less than an inch.

    Ok, yes, it's a movie about talking fish, but did that octopus really just fucking drive.

    64/100

  • Finding Nemo

    Finding Nemo

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Apparently when a female clownfish dies the dominant male changes sex and becomes a female. So does that mean Marlin is technically Nemo's mum?

    Is cannibalism made wrong by the fact it's the same species that is being eaten or the fact it is something with the same intelligence/ sentience that is being eaten. Anyways it felt weird when the Pelican helped and chatted to Marlin when he presumably eats multiple fish everyday.

    73/100

  • Toy Story 2

    Toy Story 2

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    So we know toys can hear, see, smell and feel emotion but can they feel physical pain? If so, they should probably hate kids for causing them years of torture.

    Why does “You've Got a Friend in Me” sound so nostalgic just two movies into the series?

    80/100

  • Toy Story

    Toy Story

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Is Sid even a villain? Dudes just a creative child that will now undergo years of psychological trauma and guilt.

    I forgot how much of an arsehole Woody was at the start.

    75/100

  • Incredibles 2

    Incredibles 2

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Was Evelyn's plan really to make superheroes legal so she could then make them "more" illegal¿ That's just about the dumbest shit I've ever heard.

    They really did undermine The Underminer. Poor guy was set up to be the next big villain in the first movie.

    69/100

  • The Incredibles

    The Incredibles

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Was it a coincidence that both the kids were basically named after their powers?

    Now this, this is a proper superhero movie.

    80/100

  • Brave

    Brave

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why wasn't Merida more concerned with her brothers becoming bears? Things damn near got four times as tragic.

    Scotland already have Shrek, could they not have based this on Irish folklore?

    54/100

  • The Good Dinosaur

    The Good Dinosaur

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    What's the point in having such beautifully animated background scenery if your gonna stick an ugly ass cartoon dinosaur in the middle of it?

    Going by Pixar standards, empty as fuck.

    42/100

  • Playing with Fire

    Playing with Fire

    ½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Good entertainment in repeatedly successful guessing the cliché lines/ plot points before they would come up.

    John Cena has 4, yes 4, topless scenes in a kids movie. Lousy effort to keep the mum's from killing themselves.

    10/100

  • The Dictator

    The Dictator

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I'm dieing to know what Zoey had, a boy or an abortion?

    Who knew that a vegan feminist and a dictating sexist would have so much in common...oh wait.

    49/100

  • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The end of Mile's fight with Kingpin gave off major Kung Fu Panda vibes.

    That comic book style animation could make just about any plot entertaining.

    86/100

  • Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A comfort movie for me. Incredibly moving without ever taking itself too seriously. Ricky is all too lovable and just effortlessly funny. Watching the realtionship between himself and Hec grow throughout is heartwarming to the extreme. Possibly my favourite movie bond. There's something incredibly comforting in seeing Hec, after his life changing loss, emersing himself into this aimless, disconnected adventure that has serene, childlike priorities.

    I've always had a strange desire to go on a wild, onfoot journey away from society with some sort of authority chasing me. This movie is a perfect representation of this desire. Masterpiece.

    98/100
