    Decent sequel!

    The plot is excellent, the screenplay is overall fantastic. I did like a lot of pop culture and film references (they are pretty funny), but it is not as hilarious as the first one. It is not as memorable and unique as the first film, but it does offer another perspective - family. The parodies of Far Far Away (Hollywood) and classic Disney Princess films are superb!

    Gosling is perfect, without…

    The Shining in the lighthouse?

    Well, the direction is excellent. The screenplay is pretty interesting. On one hand, I liked Egger's use of old English language for this setting, but it does make the film harder to understand and the use of swearing might be anachronistic (especially it is set in the 1890s). The setting is very good and I feel that the character development is nice and steady. Some scenes are quite boring and a little bit long-winded. Quite…
