    Transformers: The Last Knight

    ★★★½

    Okay look. Let me just make one thing clear. I was not expecting to like this movie. It looked terrible and critics everywhere derided it. The last three Transformers movies have all mostly been garbage. Why should this be any better? But last night I found a copy for free, hooked it up to my TV, and gave it a go.

    ★★★½

    Beauty and the Beast (2017) is Disney's live-action remake of their animated classic of the same name. The original was directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise and here the studio brings in Bill Condon to do the remake. You know what the story is, so I don't need to re-summarize it, but I'd imagine if you're reading this you'd like to know my thoughts. Well right off the bat I'd give this film a 7/10. BUT.
