    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    ★★

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

    I have never been as baffled by a movie being positively received as I have with the response to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. I understand that opinions are subjective and all, but I can't, for the life of me, understand how people are giving this their stamps of approval and The Emoji Movie, which is a worse film, to be fair, is slammed like there's no tomorrow.

    Mommy

    ★★★★★

    Funny, heartbreaking, and beautiful, Mommy is a superb film that, while it could have been maybe 10 minutes shorter, captures the true relationship that a mom and a son have with one another. Incredible cinematography, brilliantly acted, and well written/directed.
