    Jungle Cruise

    ★★★

    This is basically exactly what you’d expect, and want. It’s a fun family film which harkens back to the old Disney adventure classics, but doesn’t do anything speacial to break the mold:

    -It is 100% carried by Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt who are great on screen with one another, despite some (a lot) of jokes which don’t land as good as others.

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★

    Despite not being as emotionally resonant and powerful as it’s predecessor, Krasinski effectively expands the world of the first film and the characters that inhabit it to give us another thrilling experience, despite the cinema being a not so quiet place:

    -The characters here are just as great as they were in the first film, with some new additions which added another layer to the world we know.
