Paddington 2 ★★★

So I went from seeing Annihilation where a mutant bear rips someones face off to this adorable little guy who is far too civilized for nonsense like that. The supporting cast is great as they play the Penny to Paddington's Inspector Gadget. Particularly good was Hugh Grant. I didn't know he had that kind of range. I'm legitimately impressed. Also, Brendan Gleeson may be my favorite actor ever.

Overall the movie was too long and more saccharine than sugar free marmalade. I didn't get the hype. I think I Iiked the first one better.
