    ★★★

    I had fun with this movie. There wasn't much I disliked but what I really enjoyed was Chris Pratt's character, Barley Lightfoot. I loved his van with the different "Dungeons and Dragons" spray paint as well as his patches on his vest. His character brought a lot of energy to this movie that it needed.

    ★★★½

    I'm going to defend this movie. I know many that hate this movie and compare it to, "Batman and Robin" which I could see. Both films are campy, over the top with one liners and Chris 'O Donnell (No offense to him). But there are differences between both films and here's my defense.

    This film at least has scenes with good lighting and cinematography. Specifically Val Kimmer's flashbacks to when he lost his parents. Val Kilmer goes all in and…
