    Meet the Robinsons

    ★★★½

    Hmmm… Let's see… Take responsibility for my own life, or blame you... Ding, ding, ding! Blame you wins hands down!

    Considering this was made in the 2000s, Meet the Robinsons is genius. Heartfelt, action-packed, fun, and genuinely one of Disney’s funniest releases. As someone who loves Walt Disney World, the Tomorrowland gag was such a nice touch. Plus, the Tom Selleck joke is just golden. The characters are super neat; Lewis is a likeable lead, Wilbur’s arrogance is balanced nicely…

    - Do I look injured?
    - Well, we only do injuries.

    Rian Johnson and Daniel Craig are an unstoppable duo when it comes to murder mysteries: they nailed it with Knives Out, and whilst Glass Onion doesn’t quite rival the original, it’s a worthy sequel that’s still fun, mysterious and well-crafted. The first act was a little unstable. It needed a murder sooner, and to…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

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

    But this isn’t about me. This is hurting a lot of people.

    Seeing this film, after such long a wait and so many speculations and theories, is the modern-day equivalent of being a teen in the ‘80s who got to see Star Wars or Indiana Jones or any other iconic, memorable flick on the big-screen for the first ever time. It’s a bold statement to make, I know — but Spider-Man: No Way Home was everything I wanted it to…
