Harley’s Down But Don’t Count Her Out

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

So Birds of Prey was a bit of a box office downer.

Which seems like a bit of a surprise because on top of a slow box office, a popular character and great to good reviews & word of mouth- you think this would have been a slam dunk. You’d think it would have at least hit the bottom of estimates…

Aladdin vs. Aladdin

Aladdin

Turns out I’m very torn so I thought I’d weigh the scales.

The Aeronauts

Directed By: Tom Harper

So The Aeronauts is about a ballooning trip to study weather in 1862 London that goes horribly wrong. I decided to give this a go because it looked pretty and sounded interesting but I have to tell you the minute it was obvious Amelia was taking the dog with her I started Googling spoilers.

Who cares about these two what happens to the dog?

Only I found a more interesting story.

Morbius and Oscar Noms

Jared Leto in Morbius

the family in ready or not

As we get ready for all the new 2020 movies I thought I’d wrap up my movie year in a one sentence for each film post 🙂 I had fun looking back and doing this for 2018.

Though to keep it simple I am limiting it to 2019 theatrical releases mostly in the order I saw them.
