The Secret Lives of Pets is okay. The plot of all over the place. It comes off a bit muddled and all the elements make it like jangling keys in front of a kid. It is still entertaining despite certain elements only added to give some comedians a paycheck.

Rob Zombie's movie 31 is visually compelling and the soundtrack is good bit the characters are not well-developed or interesting. It is exploitative and depraved at times and missing his signature fun dialogue. The film is a pretty weak entry for a Rob Zombie movie.

Moana is a really beautiful movie. It tells a great story with interesting characters that go through great growth and tells a powerful tale of redemption. The animation is fantastic and will make anyone desire a trip to Hawaii soon. It is totally worth checking out.
Brother Nature is an okay comedy that mixes Black Sheep and The Great Outdoors. There is nothing really awful about it but also nothing very memorable. It is a fine example of comedic mediocrity. It has a few fun moments, but not enough to differentiate it from the countless others like it.

This movie is weird. That is putting it lightly. Zardoz is bizarre and I am sure is appreciated for that in many circles but it just left me confused as to the point of it all and why it took so long to get to what it was trying to say. It is worth seeing if you love cult movies or just want something that challenges you.

As a fan of the book I looked forward to the film adaptation of the BFG. It is sort of a mixed bag. It's a pretty movie and it's well acted but it is a bit tone deaf. One scene will be a dark scene about giants eating children the next will be the Queen of England farting. It is worth a rental if curious but otherwise it is pretty forgettable.

Kubo and the Two Strings is a beautiful movie with an epic story of loss and adventure and overvoming extreme obstacle. The characters are fantastic, the art is dreamy, and the story is wonderful. It is a lovely movie that should be seen.
While We're Young is a disappointing waste of a talented cast. The story is a pointless cliche and the cast seems to know it since they phone it in as beat they can given the material. Really, it is a shame and not worth seeing

Trolls is a cute movie featuring fun, colorful animation that looks like the PlayStation game Little Big Planet. The music is peppy and the message will please any kid. Totally worth showing to your child.

The South Korean zombie movie Train to Busan is a breath of fresh air to the tired genre. The characters are well developed and the plot interesting with scenes that are creepy utilizing effects that are certainly worth seeing.

Pete's Dragon (2016) is a decent remake. It is different enough to be enjoyable and considered it's own movie. It at times feels like an alternate universe version of Mama. Still, it has heart and is an entertaining movie.

The Storks preview felt like it would have been an animated style that really wasn't my taste. However, the characters and movement really felt like a throwback to Looney Tunes animation. It was a smart movie with heart and humor. I love being wrong about movies sometimes.
