Hacksaw Ridge

There are a bit of Braveheart vibes here and there but it was enjoyable in general.

I completely lost my shit on the two seconds-long shot of american and japanese soldiers punching each others in the face, causing a chain reaction as the camera pans back and forth. I genuinely adore Mel Gibson's sense of humor, regardless of how good or bad his films are.

Kubo and the Two Strings

A true feast for the eyes; Even the somewhat anticlimactic story couldn't devalue it for me.

Cannibal! The Musical

I finally watched this after it was on my watchlist for so long, and I'm glad I did. I don't really know what I was expecting going in, but it exceeded my expectations. Very low budget, very cheesy, but hilarious with really good songs.

So, Moana was really good. I don't even have any particular complaints like with most Disney movies, it's just plain good.

The Book of Mormon

Technically not a movie at all, but there's no thread for musicals to my knowledge lol. I know that Trey, and Matt, love musicals, and this was really enjoyable; though maybe not for everyone because the humor is really crude (but what do you expect from M & T lol). I love the songs, too.

Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Not one of Mel Brooks' best, but far from being his worst overall (his worst IMO was Dracula: Dead and Loving It).

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Yep. CBS was playing this tonight. Can cross that one off my list since I'll be doing a special article for the site this December.

Moana

It was so, so great. Like Whelt said, the issues on this movie are far and few between. I'd go as far to say that it was better than Frozen!

That's what I thought after watching Zootopia for the first time in the theatre.

OT:

Strangers on a Train

Now I fully get the OJ Simpson/Roger Rabbit sketch from Robot Chicken...

Allow me to rephrase: as far as Disney Princess movies go, Moana is a lot better than Frozen. Similar to how I feel Tangled had a great story but lacking songs, Frozen had a pretty standard soundtrack without great songs (for better or worse). Here with Moana, I believe both could be equally matched. Though, with Moana's directors John Musker and Ron Clements having worked on other modern Disney classics like Aladdin and The Little Mermaid and Lin Manuel-Mirada of freakin' Hamilton providing work on the soundtrack, I guess it's not all that surprising.

(For the record, I'm still not all that familiar with Hamilton, but I still recognize that he's got credentials.)

I wouldn't really consider myself a fan of Frozen but, fun fact time, one of the people who co-created Book of Mormon alongside Matt and Trey was Robert Lopez, who wrote songs for Frozen. And the actor who played Elder Cunningham in the first productions of Book of Mormon, Josh Gad, did the voice of Olaf.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

I'm surprised with how much I liked this movie, specially when I loathed Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix back then, found the Half-Blood Prince pretty boring and never bothered with Deathly Hallows, mostly because I didn't find David Yates' directing particularly good. Maybe rewatching the second half of the HP films will lighten up my opinions on them.

As for Fantastic Beasts, it's probably too much to ask for more Kowalski in the sequel, but I'm satisfied with his role in the film. The best character, no doubt.
