Justice is not limited, it is a universal quality
Meet the Robinsons

I am inspired to watch this because not only is it a movie that I was interested in, but @Bowler Hat Guy indirectly reminded me to check it out because that was his theme. After watching it, I felt good about it. It's a fantastic Disney film with a really nice message.

I admit that as soon as I've seen what one of the characters is in the beginning, I knew who the bad guy is based on. The Robinsons are also quite a great bunch overall, and while the film is graphically simpler compared to future 3D animated films, I think it still looks great.

Thank you for reading.

King Dedede

King of Dream Land
Poll Committee
Dora and the Lost City of Gold

This was actually really good. Definitely more of a comedic take on various "kid show" elements of Dora the Explorer. Dora is the same socially awkward girl you remember, but ten years older and making a fool of herself in high school. Diego is now that guy who feels embarrassed by her and is just trying to make it through life. As for the new characters, Randy is that nerdy guy who is fully convinced everything works just like in the movies, while Sammy is so much of a Chloé Bourgeois clone that it's not even funny. You have some cracks about how Dora likes to talk to nothing, the return of Swiper the extremely talented thief whose only weakness is the words "Swiper, no swiping", one scene where everything becomes animated and the return of Talking Map and Zipper Mouth Backpack (plus Grumpy Old Troll cameo), and of course it's not complete without the cliche plot twist where an ally is actually a bad guy.

There was romance too...er, poor attempts at it. I really could have done without any of those Diego/Sammy moments.

Anyway. If you like laughing at characters in kids shows who ask you a question and wait for a response, or laughing at thieves who will stop stealing stuff as soon as you tell them no, or laughing at...pretty much anything, this is for you.

Jump at every opportunity, Live for the moment!
a friend showed me City of Ember, it's really good for what I assume a movie for older kids/young teens.
 

King Dedede

King of Dream Land
Poll Committee
Frozen II

As someone who disliked the first movie for its cheesy plot and hit-or-miss soundtrack, this was actually pretty dang amazing. It surprised me. And believe me, it's very rare when I call a sequel movie better than the original.

Also...Kristoff got a solo!!!!
 

Rinka Hayami

Koops, King of cowards.
The Invention of Lying

This was actually pretty cool and got some chuckles out of me.

What I really liked though was that Mark was literally the only liar in the world yet he's the kindest of all characters.
 

Super Mario Bros.

Oh boy! Haha!

I saw Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker after a marathon of all the movies.

I really like the Machete Order (watching the movies in the particular order of IV, V, (I), II, III, VI, VII, VIII, IX). I include Episode I even though Machete technically calls to drop it because I don't particularly like skipping anything. :yoshi:

That being said,

I liked a lot of the ideas present in Episode IX but felt they were too superficially explored, which resulted in the movie being extremely choppy. I've read online that 40 whole minutes were cut in post-production that would have otherwise resolved plot holes and pacing issues, so it would be cool to see a director's cut one day. I wonder if Disney/Lucasfilm would ever allow that, though...
 

FireyYoshi!

Ka-Chow!
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot- Funny as hell and was like if nothing had changed.
 

Sheldon Cooper

Bazinga!
Central Intelligence.

It is a solid movie that is rare in the modern era of film.
 

Rinka Hayami

Koops, King of cowards.
The Sonic Movie.

That was pretty cool, and definitely waaay better than what anyone expected at first. Not surprised in the least of what it's accomplished so far.
 

Dimentio

Master of Dimensions, Pleaser of Crowds
Sonic the Hedgehog

Was fun, Jim Carrey is golden as usual and Sonic's interactions with the human cast are great. I unfortunately didn't see the beginning, as I walked in a few minutes after the film started.

Tom talking to a donut. Sonic is already on Earth, and shortly after he goes to the baseball field.

I doubt there's a video online of what I missed, even if I'm pretty sure it was only the first few minutes of the film. But if so, hopefully I'll find it.

I'm going back and revisiting lots of Disney movies I used to like when I was younger. In the last four days I've revisited The Little Mermaid, Tangled, and Toy Story 3.
