    Jungle Cruise

    ★½

    Between all of its call backs to Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones, Jungle Cruise is another just another Disney movie, yep, "Disney movie" is an adjective now. Everybody was blurting out British accents in the first 10 minutes of it, even a Russian prince had a British accent, and I was anticipating that Dwayne Johnson will have a bloody British accent, but nope, he played himself again.

    ★★★★★

    "I have a love in my life that makes me stronger than anything you can imagine."

    5 freaking stars for one of the most machiavellian films that my eyes have ever come in contact with. A mastery of the art known as direction, an intelligent crafting of characterization, and PTA just being PTA. It's no exaggeration that this is the best directed movie I have ever saw; With every frame blended with camera movements, no scenes are lifeless, dull, nor…
