MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity)
Genre: Comedy/Fantasy
Director: Brandon Trost
Cast: Seth Rogen, Sarah Snook, Molly Evensen, Eliot Glazer, Kalen Allen

Seth Rogen, playing two roles and showing no chemistry with himself, is in “comedy mode” here but the material isn’t funny enough for that to work.

U.S. Release Date: 2020-06-12
MPAA Rating: "PG" (Violence)
Genre: Fantasy/Adventure
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Cast: Ferdia Shaw, Lara McDonnell, Josh Gad, Judi Dench, Collin Farrell, Nonso Anozie, Tamara Smart

Offers a few standout moments set adrift in a sea of underdeveloped characters, incomplete backstory elements, and abbreviated world building.

Lackluster and restrained, it employs a dull story to present a message about the importance of diversity and the evils of assimilation.

Tumbles into the lamentable category of what happens when a movie is assembled for no reason other than to make money, and when everyone involved is doing it for the paycheck.

Anyone with an interest would be advised to wait for this to reach smart phones and tablets where it can be viewed in a medium appropriate to its content and ambitions.

MPAA Rating: "PG"
Genre: Adventure/Fantasy/Musical
Director: Guy Ritchie

For a movie about magic, that’s one element sorely lacking in this retread.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller/Comedy
Director: Jonathan Watson

A tonal mess and its inconsistencies make it a frustrating viewing experience.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2018-07-10
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity, Sexual Content)
Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Jon E. Cohen
Cast: Rancel Edwards, Erin Karpluk, Michael Xavier, Erin Agostino, Jonas Chernick, Mia Kirshner

This superficial and lightweight approach might make for adequate TV viewing but it functions more as a clumsy tease than a satisfying motion picture.

Plodding, repetitive, replete with technobabble nonsense and lifeless action, this is easily the worst-written of any of the 20 to-date MCU offerings.
