9.5/10 88% Akira (1988) It's dark and violent but, because it is so creative, it is a really fun experience. It's like Inception but way more trippy!‐ Rotoscopers

9/10 92% Thor: Ragnarok (2017) It is on-brand but full of Waititi's delightful eccentricities and gleeful exuberance. It's a joyful film to watch with something to entertain just about anyone‐ Rotoscopers

8/10 100% Maquia: When the Promised Flower Blooms (2018) Not only is this film extremely ambitious but it is also a sweet heartfelt story about the bond between a mother and her adopted son‐ Rotoscopers

8.5/10 97% Black Panther (2018) The characters are strong and it asks questions that will have you thinking long after you left the theater. It's not just a good superhero movie but a good thoughtful movie full of diverse and interesting perspectives.‐ Rotoscopers

7/10 60% Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation (2018) It's not a film that will be discussed come Oscar season but it is still enjoyable. It's funny, has a sweet message and the animation really sparkles‐ Rotoscopers

4/10 92% Sorry to Bother You (2018) You can have interesting ideas and creative storytelling methods but if it is presented in a maddening, chaotic way than we leave feeling frustrated more than inspired.‐ 54disneyreviews.com

7/10 57% A Dog's Way Home (2019) The acting is all solid and the message is heartfelt. It's a movie that reminds us to be grateful for man's best friend‐ 54disneyreviews.com

2.25/5 86% Modest Heroes (Ponokku tanpen gekijô: Chiisa na eiyû - Kani to tamago to tômei ningen) (2019) Unfortunately like Mary and the Witch's Flower the film doesn't quite live up to the great potential the studio offers. It's a harmless grouping of shorts but one that will soon be forgotten‐ Rotoscopers

2/10 13% Life Itself (2018) What surprised me the most about Life Itself is how cynical it was... It left me feeling cold. Nearly every character either dies, gives up or settles for convenient love.‐ 54disneyreviews.com

8/10 92% Bumblebee (2018) In what feels like a reboot Knight takes the character of Bumblebee and crafts an immensely satisfying, heartfelt film that the entire family will enjoy.‐ 54disneyreviews.com

9/10 78% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) To say I was swept away in an experience of pure joy would be an understatement. It was true Disney magic and I loved it!‐ 54disneyreviews.com

3/10 64% Aquaman (2018) Aquaman's script is plodding and lacking the emotional weight or character development it needs to draw the viewer in‐ 54disneyreviews.com
