Sorta. Dumbo now watches some dance performance where people use bubble wands to create pink elephants with bubbles. He's transfixed on it for reasons that go unexplained. Cute elephant tho

HOTEL MUMBAI was a difficult film to watch at times. Overstayed it's welcome a little bit (runtime of 122 minutes). The Armie Hammer storyline was hamfisted in to the story, which honestly, could have been done without and still come off just as good. 6/10

I found Dumbo to be pretty interesting. It has many flaws and is very arch in alot of moments. but its one of the better later Burton films. its a hard one to reccomend.

Disappointing to hear, but hardly surprising. I haven't liked a Tim Burton movie since Big Fish.

I skipped this as it came out the day before the Christchurch massacre. I'll catch it later in the year as it's an Australian film, but still... not looking forward to it.

Us is good, not great.

Pet Sematary is brilliant.

Shazam is a lot of fun, but takes its time getting to that fun.

The Beach Bum is my favorite movie of the year so far. Such a unique and hedonistic treat of a movie. Cant think of many like it.

Bummer that its not getting very good reviews and it didnt do very well this weekend. :?

Yeah with everything going on in Australia and New Zealand at the moment, this will be an even more difficult film I believe. Sorry for everything you're going through.

Seeing SHAZAM on Thursday and planning on seeing PET CEMETARY on Friday. Looking forward to both.

Totally agree and I love Disney movies. A complete mess. CGI was good.

SHAZAM! was a lot of fun. I didn't know much about the character going in to the film. Really the only thing I knew was he had many of the same abilities as Superman, but this is definitely one of the better DC movies as of late. Unfortunately, at times they almost "shove" their heroes in your face as one character constantly wears a Superman backpack, has Batman/Superman memorabilia in his room, at toy stores you only see Batman/Superman figures. I understand DC is wanting to promote their own brand and isn't going to plug Marvel; however, DC does have more superheros than Batman and Superman. Back to the film, it's funny, light-hearted and doesn't take itself too seriously. 6/10

I was pretty bored with PET SEMATARY and I should have known better. I have nothing against the man personally, but a handful of Jason Clarke's latest releases have been misses for me. From TERMINATOR GENISYS to WINCHESTER to the horrible SERENITY that was offered up earlier this year. I never read the book or saw the original so I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but the film takes some time to establish itself. The only part I somewhat enjoyed was maybe the last 5-10 minutes honestly. 5.5/10
