It’s very strange for me to say that I wasn’t expecting any new Harry potter-related movies to come out once the Anthology had ended. And yet, here we are, at the start of what appears to be a whole new Anthology! Will the venture back into the magical world be as good as we’d hoped?
Melissa McCarthy is an actress that I have found myself rooting for more than not, especially when her performance in last year’s “Spy” led to a properly enjoyable and fun comedy. She definitely has the talent when the right team and script are behind her. This? Well, whatever label you would give to the opposite end of the spectrum, this would fit into that.
Well well, I think we all remember the mess this movie stirred up prior to the theatrical release, with its pasty-white actors laughably placed in an ancient Egyptian setting. But, I was able to check it out on DVD to see if all the venom was validated. I don’t think the Gods will be on my side for this one.
From the large list of Summer releases in 2016, “The Secret Life of Pets” was one that did extremely well, in fact it did crazy numbers. Now that it’s time for me to finally take a look at it, can Illumination Entertainment score another win, or a swing and a miss?
We have been welcomed to the Galactic Universe already, but now it is Marvel’s time to show off the Mystic Universe with “Doctor Strange”. Profits remain exceptionally strong for the studio, but will the masses take to this story as well as the better known superheroes?
