7/10 88% Onward (2020) Pixar hasn't lost the magic touch to pull at our heartstrings. But this original film had so much potential for being truly magical - but may be still missing "half" of the great stuff.‐ Raising Whasians

7/10 64% Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) Sonic the Hedgehog movie is the visual reminder that every underdog (under-hedgehog?) can have his day & rise up from heels of failure. One questionable scene for kids, but overall what a family-centered movie should be.‐ Raising Whasians

5/10 42% A Wrinkle in Time (2018) An extraordinary cast got lost in "time" with a muddled story. Not sure this one is time well spent.‐ Raising Whasians

7/10 94% Incredibles 2 (2018) While original, witty and super entertaining, this 14-year sequel also poses as a cautionary tale for future Pixar "family films." Disappointing in that regard‐ Raising Whasians

8/10 88% Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) After a heart wrenching and heavy Infinity War movie, we find a friend in the darkness. This sequel is the Marvel pause button - light at the end of the tunnel‐ Raising Whasians

6/10 48% Skyscraper (2018) It's the Die Hard summer blockbuster you'd expect, but not drawn out for the sake of more explosions. Don't expect any awards for this plot line.‐ Raising Whasians

6/10 14% Dolittle (2020) Kids will love it. Adults won't hate it. But with an all-star cast like that, I was disappointed that the story was a "woof woof."‐ Raising Whasians

8/10 52% Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Chaotic at times. Ruined with swear words & scenes too scary for kids. BUT, Episode IX brings balance to the force within all of us. And I think that's all we can truly ask for considering the impossible task Abrams was given.‐ Raising Whasians

8/10 77% Frozen II (2019) Inspiring, but misses my heartstring pull. Those expecting a sequel to be better than the original? Ya'll need to let it go. What Frozen 2 offers is hope for future Disney Princess sequels.‐ Raising Whasians

5/10 21% Playing with Fire (2019) Beneath the overacting, over-the-top antics, & non-original story, you would think this movie is all smoke & mirrors. But when you add up Cena's seriousness, Key's physical comedy, & Leguizamo's high strung energy, it's almost enjoyable to watch.‐ Raising Whasians

5/10 40% Maleficent: Mistress of Evil (2019) A predictable sequel that underwhelms not only this movie, but the only original Disney live-action concept that I actually enjoyed. It's too bad that this film is also too violent for kids.‐ Raising Whasians

6/10 81% Abominable (2019) Unoriginal at best, this easy to digest animated film for the whole family still brings something unexpected to the movie world - the normalization of diversity and representation in film.‐ Raising Whasians

7/10 84% Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019) Dora's awkward positivity & humor is a welcome reprieve in the live action world. Embodying child innocence, eliciting humor & enough action to keep audiences interested, it's a summer movie I expected to hate & didn't.‐ Raising Whasians

6/10 53% The Lion King (2019) When it comes to visuals, this movie gets the "lion share." Disneynature documentary or a CGI film? A visually stunning remake overall, except in the song department.‐ Raising Whasians

9/10 97% Toy Story 4 (2019) While not my favorite of the Toy Story films, Toy Story 4 is the relationship closure ending that we need to move from infinity to beyond. Bring all of the tissues.‐ Raising Whasians

6/10 60% The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) You can't teach a dog new tricks, but maybe you can teach humans that a cartoon sequel could be better than the original.‐ Raising Whasians

8/10 57% Aladdin (2019) It's the diamond in the rough live-action film that balances nostalgia with a fresh (prince?) view on a Disney classic. And I'm here for the magic carpet ride.‐ Raising Whasians

6/10 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) More of a nostalgic journey for super fans turned adults, this film nonetheless still has the charm of an adorable Pokémon cast and the humor of a toned down Ryan Reynolds who can still deliver a punchline.‐ Raising Whasians
