Disney’s Encanto follows a member of a magical family, Mirabel, who doesn’t have any
gifts. When the magic begins to fade, Mirabel makes it her mission to prove to her family that
she doesn’t need gifts to be helpful.
Encanto is a beautiful movie that shows the problems that tend to arise in large families,
like being overshadowed by your siblings. This movie broke me in a way that hadn’t happened in
a while (I cried 5 times). The music in this movie is also great as it was composed by
Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of Hamilton. This movie is a great intro for Disney’s 2020’s
and deserves a watch at some point.
Bruce Wayne is in his second year as Batman and is tasked with finding a serial killer who goes
by the name The Riddler, a man who wants to inflict as much damage to Gotham as nothing good
has ever come out of it for him.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman is the most realistic take on the Dark Knight, but also the most
dark. This gritty adaptation pulls off some of the best cinematography I have ever seen which
really helps cement this as my favorite Batman movie of all time.
The LEGO Movie
Set in a LEGO dimension, an ordinary construction worker accidentally becomes “The Chosen One”
and gets caught in a plot to overthrow the tyrant of the different LEGO worlds.
This movie is so good because it resembles the imagination of a kid playing with LEGOs like
many of us have done. The visuals, acting, story, everything is awesome! A perfect movie to
please the whole family.
The Iron Giant
A kid discovers a giant robot in the woods, but doesn’t want to let anyone find out. The
government tries to take the robot away, but the kid tries his best to prevent his friend from
being taken away.
This movie has so much heart and enjoyment stuffed into its top notch animation from the 90’s
that it’s nearly impossible to dislike. Not many animated movies shine harder than Disney
movies, but The Iron Giant ends up achieving that feat.
