T-Meter Title | Year
9/10 99% 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 EDIT

6/10 57% 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 EDIT

10/10 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 EDIT

6/10 66% 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 EDIT

9/10 94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) Avengers: Endgame is the realization that all of these Marvel movies are so much more than just 10+ years of entertainment - they're family. - Raising Whasians EDIT

6/10 47% Dumbo (2019) Dumbo is an unexpected flight that shows the world how our own uniqueness can soar. It's a "feel good" movie that probably won't win any awards, but will win over a new generation of Dumbo believers. - Raising Whasians EDIT

7/10 78% Captain Marvel (2019) A blast from the past, literally. For the most powerful super hero in the Marvel universe, I'm not quite sure this movie lives up to the hype...yet. Girl power, yes. Earth shattering plot? No. But you forget how talented Samuel L. Jackson is. - Raising Whasians EDIT

9/10 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) Would have been "practically perfect" except for one questionable scene that would have made Julie Andrews cringe. Otherwise a happy period to put on the end of a 2018 year. - Raising Whasians EDIT

7/10 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) A decent sequel tackling today's technology addicted society with puns, heartfelt moments & familiar characters - all with longer effects than a random "pop-up ad." Not as good as the original, but honestly did we expect that? - Raising Whasians EDIT
