3.5/5 79% Mary Poppins Returns (2018) The film has its issues, but so did the original. That they were able to get this close to capturing the magic of the original film is miraculous. - Bullz-Eye.com EDIT

3.5/5 88% Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018) Ralph Breaks the Internet is a bit like Deadpool 2 in that, while the element of surprise is lost, the film is far funnier than its predecessor. - Bullz-Eye.com EDIT

1.5/5 48% Downsizing (2017) Alexander Payne is 'credited' with directing the film, but it's clear that he was bound, gagged, thrown in a locker and left for dead the moment Matt Damon's character makes the jump to Smallville. - Bullz-Eye.com EDIT
