5/5 59% Wonder Woman 1984 (2020) Wonder Woman 1984 recalls the kind of warm but welcomingly hokey nature of Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films when they were at their best. - Giant Freakin Robot EDIT

2/5 48% The Craft: Legacy (2020) [The Craft: Legacy has] a lack of effective comedy, an extremely mishandled villain, and a script that never feels as committed as the actresses that are on the screen. - Giant Freakin Robot EDIT

2.5/5 53% Hubie Halloween (2020) On its own, Hubie Halloween is a mediocre but mostly harmless little comedy. When grading on the Adam Sandler curve, it passes with flying colors. - Giant Freakin Robot EDIT

2/5 16% Ava (2020) By the end of the movie, Ava comes across less like a feature film and more like a weak pilot for a show that never got picked up to series. - Giant Freakin Robot EDIT
