    Jungle Cruise

    I was with it until the third act where too many characters, too many villains in particular and too many rules come to a head in a forgettable macguffin romp that is utterly pointless if they would all just grab for the endless amount of macguffin magic petals instead of fighting. It's aggravating.

    And more aggravating is that Emily Blunt is good as she always is. It's such a shame that the material doesn't even meet her half way. I had hoped I would like this, but this is forgettable dreck. If movies really are dying off, this is the adventure blockbuster circling the drain.

    Carried Away

    Incredible cinematography, but I never need to see another movie about a middle age man sleeping with an underage girl and the world shrugging about it. It's not as nuanced as this script seems to think.
