    64/100

    A movie that certainly wouldn't fly by in the age of cancel culture, Richard Donner's The Toy tells the bizarre story of a spoiled rich man's son who "buys" Richard Pryor at a toy store to make him his "toy".

    Yeah, it's a weird premise which if overthinked, has a lot of creepy undertones to it to where the easily offended would cry foul, get triggered, and accuse the film of being super racist and…

    20/100

    So this is the first time I've seen the theatrical cut of Justice League (or Josstice League, as many like to call it to differentiate the two cuts) since the release of the much-discussed Snyder Cut which has taken the world by storm.

    Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron

    An animated animal movie, made by the crudest animation studio ever, with no dialogue coming from our main horse characters except some cheesy narration from Matt Damon, a 100% serious plot with very little slapstick gags, alongside some top-quality and jaw-dropping mixtures of 2D animated characters and CG-animated landscapes, some high emotional trauma with sequences that rival How to Train Your Dragon, and the bizarre collaboration of music provided by Hans Zimmer and Bryan Adams of all people.

    One of DreamWorks' most spectacular and highly underrated films to date.

    King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

    I will never understand the mentality of modern filmgoers. They'll say they want something original and different, but when an original and different film comes out, they'll complain that it is weird, silly, and bonkers, even though the sequel or remake they just watched has the same elements and the love the living crap out of it (like Guardians 2, for instance).

    That's why I'm bummed that films like King Arthur: Legend of the Sword flopped, because in my eyes,…
