As part of a delaying tactic for an internal power struggle at the Central Intelligence Agency, an everyman is pointed out as a pawn to be followed as a delaying tactic.

A fantastic, classic, movie. It's simple and with a light tone. I don't think it's particularly recommendable now, but I still like it.

A spoiled little girl loses her rich parents and is sent away to live with her reclusive heartbroken (rich) relative.

The story is fairly awful to me, though I can see how this was popular at the time. It has definitely aged, not just in its period but in its language and writing style.

I'll class this as "liked", but I only see this as being good for historical reasons and wouldn't recommend it. I'll also class this as child-friendly, except it's child-friendly in its context: A parent reading to their child in the early 1900s.

Monkey King - Hero Is Back (2015) poster 12

Something about trolls and such, and a little boy who probably becomes a hero.

I didn't get very far into this. It's way too over-the-top childish for my tastes. I would recommend this be watched by a parent with their kid. It seems action-packed yet "safe". Nobody dies, even through major fight scenes.

  • Properly titled Monkey King: Hero Is Back (2015)
  • 西游记之大圣归来 or Xi you ji zhi da sheng gui lai in Chinese
  • You may think that "is back" would mean this is a sequel. It is not.

to be re-watched, maybe

Pretty lame animated film, with a messed up plot.. focused around the fantasy world. It's neat.
