How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Training an animated dragon after two successful previous films while appeasing the appreciative audience is the easy part.

Hence, writer-director Dean DeBlois does somewhat accomplish this feat for some more warm-hearted breeziness in the third instalment […]

X-Men: Dark Phoenix (second trailer: Poor Jean Grey: Sadly led Astray).

Ah, poor Jean Grey: so easily and so sadly led astray. In the much troubled and re-shot X-Men: Dark Phoenix she goes full postal and embraces her Inner Sith. That bodes badly for the rest of the X-Men, and at least one of them dies in her switch.
