The Nutcracker and the Four Realms poster

Lush and extravagant winter fairy tale. For some reason this Disney adaptation of the Nutcracker flunked, but it's one of the nicer things I've seen them do the past couple of years. Imaginative and beautifully realised fantasy elements make this one worth the gamble. Better than I expected.

The Rocketeer

The Rocketeer poster

Pretty cheesy pre-Marvel superhero nonsense. The setting is actually quite charming and the Rocketeer suit is well-designed, but the action falls short and the level of cheese gets pretty unbearable during the second half of the film. Its Disney roots are a little too apparent and they hold the film back.

Read all

Cliff is a young and promising pilot who stumbles upon a strange jetpack. He's able to fly the thing, but others are interesting in the jetpack too. One of those people is Neville Sinclair, a popular actor who plans to sell the jetpack to the Nazi. To get to the thing, he tries to go through Cliff's girlfriend.

Performances are gleefully over-the-top, the 1930s have been given a nice comic book shine and the suit is cool. But the green screen action is flimsy, the soundtrack is bad kitsch and the Nazi plot feels terribly outdated. Started out fun enough, but this is the type of film that gets worse by the minute.

Jumanji poster

Somewhat long and stretched out family adventure that is held back by a combination of outdated effects and bad CG. Williams is rather annoying, the game itself isn't that much fun and the trials and tribulations of the cast feels flimsy and inconsequential. No doubt this works better for kids, but I clearly prefer the reboot over the original one.
