As a film that explores the lives of two very different characters who are inexplicably drawn into each other's orbit, Danny and Abra (Kyliegh Curran), the movie shines.
Disney's sequel to "Maleficent" undoes the happy ending of the first movie, just so that it can keep its whole "evil" premise intact for the film.
The use of high frame rates for theatrical presentations has always been a little contentious, since many feel that it detracts from the traditional cinematic experience.

The iconic Pennywise, the most recognisable scary clown in pop culture, returns in It: Chapter Two to terrorise the same children, albeit now grown up, that it haunted in It.

Outside of Disney (and Disney-owned Pixar), it's difficult to find a good animated film that blends a good story with colourful and imaginative animation. It humanises its title character and makes you empathise with Nezha as a character, rather than just looking up to him as a mythological super-being.
