Nostalgia is everyone’s happy place. It brings back happy moments, and we find love in each movie or song we listen to. Additionally, the experience of going to the cinema is a cure for our soul. This week is full of movies for all those 90s kids out there, so grab your buddies and head straight to the mall!
What’s it about? Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) is in love with the world around him and relishing every moment of his life as a toy. His son, Forky (voiced by Tony Hale), however, believes that he is not meant to be a toy. Woody decides to show Forky how to embrace his “toy life”.
The good: It’s the perfect mix of emotions and the ultimate dose of nostalgia.
The bad: People are criticising the fact that Pixar added another movie to a saga that did not have to exist, and could have lived without.
What’s it about? Men in Black have always protected Earth from the evil around the universe. Agent M and Agent H (Tessa Thompson & Chris Hemsworth) are the new galaxy defenders, and they embark on a new adventure to save the world.
The good: Director F Gary has no previous experience in the action-comedy genre.
The bad: Critics claim that the movie’s jokes seem forced, in relative comparison to the older Men In Black films.
What’s it about? Rocketman is a musical fantasy about Elton John’s breakthrough years. The movie takes its viewers through the journey of his transformation from shy piano prodigy, Reginald Dwight, into international superstar Elton John (Taron Egerton). It tells the story of a small-town boy turning into the most iconic figure in pop culture.
The good: Twitter is bursting with love for the movie, and social media users are comparing it to Bohemian Rhapsody, and Rocketman is so much better.
The bad: Some claim that the film failed to portray the true extent of the struggle the rockstar went through.
