Fantasy Movies of 2020
(2.5 Stars) As to be expected, terrific visuals. But the story is a little weak and the songs aren’t memorable.
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
(2.5 Stars) A good family movie: Kids will be entertained by the humor and the dragons; Adults will be mesmerized by the beautiful imagery.
I Lost My Body
(4 Stars) A surprising mental challenge exploring destiny and free will, but definitely not a family movie
Maleficent: Princess of Evil
(1.5 Stars) Some fun visual moments do not make up for a plodding story. Pfeiffer occasionally shines, but Jolie’s talent is wasted.
(2.5 Stars) Has some terrific stop-motion animation scenes with rich backgrounds. Story-line a little weak, but a good family movie.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
(3.5 Stars) I suppose if you are a Star Wars buff, you will be disappointed. But for the rest of us, it is just plain fun.
