    tick, tick...BOOM!

    ★★★★★

    The triumphant return of the movie musical! Fantastic film adaptation and loving homage to composer Jonathan Larson. Andrew Garfield's portrayal of Larson is absolute perfection, full of nuance and incredible attention to detail.

    Great performances by the entire cast and top-tier Broadway cameos throughout. Impressive debut of Lin-Manuel Miranda in the director's chair as well.

    ★★★

    Enjoyable film adaptation of my favorite pun-filled Disney ride. If you came for the puns, you can turn the movie off 20 minutes in when all the good ones (bad ones?) are exhausted.

    Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt don't have the necessary chemistry for the romantic lead roles for which they were cast, but nonetheless perform them to the best of their abilities.

    Decent lore built around a theme park attraction, but definitely had some familiar strains found in Pirates of the Caribbean.

    ★★★★

    Excellent comic book superhero origin film! Surprisingly violent for a movie that is viewed through the lens of childhood wonder.

    Good mix of heart and action with a great message about what makes a family and a home.

    Decent world-building, great animation style, and an interesting blend of many Southeast Asian cultures makes for a pretty entertaining watch. Worth the wait for it to come off Disney+ Premier Access.
