Seven Years in Tibet is one of the last movies I wanted to check out when it first came out. It came at a time when I was still a teenager so I didn't really have the mental maturity to go through the viewing. It didn't help that I thought it was a white savior movie from the trailer. Fast forward to 2020 and I'm willing to give these movies a try. I was pleasantly surprised with A River Runs Through It, so why not check this one out too.
Captain Courageous is a movie that I have never heard of. Netflix has had a good batting average with me so I thought I'd check it out. What I experienced from this movie was nothing more than a cookie cutter low budget movie. There's elements of entertainment but for the most part it wasn't that great a ride.

Holmes & Watson is probably exactly what I'd expect from Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly teaming up to tell a Sherlock Holmes story. It is totally absurd and bonkers but whenever the two team up for a comedy they tend to be this way. If you liked their other team up comedies then you might enjoy this one as well. I would say it's one of their weaker movies but there is still some enjoyment here.
The Lego Movie: The Second Part is a sequel that I thought studios made just to cash in on the popularity of the first movie. Of course it is but I thought the original Lego movie was going to be a big advertisement as well. As much as the original movie was a big advertisement for Lego it was a surprisingly fun movie.
Happy Death Day 2 U is the sequel to a semi mediocre horror movie Happy Death Day. I did not expect them to bring this franchise back for a sequel let alone build on the original movie. The first movie wasn't that bad. I had a good time watching it and I still remember most of what had happened. There was a lot of throwbacks to the original movie. If you liked the first movie you should definitely watch this one.

After such a positive response to my recent post "Top 10 Most Forgotten Films of the 21st Century (so far)", I thought I'd pull a couple of reviews from the archives for movies featured in the list.
