Child's Play (2019) woud have been insanely better if it was its own movie (use the bear design from the third act) and not try to just re-do a cult classic that's still churning out entries.
My Spy was perfect for what it was. Not much different from Kindergarten Cop, The Pacifier, The Game Plan and the like but Batista's comedic timing came off way better than usual in this one and this is easily the funniest thing Kristen Schaal has been in.

I enjoyed this one more than I expected too. I think some of the reviews with the mixed identity made sense where it is a little more aimed for families but a little bit more violent than you’d want for little kids and the use of uncensored Cardi B songs probably isn’t ideal for younger crowds.
I watched the three major new releases across larger streaming platforms from last Friday - My Spy, Scoob and Eurovision - and this was probably my favorite of the three.
Uh, "Flight of the Conchords"?
Eurovision was my least favorite. I went in with zero expectations and often wondered who Rachel McAdams made angry in Hollywood. But people like me continuing to watch keep it going.
I had seen some of the real Eurovision on TV when I went to Europe so I was inclined to watch anyway. I think people watching this is truly dependent on if they can sit through a present day Will Ferrell movie. He hasn’t had a good movie since Step Brothers and as much as I enjoy that, it isn’t really an objectively good movie, it’s more a series of really funny one-liners.
Also, if you haven't seen Onward (2019) yet, I highly recommend it. Better than the Pixar sequels that have been disappointing lately, but not touching the God-tier stuff like The Incredibles or Finding Nemo.
It resonated with my girlfriend and I, but stuff about [PLOT ELEMENT] usually hits both of us pretty hard. Especially now that we have a kid.I actually had gone to see it when it opened right before the theatres shut down and I enjoyed it but as you say there, it didn’t resonate with that special touch either. But still better than a lot of the other stuff out there.
After the events of the X-Files movie, Scully remaining a skeptic is super frustrating. Holy shit how could anyone write this.
