With the help of his loyal protector Butler, 12-year-old genius Artemis Fowl, descendant of a long line of criminal masterminds, seeks to find his mysteriously disappeared father, and in doing so, uncovers an ancient, underground civilization—the amazingly advanced world of fairies. Deducing that his father’s disappearance is somehow connected to the secretive, reclusive fairy world, cunning Artemis concocts a dangerous plan—so dangerous that he ultimately finds himself in a perilous war of wits with the all-powerful fairies.
Is it Worth a Watch?
I had high hopes for this movie, it has a strong cast, the book was fantastic, and it had the potential to turn into a huge franchise. It’s not the worst movie ever and will likely be appealing to kids but it fails to connect with the older audience which is why I don’t think we’ll see a second.
Nerdy Popcorn Review
The CGI was awful, the magic didn’t resonate, and the story was kind of boring. I could see this movie being ok if the kids run out of content and you need something to put on.

Release: February 21, 2020 Director: Chris Sanders Box office: $107.6 million Budget: $109 million USD
Get your Popcorn ready because I absolutely love Dogs, and when I saw the trailer for this I quickly called me Dog over so we could watch it together. Harrison Ford is a absolute legend and I can honestly say that there are few Harrison Ford movies that I don’t like.
I had a couple issues with this movie, it all felt very rushed and for some reason the story splits between two main characters, which kind of threw me off. I also felt like they could of had a little better continuity. There were 4-5 different stories that didn’t really intertwine.
The movie was enjoyable, and Ford was great, but the biggest flaw in this movie was the fact that all the dogs in every scene are CGI. No real dogs in any of the scenes, I understanding doing this if the Dogs have lines and a dialogue but they don’t, so it just seemed odd. The CGI is probably why the budget for this movie was $100M plus – if they would of used real Dogs, it may have reduced the budget and made it much more enjoyable.
Rating: 3 out of 5.
This is kind of a fun family movie, although, there is some seriously heavy parts. I enjoyed watching it with my dog but he didn’t enjoy it as much because the Dogs were all CGI in the movie.
Not much is known about the plot of the 3rd installment in this franchise. Will Smith had this to say “Essentially Martin’s character wants to retire, something happens in the movie and my character really doesn’t want to retire. ‘There’s a mission we must go on and he’s refusing” Classic Bad Boys plot.
The much anticipated second instalment of The Lego Movie is slated for release on February 8th, 2019, even at my age I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and can’t wait for the second.
I’m sure everyone will be happy to know that Chris Pratt will be returning to the franchise, but this time, he’ll be voicing two characters! While watching the trailer something stood out! His second character (Rex Dangervest) he’s described as a; Galaxy Defending, Archeologist, Cowboy, and Raptor Trainer.
Well, folks, May 24th is around the corner and Solo: A Star Wars Story has a new trailer! I watched it, I loved it, but I’m biased. Han has always been my favourite Star Wars character, Harrison Ford absolutely crushed that role, and, I’m hoping that Alden Ehrenreich does the same.
There have been numerous issues that have plagued this movie but based on what I’ve seen in the latest trailer it looks like Ron Howard was able to save Solo. One thing to note is that due to the size/popularity of the Star Wars franchise, it is inevitable that every single speed bump or non-story would be blown out of proportion.
I don’t think Solo will be breaking any all-time box office records but it will crush the opening weekend and do well. I kind of wish the release date was May 4th, it would have been perfect to include this movie into my planned Star Wars Day.
