Toy Story 4 was expected to take the no.1 spot, so no surprise there. Though I'm very surprised to see Child's Play at the no. 2 spot since I thought it'd be way lower.

Just got done watching Toy Story 4.

Don't know how they managed to make a series as consistent across all 4 films as this one, but they did. Wasn't the best of the lot, I'd say, but still really good.
Maybe a bit too much Woody focus is about the only criticism I can think of. That ending though...I wasn't crying, you were.

While I'm not surprised Spider-Man beat out Toy Story 4 for the no.1 spot, I still wished it was at the top. Ah well, no.2 spot isn't bad. Speaking of Toy Story 4, I forgot to mention that I finally saw it, and it was great.

Also I'm actually surprised that Midsommar is at the no.6 spot. It looked like a movie that wouldn't break the top 10 at the box office tbh. I guess movies about cults still fascinate people?

Hard pass on both. They don't interest me one bit, Stuber looks highly unfunny and I know any jokes are gonna fall flat to me, personally. Crawl looks like it's trying to imitate the Jaws franchise but with alligators, hopefully no sequel comes out of this.

if an alligator gets into your house, why wouldn't you just go outside? I'd rather deal with the hurricane than get eaten by a gator, and I live in FL

Passing on the CG remake of Lion King. I really loved the original 1994 movie, and I know I won't enjoy this one much if at all. Also I don't like the new voice cast for it, aside from James Earl Jones of course since he's the only original returning cast member (understandable of course, he has a very distinctive voice and was great as Mufasa in the original), and Beyoncé as Nala really doesn't do it for me. It's also a crime not bringing back Jeremy Irons as Scar, imo. Would've been nice to see the rest of the old cast brought back, aside from young Nala and Simba and of course Sarabi which all three are understandable (two are adults now and Madge Sinclair has sadly long been passed) to recast.
