Yasuke (2021) Review – A Mediocre Story About A Really Cool Dude

Netflix Movie Review – Next Gen Is Just Better Big Hero 6

Okay, hear me out. First of all, I have a mixed opinion of Big Hero 6. I liked it a LOT, and Baymax is one of the most adorable characters to come out in recent memory, but the story itself wasn’t that good, in my opinion.
