Dog Max’s family gains a child; elsewhere, there’s a zoo tiger to rescue. Episodic and somewhat contrived sequel that delivers in some scenes, but which doesn’t hang together as a movie. Some sharper jokes this time out though, and both a lovely chase climax and a lesson learned for our protagonist.
A New Yorker’s pet dog has to cope with a new arrival, and then getting lost in the city. Okay animation that dispenses with its potentially-subversive title in the first few minutes for something more linear and straightforward. Bright, though, with some good gags. Fun while it’s on. A sequel soon followed.
Journalist Eddie Brock is infected by an alien parasite; an uneasy alliance is formed. Mostly fun horror-comedy with a whiff of the first Quatermass story. A clunky third act and obvious subplots slow matters down, but the scuzzy ambience and Hardy’s performance help.
