I suppose many just can't wait to see The Lion King, and that's understandable. Disney spent a ton to make sure you are interested. I didn't like it all that much, but it certainly has moments that are stunning to look at. Additionally, I have some other reviews for smaller films going wider in their release, along with thoughts on the newest home releases. Plenty of new trailers came out this week to take a look at. Lastly, have fun listening to this week's double-review podcast covering Stuber and Crawl.
