Watched Mortal Engines for a family film night. My son is a big fan of the books - I must read them myself. I know it got a bit of a panning, but I thought it was pretty good. Yes, at times it was derivative. Yes, at times the dialogue was clunky. But it had some good visuals and the story was enjoyable - we had a good time.

Watched Rogue One for our family Star Wars season - not sure if it’s the second or third time. Love it. The two weird uncanny-valley CGI characters aside, that is. Otherwise everything is right with it.

Signed up to Disney+ so that we can binge on some stuff over the summer. Might only do it for a couple of months but given my son currently lives and breathes Star Wars, seems like a good idea.

Watched Free Solo again, this time my son watched as well. Alex Honnold makes thought provoking comments throughout the film about fear and dealing with it. Timestamps noted so that I can go through later and jot down the bits that got my attention.
