For the poor, unfortunate souls hoping this The Little Mermaid will either equal or surpass the animated version, disappointment will be their unhappy bedfellow.

Fast X is the most absurd entry yet in the long-running franchise, and that’s saying something, considering the crew journeyed into outer space in the previous installment.
Kids may have the time of their lives watching The Super Mario Bros. Movie, but for most adults, this is game over.
Rolling the dice on Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves is the way to go.
