Dark Phoenix Review (2019): Wax Nostalgic and Say Goodbye

Sophie Turner as Dark Phoenix

It was alright. This is perhaps the most underwhelming opinion anyone can have about a movie, but that’s exactly my take on Dark Phoenix.

Tomatometer: 46% Audience Score: 33% IMDb: 5.8  There are some points to get out of the way before digging into Elizabeth Harvest.

Tomatometer: 44% Audience Score: 51% IMDb: 6.4  After much controversy surrounding the casting of Scarlett Johansson, Ghost in the Shell started off on the wrong foot with both critics and fans.
