A collateral mess: Collateral Beauty disappoints

Will Smith fans may have been eager to hear that he would be acting in a new movie, Collateral Beauty.

The Disney princess franchise hits the mark again with "Moana", the story of a chief's daughter (not a princess), Moana (Auli'i Cravalho), who takes an adventure on the sea with the company of a shape-shifting demigod, Maui (Dwayne Johnson), and an irritating but lovably dim witted rooster to save the world from complete ecological destruction (pretty standard, as Disney films go). Though the plot may drag a little, "Moana" is a heartfelt and exciting movie for all.
