Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb (2014).

night_at_the_museum_secret_of_the_tomb_new_posterEven though I am getting older and way too close to the adult world for comfort, Night At The Museum will always be one of my favourite family-friendly movies ever.

With wit, trouble and extremely lovable on-screen characters, each movie has never failed to tug at my heart strings or make me laugh and embrace the silliness of serious situations. However, it is true that each movie seem to make use of the same formula again and again.

So if you truly want to enjoy it, just sit back, enjoy what they give you and laugh along. I promise it is way way waaaay better than Transformers. Naturally.

Basic synopsis: Larry Daley is back and traveling away from his favourite museum ever to solve the mystery and save the magic before it is too late. Along with his favourite exhibits, they embark on a journey to fix things while Daley is struggling to accept that his own son is growing up, and that it is time to let go.

Hmm, even though I really enjoyed the film, it is difficult to say if the characters had any growth or change at all from the first to the last of this franchise. The focus has always been about how different their personalities are and the friendships they have forged, or how they are always willing to help and support one another. And that is precisely what this feel good movie is about, so even though most critics are complaining… I do not really mind.

And let me just say that I have never ever disliked Sir Lancelot so greatly in my life. So good job Dan Stevens (IV), you portrayed him well.

On a side note, it was a pity that Rebel Wilson played such a small role. Her character was not much of a character, really. Just there to add some comedy, and considering how she is way more than that, it would have been great if she played a slightly bigger role.

Lastly, it was heartwarming to watch Robin Williams and Mickey Rooney work their magic on the final installment of this film. Their presence and their hard work will always stay with us, and I think that is one of the greatest things about film and technology.

Thank you so much to the Asian Civilisation Museum for the preview tickets. It was wonderful.
