Below is the synopsis of "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil," per IMDb.

Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies, and dark new forces at play.

"Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" does not hold a good Rotten Tomatoes rating, but the audience score is 96 percent (at the time of publication). Brian Lowry wrote for CNN

As is so often the case, Maleficent didn't exactly cry out for another chapter, but if forced to do one with a sharp spindle pointed at your head (or finger), this is about as good as one could have hoped.
That doesn't translate into magic, but in terms of improving on the original, giving the stars some reasonably good material to play and delivering action within its PG parameters, "Mistress of Evil" pretty much threads the needle.

Below is the synopsis of "Zombieland: Double Tap," per IMDb

Columbus, Tallahassee, Wichita, and Little Rock move to the American heartland as they face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors, and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.

"Zombieland: Double Tap" holds a fresh rating of 64 percent and an audience score of 93 percent on Rotten Tomatoes (at the time of publication). Chris Klimek wrote for NPR:

What's touching about Double Tap is also what's exhausting about it: It has even more callbacks to its predecessor than it does to a much older, more substantial post-apocalyptic movie franchise. The new, harder-to-kill species of zombie Double Tap introduces is referred to as a T-800, for example. For readers who haven't had the benefit of a well-rounded liberal arts education with a concentration in the classics, that was the model number of the cyborg tactical infiltrator Arnold Schwarzenegger played in The Terminator 35 years ago and shall again in that film's imminent fifth sequel. So in the parlance of this movie, nut up for Zombieland: Triple Threat, coming 2029, probably. Aw. It's almost like a real franchise.
