Dora and the Lost City of Gold (2019)

Even with that review, I'm still not tempted to see this movie.

Yeah, the "drug" scene was weird.

Demographically, this film is in a very strange place. The original cartoon is aimed at preschoolers, but the film clearly has to aim higher than that... but not *too* high, age-wise. So it's one of those films about high-school students that were clearly made for kids who haven't started high school yet... which means my 13-year-old daughter is, in some ways, the perfect target audience for this film: she was curious to see just what the filmmakers had done to this character that she used to watch, years ago.

Me, I liked some of the meta riffing on the Dora franchise, but I got bored during the final half-hour, when the film became just another Indiana Jones rip-off. (And I've already shown my kids three of the Indiana Jones films, so they're familiar with *those* reference points.)
