Not sure I'm going to get to BbtL either. Honestly, Yesterday is the one I had/have passing interest in despite hating The Beatles for the most part, and also don't like BS too much, but nothing I've seen in relation to that film even make it seem better than watchable at best. At least with Yesterday I hear the ending is at least a little nuts.

The Dora movie is a pretty good kids/teen film, it has a great scene where Michael Pena sings EDM music. Don't think it's gonna win best surprise but it's probably my second/third favourite of the bunch.
