Mini Film Review: Night at the Museum 3  
I was never that attached to the franchise but since it was ending I felt like I should complete the trilogy.

Well, I didn't cry. Not that I wasn't moved but it didn't end in tears which made me feel more like my old self again after Paddington and Big Hero 6.

I actually made it through all the goodbyes at the end without getting too upset though I got the most sad when Roosevelt was saying farewell. Mainly because it became that much more apparent to me that this was Robin Williams' last film. It helped a ton that everyone came back to life at the very end thanks to the British Museum exhibition stopping off in New York. But I was probably the most melancholy over the fact that Larry didn't join them for one more night. It makes sense in that he's moved on to the next stage of his life but I was still holding out hope that he'd go in. But alas.

The rest of the movie was a fun lighthearted affair. I liked the random appearances of Hugh Jackman ("Huge Ackman?!") and Alice Eve as themselves. And I liked Ahkmenrah's clear embarrassment when his parents launched into talking about how much they liked all the Jews they owned to Larry. Lancelot was a complete dick and infuriating for most of his appearance but I guess that was the purpose for plot reasons. And also characteristically not that off point from the actual legend of Lancelot. My applause to Dan Stevens for giving it his all. Especially with the nose.

I'm glad that in the end, the tablet is still out there, making museum figures come to life. And now they have Rebel Wilson looking after them.

I wasn't expecting much so I was pleasantly surprised that it was a bit better then those bits Steve Allen would do with historical figures on PBS
