    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    I was a fan of the first Doctor Strange, and in general, I like the goofy sci-fi MCU movies. After the overabundance of multiverses in Rick and Morty, Spider-Verse, and Everything Everywhere All at Once, multiverses are sadly a little less...exciting to me at this point. The higher risks, the lack of sanitization, and fun with the camera made this a fun ride though.

    Please let Sam Raimi direct the rest of the cinematic universe.

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★

    The pacing was really weird, but when this whole thing is parody, I guess it fits. Not a lot of breathing room though.

    I feel bad for saying this, but I almost would’ve been more interested if this was about an actor you wouldn’t expect to be in a situation like this. Like Tom Hanks or Dennis Quaid as a washed-up actor turned accidental CIA informant. Or maybe even like a family movie actor or comedian who is actually a…

    ★★★½

    I sure hope this and the new Puss in Boots are the final death blow for the standard DreamWorks art style once and for all.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★

    Revenge is a really solid and simple starting point for a movie, just about every time. I spent part of this trying to figure out where Eggers was creatively interfered, because plenty of this doesn’t feel mainstream or comfortable for the American public. The only thing I feel somewhat confident in is that he might’ve wanted it even longer. Society needs more rituals!

  • Ambulance

    Ambulance

    ★★★½

    Wouldn't have really discerned this as a Bay flick, since it's not the most explodey (still explosions, but mostly on freeways). He makes a pretty solid picture under these circumstances. Unhinged Jake G is always nice.

    I guess the problem with bank robbery car chase movies at this scale is I don't believe they really happen in real life, but that doesn't take away the well-done tension. I say let the man have fun with his toys and playsets.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    Daniels find a lot of endearment in the absurd, and I sure do too. You already know that Michelle Yeoh is perfect here, but I gotta compliment Ke Hay Quan for being fantastic in this. Here he is out of the gates of early retirement in his biggest release in about 30 years and being not really being talked about since Indiana Jones: Temple of Doom until now. Playing different versions of yourself is no easy task, and he really…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Damn, ParaNorman owned his ass pretty hard

  • Don't Look Up

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★

    Didn't get many laughs out of me, although I think Jonah Hill has a funny delivery almost every time. But this takes a deep dive into horror, because it feels like the most plausible end-of-the-world story. We're not all gonna band together like Armageddon. We're just gonna argue about it with idiots and die. That's where this earns the "Like" button.

    It still feels a little further off from reality when they have to change a lot of the key…

  • Being the Ricardos

    Being the Ricardos

    ★★★

    In execution, the two leads aren't as out of place as I expected. The age inconsistency is just unfortunate. I really didn't give care that Kidman wasn't a spitting image of Lucille Ball when Debra Messing sounds nothing like her. That whole controversy on Twitter was dumb.

    I'm just not really sure what Sorkin adds to his scripts by directing them himself now. David Fincher and Bennett Miller give it that extra push - cause they're directors with a visual…

    ★★★½

    All I’m saying is if I was in that farm with my friends, things wouldn’t have went down like it did.

    Should’ve called it Sex. Imagine how funny it’d be to say “I’d like one ticket to Sex, please” lol

    You know, just an observation - he could've saved himself a lot of time writing the Big Song for his workshop if he didn't write and sing all of those musical numbers about his girlfriend and working at the diner. One song at a time!

    Watched after a terrible Sunday shift amidst questioning my future and job path. My life a movie fr!
