Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a lot to process, especially on the initial viewing. While it was far from the perfect ride that some fans have called it, I can’t deny it was entertaining from start-to-finish. Benedict Cumberbatch knocks out of the park, but Elizabeth Olsen stole the show. Her portrayal of Wanda Maximoff, regardless of what one thinks of the character, is powerfully haunting. The visual scope on display is bonkers, mixed with elements of Sam Raimi’s…
Jackass Forever was so glorious. While it may not add anything new, it was so great seeing these guys on screen again performing wickedly dangerous stunts and having the time of their lives. Been loving them for years and anytime they come together, I get very giddy. If this is the end, they went out with a bang.
For where things are right now for me mentally, this was the movie I needed and I had a blast.
The Northman is another masterpiece from Robert Eggers. Visceral, brutal, epic medieval revenge tale that never overstayed its welcome. The performances are fantastic, with Alexander Skarsgård commanding the screen through his physically and emotionally gripping portrayal of Amleth. On a technical level, this is as close to perfect as you’d imagine. Flawless in every department. I’m unsure what goes on in Eggers’ head, but he continues to outdo himself film after film.
