    Firestarter

    ★½

    Despite my curiosity, I had my suspicions about the Firestarter remake. It's bland. Really bland. The story is in such a hurry, and we are thrust into the world sacrificing any character development.

    Carpenter and co's score is really the only saving grace here. Honestly this score should have probably been saved for a better project.

    Thank god I watched this on digital so I didn't have to burn it.

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★½

    The first Doctor Strange movie might be the most luke warm of the the MCU....for me. So it's really not so much the film's fault, but my own. I'm just not invested in the character like showrunners like Iron Man and Cap.

    But after No Way Home that changed. Strange was a major plot point for that film and the ending left the doors, and the multi-verse, wide open. So you bet your sweet time stone I was game for…

    Halloween Kills

    ★★★★½

    I'll admit I had a similar reaction coming out of H2018 as I did Kills. BUT...the big difference here is my expectations were far lower due to my feeling settling in for the first movie. Kills surprised the hell out of me honestly, delivering punctuated kills, a brewing message throughout of mob mentality, and some pretty shocking surprises in the character department.

    Myers is such a force in Kills thanks to Courtney's fine tuned robotic stroll. The "man" is gone.…

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★½

    Zack Snyder's Justice League is a lesson in proper handling of a story, especially in terms of editing, pacing, character building, and even cinematography. It just feels more cohesive. And the 4 hour runtime only benefits it (Snyder has included convenient chapter points).

    If you're a fan of Man of Steel and Batman v Superman, you will definitely be happy as it rounds out the story quite well and offers possibilities to move forward.
