    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★½

    Sure, it’s mostly just cheesy military propaganda, but it’s very well-made, highly entertaining cheesy military propaganda.

    Extremely predictable and formulaic, but a very fun time, bolstered by a thrilling final act, a phenomenal score, the radiant Jennifer Connelly, and some of the best actual acting Tom Cruise has done in a very long time.

    I want Glen Powell to do unspeakable things to me.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi

    ★★★

    I’ve loathed virtually everything that’s come out of the creatively bankrupt nostalgia circle jerk Disney era of Star Wars, but the promise of Ewan McGregor back as Obi-Wan Kenobi after 17 years proved impossible to resist.

    Ups:
    • The opening 😍

    • For the most part, less visually hideous than most of the grey slop that these Marvel and Star Wars Disney+ shows usually showcase.

    • Moses Ingram and the rest of the Inquisitors.

    • Ewan. It’s like no time…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    The darkest, messiest, weirdest chapter in the MCU thus far, featuring jaw-dropping visuals, a refreshing unpredictability, and an absolute trainwreck of a script held together by duct tape, prayers, and the almighty Elizabeth Olsen trying her damndest to make the whole thing work.

    Those first thirty minutes are rough, but once you resign yourself to M*chael W*ldron’s writing and the film’s breakneck pacing, and Raimi really starts swinging in the second half, Multiverse of Madness becomes a bit of a blast.…

    Beyond baffled by the near-universal acclaim this ugly, empty piece of work is receiving. Found nothing here but the blandest and cringiest of shallow social commentary and desperate, nasty shock value.

    Predictable plotting, cardboard characters, dialogue that feels like it was written by/for Twitter, plus the return of the Main White Woman’s Sassy Black Best Friend trope in the year 2022???
    I’ll eat elsewhere.
