    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

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

    There were some missed opportunities, the movie could've been bigger than what it served up, but it was quite good nonetheless.

    I was disappointed to not see Vision in any universe, in any capacity. I get why we needed Christine to be there but I felt like the whole thing with her and Strange dragged along quite a lot. I enjoyed the cameos, this confirms that there will be X-Men and Fantastic 4, right? That's exciting. I also enjoyed the…

  • The Lost City

    The Lost City

    ★★★½

    You could be a cynical little bitch or you can just enjoy the ridiculousness and have fun. It's a classic Sandra Bullock gig, you have warm cuddly elements of comedy - the kind you associate with all the nice Sandra Bullock flicks. Channing Tatum and Brad Pitt in a ridiculous blonde wig? Love that. Psycho Daniel Radcliffe? Peak comedy. Some random island with random lore? Cool cool. Randy? Truly a star.

  • Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes

    Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes

    ★★★½

    Gacy: "I outsmarted you again"
    Death penalty: "You sure about that?"

  • Between Two Ferns: The Movie

    Between Two Ferns: The Movie

    ★★★½

    I really like the interview bits, those were hilarious. The film portions I didn't really care for, I wish they had more interviews instead, honestly.

  • L.A. Confidential

    L.A. Confidential

    ★★★½

    First time watching it and I couldn't get into it at first, Russel Crowe's character is kind of terrible and doesn't improve as the film goes on. Guy Pearce's jaw and cheekbones deserve an Oscar. It was wrapped up nicely but everyone saying it wasn't something you could guess was not paying attention or something. It's fun for the time, I enjoyed the atmosphere, it's worth a watch

  • 13 Going on 30

    13 Going on 30

    ★★★½

    Some movies just touch your heart forever, you can't help it. This is one of those movies. I haven't seen it in years but it was such a nice time rewatching it as an almost 30 year old.

  • Fresh

    Fresh

    ★★★½

    It's okay, it's okay, Cannibal Sebastian Stan can't hurt me

  • Eternals

    Eternals

    ★★★½

    There were times when I would've liked to get to know the characters more, to have time to figure out their powers and motivations, some of it seemed rushed. Overall, much better than what critics were saying, I had fun watching it, I also felt invested in the lives of many of these characters, I think it's a really cool direction Marvel is taking, and I certainly appreciated the diverse cast. Makkari and Druig are so lovely, I cannnot

  • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    ★★★½

    I think if I saw this when it came out, I would've enjoyed it a bit more. I really wanted to like it, and I did, but I wasn't that into it, it seemed somewhat dated and not that engaging to me, but I was expecting it to be a 5-star movie. It's still good, I had fun. It's not 5 stars tho.

  • Britney vs. Spears

    Britney vs. Spears

    ★★★½

    #freeBritney

    The documentary is not so in depth, but I'm glad to see that there is tangible proof that she's been fighting against this conservatorship since the beginning. I hope she sues the shit out of all of these fucking people, especially her scummy father.

  • Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★★½

    I thought the ending was kind of boring with the CGI bits (trying not to spoil lol), the fight choreography, the cinematography, the cultural elements etc were all beautiful, I quite liked the movie! Awkwafina is amazing.

  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★★½

    Rewatched this film after the initial hype I felt and I can see that there is a lot in writing and character development that just isn't the best, compared to Wonder Woman, for example. I think Brie Larson wasn't directed very well when she was getting her superhero costume on, the film is the most enjoyable when she's not doing stunts and superhero things. I like her interaction with Fury and the Rambeau family, she is more natural there. Her hero phase is still evolving, but the movie certainly doesn't deserve all the backlash it received when it came out.
