    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    Are You Happy?
    After No Way Home and Loki, Marvel delves further into the multiverse with the latest Doctor Strange instalment which lives up to its titular madness.

    Sam Raimi takes the directorial reins and it was exhilarating to see him bring his visual flair to the screen infusing his horror roots and dynamic camera work into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although I was surprised by how dark they managed to take this narrative, there were a few moments where…

    Laundry and Taxes
    Expectations for films can make or break an experience.
    Sometimes your expectations are so high that simply being average can tarnish the whole experience. Sometimes a film with no expectations can take you by surprise and blow you away.

    Everything Everywhere All At Once dropped an intriguing trailer out of nowhere in December and gradually has been rolling out across the world in limited release with the buzz for this independent film growing by the day. I…

    Thunderball

    ★★★

    The Specter of Defeat.
    On paper, Thunderball has everything you need from a James Bond film. The globe-trotting action sequences, gadgets, cheesy one-liners - but this installment is missing the charm that comes hand in hand with the series.
    The underwater sequences stand as the biggest strength and weakness of the film. The practical side of the staging is really impressive and it brings a grand scale to the production. But the thing about underwater filming is it can bring…

    Swiss Army Man

    ★★★★

    Everyone Will Feel a Little Bit Less Alone.
    Before Daniels were verse-jumping through realities, they were on a deserted island with a flatulent corpse that looks like Harry Potter.
    Swiss Army Man turns the absurd and immature into touching and unexpectedly profound with energetic direction, inventive set design, and two wildly different but just as effective lead performances.
    Daniels balancing act of tones is really a testament to their passion and although this film falls more into the crude, for…

    Soul

    ★★★★★

    Your Life is About to Start.
    Pixar has tackled our emotions, our childhoods, and even the monsters under our bed, so it makes sense that their next logical step would be to discuss the meaning of life.
    Soul is the story of Joe, who after losing his passion gets the chance to evaluate his life when he is transported out of his body to the great beyond. But more importantly, Soul is a clear and obvious reminder of why Pixar…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    You're Struggling to Have Everything You Want.
    Time will tell whether I am running high off adrenaline but regardless No Way Home is an ambitious, exhilarating and guaranteed audience pleaser that takes bold risks that pay off in a huge way.
    Tom Holland gives his most emotion-filled performance to date, stepping up as the hero he was always meant to be and giving the suggestion of 'great responsibility' that every iteration of the hero holds so dear a try.
    It's…
