    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★

    Pretty decent once it turned into a Raimi horror-comedy! But man, it was quite a slog to get there. Well over an hour of pure exposition. Characters speak to each other exclusively in lengthy paragraphs of necessary information. At several points it feels like it’s barely a movie. But the finale is very Raimi and very fun, just wish it was attached to a more coherent film.

    This is obviously an incredible debut. I don’t think there’s a lot I can say about the Coens that hasn’t already been said, but I was pretty blown away by this so I feel compelled to write something.

    Dear Mr. The Riddler,

    Just because something rhymes, that does not make it a riddle. Questions that rhyme, threats that rhyme, instructions that rhyme, statements of fact that rhyme, it doesn’t matter. These are not riddles. There are copious rhymes in this movie and only like 3-4 riddles, one of which is said by another character. The rhyme-to-riddle ratio is way off. Just go by The Rhymer.
