The Matrix Resurrections

Matrix Resurrections – The latest sequel that nobody asked for, The Matrix Resurrections failed to live up to the hype of the original trilogy and suffers from being an overindulgence of meta-commentary.

Nightmare Alley

Nightmare Alley – A swing and a miss this boring noir drama is brimming with quality visuals and A list talent. Bradley Cooper, Rooney Mara, and Cate Blanchett put the story through its paces and make it watchable to a point, but it is a hard watch.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spider-Man No Way Home is the ultimate fan service hype machine but it is still the most fun and well-executed MCU entry since Endgame. There’s a lot to love about this Spider-Man movie, but there are a fair amount of flaws that prevent it from being great. Drawing vast influence from previous iterations and animated versions, No Way Home is without a doubt the MCU event of the year and will ultimately provide a shot in the arm for the theater industry.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City – While not an awful movie, it is ultimately and unfortunately par for the course as a video game movie. Johannes Roberts captures more of the atmosphere and visuals of the games while presenting a more faithful story than previous iterations. B-Tier casting and rushed dialogue do this reboot no favors, but it is a low bar to clear and will ultimately garner a few sequels.
