War of The Worlds

War of The Worlds – A strange mid 2000s Spielberg sci-fi adaptation, War of The Worlds is enjoyable to an extent but the lackluster CGI, weak PG-13 rating, and bizarre Tim Robbins casting make this more of a headscratcher.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – It takes a while to get going and doesn’t quite add up to a great movie. There are oddly placed scenes and the usual clunky dialogue with less than stellar CGI that is becoming more and more problematic as the MCU goes on. Sam Raimi brings together a very familiar cast with a few new faces and creates one of the most promising Marvel movies to date because of the doors it opens for the rest of the multiverse. While he was allowed to push the PG-13 rating to its limit, the implied horror and brutality fell short of expectations.

The Lost City

The Lost City – A dumb love story with some action bolted on without any real chemistry from the main cast. The Lost City is not worth the ticket price but might be worth the rental for a rainy afternoon.

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent – An exercise in meta storytelling, with lots of real-world commentary. It’s a great concept with lots of potential payoff but it comes off as incredibly shallow but not quite boring.

The Northman

The Northman – an unapologetically violent and masterfully made story about revenge, The Northman is not for the faint of heart. Animalistic and brutal scenes paired with stellar casting and an otherworldly soundtrack make this new adventure from Robert Eggers a can’t miss experience from start to blood soaked finish.

Young Frankenstein – An absurdly funny classic comedy from the genius mind of Mel Brooks, brought to life by the one and only Gene Wilder.
