    Enola Holmes

    ★★★

    As a massive fan of all the cast involved and, more relevantly, all interpretations of Sherlock Holmes, I was super excited for this movie. I’m pleased to report that it’s actually a pretty solid addition to the Holmesian canon.

    Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER

    ★★½

I like Kamen Rider and have seen a few episodes of Kamen Riders Kiva, Fourze, and Gaim as well as the various crossover movies with them but I’ve never actually completed any season. So I’ll be going into this basically blind and also reviewing it from the perspective of if it works as a movie. It actually does due in large part to the construction of the…
