    Jurassic World Dominion

    ★★★

    Better than the last one with the cloning twist (although the clone teenager is still annoying as hell). But here’s the thing, I’m going to see a Jurassic movie for DINOSAURS. Personally, I felt this was bland and replaced a lot of dinos with a prehistoric locust storyline. If I wanted locusts, I’d go see The Mummy, I want DINOSAURS.

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    I didn’t expect this close of a remake of the original and I definitely didn’t expect the turn this took in the third act. The dialogue isn’t great either, but then again, who’s seeing Top Gun for the script. But this movie delivers with the flight sequences and is just an incredibly fun experience all-around. It’s everything you love from an 80’s action nostalgia flick mixed with the best modern-day practical effects and I can’t wait to see it again in imax.

    I’m sure someone who loves this will tell me how the ending is brilliant and how I “jUsT dOnT gEt It”. All I have to say to them is FUCK OFFFFF.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★½

    In Robert Eggers style, it’s a weird movie. It has some very good shots and is mesmerizingly weird early on as it immerses you in Nordic myth. It also has a very effective twist and the fight scenes are badass, Skarsgard is definitely rocking shit in this one. Yet, as it goes along, I couldn’t help but find my mileage waning with this one. Eventually, I just didn’t want to be in this particular world anymore and found myself itching…

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★½

    It’s not enough to just bring in a good Director, you actually have to let that Director do what he’s known for as well, aka let him cook. In this case, it’s cool they brought in Sam Raimi, but what’s the point if you’re going to overly rein him in and sanitize his product. The best parts of this are the pure fun Sam Raimi shit, the worst parts are the overexposition of broader MCU implications. Just creates an overall “UGH” feeling leaving the theater.

    This dumb movie really used an example of a guy leading the process of laying off 200 workers as a mcguffin to show how great he was. This movie can fuck right off.

  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    ★★½

    Sad to say this one was just kinda boring. It feels like they dumbed down a lot of the jokes from the first one to make it more kid-friendly which is fine considering who this is for, it just did nothing for me.

  • Morbius

    Morbius

    ★½

    There’s no other way to put this. Some might call it dreadful, some might call it horrible, I prefer to call this atrocious.

  • Ambulance

    Ambulance

    ★★★★

    It’s not for everyone but I had an absolute blast watching this movie. There’s a lot of love-it-or-hate-it, as is the case with most Michael Bay movies but I pretty much loved every choice made here. An eminently rewatchable basic cable movie has been born.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★½

    With an asterisk since I was asleep or fighting sleep for a solid 30-45 minutes of a 10:15 showing. What I did see was unique but honestly overwhelming and I’ve been informed it’s way better on a second viewing. I’ll set aside the qualms I have about movies that “need to be seen multiple times to be understood/enjoyed”.

    It’s easy to see why so many Oscar voters seem to be gravitating towards this movie for Best Picture. It’s everything The Power of the Dog isn’t, in that it’s heartwarming, easy to follow, and doesn’t have a lot of subtext or intricacies to its plot or characters. This is the fine, solid, crowd-pleaser of the year and even I’ll admit, the final audition scene got me at the end. 


    What this movie also confirms however is how little…

    Considering all the negative reaction I had encountered with regards to this movie, I found this to be a lot better than I anticipated it to be. It’s certainly a slow burn and, like every Jane Campion movie, has some flaws that will turn off a lot of people. But frankly, I enjoyed the slow burn of it and the way Campion paints complete portraits of each main character. It’s not the best picture of the year, but it’s…
