    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    ★★★★½

    NO SPOILERS

    I remember the day that Chadwick Boseman passed away. We were in the middle of a raging pandemic and I was invited to go to Walt Disney World because the attendance rate was devastatingly low. With my masks, germy gel, and all the caution in the world, I went because a free ticket is a free ticket. As I entered the Disney Clothiers store and picked up a brand new Black Panther mask, I was finally ready to…

    Black Panther

    ★★★★½

    One of the best movie experiences of my life was seeing this at an advanced screening.

    The crowd was greeted by a live Q&A with the cast before the film started and it was just surreal. We've seen casts & crews of several other films gush about their projects but seeing Ryan Coogler & Chadwick Boseman get emotional on stage changed the atmosphere of the presentation.

    When the film finally started, it was like the audience was attending the Super Bowl.

    Christmas with the Campbells

    ★½

    Vince Vaughn & Peter Billingsley present 'Fuck you, Hallmark: The Movie'.

    'Christmas with the Campbells' is a parody of Hallmark films but it doesn't fully commit to being as batshit as it should be.

    When you are given the opportunity to mock a widely infamous film genre that is beloved by so many people every year, you HAVE to be as stupid as possible, no excuses.

    Sadly, this film is very self-restraint with its lunacy.

    For example, Jesse is a photographer…

    Troll

    ★★½

    A nearly shot-for-shot remake of 'Godzilla (1998)'...yes, the Roland Emmerich/Matthew Broderick one. I have no idea how this is legal or why anyone would want to copy THAT movie.

    'Troll' is a spiritual sequel to the cult film 'Trollhunter (2010)', only with a massive budget & top-notch special effects. Personally, this doesn't hold a candle to that Norwegian classic.

    While its script is shockingly similar to 'Godzilla (1998)', the action set pieces are akin to 'Kong: Skull Island'. There are even…

    Drive My Car

    ★★½

    Look, I don't want to upset anyone, nor should anyone's rating of a film be taken as a full-on insult, but I won't lie about my enjoyment of a film solely to "fit in".

    'Drive My Car' has all the ingredients for a compelling drama based on grief, regret, and bottled-up misery...but...that doesn't mean it had to be this monotonous.

    I mean, for a completely emotional story, why on earth is everyone emotionless? Like 90% of this film lacks any…

    Spirited

    ★★★★

    I like to imagine Ryan Reynolds was so sick of Hugh Jackman bragging about 'The Greatest Showman' that he went out of his way to make a movie that ridicules musicals out of spite.

    'Spirited' is a self-deprecating Christmas musical that hates its own existence and I love it.

    Charles Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol' has been beaten to death by Hollywood since 1908. Seriously, we've been regurgitating this classic novel with reimaginings for over 114 years and this is one…
