Everything Everywhere All At Once

I had heard some buzz for this movie and it became a rare movie that I would see in a movie theater. A proprietor of a laundromat gets sucked into a conflict that spans the multiverse. It is pretty much a movie that defies explanation. The movie stars Michelle Yeoh who does an excellent job balancing comedy, tragedy, and action. Ke Huy Quan had been away from acting for almost twenty years (he was in a movie in 2021) and he is amazing as the emotional core of the movie. Stephanie Hsu is mind-blowing as the troubled daughter. Jamie Lee Curtis and James Hong do so much good work in more minor roles. The movie was amazing. It has a million blind-and-you’ll-miss-it references and jokes and yet it also made me cry. I recommend this movie.

Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness

I was totally hyped for this movie for many reasons. First, I liked the first Dr. Strange and enjoyed his comic books. Second, the movie was getting heralded as Sam Raimi’s return to horror. Three, it included some of my favorite MCU characters and had a lot of potential for fun cameos. I was not disappointed. Basically, Stephen Strange must protect a young girl with amazing powers while unraveling a mystic mystery. Benedict Cumberbatch is back as Dr. Strange and he does even better with the role balancing comedy with incredible drama. Benedict Wong returns and is just as funny as usual. I am not spoiling anything by saying that Elizabeth returns and she continues to show such an emotional journey of Wanda Maximoff. Rachel MacAdams is given more to do in this one. Xochitl Gomez is a relative newcomer but she is definitely going places as she is such a great actress. I can definitely see why Raimi directed this one and he has come a long way since Evil Dead. I recommend this movie.

The One

I love supernatural martial arts movies and this is definitely an exemplary movie in that category. It had the perfect balance of humor, action, and a little bit of drama. Also, a ton of early 2000s Nu Metal. The story here is that a man is murdering other versions of himself throughout the multiverse to absorb their power. There is one left to kill but they are now equal in power. Jet Li plays the hero and villain and does a great job at distinguishing the two roles. Jason Statham plays a multiversal cop who is trying to stop everything from going down. Carla Cugino plays the clever wife of the protagonist who gets mixed up in everything. They did a really good job playing with what a multiverse would look like. The differences are often played for laughs, though. I recommend this movie.

Jackie Brown

I had seen a little bit of this movie as a kid but I cannot remember how much because my parents shut it off and we probably returned it to Blockbuster Video. Now I can finally watch it on my own. It was well worth the wait. In this, a flight attendant finds herself stuck between a criminal and law enforcement and must concoct a plan to get out of trouble. Pam Grier is so good in the titular role. She is so clever, vulnerable, and funny. I now want to go back and watch some of her blaxploitation films. Samuel L. Jackson is on top of his game as a conniving criminal “mastermind”. Robert Forster often steals the show as a no-nonsense bail bondsman. Robert Deniro, Bridget Fonda, and Michael Keaton have memorable minor roles. The movie is full of twists and turns and excellent dialogue. It is not gory but it can be intense. I recommend this movie.

The Vault

I watched this movie on a whim and was thankful that I did. This movie is about a crew of divers who recruit a genius engineering student to get back a treasure that was taken from them. The movie stars Freddie Highmore in a role where he gets to use his actual accent. He is the genius engineering student and he does a good job as a fish out of water who is great at adapting. Astrid Bergès-Frisbey plays the female lead, a clever and funny con artist. Liam Cunningham is great as the almost fatherly leader of the group. Sam Riley plays a snarky spy-type character who constantly clashes with Highmore. The movie’s pace felt slow in the beginning as I warmed to the ensemble of characters but it really started picking up in the second half. The heist scenes were appropriately exciting and tense and well worth the wait. I recommend this movie.

Army of Thieves
These were the wacky hijinks that I was looking for. This is the story of how a bank teller becomes a criminal safecracker. This movie really rests on the shoulders of Matthias Schweighöfer who plays the quirky lead character. He also directs the movie. He is an instantly likable and absurd character. Nathalie Emmanuel is great as the jewel thief with an eye toward becoming a legend as well as getting rich. The movie follows the progress of three heists. It plays a lot with the traditional heist movie tropes while still keeping things feeling fresh. I recommend this movie and I will be checking out the sequel Army of the Dead.

The Alchemist

This one feels a bit like a fairytale. It is light and dreamy and meandering. A woman is drawn into the woods where she meets a man who claims that she looks exactly like his wife who died a century ago. Lucinda Dooling plays the lead and she is amusingly brassy and abrasive while also being vulnerable. John Sanderford plays her put upon sidekick of sorts and the only voice of reason. Robert Ginty plays the titular character and does a good job as a tormented and cursed man. The special effects are delightfully schlocky and the pacing is weird but it was still a fun “bad” movie. I recommend it.

Parasite (1982)

Boy, this movie is hard to find online. Gee, I wonder why? I really wanted to see this movie because it has the great Stan Winston doing special effects on the cheap. The titular parasite is actually very creepy-looking and there are some really good effects from it. The movie actually felt like it might have inspired the Bethesda Fallout games. A man tries to find a cure for a deadly parasite that he helped create to keep it from the government in a post-apocalyptic world. Robert Claudini is an unlikely leading man but does a good job as a stone-faced and reticent scientist. Demi Moore plays the sweet-faced young lemon farmer in her very first movie role. The movie is a bit of a rambling mess but some good action scenes and great horror effects make up for it. I recommend this movie.

Netherworld

A strange movie with some very interesting horror elements. Transformation is a heavily used horror trope in both Empire and Full Moon movies. A young man travels to the south where he has inherited an estate from the father he never knew. Once there, he stumbles into a world of dark magic mixed with lust involving a demonic brothel. There are hints of sex but nothing too graphic. The movie dwells more on the horror aspects. Unlike other movies set in Louisiana, it keeps its magic vague and fictional instead of leaning on the usual mix of voodoo or santeria. This is great because most of the cast is white so there’s no cultural appropriation. Michael Bendetti plays the perpetually clueless yet curious protagonist. Denise Gentile plays the seductive and otherworldly beautiful witch/demon/whatever. I recommend this odd movie.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

I have been a fan of Spider-Man since I was a tiny tot. It was one of many comic books that I spent my allowance on and walked several miles to get. I have liked each adaptation of Spider-Man for different reasons and in different ways. This movie was the culmination of two decades of Spider-Man movies. It is the eighth movie but the third incarnation. MCU Spidey has been my favorite because he felt the closest to what I read back in the day. However, I really have appreciated the whole ride. Even the lowest points were a lot of fun. This movie was such a love letter to all of that while continuing the MCU story. Tom Holland really shouldered the movie but had a lot of help from Zendaya as usual. The return of Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei, Thomas Hayden Church, Jamie Foxx, Rhys Ifans, Jon Favreau, and the underrated Jacob Batalon really made for a great ensemble. I recommend this movie.

Moon Knight

I never read much Moon Knight growing up but I did like his design. In some ways, he reminded me of DC Comics’ Azrael. The strength of this series relies on Oscar Isaacs. Playing three different characters in one piece is difficult but he really pulls it off. The visuals are absolutely stunning, full of twisty mystery and strange dream logic. Oscar Isaac pulls off all three characters while being endearing and charming in different ways. Ethan Hawke plays a perfect level-headed creepy villain. May Calamawy plays a badass female lead. I am really interested to see where this one goes because I have no idea. I recommend this series.

The Batman

DC Movies are so much better now that they have largely abandoned the larger extended universe. As the so-called Snyder-verse closes down, the new movies that have popped up have been way more creative. Batman is one of my favorite characters and I was interested in what this new version would be. The movie encountered so many setbacks during production that I had all but written it off. However, I couldn’t have been more wrong. The extra time definitely let them develop the movie more. The movie feels like an interesting combo of film noir and action-heavy superhero movies. Robert Pattinson is such a good Batman. He realy gets what makes the character tick and does so much with the role. The visuals were so pretty even though they were dark and shadowy, a reminder that dark doesn’t have to mean boring. It was an interesting take on familiar concepts that felt innovative but also comfortable. Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Zoe Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright, and John Turturro made up a great cast. They made some casting decisions that I would not have predicted but it all worked. The movie is a bit long at 3 and a half hours but I never felt like it was dragging. I recommend this movie.

Red Notice

I am a huge fan of both Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds so the prospect of a movie with them playing off of each other was very appealing. This movie is pretty slick with really good pacing. The weight of the movie rests on the patter between the Rock and Reynolds Connection. They are so good at sniping at each other. In between that are some really fun action sequences and fights that definitely elevated the movie. Gal Godot is at her best here. I think she is more well-suited to being the vaguely foreign villain. The three also play off each other well. The sleeper hit here was Ritu Arya who was great as the hard-nosed yet also snarky cop. What I am saying is that there was a lot of snark in this movie. I recommend it.

Killjoys

I stumbled upon this show when searching for information on one of my favorite horror franchises. This is a futuristic story of space bounty hunters called Killjoys. Actually, they are more accurately defined as acquisition experts as they usually capture their targets alive and are also sent to retrieve stolen goods. It feels like a less problematic Firefly. It is always good to see Aaron Ashmore again. He and his brother are charmingly snarky. The star of the show is Hannah John-Kamen who is great as the expert assassin who apparently does not want to kill. Rounding out the main cast is Luke MacFarlane who is the muscle head himbo. The episodes so far have been fast-paced with plenty of action and comedy. I am interested to see where it goes. I recommend it.

It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

This is why I love my third choice. It sometimes pushes me into making choices that expose me to something I have been putting off or would not have picked otherwise. This movie is a gem of a movie. It is a crazy comedy/action movie with one of the greatest casts in comedy. It would take too long to list them all but the standouts for me were Ethel Merman, Phil Silvers, Mickey Rooney, Buddy Hackett, Jonathan Winters, Sid Caesar, Edie Adams, and Peter Falk. The movie is full of plenty of funny dialogue but even more slapstick and physical comedy. At the time of filming, there were 100 stuntmen working in the US and this movie employed eighty of them. It never lets up its pace for a full 3 and a half hours. The original theatrical run had an intermission. It is absolutely a movie that you do not have to watch in one sitting as it is chopped up into a lot of different comedy teams. I recommend this movie.

Escape Room

I have always really liked the concept of an escape room along with the lore but I never wanted to try one in real life. Too much anxiety. Having a movie full of deadly escape rooms is such a vicarious thrill. The movie was very intricate and every moment was tense. The lore was also really interesting and I could almost believe in these curated escape rooms. The power of the movie rests on two things: 1) The intricate and beautiful puzzles and 2) the cast’s chemistry. Taylor Russell, Logan Miller, Deborah Ann Woll, Tyler Labine, Nik Dodani, and Jay Ellis are all so good together. It was so fascinating to watch them work off of each other. The movie is put together so well that it left me very satisfied. I recommend this movie.

The Protégé

Like the above, this movie has been on my radar for a little bit so I decided to go for it. An assassin for hire must dive headfirst into mystery and violence to avenge her mentor. The strength of the movie rests squarely on Maggie Q’s shoulders. She is so good in this role of the reticent yet snarky and determined. She was great. Samuel L. Jackson was as charming as ever as the mentor. I was really surprised by the continuing evolution and resurgence of Michael Keaton. He was such a good morally gray character who added so much to the movie. The movie would have been much poorer without him. It was a surprisingly unique movie. I recommend it.

The Scary House

This has been floating around on my Watchlist since it came out based solely on the font of the poster and the short blurb. This story is about a family who moves out of the city to a more rural town where they find that their house may be haunted. It feels a little bit like Stranger Things, What Lies Beneath, and Broadchurch thrown into an Austrian blender. It is a German-language film with a bit of Slovenian tossed in. It is primarily a murder mystery with supernatural elements. There is a lot of quirky sitcom comedy but also f-bombs so I do not know who this was supposed to be for. It starts slow and I was going to tap out but I stuck with it and it got way more interesting. Still, I am not sure I would recommend it.

Kate

This is the story of an assassin who is poisoned and seeks revenge before she loses her life. This is the kind of movie that feels good like Run Lola Run, Kill Bill, Gunpowder Milkshake, and more. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been an actress I’ve liked but she jumped way up on my list after Birds of Prey. She is great as the hardened assassin who starts growing a heart. Woody Harrelson plays a charming handler. Miku Martineau is a cool little girl who gets caught up in everything. Miyavi, Tadanobu Asano, and Jun Kunimura all play Yakuza and they are each really good at what they do. The movie was unexpectedly deep and I really loved the story of a lone woman coming to terms with her past. I recommend this movie.

Those Who Wish Me Dead

This movie is about a troubled smokejumper who must contend with criminals and a forest fire while trying to save a young boy. The movie was a great journey from start to finish. Part of that was Angelina Jolie being her most charismatic possibly in her whole career. She was so compelling to watch from start to finish. Her chemistry with Finn Little (the boy) is great because of her but also because Little is a good actor himself. It is always good to see Jon Bernthal who plays a tough sheriff’s deputy with a heart of gold. Medina Senghore plays a tough-as-nails pregnant woman. Nicholas Hoult and Aidan Gillen play great ruthless villains. The effects of the fire are so good and I was on the edge of my seat for much of the movie. I recommend this movie.

Jolt

I was not expecting this movie to be as good as it was but there we go. A woman with rage issues goes on a rampage to get revenge for her murdered boyfriend. The movie stars Kate Beckinsale in probably her best role to date. She is just so funny and charming in the role. This is definitely an action-comedy. Stanley Tucci is great as usual as her psychiatrist. Jai Courtney plays her affable new boyfriend. Laverne Cox and Bobby Carnavale play the hapless police detectives chasing after her. The rest are helpless mooks for great fight scenes. The movie was so fun to watch that it definitely lifted my spirits. I recommend this movie.

The Cuphead Show

I talked about the video game on Monday for a reason. I knew that I was going to watch the show this week. This show came right out of left field for me but in hindsight, it makes a lot of sense. The game was inspired by old-school cartoons so now they are actually making a cartoon. Also, they made a lot of animation assets when they were making the game so reworking them for a show makes sense. The animation from the game obviously returns and it is a throwback but also cleaner. Tru Valentino and Frank Todaro have great chemistry as the goofy voices of Cuphead and Mugman. I really love Luke Millington-Drake as The Devil, a smarmy yet wacky personality. Joe Hanna has perfect comic timing as Elder Kettle. The show is a lot of fun and the episodes are only ten minutes long at the most. I recommend this show.

Arcane

I never played League of Legends before mostly because the player base is beyond toxic but what little I have seen was interesting. There are so many fun and interesting characters with great designs. This show attempts to give origins to several of the playable characters. The show is compelling right off the bat. The central story is a tale of two sisters who are thieves in the slums and the very different trajectories their lives take. I am only two episodes in so I will speak to that. Hailee Steinfeld (who is everywhere lately) is great as the older sister, burdened with purpose and a hard life. Mia Sinclair Jenness is also great as the younger sister, incredibly intelligent but feeling less than. There are plenty of other interesting characters swirling around as the intrigue levels rise. I recommend this show.

Mega Man: Fully Powered

I stumbled upon all of the episodes of this show on YouTube. I have played a lot of Mega Man games and I fell in love with the aesthetic a long time ago. The idea of having all these elemental villains that the hero can copy powers from is a lot of fun. I was a big fan of the 1994 show. The show has some interesting animation style which is colorful and sharp. The designs of the robots are reminiscent of the game but with a unique flair. The show is definitely aimed toward the younger crowd but it has some interesting things to say. For example, when Mega Man copies abilities, he can also copy their emotional states and personalities. Each episode comes with a lesson which I approve of. The show is created by Man of Action who has created or worked on so many successful cartoons. I do not recommend this show unless you are a huge Mega Man fan.

The King’s Man

I have loved this franchise since the first movie dropped as it is a breath of fresh air with a mix of serious drama and wacky shenanigans. A very real alternative to both James Bond and Mission Impossible, the franchise has not dropped the ball yet. This movie is a prequel detailing how the Kingsman Agency came to be created. The story takes place during World War I and incorporates actual real political and historical figures. Ralph Fiennes is excellent as a British duke who moves behind the scenes to help. Djimon Hounsou is so good as the stoic warrior. Gemma Arterton is fun as the sassy yet militant woman. Harris Dickinson is good as the lantern-jawed good boy. Rhys Ifans is absolutely insane as Grigori Rasputin. There are also great performances by Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Valerie Pachner, Daniel Bruhl, and so many more. It is a crazy and fun romp from start to finish. I recommend this movie.

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard

The first movie was definitely a surprisingly funny and exciting movie partly because the cast is so good. The pairing of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson returns in this one. Reynolds is his usual quippy and delightful self. Jackson is just as rude and bombastic as usual. We also get the addition of Salma Hayek who plays a foul-mouthed psychopath. The chemistry and dialogue between the three are so good. They are a laugh riot together. Throw in Antonio Banderas, Frank Grillo, Morgan Freeman, and more and you have a great cast. The action scenes are great too with both drama and comedy mixed in. The movie hit just right. I recommend this movie.

Assassination Nation

I have had this buried in my list for quite a while and now seemed like a good time to give it a chance. The movie is beautifully shot with an interesting production design vis a vis the color choices. The movie stars Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Abra, and Hari Nef as a group of young girls caught up in violent chaos in suburbia. There are also appearances from Joel McHale, Bill Skarsgard, Bella Thorne, Anika Noni Rose, Colman Domingo, and more. This is a wild movie and not for the faint of heart as its list of trigger warnings is long (and literally appears at the beginning of the movie). It is violent and sexual but it also has some important messages. Seriously, this is a deeply uncomfortable movie (and that’s coming from an avid horror fan) but in the end, I am glad I watched it. I recommend this movie.

Rosewood

I came to the opinion while watching Our Kind of People that I really like Morris Chestnut but I am not a fan of a lot of his career. When I found out that he was on a procedural, I definitely wanted to check it out. Chestnut plays a private pathologist with a state-of-the-art laboratory run as a family business. He works closely with the Miami Police Department but is independent of them. Chestnut is electric in the role of an eternally optimistic yet troubled doctor who I cannot help but like. His sister, played by Gabrielle Dennis, works in the lab and she is always testing her older brother professionally and personally. Anna Konkle plays the sister’s girlfriend and is an accomplished forensics expert herself. Jaina Lee Ortiz plays a tough detective who often gets paired with Rosewood. She is a mix of Miami and New York City attitudes. The show has a really good feel to it and the plot is just as interesting as the cool tech they use to solve crimes. I recommend this show.

Body of Proof

This show is about a former neurosurgeon who loses her career after going through a car accident. She reboots her career as a medical examiner. She is abrasive and hyper-focused on her job and being right but has a troubled personal life. Dana Delany is really great in the role since she is easy to dislike early on but then she hits you with a moment where you feel for her character. Nicholas Bishop plays her partner, a medicolegal investigator (kind of like a hospital cop) who is a former cop. Jeri Ryan plays her tough but fair boss who has to be concerned with budgets, reputation, and helping people. She is backed up by two loveable character actors in Windell Middlebrooks and Geoffrey Arend. The cops are pretty great too in that they cannot really rein in the medical examiners. I recommend this show.

Forever

Dr. Henry Morgan has a problem. He is immortal in that every time he dies, he reappears in a body of water. His immortality has granted him a lot of experience which he uses as a medical examiner in New York City. He studies death to find a way to finally die himself but also to help people in the meantime. Ioan Gruffudd is very charming in the role, a sort of immortal Sherlock Holmes (but way more affable). Alana de la Garza plays the police detective who becomes entangled with Morgan. She is inquisitive and clever in her own right and not just a passenger along for the ride. Judd Hirsch plays an older man who is the only one who knows Henry’s secret and he is just as loveable as ever. I recommend this show.
