67 36% Spies in Disguise (2019) - Rated 30 Dec 2023
"An excellent voice cast underscores a rather imaginative children's sci-fi/spy story that surprisingly didn't become infuriatingly goofy and pandering. There's also a bit of a message here that a few kids and most adults need to hear."
55 15% The Super Mario Bros. Movie (2023) - Rated 09 Dec 2023
"It seemed to be less of a story than a collection of events that reference Mario video games. There's a sequence based on Mario Kart. Is that cool? Mario wins a fight because a reference to Super Mario 3D World exists. Is that cool? The whole movie is that over and over again, "progressing" its story with video game references. If you don't care about the references you can't care about this movie. Likely, you shouldn't care about the movie even if you do get the references."
87 73% Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (2023) - Rated 03 Jun 2023
"The plot and character melt together and are propelled by the sci-fi element in a great way. (I think I'm a fan of Lord and Miller.) The callbacks and the minor retcon of the last movie feel natural and like they belong in the story. And those cameos!"
74 45% Sisu (2023) - Rated 30 May 2023
"Save one or two bits of ridiculousness, it's a riotous good time. If you don't want to think much and you think you might enjoy watching an action hero bathe in Nazi blood while oozing style and machismo, you can't do better than this."
85 69% John Wick: Chapter 4 (2023) - Rated 11 May 2023
"It's the worst of the series, but I don't think that it's a failure. It's still better action than the competition and manages to catch fire (somewhat literally) during the last act. Worth a watch if only because Clancy Brown and Donnie Yen are incapable of letting anyone down."
86 71% Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves (2023) - Rated 11 May 2023
"Better usage of the source material than one might think. Some D&D references are made (one that was really ... meta), but the story doesn't depend on that. Instead, only one magical item is very important and gets milked that for all it's worth. I liked the villain's evil plan and how it's revealed. However, it's not until the last act that the adventure gets adventurous. The first two acts aren't bad but it's the ending bringing it all together that makes it worth watching."
76 49% Nobody (2021) - Rated 11 May 2023
"I admired is the script's repeated creation of cliched expectations only to disconfirm them, instead of piling up cliched plot twists. And yeah, the action's good too."
96 96% Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022) - Rated 26 Mar 2023
64 30% Lightyear (2022) - Rated 09 Oct 2022
"The same sex peck on the cheek is not a real issue, the writers having a entire pack of characters bumble their way through the story is. The rest of the package is acceptable, but the plot progression could stand to be a little less by the numbers."
50 11% Paddington (2015) - Rated 09 Oct 2022
"The main character is terribly naïve but likeable, and his predicament is somewhat unbelievable but still relatably presented. However, I was repeatedly irritated by the characters bumbling being used as an important plot device, it's such a lazy crutch."
