Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the latest MCU film featuring the multiverse. Sam Raimi directs, and his fingerprints are on a lot of shots and elements. The movie is entertaining but the characters are not terribly compelling. It’s a fine comic book movie, but nothing so revelationary. It’s worth checking out if you enjoy other MCU films.

The Bob’s Burgers Movie is an animated movie based off the popular television show. If you enjoy the show you’ll enjoy the movie. The plot is a bit predictable but the characters and their arcs make up for it. It doesn’t go for shock or melodrama and the musical numbers feel natural. It won’t be winning awards but it is a fine film that any fan of the show will appreciate.

The Addams Family 2 is another animated Addams adventure. The humor is still fine but the story is fairly dull. It’s mediocre for the most part with a plot centered around Wednesday. The movie makes her character fairly horrible. It’s not the worst but it is forgettable. Catch it on a streaming service if you are sick of the standard family movies.

The Batman is yet another reboot of the Batman franchise. The tone is gritty and it feels like an amalgamation between Seven and the Dark Knight. With a run-time of about 3 hours the movie has a flaw that can’t be overlooked in a Batman movie, it’s BORING. The characters are dull and the story itself is a slog. It’s not horrible but also it isn’t worth the time investment.

No Time To Die is a James Bond movie that wraps up Daniel Craigs run as the titular secret agent. The action is good and the acting solid. The movie has a long run time that can feel exhausting. Still, it is a solid entry to the franchise. Check it out if you are a James Bond fan.

Scream (2022) is a horror movie that attempts to revitalize a franchise that hasn’t been relevant for a decade. It is not the worst sequel, but it is still, not that clever or interesting. The characters are still stock and dull. The twists are fairly obvious and the script is right out if the CW. People seem to like this movie. I think it’s better than a lot of the other Scream movies, with the exception being the first film. Check it out if you enjoy the other Scream movies.

Candyman (2021) is a sequel reboot of a really great nineties horror movie of the same name. The cinematography is very cool and stylized. The kills are brutal and clever, with the killer only appearing in reflections. The story is good until the end when the tone shifts to shlock. It is disappointing that a movie with the potential it held in the first two thirds could take such a turn. Characters make revelations that come out of nowhere. Check it out if you like a movie with good visuals but with some flaws.
