  • Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    ★★★★★

    The Sonic the hedgehog movies seem to follow a similar pattern to the games: the first one was good but the second one blew it out of the water, just like how the game Sonic the hedgehog 2 did in the early 90’s.

  • Spider-Man: No Way Home

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★

    Easily the MCU’s current best film. Those that bailed on the MCU post-Endgame missed out on a real gem here.

  • Death on the Nile

    ★★★

    This was fine. It was an improvement over Murder on the Orient Express. Even if my friend and I correctly figured out the mystery halfway through the film.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    ★★★★★

    This movie perfectly captures what it would be like if you took the best of what makes the Burton Batman movies great and what made the Nolan trilogy great, put that in a blender, and added a mystery/detective thriller aspect. This movie even made the Riddler, notably one of the more ridiculous of Batman’s “big bads” intimidating. Gotta give it props for that. 

    This might just be the best live action Batman yet.

  • Morbius

    Morbius

    ½

    This is almost like a throwback to an earlier era of comic book movies, y’know that era where they sucked? The villain made no sense and came out of nowhere, the CGI looked like a PS2 game, and Jared Leto proved that he can be the worst in both DC and Marvel. Honestly, that’s kind of impressive if you think about it. 

    But yeah this is bad.
