RAPID REVIEW: “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” (Plus a Parent Review)

Doctor Stephen Strange has his hands full in this installment, straightening out the multiverse-mess he caused in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Strange also has to protect a multiverse-jumping new character, America Chavez (played by Xochitl Gomez) from an evil Scarlett Witch, all while delivering one-liners and his version of a Blue Steel side-eye. Toss that with constantly shifting realities and mind-blowing special effects and well…it’s a LOT.

Rapid Review: “The Northman”

The Northman stars Alexander Skarsgård as Amleth, a Viking who hopes to avenge the murder of his father, the King (Ethan Hawke). He also plans to save his mother (Nicole Kidman), who has been forced to marry the murderer, also the King’s brother. Along the way Amleth meets a beautiful witch (Anya Taylor-Joy), who offers him a brighter and less-deadly path in life. It’s the same Scandinavian legend that inspired Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and it could’ve seemd too familiar in another director’s hands.  Fortunately, Robert Eggers is steering this ship so The Northman is consistently fresh, even during its grimiest, blood-bath battles (of which there are many).

JSS: April Movies to Get PSYCHED About

Rapid Review: “Everything Everywhere All at Once”

A24

It was during a rare quiet moment in the film Everything Everywhere All at Once when a woman behind me said, “This movie is so stupid.”

She must have felt strongly about it because she said it again a half-hour later.

“Seriously…this movie is so stupid.”

She’s not entirely wrong either.

There are moments of blistering stupidity in Everything Everywhere All at Once, but they are sandwiched between broad, existential comments on love, parenting, and the way we view our own precious lives. It’s how this film manages to be absurd, grotesque, and brilliant all at the same time.
