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.

See “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” EARLY & FOR FREE

It’s been six years since the first Doctor Strange movie, thanks to Covid and a change in directors (Sam Raimi took over when Scott Derrickson left the film). Now we’re hearing about some last minute reshoots at Marvel‘s request, so it’s hard to know WHAT to expect from this trip into the multiverse. All the more reason to see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness EARLY and FOR FREE. Even better, I have passes to free screenings all over Texas!

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “The Current War: Director’s Cut” EARLY & FOR FREE

This is odd. Here’s a movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland and Nicholas Hoult but it ISN’T a superhero flick. The Current War: Director’s Cut even has Michael Shannon but instead of playing Superman‘s nemesis, this time he plays George Westinghouse. They all come together in The Current War: Director’s Cut, which depicts the race between Westinghouse and Thomas Edison (Cumberbatch) to see who’s vision would power the modern world.
Are you thinking, “Wait a minute? Wasn’t this movie released a few years ago?”
Well, there’s a whole story behind that (which you can read HERE) but director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon won the rights to re-shoot his picture after Harvey Weinstein effectively ruined it. It’s an opportunity rarely given to directors and best of all, I have passes to Free Screenings all over Texas! Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: Life’s too Hard to NOT See “Thor: Ragnarok”

I’ll talk about Thor: Ragnarok in a moment but first I’d like to address the big picture…
LIFE is hard.
If you need proof, just look around you. Everyone I know is going through something awful right now. I have friends who are fighting cancer, and friends who are caring for parents who are fighting cancer. I have friends who have lost their jobs, and friends who are trapped in jobs that they HATE. I have friends who worry desperately for their children, and who can’t turn the TV on at night because the bad news they see freaks them out even more.
In other words, everything seems to suck right now, for just about everyone.
Don’t we all deserve something GOOD? Don’t we deserve a moment to escape and feel light, or powerful, or maybe to just laugh our asses off?
Now, I’m ready to talk about Thor: Ragnarok. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Thor: Ragnorak” EARLY & FOR FREE

My daughters and I have been pumped about Thor: Ragnorak for AGES. You know what has us the most excited though? Not the fact that Mark Ruffalo shows up as The Hulk, or that Tom Hiddleston is back as Loki. Nor were we jazzed that Cate Blanchett plays Hela the Goddess of Death or that Benedict Cumberbatch makes an appearance as Dr. Strange. No, the thing that has us excitedly tittering over Thor: Ragnorak is the fact that Chris Hemsworth cut his hair. And it looks GOOD. Sorry, not my proudest moment but it’s true. If Hemsworth’s new ‘do isn’t enough to get you excited about Thor: Ragnorak as well, maybe you haven’t heard that it’s getting rave reviews, or that I’ve got passes to see it EARLY and FOR FREE.

MOMMY-MOVIE-REVIEW: Is “Doctor Strange” OK for Kids?

Marvel Studios is introducing a new hero to their big-screen universe this weekend. He’s Doctor Strange and if your kids are like mine, they’ve been talking about him for months and fully expect to see his movie. Is it kid friendly, though? Will Doctor Strange be safe for the whole family or will it load your youngsters up with interesting new swear-words to try at school?

I’m happy to say that Doctor Strange is actually pretty mild for a Marvel flick. Continue reading →
