The 28th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is directed by Sam Raimi and sees Doctor Strange teaming up with the mysterious America Chavez from his dreams who can travel across multiverses, in order to battle multiple threats, including other-universe versions of himself, which threaten to wipe out millions across the multiverse. Superb and exceptional visual effects and very good performances from the main cast. Raimi's horror elements are introduced in this film and it works very well, making it one of the darkest and most violent movies in the MCU. Elizabeth Olsen's performance as a fully formed Scarlet Witch is the highlight of the movie and it is just delightful, it will keep the viewers at the edge of their seats. Danny Elfman also came up with an amazing score! Also, lots of fan service moments!!
A musical romantic drama directed by Joe Wright and based on the 2018 stage musical, in which wordsmith Cyrano de Bergerac, too self-conscious to court his devoted friend Roxanne himself, helps a young man nab her heart through love letters. It is very well acted and Peter Dinklage shows off his singing skills. It has some incredible shots, astounding sets and great costume design. And the songs composed by Aaron and Bryce Dessner are good, but they are not as catchy and memorable compared to other musicals. It is still an enjoyable and beautiful movie.
This 2018 coming-of-age comedy-drama film written and directed by Bo Burnham follows Kayla, an introverted middle school teenager who struggles with anxiety but strives to gain social acceptance from her peers during their final week of eighth grade. Elsie Fisher's performance is astounding and captivating and makes the whole story very genuine and touching and a vivid and heartbreaking reminder of how awkward growing up can be. It explores themes rarely depicted on screen, and the movie is realistic in that aspect with some dark moments, but is overall a very sweet and relatable drama.
The 1964 continuation of the Ian Fleming adapted novels now follows the MI6 agent investigating gold smuggling by gold magnate Auric Goldfinger and eventually uncovering his sinister plans to contaminate the United States Bullion Depository at Fort Knox. Not for nothing is it one of the most iconic Bond films of all time with the introduction of some of the best tech gadgets and some of the funniest and most sarcastic lines. A phenomenal spy thriller with action-packed scenes and an incredible soundtrack that includes Dame Shirley Bassey's fantastic opening song which started the tradition of having a title song for every Bond film. The villain is just remarkable and unforgettable, and Sean Connery is just unique in his career-defining role.
This sixth installment of the Ice Age franchise is sadly the outcome of a dead franchise that has reached rock bottom. It follows the two opossum brothers Crash and Eddie and their adventure to becoming independent possums alongside the titular character Buck Wild while they face the dinosaurs who inhabit the Lost World. With a dreadful-looking animation that may seem outdated and clumsy, new voice actors who just ruined the entire thing, an awful dumb plot and the notable absence of our favourite Scrat, this movie is just trash. I believe it's just time to let the franchise die for good.
