6 Thoughts on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Review)

Who could have imagined that Doctor Strange would eventually be the elder statesman of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? His first film was really good, but hardly star-making material. But then he’s been a major player in Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: No Way Home. So here comes his official sequel, ready to make big bank as another Marvel hit!

Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great.

I really enjoyed this film, especially by the end. I’ll admit to being a bit hazy in the first half. But the madness and the creativity of the second half really won me over and I had a great time overall. Granted, I’m a sucker for all these Marvel projects. I fully admit that and have no shame in it. It’ll be a cold day in the world when I dislike a Marvel movie or TV show. Thankfully, that day has not yet arrived!

Join me after the jump for my full thoughts on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the movie! And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments below!

Avatar: The Way of Water is So Real There’s an Actual Trailer

One of the biggest reveals from the new Doctor Strange movie was the trailer for the first sequel to Avatar. I’m as shocked as anyone that this movie is actually coming out. I’ve always found it rather funny that Avatar was the highest grossing movie of all time for a long time, yet it left next to no cultural footprint. And then director James Cameron kept promising half a dozen sequels, adding to the joke.

But here’s our first look at Avatar: The Way of Water.

So I guess all the big blue alien people are gonna go swimming this time around? They spent a lot of the first movie flying. So why not spend some movie swimming? And they’ll do it in 3D! And then we’ll all have to live with a return of crappy 3D movies. Doctor Strange 2 had a 3D showing in my theater this past weekend. What’s up with that?!

Avatar: The Way of Water comes out on Dec. 16.

A Weird Al Biopic is Coming!

So the channel/thing that is Roku is making a biopic for Weird Al Yankovic, the greatest musician of all time. And it’s going to star Daniel Radcliffe as Weird Al, which might be the most inspired casting of all time. This whole thing just looks great!

This looks funny, subversive, weird and just plain darn good. I don’t know what Roku is, but I guess I’m going to have to get it by the time Weird comes out later this year.

All the Boba Fetts, Animated

Our old pal Tell It Animated is back with a fun look at all the cool Boba Fett armors. I’m a big Boba Fett fan, because he’s cool as hell, and that’s largely because his look is so damn good. So this is right up my alley. Even if The Book of Boba Fett wasn’t so great.

As always, this was just plain fun. I hope this dude is super successful making these animations. They’re always a treat when they come along, and I’m happy to share them. Especially since they tend to pop up over the weekend and they make for good Monday morning happiness.

And, as always, should he ever read these posts, I recommend Robin for a future episode!

Jurassic World: Dominion is Just Doing It

I haven’t been the biggest fan of the Jurassic World series. I dunno. They’re just nothing special, as far as I’m concerned. But at least it looks like they’re going for broke in the threequel. And I’m as much of a sucker for nostalgic cameos as the next idiot.

It looks fine to me. Lots of dinosaurs. All the familiar actors. Plenty of action. I don’t even really remember what exactly I haven’t cared for in the earlier Jurassic World movies. They’re just not…well put together? I dunno. But this looks fine.

Jurassic World: Dominion comes out on June 10.
