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!Read the rest of this entry
The Super Bowl came and went last night and my hopes and dreams were crushed once again. I am a lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan, and they have never won a Super Bowl. They came within one minute of winning last night, and it was dashed. Such is life. Thankfully, I don’t care about football, and only really care about new movie and TV show trailers!
First up is a brand new, totally bonkers trailer for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness! Holy cow, this trailer is beyond crazy.
I don’t even want to begin to speculate what we’re going to see. There’s a ton of spoilers and leaks out there on the web, and I’m trying my best to avoid them. But just from that trailer around, this movie looks hella bonkers and I am 100% here for it! Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness comes to theaters on May 6.
Next up is a new, short spot for the Moon Knight TV show.
This still looks good. I’ve never been a big Moon Knight fan, so I’m not as hyped or pumped as other viewers. But I’m definitely going to watch to see what’s in store. The Moon Knight costume is slowly winning me over, step by step. Moon Knight arrives on TV on March 30.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is coming and I am hesitantly excited about this one.
I didn’t care for the first movie. It was more just generic live action cartoon cliche than it was a Sonic movie. But the sequel features both Tails and Knuckles. I have been a fan of Knuckles since I was a wee boy, and he appears to be incredibly awesome in this film. Like, it’s blowing my mind that this badass Knuckles the Echidna is showing up in a movie and everybody is excited. So we’ll see! Sonic the Hedgehog 2 arrives in theaters on April 8.
Then we’ve got Nope, the new horror film by Jordan Peele.
Looks freaky and scary, so it should be a good time. I guess it’s about an alien invasion? Nope stands for “Not of Planet Earth” maybe? Either way, should be a good time at the movies! Nope arrives on July 22.
As we all know, the first trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was the post-credits treat at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home. And it was neat! Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait long for the trailer to arrive on the internet for all our viewing pleasure.
I think it looks cool. About as cool and great as any Marvel trailer. The movie looks trippy, America Chavez is cool, and Baron Mordo looks awesome! Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange both look great. What else is there to say? Bring on more Marvel movies!
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives in theaters on May 6.
The first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home arrived this week and the internet is having a celebration! Not all of the rumors were confirmed in the trailer, but enough has been teased that everybody seems pretty happy. I’m very excited myself. And as with most upcoming superhero movies, I have a list of demands!
Anything can happen in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The multiverse has been broken open, Into the Spider-Verse was a huge success, a lot of actors are still around; this movie could have everything. The only way to know for sure is to see it when it comes out on Dec. 17. But until then, I’m going to speculate wildly about what exactly I hope to see in this new movie. Life is just fun that way.

Welcome to new comic book reviews! It’s a nice Saturday, with temperatures finally starting to break. And…yeah. It’s March! New comics including Mighty Morphin, X-Factor, Wonder Woman and more!
To shake things up a bit, I’m going to award Comic Book of the Week to Children of the Atom #1! As much as I enjoyed the new issue of Mighty Morphin, it’s time to diversify my favorites. Children of the Atom brought us something new and interesting.
Meanwhile, I recently found out that the movie theater in the next town over has reopened! It sounds like a very dangerous adventure, but it’s something I might risk to see Godzilla vs. Kong on the big screen in a couple weeks. Also, I’ve started playing Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla. It’s fine so far, but feels a lot rougher than previous games.
Comic Reviews: Children of the Atom #1, The Green Lantern: Season Two #12, Mighty Morphin #5, Strange Academy #9, Wonder Woman #770 and X-Factor #8.Read the rest of this entry
