Read on for reviews of both new films!
Review Round-up: 'A Man Called Otto,' 'The Old Way,' 'The Pale Blue Eye' and 'EO'
Here's a "round-up" of some recent movies I've seen, including a repeat review of "The Pale Blue Eye," which is now available to stream on Netflix.
I missed seeing the #2 movie in the country this past week, the surprise hit, "M3GAN," (which just brought in over 30 million on its opening weekend). Of course, the #1 film in the world is still "Avatar: The Way of Water" (click for my full review) of that film).
But these other movies are now in release as well:
Review Round-Up: 'Strange World,' 'Bardo,' 'Spirited,' 'A Christmas Story Christmas,' 'She Said'
There have been lots of movies in recent weeks (not complaining!), both theatrical and on streaming, so here is a run-down of several of the movies I've managed to catch up with, along with my thoughts on each film.
I have FULL reviews of the following films:
"The Fabelmans" - Full Review
"Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery" - Full Review
"Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio" - Full Review

Review Round-up: 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,' 'Aftersun' and Netflix's 'My Father's Dragon'
Undoubtedly, the biggest release of the week is the 30th Marvel Cinematic Universe film (and the final film of the MCU's "Phase Four"), "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever."

"Black Panther: Wakanda Forever."
However there are a few other, smaller releases this week, both in theaters and on streaming. Read on for reviews of those films!
It's been a rough stretch of busyness and preoccupation...yes, I've still been watching a lot of movies, but life just hasn't quite allowed me the time enough to properly write full reviews of some of the recent theatrical and streaming releases.
So instead of not posting anything, here are some quick blurb reviews of the movies I've seen in new release over the past few weekends, starting off with one of my favorite, funniest films of the year:
