Men (2022) is Rated R for swears, suicide, full male nudity, people getting punched, people getting stabbed, people giving birth, and bird euthanasia.
Firestarter (2022) is Rated R for bleeding eyes, people getting punched, people getting burned, people getting shot, and 94 minutes of your life you won’t get back.
If you’re looking for a romantic comedy about a working class guy dating someone far above his status, choose to spend time with ABC’s canceled series The Baker and the Beauty>/em>. While it only lasted one season, it offers a much higher production value, stronger acting, and a far more enjoyable storyline than The Valet.
Senior Year is proof that there is too many outlets for movies to be streamed and not enough good content to go around. Save your time and catch one of the many other high school films that do it better like Clueless or Mean Girls.
Top Gun: Maverick has everything you could ever want in a movie: heart, humor, hope, action, romance, nostalgia, and an intensity rarely felt in films today.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022) is rated PG-13 for swears, an inter-dimensional eye gouge, corpses, reanimated corpses, broken necks, people cut in half, lots of immolations, and a metal stake through the heart.
For fans of Spring Awakening, HBO’s documentary is a must-see. For those that haven’t, it provides an opportunity to see the power of theatre and how it can change the world for good.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022) is rated R for swears, a kidnapping, people getting punched in the face, people getting shot, wild car crashes, lots of driving where you really just want people to watch the dang road, and a Nick on Nicky kiss I’m probably going to need therapy for.
The Northman (2022) is rated R for a lot. People are murdered, let’s put it simply, wars and fighting are to the death, throats are cut, and bodies dismembered to send a message. This is a movie about Vikings, not Smurfs. Please measure your tolerance for violence before seeing this film.
The Bad Guys (2022) is rated PG for cartoon capers like car chases over blown-out bridges, down steep stairs, and through the iconic LA Basin, visual noxious farts (I believe coded as “rude humor”), an over-zealous cop, and hordes and hordes of mind-controlled rodents.
The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is the most fun you’re going to have in a darkened room full of complete strangers this year. Self-aware, adorable, and so so funny. I can’t think of a better afternoon than joining your fellow moviegoers in this exclamation point of pure, uncut Nicolas Cage.
