I always did wonder what a two-to-one serpent and shark crossbreed might look like, too.

Coming to America 8.5/10

It was still awesome, the kids really liked it. I heard my eight year old in the bathroom clapping his hands and calling out "Wipers!"

Mentioned my love for Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin to the Wunderkind, and he looked unimpressed and said that kind of broad humour was no longer popular.

Evidently he has a blind spot.

Dr. Strange: 6/10

The trippy bits and the dark universe inoperable stage iv carcinosarcoma god were cool, but ultimately lost my buzz due to expository dialogue, uninspiring conflict and boring fights, and cumberbun's character/performance were just tiresome man

Yeah, Dr. Strange looks like Marvel's first real whiff at bat since Iron Man 2.

Man, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay haven't delivered anything I'd watch again since Step Brothers. Almost a decade!

It just looks like Inception with Cumbervag to me. Wasn't that impressed with the trailers.

Yeah I liked it better when it was called inception, but probably b/c id rather watch Leo Deecap than cumbersome. His eyes r like too small, rodential, plus he was a huge Dugan as a character

Really liked the ancient one, wish there was more of her. You know there were a lot of aspects I liked but they weren't explored as much as I'd like. And the shoe horned love story was as unrealistic as it was a snoozer

In fact I'm hereby downgrading to 5/10. I am firmly ambivalent about this flick

I liked the tone of the film, the whole marvel universe to me does this balancing act really well of stradling the cheesy, campy line without being totally ridiculous a la batman & robin.
I loved the multiverse stuff and the scene where the ancient one sends him through a bunch of dymensions was really awesome.

Also not getting the Cumberbatch hate. He's a fine actor and he's a fine actor

I haven't seen Dr. Strange, but I feel like the Marvel Studios films have the problem of being kinda cookie-cutter and safe, while the recent DC movies have the problem of mistaking having people look sad and serious and talking about how important everything is with profundity.

Isn't pretty much everybody saying that this movie is more or less a direct regurgitation of one of those Robert Downey Jr. movies, but with a run-of-the-mill snake in the lead role?

Isn't every Marvel movie more or less a direct regurgitation of that first Marvel movie, but with a different lead who has a different super power?

Isn't every movie ever made more or less a direct regurgitation of that first movie ever made, but with a different human relating to some other #firstworldproblems?

Dog Day Afternoon - 8/10

Has some major pacing and tonal issues, but really entertaining regardless. Classic Al Pacino is always a pleasure and Chris Sarandon as his gay lover in transition was icing on the cake.

Kingpin - 6/10

I remember watching this a lot on Comedy Central back when I was a teenager (it seemed throughout 1999/2000, they played this on constant loop with Airheads). Looking at it now, it's kind of a slog. Woody Harrelson carries the movie, with Randy Quaid being Randy Quiad (take that to mean something something). More Bill Murray would've pushed things up another notch. It was an okay way to fall asleep on the couch on a tired Saturday night.

Dr Strange was beautiful and awesome and fun. Insane cosmic visuals. A few actually touching moments. Solid A on the comic book movie scale. Quite a bit better than Ant Man.

Don't expect most of you jaded contrarian types to appreciate it though.
