Movie Review Double Feature: ‘Strange World’ & ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’

Both movies received a mini-review from Bob Garver in this week’s edition of Movie Review.

Movie Review: 'The Menu'

The characters’ eccentricities, mind games, and dark humor all come together to make “The Menu” one of the best films of the year.

Movie Review: 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever'

"I’m in no hurry to return to Wakanda after this movie."

Movie Review: 'Ticket To Paradise'

"If you need more than a gorgeous island and A-listers coasting on their effortless charm, get a Ticket to something else."

Movie Review: 'Black Adam'

"I know it would cost this movie its teenage audience to go with an R rating, but fans can sniff out a neutered R-rated property a mile away."

Movie Review: 'Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile'

“Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile” is a movie that the family needs to see only if you’re low on other options, but there aren’t too many other options, so sure, go see it.

Movie Review: 'Smile'

"My mouth was in a bored frown throughout most of this movie, it wasn’t screaming or laughing and it definitely wasn’t smiling."

Movie Review: 'Don't Worry Darling'

Review: 'At first it looks promising, maybe even award-worthy. But gradually things fall apart until it’s an unsalvageable mess.'

Movie Review: 'The Woman King'

"For the first time in a long time, I heard heartfelt cheering and gasping from an audience that was invested in characters they had known for only a few minutes."

Movie Review: 'Barbarian'

"I’ve seen a lot of critical praise for 'Barbarian,' and I’m sorry to say that I just don’t get it."

Movie Review: 'The Invitation'

"I thought the villains were just into run-of-the-mill ritualistic killing, but it turns out there’s a supernatural element too."

Movie Review: 'Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero'

"There’s a lot to like about 'Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero,' even if you’re new to the series."

Movie Review: 'Nope'

“Nope” is the third horror outing for writer/director Jordan Peele. It’s a solid effort, if maybe a step down from his previous two films.

Movie Review: 'Bullet Train'

"This is a fun movie that should satisfy both action and comedy fans."

Movie Review: 'DC League Of Super-Pets'

On more than one level, “DC League of Super-Pets” falls right between “The Secret Life of Pets” and “The Lego Movie.”

Movie Review: 'Where The Crawdads Sing'

"Despite the strengths of Edgar-Jones, 'Where the Crawdads Sing' is otherwise a mess."

Movie Review: 'Thor: Love And Thunder'

"The humor can be hit-or-miss and the action is memorable only for being set to the music of Guns N’ Roses."

Movie Review: 'Minions: The Rise of Gru'

The new film takes place long before the “Despicable Me” movies, but after 2015’s “Minions.”

Movie Review: 'Elvis'

"I’ve been told that, like many biopics, this movie makes Elvis out to be a better person than he actually was."

Movie Review: 'Lightyear'

"Much like Buzz isn’t used to the new kinds of sandwiches, I’m not used to Pixar movies that are this bad."

Movie Review: 'Jurassic World Dominion'

"I’m not seeing a lot of love for Jurassic World Dominion from other critics, and I can understand why."

Movie Review: The Bob’s Burgers Movie

"This was the most fun I’d had at the movies… maybe all year."

Movie Review: 'Top Gun: Maverick'

"The likeable characters and exciting action sequences make 'Top Gun: Maverick' the epitome of a crowd-pleasing summer blockbuster."

Movie Review: 'Downton Abbey: A New Era'

"I wasn’t sure if 'Downton Abbey: A New Era' would work, and my doubts have been proven unfounded."
