The Fabelmans (2022)

Rotten Tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes

The Fabelmans (2022): Steven Spielberg's personal coming-of-age tale with three subplots that don't quite mesh: his early love of movie-making, his family's complicated relationships, and a school bullying incident. The family story is best. His mother deserves her own movie. B+

Enola Holmes 2 (2022)

Rotten Tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes

Enola Holmes 2 (2022): Sherlock's young sister is still smart, independent, and good with jujutsu. Young girls should still love her. This time, she finds a woman missing from a match factory sweatshop. Clues galore. Her sleuthing skills are over the top and the best fun. C+

Spirited (2022)

Rotten Tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes

Spirited (2022): Modern take on Dickens Christmas Carol, or a mangling of it anyway. Scrooge(s) and the ghosts are hard to tell apart. More a buddy movie with Will Farrell and Ryan Reynolds. Big musical numbers are good, but movie seems embarrassed by them. Worse, NSFK (kids). D+

Inside Man (TV 2022)

Rotten Tomatoes

Rotten Tomatoes

Inside Man (TV 2022): Vicar, trying to protect others, makes increasingly more desperate mistakes, putting his family and himself in jeopardy. Plot holes galore. Halfway around the world on death row, the nemesis he doesn't know he has is just as absurd. Still a fun watch. C+
