Regardless, or irregardless, Everything Everywhere All at Once is a masterpiece. Its title isn't just appropriate for the plot -- it's the method in which the film delivers its story. The film will overwhelm you with images, sensations, and an experience that will make you laugh, cry, and shout, "What the what?!"
Begin Again — The Batman Review
If you're looking for bombast or a narrative that hits you on the head, you'll miss the subtle notes that hide a wellspring of thought.

After announcing that their 2021 slate of movies would have same-day release dates for theaters and its HBO Max streaming service, Warner Bros. also gave fans stuck at home during shelter-in-place orders something else to look forward to during the holiday season.
We Got Fun and Games — Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review
It's a mix of Freaky Friday and the Breakfast Club, but the action/adventure twist makes Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle a fun film. It also helps that the movie doesn't eschew character building and development.
Defiant — Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review
It's disappointing, underwhelming, and counter to everything I expected it to be.
But maybe that's the point.
