Directing Disney’s content machinery towards horror-flavored excess, Sam Raimi proves that Marvel is willing to hand over its creative reins only so far.
While not as perfect as Game Night, The Story of Fire Saga is a hilarious sendup of Eurovision and another great comedic turn from Rachel McAdams.
Game Night is the funniest film to come out this year (would be even if there was more competition). It’s funny because it’s extremely clever, but it’s also funny because it’s not afraid to be silly.
The film succeeds by letting these characters reconnect slowly, naturally, awkwardly, by giving them space to circle each other; it looks at them with sympathy, not with judgement.
