    Red Notice

    ★★

    No, not great, but also not the disaster some people seem to be calling it. A perfectly watchable Netflix original that I can't imagine getting worked up about - perfect fodder for sliding into my memory hole never to be thought about again within the next 8 hours.

    Over the years, I have often made a pained facial expression and sneered whenever anyone has brought up the Raimi trilogy of Spider-Man movies as one of the best of the genre. I’ve clamored about my distaste for Tobey Maguire, how I don’t really like Kirsten Dunst, how I just don’t vibe with these movies (this one in particular). When I was nine, I saw this with my brothers and my dad, and I remember walking out the theater thinking,…
