    ★★★½

    An immensely silly movie that I had a total blast watching. The early comparisons people made between this and Joker were actually very apt - both are examples of filmmakers using the depressing state of IP-driven cinema to craft gorgeous, handsomely made A-list movie star vehicles that have barely a single unique or coherent thought but are a riot regardless.

Though their placement within the MCU is now shaky at best, the Netflix Marvel shows at least achieved this; they may have been riddled with bloat but they…
