What To See This Week (04/01/22)

Morbius

DANGEROUSLY ill with a rare blood disease, biochemist Dr. Morbius attempts to cure himself. While at first it seems to be a radical success, he infects himself with a form of vampirism. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, this latest film from the Marvel Comics Universe stars Jared Leto, Adria Arjona, and Matt Smith, Jared Harris, AI Madrigal, and Tyrese Gibson.  The film garnered a very low score of 19% on the Rotten Tomatoes review aggregate site.  Barry Hertz from the Globe and Mail wrote: “If there is any justice in Hollywood, Morbius will be retconned to the margins of superhero cinema history. If the film doesn’t bury the genre alive first, that is.”

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

AFTER settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he is a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns with a new partner, Knuckles, in search of an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. Directed by Jeff Fowler, this animated feature is voiced by Ben Schwartz, Idris Elba, James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, and Jim Carrey. Variety’s Peter Debruge writes, “Sonic 2 ends much as the first one did, with hints that this blue hedgehog will buzz-saw his way through more adventures. Stick through the credits to find out which franchise character Paramount and Sega promise to introduce next.” Movie review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes gives it a score of 56%.
