Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem might be another reboot but the film is pure TMNT joy for any fan of the franchise. My apologies for being way too late to watching the new film.

Anyway, it is now available to buy and rent on digital and streaming on Paramount+.…"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem Is Pure TMNT Joy"
The TIFF-premiering Dumb Money does for Wall Street Bets and GameStop what The Big Short did for the subprime mortgage crisis. You can thank Taylor Swift and her concert film for Sony changing their release plans. The initial plans were a wide release on October 6. But because of Taylor and the Swifties, the wide opening is now taking place on September 29. It’s for the best because the awards contender demands our attention even…"Dumb Money: The GameStop Movie We Didn’t Know We Needed"

Steven Spielberg has always had a way with the camera but what this film does is show audiences just how this love of filmmaking came to be.
