    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★★

    I think it’s safe to say the Black Panther party has been widely misunderstood in American culture at large. It’s a big undertaking to portray radical groups in an “authentic” light on film as many have failed to do so. 
    King manages to cover a range of events and complexities within the party through an action flick package. The pace keeps the audience engaged while Stanfield and Kaluuya wow with their individual performances. 

    Keep in mind they have no chemistry at…

  • Tank Girl

    Tank Girl

    ★★★

    For my 9 year old self, Tank Girl was a very exciting post apocalyptic feminist work. Who wouldn’t want to be as carefree and cool in the face of inconceivable danger? In torn fishnets no less! 
    Watching it now, I notice some funky stuff must have happened in post production and budget cuts had to be made... 
    TBH I don’t doubt the expenses that come with making a realistic kangaroo/human rapper hybrid. 
    Despite some hiccups, it’s a fun time with all the classic 90s cheese. We just can’t deny its influence on queer culture, anarcho-femme trimmings and all

    Father Frost

    ★★★★

    This was my favorite winter time movie when I was little. 

    Between Baba Yaga’s on point portrayal and the actual baby bears carrying mushrooms, It’s soviet fantasy in its best form. The only issue is that Ivanushka is a fucking idiot (but that’s canon) 

    I’m irritated to see poor reviews from people who did not understand that this is a Russian children’s folktale. Some elements that might seem like a bizarre choice are cultural and have a foundational basis in myth and/or history

    Do I Sound Gay?

    ★★★

    The gay community is pulling its weight to “pass” and meet straight people at their comfort level. Internalizing homophobia rather than self acceptance will continue to happen if western culture doesn’t deconstruct gender roles beyond the surface level of how feigned equality benefits capitalism. End rant
