    Ikaris flew too close to the sun. Inside it is way too close

  • The French Dispatch

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★★

    Held the auditorium door open for a woman who I didn't realize was unmasked and as she walked out she screamed "That's the worst movie I've ever seen in my life!"

    I do not agree with her. I liked it!

    If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power

    ★★★★

    Good companion piece to the album!

    I do wish the story had a bit more narrative connective tissue but I understand this isn't really that type of project so I can't fault it for that, that's just my personal preference. I also think though that the editing could have been smoother, cutting to black after every song made it feel slightly too music video-y to me. Yes I know it's a visual album whatever! But still, it felt jarring compared…

  • Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    Venom: Let There Be Carnage

    ★★★★

    Did not take itself seriously at all which made both the comedy and the superhero shit much better than the first movie! This is not high art but I had a very fun time watching it. Also great use of their one PG-13 f-bomb

  • Coherence

    Coherence

    ★★★★

    Liked this even more upon a rewatch and I suspect that'd be the case if I watched it yet again (preferably sooner than in 7 years this time) to pick up on the finer details that are unnoticeable the first time around (or when it's been 7 years and you don't remember the details anyway)

  • Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time

    Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time

    ★★★★

    This was very weird and confusing and cool and beautiful and I already feel like I need to rewatch the series + Rebuild movies to absorb it all even more
