The first time I saw this in theaters I was absolutely blown away but thought that it would lose impact on subsequent watches. 15+ viewings in and that was 100% incorrect on my part. This movie is perfect in nearly every way. The score is haunting at times and really evokes a feeling of tension. The lighting and stark contrast throughout add to the claustrophobic feeling I get from both the alien craft and that weird tent city they’re living in for the duration.

I have seen few movies as funny as this.

The lack of attention to…
Coming off the sort of boilerplate Marvel offering that was Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was a real breath of fresh air.
Typically I have the same issues with most MCU offerings despite generally enjoying them very much. The main one is usually that the action is often over edited and seems far too frenetic to keep up. Shang-Chi is equally as kinetic as previous offerings, but the quick edits work far better with the…
