    so happy for everyone else in the theater that enjoyed this movie 

    neat to pick up the foreshadowing this second watch, but again I’m just not sold on the story. I think I was spoiled by wandavision and loki in thinking it would be something profound. The whole plot exists solely because Peter Parker doesn’t understand what “everyone” means? / didn’t realize it in time ? Just as heart wrenching on the second watch tho. 

    CGI lizard is bad. Didn’t notice the mouth doesn’t move normally this time around.

    father son house of Gucci amen

    A little disappointed that Gaga’s best lines were all already seen in trailers, etc. Would have loved some better one liners saved for the movie. Genuinely thought this was really funny. I appreciated how subtle it was but also very campy. Thought it was well balanced. Will be rewatching.

    I am disappointed with how the movie ended. Why do men who mistreat women somehow always win? While there is some vindication for other characters, surely there was a better way to end the movie. The female protagonist has motives that are questionable to some but noble to others. The movie walks a thin line between the two, ultimately deciding to make her the villain. She is left sad and alone, while the Marquis finds love. The dialogue throughout the movie is excellent and witty. If I had liked the ending, I would've given it four stars.
