True suspense for the dissolution of sanity. True A24 creativity. Truly, scarily understandable when you think about solitude and the idea of being Stuck.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022)
A Marvel movie with actual emotion?? Truly examining loss and grief??
Those truly great moments make the parts that pander to MCU-business hurt, and the climax where our hero finds redemption felt flatter and less earned than she or we deserve.
Last Seen Alive (2022)
Glimmer of decent production. Gerard Butler had a decent performance. The story was pretty good, actually, but…
This is important.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery (2022)
Definitely fun and a novel take on “murder mystery” but it didn’t feel… clever enough? It felt like most of the movie was exposition instead of the characters really figuring anything out until, all at once, at the end.
Don't Worry Darling (2022)
Interesting but definitely lacking. Exposition was too much in some places and too little everywhere else.
The Whale (2022)
Brendan Fraser fucking killed it. My pick for best actor.
We live and die by our truths and there aren’t always happy endings.
Die Hard (1988)
After Yang (2021)
Beautiful film. Lovely exploration of memory and humanity.
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Oh right in the nostalgia
