  • In & Out

    In & Out 1997

    ★★★ Watched 29 Mar, 2015 2

    I'm... a little torn on this one. While as always I freaking love Kevin Kline, and there are a couple good really laugh-out-loud moments in this movie, it touches on a pet peeve of mine: that gay people will always act a certain way, and if someone acts like that, well, then, they must be gay.

    At this point, this is my favorite Marvel superhero movie (I had to think for a bit about whether I liked it better than Iron Man, but I'm going to go with yes). It's what I wanted The Avengers to be: a light-hearted adventure with delightful characters and some surprisingly moving emotional moments. And I knew pretty early on I was going to love it. Specifically, the moment where Chris Pratt dances through the alien cave. The humor running throughout…
