i really enjoyed the new mutants! or maybe i'm being overly kind because i love x-men in general. don't get me wrong, it isn't great: the story is weak, it feels out of date and oh my god the accents are horrible. but it's fun! ANYA TAYLOR-JOY FIGHTS A DEMON BEAR WITH A GIANT MAGIC SWORD!! it's FUN! i had no idea this was a horror, and i thought that was a really interesting concept. sure, it didn't really work, but at least it took a risk? it stands out, compared to other (*cough* mcu *cough*) superhero franchises that churn out films you literally can't tell apart.
