    was it really necessary to let two dudes named drew make hotel movies in 2018?

    Bad Times at the El Royale

    ★★★★★

    i keep coming back to this because i love the music and actors so much. the cinematography is also straight up insanely gorgeous. it makes perfect sense now that i found out it's the same dude who did atonement.

    the first time i kinda thought the vietnam scene was a little too clever but i can't help but admire the commitment to its production value, especially for such a short scene thrown in at the very end. i'd love to have heard goddard's pitch to the studio for that.

    ★★★★½

    the mixing of old spider-man nostalgia with newer more interesting characters was perfectly done and only heightened by some of the best 2D/3D seamlessly meshed animation my boggled eyes have ever seen.

    this is the purest comic book movie.
    voice actors slayed it.

    keanu powersliding his go-kart into every scene has to be some of the greatest improv acting of all time.
