    Wow… will preface by saying I can’t even put into words everything I felt and thought… but a fantastically made and fantastically important film!!! 

    I think the 80s tend to come across as a complete hellscape for queer people, and there’s no denying it was dangerous and scary. But queer people found happiness then too!! Multiple people throughout the film mention how proud they are of the lives they’ve lived and they just exude hope. I really liked that this…

    I will not pretend to be an expert on romcoms (because I am absolutely not). But I DO feel confident in dubbing this one of the best, if not the best, of the modern romcoms (and by modern I mean like streaming-era last-five-years kinda thing). It is so freaking lovely idek. Has its flaws ofc but I really can't bring myself to list them out because it's made me too smiley and giddy. Lana Condor is THE ABSOLUTE CUTEST. Most…

    Ough really good. Like her impact will span/already has spanned generations. Honestly perfectly written… can’t imagine it progressing any better than it did. Like the ending especially… good good stuff. Le slayest effects in the world TRULY. The 80s were a beautiful time for practical effects… most disturbing thing tbh was how much Kurt Russell looks like armie hammer. Uncanny similarities…. But anyways. Freaking amazing to see in theater, thought I missed my chance but I didn’t!!!! Very fun that everyone else there was so into it and excited too. Yaayayaya

    ★★★★½

    Sooo freaking cute. Wes going from the mediocrity of Bottle Rocket immediately to this is very very much a slay. Like ohhh him and Owen took notes on those criticisms they really took that to heart... But anyways so so adorable. Jason Schwartzman is suchhh a charming little freak in this I can't even believe. Yes he's a creep yes I adore him what about it!!!! Great great camerawork obviii even without all the crazy style we get now. Love it as fuckkkk forever bye!

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★½

    No homoeroticism 💔💔💔💔 no “Take My Breath Away”😢😢😢😢 but actually surprisingly quite good !

    Tom cruise is still terrifying 2 me. That’s a horrific man. But fine in this whatever. Miles Teller toooo scrumchuzz! 

    This is what blockbuster action movies should be. No one is expecting them to be profound artsy freaky shit. Just use that budget to deliver something nice looking and high quality and engaging!! A great looking picture and an entirely bearable storyline. Pretty yass for military propaganda I would say!
