    The World After Us

    Saw this in a cinema in France without subtitles so I really shouldn’t judge it. BUT I SHALL! Because as was confirmed in conversations with people who understood far more of the dialogue than I did, it was a bit superficial and clichéd. 
    It had great close-ups of good performances tho and really just give me that on a big screen all day long. And the score was très bon!

    Made me wanna make movies so badly.

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ridiculous that I’ve watched like 3 movies in the past two months and this is one of them. But then again, I like it. A lot of it.

    A couple of thoughts after this viewing - with a little distance to the snydercut frenzy:
    It’s clunky as hell. The sets look cheap, the whole movie often does. Its trashiness only fully occurred to me this time around. I still think there is something special going on when the film takes its…

    Or at least thought it was perfectly fine. There were a bunch of real locations and beautiful IMAX photography, mainly to show people crying. It’s the first Marvel film I’ve seen that I thought was actually visually pleasing. And I liked the action, too. Those monsters have nice colors. And I liked the spanning-centuries…

    Best Pixar in years, I agree!

    Do I always, no matter how often I rewatch this thing, discover something new and interesting? No.

    A film for the soul.

  • The Batman

    The Batman

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The entire first half made me really giddy and excited with how dark and good it was. I liked the way it made Bruce Wayne into a full-on deranged emo psycho and it teased a psychological depth that felt unique. I was really excited. But then it sort of started to trail off. One scene too many by the bat signal, one scene too many at the night club, one scene too many of a really rather dumb Gordon and…

    “I warn you, he’s a Fourierist!”

    Absolutely delightful. Laughed so much. And of course I’m in love with Audrey, as is most everyone.

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    Really surprised that I liked this. It has a creativity to it that doesn’t feel entirely focus grouped and actually developed some compelling stakes in act 3.

  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl

    So much better than Mank.
