    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Holy shit.

    Into the Spider-Verse bursts through with tremendous exuberance, utilising the medium like no other superhero film I've seen - a bolstering desire to invigorate audiences through its psychedelic and orgasmic visuals, reminding those skeptical (such as my dad) that this is no mere 'cartoon', but rather an immeasurable ode to the conception of these crime fighting sensations that have dominated pop culture for a decade. And in that decade, we have seen an unforseen flurry of features -…

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    "I don't think people are meant to be by themselves. That's why if you actually find someone you care about, It's important to let go of the little things. Even if you can't let go all the way. Because nothing sucks more then feeling all alone, no matter how many people are around." - JD, Scrubs

    I've always felt lonely.

    To varying degrees of course - the presence of family and friends have certainly lessened the impact some days, but…

    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Hugo Weaving, Terence Stamp and a (delicious) Guy Pearce on a road trip of rudimentary glamour. Priscilla: Queen of the Desert is a masterwork; a dazzling drag tale set along the Australian desert, where every Pet Shop Boys track and R. B. Greaves groove comes with a guaranteed glittery rush of sensational performances, all the while capturing The Outback without any sugary coating whatsoever. The result is a contrast providing both commentary and comedy; as our three lovable leads combat…

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

    "I see this spark in you. It's amazing. Whatever you choose to do with it, you'll be great."

    My second viewing of Into the Spider-Verse saw the blooming of a connection with Miles' journey, but it wasn't until the third trip to the theatre (something I never usually do) that, much like the visuals themselves, this attachment exploded into a bukkake of personal enlightenment.

    Hear me out.

    It all came to me in the film's final act. Four key players…

    Love, Simon

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    "Sometimes I think I'm destined to care so much about one person it nearly kills me."

    A quick and albeit unnecessary caveat; I'm gay. I came out to my close friends in 2015 and my family a year later. Both were in less than ideal conditions (which allowed this quote to truly hit hard). I've become much more accepting of myself since then, but I still have some changes to make. (including but not limited to my terrible wardrobe)
