    This was perhaps a bad time to experiment with bootleg streaming*, but I had a great time regardless. 

    My first experience with Yorgos was Killing of the Sacred Deer and I was definitely not onboard after that, but now I feel reenegerized by this bizarre, hilarious film. It’s time for a Yorgos Reassessment...a Yorgosessment, if you will. 

    The performances were wonderful and so were the rabbits!

    Leonardo DiCaprio is only good when he plays the bad guy.

    Much better the second time around. I still think the Wakanda sequence doesn’t work all that well and that the CGI is super wonky across the entire film, but this is pretty much the best comic book crossover in any format. It’s a shame that I probably won’t get to see DC do anything like this.
