    Annihilation

    ★★★★★

    Change is terrifying.

    You mourn a thousand different deaths of yourself throughout all your life and have the hubris to believe you're still you.

    ---------------------------------------

    Before we had accepted our place in the stars, the infinite turned us mad. Azathoth, the manifestation of our discovery of endless insignificance and turning back in fear.

    Time dulls the sharpest of blades however, and the terror which once gripped so easily fails to bleed us any longer. The mundanity of the bottomless dark…

    What can we do? We must live our lives

    Sometimes we mourn the people we lose in life not because they were so deserving of our tears, such paragons of righteousness and joy, but simply because they were all we had.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------

    One of the many unreality of movies lies in their resolution. Eureka moments and sudden realizations are for the most part, a farce. Reality grinds on you. It sits and stirs and boils and molds and chips away…

    ★★★★

    "Sometimes I think I've felt everything I'm ever gonna feel and from here on out I'm not going to feel anything new - just lesser versions of what I've already felt."

    A very beautiful, melancholy movie.

    Her presents a prescient theme that most listless post-modern cafe dorks of the late 90's or tragically doldrumatic post-hipster coffee-shop dorks of the two-thousand-teens will find immediate solace in: There are times in life when the only real feeling we can muster is one…

    Thank You for Smoking

    ★★★

    I'm not sure who the target audience is. Seems to fill a similar niche to Wolf of Wall Street in its caustic and pitch-black humor on American life and politics, but doesn't really handle it with as much finesse as Scorsese did. Whatever, everyone has a mortgage to pay.

    Tons of fun slapstick and a pretty tone-perfect flow throughout, but just feels weird? Enjoyable enough though, so I'll be happy to remember it fondly.

    Mostly made me want to rewatch Burn After Reading.

    ★★★★★

    Started crying 30 minutes in and never really stopped.

    After Yang completed caught me off-guard. All defenses down, right to the exposed underbelly.

    Recently, my daughter has been asking me when I'll die.

    It's a small realization but in it I see blooming and growing, all times I'm missing out on. It feels like a crime that she's able to grow in all these invisible ways, in all these tiny human reflections of me. I see myself in her…

    I'm still reeling. Haven't felt like this since Fury Road, on the constant brink of tears and desperately trying to clear my schedule to get another showing in.


    Everything Everywhere All At Once cracks open your skull and wires a car battery directly into your brain.

    I laughed/cried/winced/squirmed/cheered/celebrated/groaned. Not a single second went by where I wasn't entirely enthralled by what was happening. In fact, this might be the singularly most enthralling movie I've ever seen

    EEAAO felt like watching…
