    Elvis

    austin butler plays an uninteresting and uncharismatic imitation of elvis presley. the music's good, but most of the time tom hanks' bad dutch accent is drowning it out. there's some vague attempt to say something about racism or exploitation, but it's so weak or paternalistic to almost cause offense. made me want to shoot my tv!

    an ugly, stupid, bloated mess of a movie. probably gonna win a few oscars and hopefully in a years time never be thought of again. baz sucks. this stinks.

    The Pink Panther

    an 8-9 year old me classic. cool 2006 style. steve martin is so funny. gag-fest.

    ★★

    matt reeve's the batman is overly long, unoriginal, uninspired, uninteresting, ideologically incoherent, inessential. if you've been paying close attention to all the big studio films of the last ten, twenty, thirty years none of this really should come as a shock. i'm disappointed. i was hoping this might be good. now i feel like a fool for getting my hopes up.

    i think the worst part for me, looking past the bloated runtime or the fascism, is just how unnecessary…

    Avatar: The Way of Water

    ★★★★

    i was kind of hoping with a title like that it would be a more in depth exploration of dialectics and/or monism. there's a bit there, i just would've liked more of it.

    otherwise pretty good. classic, solid story. wonderful vfx. genuinely hard to know what's real. even when you know something doesn't actually exist, it's hard to be sure.

    made me feel depressed i'll never go to pandora, or fall in love with an 8ft tall, beautiful, blue woman. excited to see what james does next.
