    Avengers: Infinity War

    Finally watched AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. Ugh. Just ugh. Ridiculous plot pushed along at warp speed by utterly idiotic character decisions and the corporate desire to get all the toy figurines in one movie. Boo. 

    Drax’s take on Thor is the best thing in the whole damn movie: “He’s like if a pirate and an angel made a baby.” Damn straight. 

    Let’s only let Taika make Marvel movies from now on.

    Also, spoilers......

    Vision was not fucking worth any of that. Any of it. Ugh.

    Okay, maybe it’s ridiculous, but I am incapable of not bring charmed by either Sam Rockwell or Anna Kendrick. Especially when Sam dances.

    Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold

    Is it terrible that I just want to quit my job, drop out of school and spend my days tracking down and reading everything Joan Didion ever wrote?

    One of my fave films of 2017. Watch when you’re in the mood for something contemplative and beautiful. Like Saarinen’s church - slightly asymmetrical but balanced. On rewatch, I was more attuned to the scenes that echo or mirror each other.  John Cho, if you’re ever in Vancouver, can you hit me up? I’ll show you my favourite buildings and you can help me work through some shit.
