  • Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus

    Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus

    ★★★½

    Invader Zim was a favorite of mine that disappeared far too soon, and Enter the Florpus is all the chaotic B-movie mayhem that you would hope. It regularly jokes about how the show has been gone for so long, but it proceeds from there into another classic ZIM adventure.

    The art is still fantastic, perhaps even improved. The voice cast has returned and are at the top of their game.

    I hope this is a sign of more to come!

  • Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling

    Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling

    ★★★

    Fundamentally, this is just a longer Rocko's Modern Life episode, and that's just fine. It tackles modern anxieties and issues with the kind of radical sensibility that reminds you sense shouldn't be radical. It doesn't seek to reinvent the wheel, but it serves as an elegant reminder that the wheel is there and as good as ever.

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

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

    Infinity War was monolithic. From the moment of its release right up until the last frames of Endgame, the third Avengers film stood as this impossible feat- a funny superhero film with an unnaturally star-lined ensemble cast that mercilessly stomps on hope.

    I fully expected that Endgame would overshadow its older sibling- but instead what I've found is that Infinity War's domineering, straightforward plot lingers over Endgame's overly complex norm-rattling conclusions.

    Both films will go down in history for the scale of their ambition. But where Endgame was a culmination, Infinity War was poetry.

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★½

    While I found Infinity War to be the more savvy sibling, it only serves as part of an effortless 1-2 punch where the stakes are raised, the consequences are delivered in painful spades, and the grand victory is paid for with blood. Endgame was necessary, weird, and largely satisfying, with a climax that made me cry tears of joy as everything came together in one final epic stand.

    I won't pretend this film is perfect the way it "needed" to be, but the fact it's any good at all boggles one's mind.
