    Drive-Away Dolls

    ★★★

    An unabashedly lesbian, no-think-just-vibes comedy that feels like a bunch of funny ideas stapled together. Coen sans-Coen takes on the buddy road trip genre as two gals travel to Tallahassee, Florida in a drive-away rental car, accidentally taking a briefcase that ain’t theirs along for the ride. 

    I can’t deny the fun I had with the cast’s performance. Margaret Qualley is a Y2K cowgirl who talks fast and fucks faster, and is a good counterpoint to Geraldine Viswanathan’s sexually reserved…

    Anyways, I’ll probably watch Part Two when it comes out.

    ★★★½

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

    "Stay where you belong. In my memories."

    Bad guys throw heavy motorcycles with just the grip of their thighs after Akira-sliding. Good guys individually propel the protagonist hundreds of feet in the air using just their bare strength. What else could you want from a Final Fantasy VII movie directed by the legendary Tetsuya Nomura, a man known for being "unnecessarily obtuse" but absolutely stylish (I enjoy his convoluted stories).

    Starting with a flash-forward, we then go back 298 years,…
