    And in the end
    The love you take
    Is equal to the love you make

    A film that emulates our hyper-online, cacophonous, and draining world with disturbing and absurdist perfection. Like reality, it bludgeons us into near numbness with ceaseless movement and stunning action choreography (dildo nunchucks ftw). Nothing matters—a phrase as liberating as it is dangerous. Humans have a limit. We can only care about so much. Because of the internet, it is now theoretically possible to pay attention…

    War of the Worlds

    ★★★★½

    Spielberg’s style at its most maximalist. Every shot sells the scale and hopelessness of Cruise and co.’s situation. Constant 360 pans, oner chase sequences, and shocking violence whir together to form a true terror cocktail and one of Spielberg’s most mesmerizing movies. With maybe 10 minutes of set up, a solid 100 minutes of this film is spent screaming, running, and repeating. But with each new car, boat, town, house and basement, Spielberg uses masterful blocking to convey power dynamics,…
