    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    Everything Everywhere All at Once uses the medium of film to make me, personally, ugly cry for an unreasonably long time. Honestly, what a breathtaking film- tossing genre limitations and conventions to the wind and delivering a story that is never less than totally sincere, no matter what it's showing onscreen.

    And considering the sheer, unbridled insanity that is onscreen throughout this movie, that's really saying something. Despite all the surreal craziness that a "multiverse" premise can dole out when…

    ★★★½

    Over time I've grown to adore this movie, honestly. Sincerely. Unironically. It zips and zooms with aplomb, equal parts comic book silliness and G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero jingoism.

The movie wastes no time plunging Vita into a psycho-sexual…

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

    I really really liked this movie when I first saw it. Throughout 2016, I really really liked this movie. But, last night, my opinion of it got major complicated. I've always excused or explained its copycatting of A New Hope as a necessary move because fans were bitter about the prequels. But, fuck fans. If this is what they brought the franchise down to, fuck them.

    All three prequels were better than this movie. They at least showed us new…
