    Thor: Love and Thunder

    ★★★★

    I absolutely loved THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER. Top 5 Marvel movie. I did not expect this one to take me where it took me. Cried more than I thought I would, which was not at all. Really, really loved it. 

    #ThorLoveAndThunder is supremely silly and that is totally a compliment. It’s a big kids movie with serious themes.

    From a critical standpoint, RAGNAROK may be a better movie, but I loved #ThorLoveAndThunderID  more? Mostly because a certain character’s journey hit me in a very personal way. Will see again.

  • True Romance

    True Romance

    ★★★★½

    Watching TRUE ROMANCE 4K Director’s Cut. It’s fucking gorgeous.

    I know that QT is a great script writer, but every decision Tony Scott had on subverting that script to make it work onscreen was correct. That’s what great directors do. And QT would be the first to admit it.

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE: This movie is why I go to movies. You have never seen anything like it. It’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. It is pure cinema magic. You’re going to call this hyperbolic, but I don’t care. This thing owns my soul.

    I like that the Marvel multiverse stuff is prevalent right now because it’s a good entry point for #EverythingEverywhereAllatOnce but it has so much more to say…

    ★★★★

    Holy shit, THE NORTHMAN. D&D as FUCK. Frank Frazetta meets HAMLET and Robert E. Howard and I loved every bloody second.


    I wouldn’t have anticipated that CONAN THE BARBARIAN, awesome as it is, would be an artistic focal point for this generation of filmmakers but I’m very happy it was for Robert Eggers. And why not? Great is great. John Milius would adore THE NORTHMAN.
