    Another Round

    I missed the first 20 minutes cause i was waiting for my food from the on-site food truck, my grandpa called in the middle of the film and i spent 10 minutes trying to get back in touch with him because i hung up on him to stop my phone from ringing and i felt rude, i dropped half my popcorn on the ground and almost set my pants on fire with a cigarette while trying to catch my popcorn…

    Queer Film Club, January

    Wow I am so glad I finally got around to this. The Watermelon Woman, Funeral Parade of Roses and Tongues Untied were three films that I knew I was going to love, and had wanted to see for quite some time, but never quite got around to it. I watched all three for the first time in the last month or so and they lived up and exceeded my expectations, all shooting straight up into my…

    Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

    ★★½

    I was so bored the whole time, I almost left the cinema like a dozen times but I have too much fomo to leave movies early. Maybe the fight choreography was a little more inventive than the average marvel film, but I honestly couldn't tell because of the ridiculous close up fast cut underexposed cinematography. Some interesting set pieces, especially the bus fight scene, but like all marvel films there was this overpolished corporate cgi sheen to every scene, even…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★½

    Some interesting moments on a technical level and generally solid performances from the cast make The Suicide Squad tolerable, perhaps even moderately fun at times, but the muddled political statements fall completely flat for me. It seems to be trying to seem radical and anti-US imperialism in order to appeal to leftists, but is too afraid to go all in with the theme for fear of pissing off conservatives. The US military industrial complex isn't painted in the best light…

    The Matrix

    ★★★★★

    The Matrix is such a hugely influential film when it comes to action cinematography. Bullet time is so fucking cool, the choreography is awesomely bad-ass. The aesthetic and soundtrack are also peak 90s. Keanu Reeves is amazing, as is the rest of the cast, and their outfits make me want to go join a 90s hacking gang. But what I love the most about The Matrix is how the whole thing is a (very thinly veiled) metaphor for coming out…

    Queer cinema month (13/20)

    The first hour and a bit of this and the last 20 minutes to me felt almost like 2 different movies. The first portion is really adorable, with a very open and optimistic view of gender variance in a young child. It also was one of the sweetest portrayals of sibling love I've ever seen. The way Jeanne was quick to accept and respect Mikaëls gender expression, even seeming proud to have a brother, was really…
