    this era’s Citizen Kane. 

    looking back on your childhood, coming to the realization that you can’t march to the beat of your own drum anymore. you can’t dance like no one’s looking, sing like no one’s hearing, talk like no one’s judging. it's freedom revoked for the construction of an appeasing image, one that’s expected from others. Spencer isn’t all gloom and doom, sure it sees that realization as a trap, but like all traps it can be escaped, you just need the courage to find the way out.

    ★★★

    Russell Crowe has the greatest vibe in this. so charming, makes fun of the stupidity in that “yeah sure lol” kinda way, but wind feels like it’s rushing towards you whenever he stares seriously —he just wants the best for you. will be very funny if this manages to flip a switch in someone’s brain, but the sugary spicy approach to war worked well.

    when Jake, for the first time in his Avatar, sinks his feet into the dirt, the world of Pandora comes alive within that second — not believing in the Na’vi, that fruit that’s like a big gusher, the planet in the sky that’s so close you can see the terrain, is to not let him get another chance at feeling his legs again. such a freeing movie.

    A truly lovely movie about Emma Thompson coming to terms with the fact that she’s hot

    Last Night in Soho

    ★½

    in 100 minutes manages to make a whopping one point about men being predatory, and spends another 5 minutes siding with those very same men by villainizing the victim of sexual harassment for the sake of a cheap twist, and ends with a student who attempted murder being adored by everyone for her fashion skills. Edgar Wright’s completely lost it.


    good thing we don’t have to spend another night in Soho
