    I hate weddings. I don’t have any problems with them in the abstract, but in practice, they’re horribly depressing to me. The one most prominent in my mind happened a few years back — it was my youth pastor’s wedding that I was required to attend for reasons that will likely never reveal themselves. For something that’s supposed to be this huge declaration of love and optimism towards its perpetuity, it wasn’t meaningfully different than a medical procedure. Speech, walk…

    The story of my life has always been a story of movies. As far back as I can remember I’ve been watching them, to the degree that many of my earliest memories involve movies. My first obsession came from even before that, though — when I was just 2 and a half years old, I begged my family to take me to Cars at least once a week. I’ve been told I saw Cars over a dozen times during its…

    Not the most comfortable movie to watch on an airplane, but holyfuckingshit this is amazing! Jenna Ortega is going to be one of the greatest actors of my generation.

    An absolute blast start to finish, functions almost like a series of vignettes where there's barely enough plot to string them together, so all that matter is the moment-to-moment bliss it exudes. Visually this is all I could ask for: a bombardment of every color in existence, thrown together sparingly so no image is the slightest bit dull to take in. The action that backs up that imagery is nothing short of remarkable, with the opening sequences standing out…

    TW//self-harm, attempted suicide

    There's a group of four scars on my right leg. I've cut myself all over my body, but those four are the deepest, and those are the ones that aren't leaving.

    I think it was in seventh grade I realized something was wrong. There was a feeling that everything was falling apart even though nothing was. It was always lurking in the back of my mind, but that year it lept out at me and suddenly everything…

    Shit, not that I expected anything else. Credit where it's due, the chemistry between the leads is solid, and they all obviously want to be there which sporadically manages to overcome the godawful screenplay. I avoid Marvel movies for a reason, and this is a pretty good summary of all the reasons I avoid them. The most obviously damning piece here is the utter lack of identity that's become so prevalent as of late -- it's an unending stream…
