    Eternals

    ★★★

    Eternals may be the eternal con drum of the Marvel universe. As I wish this rewatch provided something more rewarding, unfortunately not the case here. Mostly this watch just reinforced my ambivalent feelings towards it: of neither hate or love. Although, some moments are funnier upon rewatch.

Singed in a glorious blaze of amber twilight one minute and stark ash gray skies the next, like the constant embodiment of one giant hallow tombstone; that reminds us of the true toll of war. While creating a lush portrait of beauty and death simultaneously to form some eerie duality, yet suddenly possessed by its uncanny realism we can’t…
