    Dissecting this movie in any way seems to go against what I believe is its whole point… it's a movie I've generally just let wash over me in the past without really thinking what it's about, just that it really moved me in ways no other movie did, and that's probably the way…

    Dreams of a Life

    ★★½

    It's taken me years to get around to seeing this because, despite how interesting it sounded, the synopsis alone was enough to depress the f**k out of me. I'm painfully aware of how long it would take for anyone to notice sometimes were I to suddenly die in my sleep or something - if it can happen to someone as apparently vivacious as Joyce then it's practically just a matter of "when" for someone like me.

    Honestly, I'm not sure…

    I know this franchise is controversial right now but like ffs, this one in particular, it literally deals with a father son relationship where the father is called Ego and is actually a whole planet and if that isn't aware of toxic masculinity I don't know what is. I love so much about this, like Drax and Mantis, Gamora and Nebula (which really plays differently after Infinity War, especially how Peter is dealing with this whole father drama so every…

    “Which half?"

    "Most of the time, the best stuff is the popular stuff. It's much safer to say popularity sucks, because that allows you to forgive yourself if you suck. And I don't forgive myself. Do you?"

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Someone reminded me how much I love this film today (it doesn't take much really) n I figured I should explain here since it's in my 4 favourites… this is just a copy paste of a review I wrote last year when it came out on blu-ray…

    The Little Mermaid II is honestly turning into one of my favourite movies in a very serious way. There are too many abominable reviews of it out there and I've been meaning to…

    "Some of us just decided to do something about it."

    Like Episode 7 had Luke, Leia and Han etc, this too has a gimmick I can't even begin to talk about yet, but which was enough to have me doubting my first impression since it was so distractingly joyous. Let's just say the uncanny valley has been thoroughly breached with this movie... if only for technical reasons, I'm sure this thing has profound value as to where it stands in…
