    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★

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

    Probably my least favorite movie in the MCU so far. The inconsistent pacing and character jumping made it feel like it was 3 hours long, and it was full of dull and dreary moments, never-ending fights and arguments, and relied on character relationships that were flimsy at best. A few rousing moments couldn't save the drabness.

    Plus, the Russo Brothers can make the sound effects during their fight scenes as loud as they want; until someone actually shows any signs…

    ★★★★

    Not as good as Anderson's previous 3 films, but then, what is?

    It's absolutely astounding how precise this movie is. When I say that I mean that every single detail seems perfect arranged, perfectly timed, perfectly thought out. It is an absolute joy to experience this movie as a fan of movies.

    The only thing that I think keeps this from reaching the heights of his previous 3 films is a narrative structure that meanders from time to time with information dumps. There's a lot going on here.

    ★★★½

    A journey into the unexplained, full of ethereal images and horrifying encounters. It's untethered from any sort of narrative momentum, and that helps with the mood, which lasts from beginning to end.

    This kinda caught me off guard, as I was expecting something less mysterious, but we got something more difficult and worth revisiting later. I feel like the mysteries and wonder will grow with more viewings.

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    ★★★★★

    I first read The Perks of Being a Wallflower when I was 14, in my final year of middle school, and I became a complete and utter dweeb about it. I started gifting the book to all my friends for their birthdays. I would make a playlist of the mixtape from the book and give it to girls I liked. I started keeping a journal that detailed my thoughts ranging from small daily annoyances to my ever changing life philosophies…
