Eternals ★★½

Almost certainly would have been better as a DC movie, where it could have been a less-Snydery entry in their dark and brooding and vaguely metaphysical canon. Instead it joins Civil War in the league of Marvel movies that have intriguing ideas but lack the courage of their convictions.

I don't know that any version of this movie would have worked perfectly, with the weird characters and confusing powers and near-absurd scale, but it would have been good to see them try.
