    Get ready James Cameron - this is the most someone has written about this movie since a year after it came out. 
    No star rating here because after almost ten years I STILL don’t know what to make of this movie. Honestly I still think there’s a lot that it does really really well, and it sorta do more right things than wrong, but it gets some BIG things INCREDIBLY wrong, so much so that it almost ruins the entire…

    hey so what the fuck ari aster


    EDIT: So while I didn’t want to compare this to the directors previous work, I do feel it important to mention I really didn’t like Hereditary at first, and while it has grown on me a little I still don’t really like it. I was way more invested in the first half, which, while horrific, was more of a dramatic horror film - once it got supernatural I lost interest. So while I…

    Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance

    ★★★★

    Hold the fuck up

    Right off the bat you realize that this movie is going to go in a COMPLETELY different direction - and I gotta be honest, despite my love of Evangelion being founded more in its dramatic and psychological roots - I kinda love this take on it. 

    You still get a lot of the drama and psychological stuff, sure - but you also get some fantastically animated action sequences and interesting new concepts for the Evangelion universe,…

    Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

    ★★★½

    For better or for worse, this is just a visually upgraded and very streamlined recap of the first six or so episodes of the anime. And it’s... okay. The fight scenes are fantastic, with CG used only when necessary and the upgraded designs and animation being absolutely stunning. But when you condense so much into such a small time frame you lose a lot of the crucial details that make Evangelion what it was. Gone is a lot of the…

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★½

    I mean yeah the movie itself was cute and really fun and I had a great time, but those post credits scenes man... they both kinda wipe your memory of everything before because you’re too busy using your remaining brain power to pick your jaw up off the floor. I love those wham stingers but they kinda did too good a job here cause it’s all I can talk about.

    BUT - like I said, it’s cute, it’s fun, it’s…

    It feels wrong saying this after learning how acclaimed this film is... but this story is kind of a mess. Ultimately the important beats you can still follow, and admittedly a lot of it doesn’t really matter - the important part is the character of Tetsu, who you follow throughout the movie and truly find yourself invested in. But at a few points I did find myself a little confused. 

    HOWEVER...


    Good god this is one of the most beautiful…

  • Pacific Rim

    Pacific Rim

    ★★★½

    So watching this again after praising it for years, a LOT of cracks started to appear. Some of the writing is a little too cheesy, some of the characters are a little thin, and generally the story doesn’t hold together as well as I thought it had. 

    BUUUUT a robot has rocket elbows to punch harder so that’s fucking awesome. 

    This really does feel like a live action anime from the 70’s at times, down to the hokey dialogue. It…

    EDIT:


    Wow. 


    All I am capable of saying. Wow.


    I feel like I say this a lot, but this time I mean it truly - I have NEVER been so affected by a film before. Yes, I’ve had movies stay with me, but nothing quite like what I saw. I don’t think this movie gave me ego death - but from what I know about it, this is as close as I’ve come, or at the…

    Oh Godzilla, what terrible language!”


    This was the point when the series started to gear a LITTLE more towards kids, but it’s still a crucial point in Godzilla’s history, as it’s the first appearance of King Ghidorah, one of Godzilla’s most infamous and powerful enemies, and it was the film that marked the new direction the films would take in the Showa era. It’s also likely the basis of the inspiration for the recent Godzilla: King of the Monsters, since…
