    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★

    will have more thoughts on this later for the LWLies podcast but... I liked it! Didn’t love every choice made (after the film manages to resist it for so long the usual ugly-ass CGI throwdown does happen) but most of it worked for me!

    An unwieldy, self-indulgent victory lap, sure, but the longer running time finally allows for some decompression - instead of cramming it with more sound and fury, it takes a fair amount of time for the characters…

    Eyes Wide Shut

    ★★★★½

    was transfixed by Kubrick’s blend of conservative moralism with a lampooning of the upper class, all while exploring why someone would be unfaithful - whether that’s boredom from the restriction of monogamy, creating urges that can’t be acted on, or good old-fashioned masculine insecurity. add in the ‘cheating as a state of mind’ stuff and the eradication of the barrier between dreams and reality, and you’ve got a (gorgeously shot) 2hr 45min relationship drama that kinda just flies by.

    Kaitlyn Dever!! 

    Fits right in with Lady Bird and Eighth Grade as a well directed, extremely funny high school movie that treats the desires and embarrassments of its protagonists with utmost sincerity, maaybe runs a little long but I was a fan of its bizarre digressions and patient setups to jokes that would pay off big-time *much* later. 

    Also Death Grips plays twice in this movie of course I love it lmao
