    Alita: Battle Angel

    ★★★★½

    "I'd do whatever I had to for you. I'd give you whatever I have. I'd give you my heart."

    I enjoyed rewatching this with my mom, and I commend her for picking this over Shazam! (I'll get to that one eventually). It was very nice to revisit this now that it's on home video. My favorite of the year so far behind Endgame.

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    “We used to look up at the sky and wonder at our place in the stars. Now we just look down and worry about our place in the dirt.”

    The Great Wall

    ★★★★½

    Visually the Great Wall itself and the Nameless Order fighting to defend it was gorgeous to behold. The costume design is great; I really dug the armor and bright color-coordinated squads for the army. Each Commander was well cast as well as the General and Strategist. The creativity in the walls defensives was cool from the bungee jumping spear-women under Commander Lin Mae, to the fireball trebuchets, and the scissoring blades protruding from the wall itself. Matt Damon was enjoyable…
