    Intruder

    ★★★★

    the perfect blend of 80’s consumerism and Pepsi-heavy product placement, along with some very dope kills, a great sense of location, an excellent final girl, and a baffling cameo from Bruce Campbell. basically everything that a slasher from this time period should aspire to be.

  • The Secret Life of Pets 2

    The Secret Life of Pets 2

    ★★★

    literally has almost the same exact ending as Dark Phoenix. fun, fast, yet slightly forgettable, this film doesn’t necessarily revolutionize the wheel, but it’s an enjoyable escape from reality for approximately seventy (!!!) minutes, and the animation is very smooth and well done as well. kinda like how this exists as a series of vignettes that all tie together at the end, which makes it stand out ever so slightly from other animated films of this caliber.

    theater usher: so did you like the movie

    me, my voice cracking and crumpled tissues falling out of my pockets: ʸᵉᵃʰ ᶦᵗ ʷᵃˢ ᵒᵏ

    theater usher: excuse me?

    me, sobbing and melting into the ground as my spirit leaves my physical body: oh my god i'm so sorry

    THE film of a lifetime. so silently impactful and grand. it's all about time.
