    Halloween Kills

    ★★★½

    I remember almost nothing about the first one of these except that it was dull, unambitious, and undeserving of the outrageous amount of both praise and vitriol it garnered (generally speaking, when shit on this website is divisive it almost always means it's actually mediocre. I don't think people understand what a mediocre movie is anymore (or that mediocre movies actually also have value)), so given how similarly divided the reaction to this seemed to be I figured it'd be…

Full of perfect performances that make every moment feel crystalline and true, even as the format smears and blends those moments together- always reminding us that every image contains its own afterimage.

    After a thrilling episode of ABC's Wipeout, this kicks into high gear with Kristen Wiig's best Michelle Pfeiffer impression, and some real gutbuster scenes of Chris Pine being awestruck at stuff that definitely existed in his time, like fireworks and big trains. After about six more hours of at-best tone-deaf/at-worst truly vile geopoliticking including a scene where noted IDF supporter Gal Gadot literally uses a missile to save several arab children, followed by a few of the worst, ugliest fight…
