    "Lead them to paradise."

    I need to start this by saying, I must be cursed. This is my second IMAX screening in a row where I've been distracted by forces out of my control. To be fair, the theater also could not have anticipated this happening either so I don't blame them but of course the first show of the 70mm that I managed to squeeze myself into last minute had to have audio issues.

Here's to hoping the 70mm is in working condition and just as massive and beautiful as Oppenheimer. Cheers, Denis Villeneuve.

    "Something about you seems different. I can’t quite figure it out."

    It's familiar but different and I don't think it's bad but I'm not sure if I liked it either.

    Halle Bailey is actually quite lovely, although I'm still a bit disappointed that the first "redhead Disney princess" from my childhood wasn't cast as a natural ginger for this adaptation. Her voice is amazing though, miles above everyone else. I did not need a solo from Eric though. Who, in…
