    Quick shoutout to one of my fave film moments in recent memory: When Colson gets in his car outside the Iceberg Lounge, the combination of cold weather and the Riddler's body heat resulted in condensation on the windows which Colson has to wipe from his windshield in order to see through. Now that's what I call attention to detail!!


    There are countless reasons why I returned to see this again two days after my first rendezvous with the Bat and…

    If you can’t decide whether to watch The Crown or Mamma Mia!, do I have the movie for you!

    Congrats to JJ for making a movie so lacking in pacing, earned emotional beats, true character development, consequence of action, and actual obstacles for our growing team of protagonists that I lost all hope of a decent movie one minute in. 

    I was exhausted watching this. I was so angry. Every three minutes we are either introduced to new characters, new worlds, or both, and the once very complex and solid group of protags is forced into less development, stupid…

    The casting director for the supporting characters was either a genius or out their gdamn mind I can’t decide
