    "You cannot negotiate with gravity."

    Officially solidified as one of my all time favorite movies with this second viewing. Hopefully I can explain why. (minor spoilers ahead)

    A hellish, inescapable world of shadows and deceit briefly unraveled by an explosion of pure, erotic, emotional honesty. Two eternal brothers brimming with passion locked in the heart of a prison of cold indifference. A kaleidoscope of digitally captured, ecstasy filled anti-reality, where everything hurts far more than it should and there is…

    ★★★★★

    “I believe in America.”

    Succession. The death of the old world in the face of the new despite how much it is fought to be preserved. Age or early death will take us all, and our legacy is decided by who and what we leave behind. Vito Corleone, who is unable to adapt to the new way of life, dies in front of his child grandson. Michael Corleone becomes his father but worse despite his best intentions. He disregards his…

    “You can live wherever you want to live, be whoever you want to be. You have time”

    Cried when the end credits hit. Sat and thought about it. Cried some more. 

    A series of moments and vignettes that change and grow in awareness and understanding with each subtle minute ticking away on the clock, until we are left with the perspective and hindsight of an adult attempting to find what was lost along the way. Calum is just a young dad…

    “Sayonara Yoshito.”

    Saw this when I was like 13 and remember nothing other than the fairies but I must have liked it enough to convince dad to put it on our Netflix DVD queue a second time because here we are. 

    Essentially nothing here that Against doesn’t do much cooler and better, but it’s still fun. The human characters in Against are genuinely great and calling these replacements flat is generous. The action is cool I just wish it started sooner. Still…

    Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train

    ★★★★½

    I don’t think any movie in history, Star Wars included, has given me that many chills for the entire freaking runtime I’m so happy I freaking love demon slayer and I’m loving standing in the lobby rn hearing all these people talk about how much they loved it I love movie theaters I love everything.

    Three Thousand Years of Longing

    ★★★★½

    “How can it be a mistake to love someone entirely?”

    This definitely won’t be for everyone, and for a good chunk of it I thought it wasn’t for me. But by the end I was crying and didn’t want it to end so I guess I got converted along the way. 

    The first thing I noticed is how much quieter it is than I was expecting. The trailer was filled with such bombastic, maximalist sensibilities and while those are somewhat…
