What a marvel to watch someone so talented. Joaquin Phoenix might be at his best here, but Woody Norman steals the entire show.
Full of heart and frustration and joy, it’s hard not to feel like I’ve just watched something truly special.
Eternals is dazzling, gorgeously shot, and (in a large departure from the MCU) actually interesting!
This is what I want Marvel to give me, even if it’s not perfect. Give me something ambitious.
The traditional marvel humor is there (unfortunately), but the rest of it mostly really worked for me. I loved seeing actually representative characters and loved seeing this movie try and cover the scope and span it does.
It’s far from perfect, but it is even farther from deserving “worst reviewed MCU”. Iron Man 3 is right there. And Age of Ultron. And Guardians of the Galaxy 2. And so on.
Wes Anderson at his absolute best for me.
Rather unexpectedly, I feel like his style here is notably different from his other work.
It’s as meticulous and detailed as always, but I found myself really enjoying how loose and fluid this was. Everything he does well is here, but there’s also something new here and it’s a lot of fun to see. A dazzling visual display from him and an absolute knockout.
Each story includes just a hint of something unnecessary about halfway through, losing me for only just a moment, but manages every time to come back around into something truly lovely.
I’m not quite sure how Larraín manages to keep pulling this off. It’s a stunningly made portrait and yet another hazy and delirious nightmare, in the best way.
I don’t see a scenario where Kristen Stewart doesn’t walk away with the Oscar for her performance (although I said that about Natalie Portman for Jackie and I was massively let down there).
I do wish it had leaned a bit more into itself, rather than teasing these incredible moments before pulling…
Finally an Avenger with Daddy Issues for the rest of us!
Some of the best visuals and the absolute best fight scenes, wrapped up in some of the weakest plot points and some of the worst jokes. There is no reason to include *that* character in anything again, let alone in this.
