    Everyone deserves someone who'll tell them that pursuing their passions makes them more desirable, not less.

    Shadow of the Thin Man


    Definitely an improvement over the prior installment just by virtue of having a lot more energy, a renewed comic sensibility that mostly works (except for all the business with the Charles' maid, who is such a stock character tinged in all the racist stereotypes that were already being spoken out against in 1941, despite Hollywood's blanket refusal to evolve) - it's more fun to see their son at an age where he can participate a bit more, and the film…

    There are still some good one-liners here, but the energy just doesn't feel right - the mystery plot is too dry and convoluted, and the Charles family is perhaps a bit tired out from caring for a new baby, and can't get up to the full antics you really want from a Thin Man production.

    The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

    - Super fun.
    - A smart depiction of queer people in a rural setting.
    - Heartwarming messages about how queer people can be good parents & overcoming internalized homophobia.
    - Cool trans lady character complete with righteous anger.
    - ABBA!

    - Trans woman played by cis man.
    - Weird running joke about deadnaming the trans character.
    - Exhausting racist-as-fuck subplot goes on forever.
    - Too visually distinctive and fun to remake easily, forcing us to sit through the deadnaming and racism because the rest of it is actually good.

    Was not expecting the official Godzilla Twitter account to post a 2-minute short film about stop-motion Godzilla accepting his trans daughter on the last day of Pride Month, but here we are. Godzilla said trans rights!! And I'm crying.
