    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    How do you breathe new life into a franchise seven movies deep? By giving the penultimate installment over to Death.

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is bookended by it, opening with Charity Burbage's echo of "Severus, please" and closing with Dobby's utterance of "Harry Potter". Yet no other speaking character dies on screen in the time between those moments; instead of immature attempts at shock by ruthlessly killing characters off, there's only the examination of the losses…

    To begin with, this was possibly the most auspicious theater experience I've ever had. I started my Easter Sunday with an everything bagel (maybe my first everything bagel? I don't know, I don't normally like bagels. This one was fantastic though, shoutout to the Avo and Egg from Zocalo in IV); Vonnie's pants had a water stain that seemed like an attempt to evoke the moment Evelyn pees herself to verse-jump; and as we found out afterwards, Andrew spent the…

    Me and Amir and the Dying Female Pig is a trip after watching Oldboy yesterday. I don't know if I can think of two movies in the same genre (or one with the dressings of the other's genre?) that take it in such different directions. This one is hardly lesser for its choices. The fact that I figured his pig would be dead from the beginning, and the way the movie got a little too heady just barely too fast,…

    I've never wanted so badly for everyone I know to watch a movie and for them to never ever let themselves near the movie at the same time.

    Banger soundtrack though. Wait, no, I mean-

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    Everything Everywhere All at Once shrugs off the bounds imposed by containing a story to one universe, and while it's at it, barely falls short of inventing a new visual component of the filmmaking repertoire; yet even with all the multiversal exuberance on display, the film never strays from the familial relationships that underlie the fantastical conflict. So charged are they with an absurd range of sentiment that they effortlessly carry our investment into every universe we discover.

    My goodness,…

    Episode 6

    That's it, I'm dropping an episode of Hawkeye to 2.5/5. The fallen Christmas tree is such a great symbol for this series' failure as a Christmas show, but that's a topic for another review. As for this episode? Uhhh...

    It's just so painfully clear that the writers were completely disinterested in - or incompetent at - writing anything more than the absolute surface level for any characters besides the two leads. Even then, Kate is just two layers:…
