a great technical achievement for an entertainment movie, but i don't think james cameron and i are a good match. the components that made me fall in love with the first movie so much (the artistry and horror) are lacking here (this is the exact same reason why i didn't love terminator 2 as much as the others), instead they added fuckloads of military. ripley was badass but i dunno. might have to rewatch.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
some loose thoughts:
- as a movie, it's really messy. characters except for maybe iron man and captain america are all inconsistent and Endgame basically treats as if those characters did not have their own solo movies (especially Thor Ragnarok. the russos probably have not seen that movie). they're also trying to act as if BTTF doesn't make sense and what they say makes sense but the whole concept of time travel in this movie is bullshit.
- black widow…
