    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★

    I came out the theater with mixed thoughts and the more I think about this movie, the less I'm able to get on board with it. There were things about it that I loved (most notably the fight with Doctor Strange), but the plot is contrived beyond belief, with nonsensical character decisions and plot machinations being little more than excuses to justify the fan service. And while I expected the film to be baity as hell, I didn't think the…

    Cute & harmless but almost entirely forgettable. Lots of the criticism I’m seeing on here is in bad faith though. 

    It’s also a lot prettier than I imagined it to be. There are some really imposing shots in this; I thought the black and white gimmick was going to be just that but it’s so rich in texture & nicely framed, I was entirely on-board with the creative choice.

    Anything you want. Anything you dream of, you can have it.

    There’s something very forlorn about the beginning of Wonder Woman 1984. From that first fight scene in the mall, the sequel to 2017’s franchise installment really does feel like it’s stuck in the past—not because of any Stranger Things-style nostalgia porn we’ve become accustomed to (though there are wigs and tracksuits aplenty), but because of the campy quality present in everything from the camera language to the extras’ performances.…

    A beautiful portrait of unrequited love and one of the better rom-coms I’ve seen in a while. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is irresistible in this even if his character is kind of a dick. Zooey Deschanel is as charming as ever and reminded me of her older sister at times. Someone had already spoiled the ending for me, but my heart was shredded nonetheless.
