    Dune: Part Two

    ★★★★★

    I saw Dune: Part Two last night.

    Let me get this out of the way: THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SEQUEL MOVIES I HAVE EVER SEEN!

    I waited a day to review this, because I wanted to formulate my thoughts rather than improvise the review. Because quite frankly, I was speechless leaving the theater.

    This movie is a genuine masterpiece. Even if the first Dune hasn’t aged perfectly for me, to the point that I lowered the rating to…

    Last night’s Oscar ceremony was... actually good? What?

    Yeah, I’m shocked too. Especially after last year’s disaster. Jimmy Kimmel surprisingly did a decent job at hosting with minimal filler and a pretty solid opener, even if there still was some cringe jokes in the ceremony. 

    As for the winners, most of them were fantastic! I’m so happy with most of the wins. Especially most of Everything Everywhere All at Once’s wins, Brendan Fraser’ Actor win, Top Gun winning Sound, honestly…

    I have seen this before... I think. I'll still count it as a first viewing. Sadly, this one is another that I didn't like at all.

    First, positives. The songs are all great, especially Colors of the Wind. And the animation itself is beautiful. The atmosphere is also surprisingly great.

    Otherwise... I hated this! I dislike all of the boring characters, and the character designs are awful. I find it insulting how the movie attempts to "both sides" the issue…

    The best one so far! I'll repeat what I said in a previous review (mostly):

    After rewatching this, words cannot describe how epic and masterful this movie is.

    The opening of the movie is so good it’s impossible to look away. The characters are all phenomenal. The voice acting is among Disney’s absolute best. The animation is stunning. The score by Hans Zimmer is his career-best. The way this film is shot, and edited, and the overall scale of the…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★½

    So I just saw James Gunn's The Suicide Squad (2021).

    I am making that specific distinction of this movie to distinguish it from its predecessor, Suicide Squad (2016). I make said distinction because that 2016 film is a film I cannot stand. I thought the 2016 film had absolute garbage editing, mostly flat and unlikable characters (with two or so exceptions, one of which is reappearing in this movie, interestingly enough), a completely random and forced soundtrack, a terrible script,…

    Well, I have finally witnessed with my own eyes the next film from Denis Villeneuve. That, of course, being Dune, based on the book by Frank Herbert.

    Before I begin, I must stress to those unaware going in: this is an adaptation of only the first half of the book (which I managed to read prior to this), and the film itself is titled “Part 1.” With that out of the way, I need to share my thoughts. 

    I… I…
