seen a lot of OOMFS dismissing this and praising captain marvel and while i have not seen that yet i cannot believe it has half the visual or metaphorical subtext on transness and womanhood as this.....its beautiful and the dialogue is dumb and alita is fantastic. yall dont know how to have fun (identity crises). besides, even if u just want action, it's got that too bitch! and it's smooth as silk.
if moonwhite made even one passing attempt at saying ‘hey maybe a 24 year old fucking a 17 year old isn’t 100% swoon-worthy material’ it would’ve been an ok film. but instead it just expects you to roll with it and enjoy watching it be played completely straight for 2+ hours.
not sure what to rate this because it’s not a terrible movie, it’s just wildly out of touch + in love with itself. gay people who act like this is what moonlight actually was can’t be trusted.
