    good movie!

    The more I think about the more I I really *really* like this. It's Marvel's WATCHMEN - similar pace and attempt to subvert, not afraid to take time, to keep stakes lower key despite huge scale... Zhao grounds and humanises it while gloriously revelling in the *awe* of it all. & said scale and awe - literally oh my god..the way everything with the Celestials is executed is worth IMAX price alone - the IMAX 1.43 sequence midway through…

    Yeah I fucking cried, Fukunaga you madman.

    Is it basically Dark Knight Rises, right with all its messiness relative to the previous high bar (in this case CR and SF)? yes. Firmly in the middle of the pack there of the Craig era.

    Hitman's Bodyguard - Ukraine

    Hitman's [Spoiler Alert] Bodyguard - ???

    (honestly getting a kick out of the otherwise totally surface level set dressing but delightfully shameless geopolitical inspirations, executed with timely effect - especially in this film)
