Eternals

Eternals ★★★

Much like Wandavision, the cool stuff was REALLY cool but all the uncool Marvelisms sucked and stunk up the cool stuff. Best looking MCU film by far and I had a good time with it, but it’s pretty hollow despite its attempts to feel intimate and deep. Though I will say.. While I understand performative activism on part of mega corporations feels really gross, and a lot of the diversity in this film does feel highly calculated for maximum social clout, it is still pretty special to see this cast on screen in a major action movie and would have felt like a fantasy even 10 years ago to have this cast/characters and director on a movie of this level. Progress?
