    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "I see this spark in you. It's amazing. Whatever you choose to do with it, you'll be great."

    My second viewing of Into the Spider-Verse saw the blooming of a connection with Miles' journey, but it wasn't until the third trip to the theatre (something I never usually do) that, much like the visuals themselves, this attachment exploded into a bukkake of personal enlightenment.

    Hear me out.

    It all came to me in the film's final act. Four key players…

    "I don't think people are meant to be by themselves. That's why if you actually find someone you care about, It's important to let go of the little things. Even if you can't let go all the way. Because nothing sucks more then feeling all alone, no matter how many people are around." - JD, Scrubs

    I've always felt lonely.

    To varying degrees of course - the presence of family and friends have certainly lessened the impact some days, but…

    Police Story

    ★★★★½

    Fuses slapstick comedy and dazzling action setpieces through the sheer charisma of Jackie Chan: an action star that captivates audiences through his unbridled dedication for the job. Therefore it's only fitting that the actor/director/legendary martial artist plays police officer Chan Ka Kui, who is also exceptional at his job and who also pushes himself to the physical limit in order to achieve success. Police Story is badass from beginning to end, and is so tightly paced that every scene flies…

    ★★★★★

    "all at once everything is different, now that I see you"

    part broadway epic (Donna Murphy sings like no other), part romantic tour de force (Rapunzel and Eugene's chemistry is divine) and part animated spectacle (the lantern sequence is a work of art), Tangled effortlessly soars from beginning to end, aided by a pure heart and irresistible ball of energy in the form of a watchful horse and charming chameleon. frankly, it was only a matter of time until I…

    "Sometimes I think I'm destined to care so much about one person it nearly kills me."

    A quick and albeit unnecessary caveat; I'm gay. I came out to my close friends in 2015 and my family a year later. Both were in less than ideal conditions (which allowed this quote to truly hit hard). I've become much more accepting of myself since then, but I still have some changes to make. (including but not limited to my terrible wardrobe)

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★½

    Holy shit.

    Into the Spider-Verse bursts through with tremendous exuberance, utilising the medium like no other superhero film I've seen - a bolstering desire to invigorate audiences through its psychedelic and orgasmic visuals, reminding those skeptical (such as my dad) that this is no mere 'cartoon', but rather an immeasurable ode to the conception of these crime fighting sensations that have dominated pop culture for a decade. And in that decade, we have seen an unforseen flurry of features -…
