    Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse

    ★★★★★

    This is getting five stars under the assumption that Part 2 is just as good… because if it is, I’ll consider Across + Beyond to maybe be the best comic book film of all time. They definitely need each other in a way the first film doesn’t, but together they have the potential to surpass Into the Spiderverse. 
    The film was absolutely spectacular.

    - Spectacular Spider-Man showed up! AND he had actual dialogue performed by Josh Keaton. So…

    Evil Dead Rise

    ★★★★

    The more this film sits with me, the more I love it. I keep thinking about moments & scenes that I absolutely need to see again in the theaters.

    ★★

    — a twist that neither makes sense, nor results in anything impactful, exciting, or haunting
    — an unimaginative ending that pulls what little punch it had

    Three Thousand Years of Longing

    ★★★★

    A gorgeous, sweeping, tale of two lonely & guarded people encountering one another by chance - and finding connection in their passion for storytelling, drive for knowledge, and longing to be loved. Getting to experience them take the time to nurture trust in each other, and ultimately choosing to take their two solitudes and turn them into one was so special. And this is all with the visual grandiosity of George Miller’s previous films. 

    This movie isn’t for everyone (which of his films are?), but some of the takes I’ve been reading are ROUGH. I really dug this one!
