    Blue Velvet

    ★★★★★

    The scariest movie not labeled horror. Intensely uncomfortable, because it confronts the viewer with truths about the debauchery, depravity, and evil of man, and the lie of suburban perfection.
    Fearless performances from Rossellini and Hopper. The slightly off-kilter vibe MacLachlan gives off here is perfect. Brilliant meld of Lynchian surrealism and traditional narrative, the best mixture of 50s iconography and sadistic modernism. This is Lynch’s masterpiece.

    Deathstalker II

    ★★½

    It’s has ridiculously low production values, it’s goofy, and extremely stupid. However, due to the ridiculous, sarcastic performance of the lead, it almost works as a proto-Army of Darkness. Key word being almost. Even at 85 minutes it still feels overlong.

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★

    Messy af, but super satisfying in the best way possible, and much much better than Infinity War imo.
    Not every bit works, some of the comedy is godawful, but when it flies, it soars.
