    I previously said Ghostbusters: Afterlife was my Dad’s Endgame. I lied… this is it

    Honestly incredible. Improves on basically every aspect of the original. Will be rewatching very soon

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

    EPISODES 1 & 2:

    *MILD SPOILERS* 

    Huge props to Deborah Chow for nailing down a tone and having the show already in stride. I’m loving her direction style so far. McGregor didn’t need to prove he could carry the show but he has anyways. The situation driving the plot surrounds a character that wasn’t even on my radar coming into the show. I love the dynamic between her and Obi-Wan tho. All the little interactions and lines adding depth to A…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★★

    Multiverse of Madness is tonally unbalanced and not perfect by any means, trying to cram a lot into its runtime.

    HOWEVER, you simply cannot deny how hard this movie unapologetically goes for it. 

    Feige, Raimi and Waldron deliver some of the craziest moments we’ve ever seen in the MCU. Including one that made me scream maybe a bit too loud (sorry Peyton) 

    The majority of it worked for me, though some story issues can’t be ignored. I did absolutely eat up the filmmaking style. The wild camera angles, editing and of course Elfman’s score were fantastic.

    I’m closing, Wanda can tuck me into bed ahaha 😏

    ★★★★★

    To-do list:

    1. Look for the best in every moment of every day 
    2. Call my Dad and tell him I love him 
    3. Find a cure to loneliness 
    4. Maybe start going to therapy instead of watching this movie over and over
