    "Keep your ear to the ground."

    Blue Velvet is the noir-ification of The Wizard of Oz. I say this not just coz there's literally a key character named Dorothy in both films, but purely for the idea of narrative holes, or narrative portals, in both cases to the unconscious. In Oz, the tornado is the portal. In Blue Velvet, it's the ear. The camera literally travels into the ear on the ground, and only at the end of the movie,โ€ฆ

    We live in a society that allows us to bypass scientific fact and ignore the threat of our own self-destruction for rich people's short-term gain. This is clearly Adam McKay's thesis statement for Don't Look Up, but the movie ironically seems to be doing the exact same thing with its thinly veiled message that made money for the filmmakers, A-list cast and execs involved!

    Before I review, I must get something off my chest. Thereโ€™s almost a whole new generation that are ready to make this Batman their own, even if it means putting down previous ones that meant as much to us as this one does to them. I saw this happen with No Way Home and I have made my peace with the fact that itโ€™s just not my time anymore. People love a movie when itโ€™s brand new; needlessly attacking whatโ€ฆ
