    James White

    ★★★½

    The thing about us is, we feel good things way up here, but we feel bad things way, way, way down there.

    The most powerful type of destruction is self-destruction. I can't call James White a great film, but what I can call it is a good example of a good movie. A showcase of how much you can get out of the tiniest plot, lifelike characters, and standard camerawork. For the past couple days, I've been watching Hulu's adaptation…

    ★★

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    Part of the journey is the end.

    It's only been a little over an hour since I saw this, and it's around midnight here, so my thoughts are going to be quick and messy. As I reflect on Avengers: Endgame, above anything else, one single question keeps repeating itself in my mind: How do you top that? I do think I'm definitely partial to the more personal trip that was 2017's Logan. I'm also going back and forth on whether…
