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

    look I am WEAK for the Spiders-Men being friends with themselves, and my twenty-year-old crush on Molina’s Doc Ock is feeling proper fueled by that redemption arc

    God I think there’s an alternate universe where I loved this film, but I just felt like I had to meet it more than halfway, if that makes sense. Completely baffled by Phil’s change of heart, and I guess I’m just tired of the abusive closeted gay man trope. Which I’m sure was progressive when Thomas Savage wrote it in 1967, but feels staid now.

    I’m a big Kodi Smit-McPhee fan from Slow West so it was lovely seeing him…

    Like if you see a door labeled “It’s Just Literally Cats: The Broadway Musical,” and you go through that door and are disappointed to find out that It’s Just Literally Cats: The Broadway Musical, that’s on you buddy

    Really enjoyed sinking into the warm bath that was this movie!! Sometimes I want a plot, sometimes I don’t, and this was a fantastic entry in the latter category. Absolutely striking costumes and set pieces, and Dev is such a joy to watch and watch act. An effortless tentpole of an actor to hang your movie on.

    I am disappointed that in choosing not to more clearly define and follow through on the Lord’s pact with Gawain in the third…
