    ★★★★½

    there’s been so many words written about this movie that my review has been sitting, waiting to be written on my bedside table for days.

    ★★★★½

    a couple weeks ago, I walked on a beach. the sky was gray, and the sand was virtually the same color, almost like they completely swirled together and merged as I walked farther and farther. it felt like the ending point of the universe. that feeling of wind against my body, the light splashes of waves, and the dull yet oddly vibrant sky, runs through me when watching this movie. it’s very slow at times, but feels like the only…

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★

    a shot of pure, unadulterated joy. it’s refreshing to see something so committed to being over the top and creative, and the animation really heightens to that frenzied effect. not only are the character designs unique & expressive, and the backgrounds gorgeous, but there’s a ton of on screen effects that add to the visual flare. just like the extra details are meant to simulate an immersive comic book in Spider-Verse, here they capture the feeling of making random videos when…

    ★★★★

    this was just two hours of gloriously over the top camp revolving around of group of dumbasses constantly trying to get in front of the camera and firing off roasts to each other with crazy sets and effects and I AM HERE FOR IT. the story gets a little male gazey but it’s easy to look past it since everyone is a such a dumbass.

    THE OFFICIAL THROMBEY FAMILY SWEATERS RANKING:
    1. Ransom’s (Chris Evans) White Sweater: duh. it’s iconic. simple, yet effective. very snuggable and comfy. need i say more.

    2. Linda’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) Fushia Pink Sweater: truly dazzling. screams wealthy but not in a pretentious way. compliments her round glasses nicely. good, good.

    3. Great Nana’s Multi Layered Sweater: woooo. the underdog. reminds me of christmas in new york during the 1950s. probably smells dusty. very underrated.

    4. Marta’s (Ana De Armas)…
