    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★★

    “The Terminator films are not really about the human race getting killed off by future machines. They’re about us losing touch with our humanity and becoming machines, which allows us to kill and brutalize each other. Cops think of all non-cops as less than they are, stupid, weak, and evil, they dehumanize the people they are sworn to protect and desensitize themselves in order to do that job.”

    This really is top tier Marvel. The gags are hilarious, the battles have actual stakes and drama, and it looks amazing from start to finish. The Valkyrie sequence in particular is really something else.

    I wish they'd gone a bit harder with the colonialism metaphors but the fact that they included them at all is great. Socially conscious themes in blockbusters! We love to see it!

    The Disaster Artist

    It reminds me of the joke about the man at the carnival whose job it was to clean up the numerous smelly bucketloads of elephant shit. Day in, day out, he works long hours in sweltering heat for pittance, barely enough to get by. On a 40 degree day a passerby sees him knee-deep in the excrement and asks “How can you put up with such demeaning conditions? Haven’t you ever thought about another line of work?”.
