    Me to me: You've seen this 8 times, you're not going to cry.

    Also me: *sees Wanda and Vision appear on screen for the first time* *blubbers immediately*

  • Eighth Grade

    Eighth Grade

    ★★★★½

    Been meaning to watch this for a while. I've never related so hard. Perfectly captures the excruciating minutiae of social anxiety and finds the sweet spot between laugh out loud comedy and heart-wrenching, endearing, nostalgic coming-of-age. Also, sick score.

    ★★★★½

    "Some people move on. But not us."

    Therein lies the backbone and my biggest bone to pick with this movie.

    Surely, the lesson we’re supposed to learn as an audience is to move on from the MCU as we once knew it - the Original Six Avengers. Yet, how can we let them go if they cannot let anything go themselves?

    ★★★★½

    "Oh, we're using our made up names. Then, I am Spider-Man."

    I’m sorry Thanos, I know you demanded our silence but I’ve already seen Avengers: Infinity War again and I NEED to discuss spoilers. You’ve been warned. If you’re still reading this and you’ve not seen the movie, evidently you don’t care. So, shall we begin?

    This time, I cried harder and more frequently. It’s knowing what’s to come and it happens to me every time I re-watch something close…
