"It's like poetry... It rhymes."

this is one of the best comedies i've seen, probably in my whole life. i could not stop laughing. this is probably the height of anderson's subversion but a way worse action film than retribution. i love how the first half is like an angry reconstruction of miller's mad max and its derivatives (the first half's landscape and aesthetic is a literal reconstruction of fallout 3) but kinda cheap and shitty? props to making sure that milla had a sawed off shotgun with three barrels though!
honestly has the most beautiful moments of the series though, the childhood footage and then the simulacra (alice) becoming the original (alicia). for a series inherently structured in how unoriginal it is, this is an unbelievably brilliant way to end it. it's a shame that it's only so fun and hilarious in between the almost dreadful action set-pieces.
you're fired, wesker.
