The Unbearable Weight of Massive Nic Cage

First half of the film is fuckin class, it goes the wrong direction in the second half and runs out of steam a bit (although the meta-narrative does call it as it goes along). Cage and Pascal are both fuckin legends, naturally.

Dr Strange 2. Enjoyable movie even if it’s not exactly groundbreaking cinema. Some good Raimi jump scares mixed in with all the usual Marvel nonsense, and a dash of stunt casting. Contains an excellent musical cue-influenced fight scene, and one particular cameo that might be a little too ON THE NOSE if you know what I mean. Yeah worth a watch in the cinema I think.

Last week I saw that Dr. Strange film - it wasn't awful, actually some of the 'evil' stuff was pretty cool, guess that's the Sam Raimi. It's not very good though, just distinctly average film, not much better than most Marvel gak.

The day after that I went to see Everything Everywhere All At Once and it's FUCKIN AMAAAAZZZIIIINNNGGGGGG and blows Dr. Strange out of the water in absolutely every way. It's one of the best films EVEEERRRRRR

rosemary's baby. excellent stuff. really solid build up - really lulls you into it. you almost forget your watching a horror. truly expert film making imo. however, i didn't think the ending was as strong. hard to complain though, top marks. people in ireland in 1966 must have been losing their minds when this came out
