this is like the most beautiful scene in the movie

DUNKIRK (2017)
  • I just saw Dunkirk in 70mm and IMAX and
  • It was the single most amazing cinematic experience of my life
  • As you may have heard, there was very little dialogue throughout the movie which can make a film feel slow or even boring at times, but I was completely captivated
  • But never did I feel that the screen was bogged down with too many lengthy series of quick cuts
  • The angles used in the air were incredible and I’m sure not easily chosen
  • The use of silence in the film was fantastic and their timing impeccable; it was loud and quiet at the same time
  • HANS ZIMMER
  • His score was just too good, as usual (especially the bit where they’re trying to reach the boat in time)
  • Lee Smith is an editorial god
  • Christopher Nolan and the two mentioned above are literally the dream team
  • Can’t believe he wrote that cause, like, it’s easy to imagine something but to write it down in a concise way that doesn’t involve two characters just talking is really difficult let alone in a warzone
  • I commend their use of mostly practical effects and real props
  • There’s a point where it’s night and there’s a bunch of people in a lifeboat with flashlights (or maybe it was fire in the background, I can’t remember) while a guy shivers on the deck of a ship and it reminded me of Titanic
  • Real stories are eerily impressionable, at least in my mind
  • The depiction of what I would call the main characters was very well done
  • Taking fictional characters with a fictional story and having them seamlessly blend into the story of the movie, the story of the Battle of Dunkirk… Well done
  • It’s easy to believe that, despite being created, it may have been someone’s real story, something experienced by a real soldier on that beach
  • The events of the film are harrowing
  • So much emotion delivered in just 147min
  • Tom Hardy’s plane
  • His sacrifice and the way the men cheered for him
  • How they made us think that his landing gear wasn’t going to come out, but it did with the most beautiful colours (great colour scheme all around) of the sun lending its light for his landing down on the beach
  • How his plane became engulfed in flames, burning ablaze on the beach before he stepped into the Germans’ arms
  • It was the first time we see his face
  • But never once do we see the enemy’s face
  • It’s not about the enemy, it was never about winning anything
  • It was about survival and making it home to fight another day and in that itself is a victory
  • This story belongs to the British and although I myself am not a Brit, I have always been fascinated by this particular event in the war
  • (Sidenote: Go watch Atonement or YouTube it’s glorious 5-minute long single shot on the beach at Dunkirk)
  • My mind was basically blown when I discovered this one thing
  • Throughout the film, there’s this theme of “home” and getting there
  • Several civilian fishing boats travel across the channel in hopes of delivering soldiers back to England and like I mentioned, I saw the movie in 70mm
  • ((THANK YOU JESUS for allowing Christopher Nolan and Hoyte van Hoyte to bless us with these beautiful images))
  • At least, most of it was in 70mm
  • I immediately noticed that from time to time it would switch from full screen  70mm to widescreen 35mm. I assumed they were using a different camera for these shots/scenes, but I couldn’t figure out why
  • Then, in the car after the movie it hit me: All of the widescreen shots were of England, of home. You see, the civilian ships coming to rescue them were referred to and represented home so all the shots on the little boat were in done in 35mm as well as the ones at the end of the movie on the train and such
  • The reading of the newspaper was a nice touch made beautiful in a perfect movie
  • THAT ENDING
  • The boys on the train
  • The boy on the boat…
  • I could go on—but instead—
  • just do yourself a favour and go see it for yourself
The signs as popular 80′s songs...

Aries: Sweet Child O’ Mine by Guns N’ Roses (1987) - She’s got a smile that it seems to me, reminds me of childhood memories.

Taurus: Jessie’s Girl by Rick Springfield (1981) - But lately something’s changed, it ain’t hard to define. Jessie’s got himself a girl and I want to make her mine.

Gemini: Billie Jean by Michael Jackson (1982) - She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene. I said don’t mind, but what do you mean I am the one?

Cancer: Everybody Wants to Rule the World by Tears for Fears (1985) - Help me make the most, of freedom and of pleasure. Nothing ever lasts forever.

Leo: She Drives Me Crazy by the Fine Young Cannibals (1989) - She drives me crazy like no one else. She drive me crazy, and I can’t help myself.

Virgo: Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper (1984) - If you’re lost you can look and you will find me, time after time.

Libra: Don’t You Forget About Me by Simple Minds (1985) - Don’t you forget about me, I’ll be alone, dancing you know it baby.

Scorpio: Tainted Love by Soft Cell (1981) - Don’t touch me, please, I cannot stand the way you tease. I love you though you hurt me so.

Sagittarius: You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC (1980) - Working double time, on the seduction line. She was one of a kind, she’s just mine, all mine.

Capricorn: Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics (1983) - I travel the world and the seven seas, everybody’s looking for something.

Aquarius: Jack and Diane by John Mellencamp (1982) - Oh yeah, life goes on, long after the thrill of livin’ is gone.

Pisces: With or Without You by U2 (1987) - Through the storm we reach the shore, you gave it all but I want more.

Also, in Dragon Cry, I just love the parallel from the beginning and to the end with Natsu and Lucy.

“What do I look like to you?”

“Like Natsu.”

Natsu, whether the beginning was a silly scene or not, is concerned with how Lucy views him.  More so at the end of the movie after he dragonizes, but that’s just impactful to me.  Before he passes out, he knows how frightening he must have looked (I mean he was HALF freaking dragon), he’s afraid that Lucy would view him differently, and like the beginning, he wanted to make sure that she still saw him as the Natsu she knows and loves.  I think it’s just very touching and beautiful and it was one of my most favorite things about the movie.

MARY POPPINS RETURNS

The audience at D23 were shown an exclusive clip from Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel to the 1964 classic musical!☔️
The story follows Michael (Ben Whishaw) & Jane Banks (Emily Mortimer) who are now grown up, and Michael is living with his three children and their housekeeper, Ellen (Julie Walters) on Cherry Tree Lane. After Michael suffers a personal loss, the enigmatic nanny Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) re-enters the lives of the Banks family, and long with the optimistic street lamplighter, Jack (Lin Manuel Miranda), uses her unique magical skills to help the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives. Mary Poppins also introduces the children to a new assortment of colorful and whimsical characters, including her eccentric cousin, Topsy (Streep). And, as mentioned before, Dick Van Dyke will play a role in the film as Mr. Dawes Jr., the chairman of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank, which is now run by William Weatherall Wilkins (Colin Firth).☔️
All we know of the scene showed at the panel was that it involved Dick Van Dyke dancing on a table! We didn’t get that scene but at least we got this beautiful video poster starring Emily as Mary!☔️
Mary Poppins Returns hits theatres Christmas 2018.☔️

“I think as a kid, I found that a magical mysterious person whisking into their lives and making everything right again was really comforting as a child … so I always found the film incredibly magical and wanted to be the Banks children! I need to pay homage to what Julie did but carve our space for myself. No one is going to out julie julie andrews. we were very loyal to the books.” - Emily Blunt

i remember when the wonder woman trailer came out and it just showed a glimpse of her climbing that ladder, you know The One, anyways like it just had this feeling that it was leading up to something important and then when watching the movie and the no mans land scene happened and right when she gets on the field theres a slow mo explosion behind her and its not the typical “cool guy walks away from explosion” moment, instead shes walking into a hail of bullets and its the most fucking next level bad ass shit i’ve ever fucking witnessed with my own two eyes like holy shit what a Game Changer what a way to demolish that trope and create something beautiful 

Guys Evermore has me so shook like

  • It comes at the PERFECT time for the beast. He’s hesitant with his emotions but when Belle leaves all that reluctance goes out the window too, and he just….. pours his heart out
    • fuck what kind of good ass character development nothing will ever top this 
  • “I know she’ll never leave me, even as she runs away. She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me, move me, come what may”
    • this line particularly gets me like…. the beast knows that no matter what, even if she chooses to never return, belle will always be with him, tormenting his memories of what could have been
    • but she also calms him, inspires him, brings him strength…. this is true love right here, the epitome of disney romance. fuck me up
  • And then
  • “Wasting in my lonely tower, waiting by an open door. I’ll fool myself she’ll walk right in, and be with me for evermore.”
    • The beast doesnt even think for ONE SECOND that Belle will actually come back to him… he hopes but he knows with all of his heart that he’s lying to himself
    • AND YET!! HE WILL WAIT FOREVER WITH AN OPEN DOOR (AND AN OPEN HEART!!)
      • good god man thats so fucking sad SHE LOVES YOU!! SHUT UP!!! SHE IS IN LOVE WITH YOU SHE JUST HAD TO SAVE HER PAPA SHE WILL BE BACK!!!!! !! !!!!!
      • SRSLY SHE LOVES YOU !!!!!!!
  • And in this song like… it’s not just Belle he’s losing to those “long long nights”, it’s the rest of his friends, his family, because they’re going to die and leave him completely alone, forever, without anyone to love
  • Which like?? fuck???
  • And even THAT fate wouldn’t have hurt so much before as it would now, because now he actually REMEMBERS how to love, and just as soon as he learns to again it’s torn away from him for all eternity
  • And the beast has no anger towards belle?? the most agressive he gets is when he sings “I let her steal into my melancholy heart” and even there it sounds more like he’s angry at himself than angry at belle
    • he’s sad as fuck but never angry which, again,,, look at that fucking character development
  • also idk if it’s just me but i DEFINITELY think the beast sounds the most open, prince-like, and HUMAN in this track than the rest of the film
  • anyway i’ve listened to this 87 times and see no end in sight
Bangtan & Omelas

I keep getting questions asking how the Omelas story ties in with the Spring Day music video. This is how I’ll interpret it.

We all should know about the short story, “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas.” If you don’t, let me quickly summarize.
There’s a town by the sea called Omelas. This town is seen as perfect with their perfect and happy people, but it’s really not. There’s a young child who had been sacrificed in order for these people to be happy. The young child cannot be fed nor spoken to. The townspeople of Omelas can go see the young child, but most who do end up walking away in disgust after finding out what evil lies in their beautiful town. Keep in mind those who walk away never free the child either, so they’re just as evil for knowing and not doing anything.

In Spring Day, it focuses around Bangtan reminiscing about the past and wanting to see each other. The scenes that stood out to me were these:

Jimin finds washed up shoes on the shoreline. From my knowledge of Hollywood movies and books, shoes by themselves means someone left them there. This person is more than likely gone and not coming back (possibly death).
Right away I viewed this as a metaphor for the young child of Omelas, youth, that was left behind and forgotten.

Then near the end when the boys finally arrive to their destination, they walk towards a tree. For those who don’t know, a tree is symbolism of life. You have the roots that dig deep, the trunk that establishes a foundation, the branches that reach out for sustenance, leaves that are floating through the wind for healing, and so on. The tree of life.
When they arrive to this tree, Jimin hangs the shoes he found on the shorelines on a branch.
Shoe tossing holds meaning of those who have died, we’re left behind. “The reason they are hanging, legend has it, is that when the dead person’s spirit returns, it will walk that high above the ground, that much closer to heaven.”

In my opinion, Bangtan hanging the unknown shoes is like them going back to Omelas and setting the young child free. In a metaphorical way, Bangtan is doing what they always do: speaking and protecting youth. Since they debuted, the message they always wanted to get across with their music is to protect our generation of people. Majority of older people will say our voices don’t matter, but they’ve always been against that. We are all human and we should all let our voices be heard.

DATING!KIM JONGHYUN

So basically dating this one-of-a-kind wartortle would include:

  • well you’re one of the luckiest people alive cause you got yourself a PERFECT boyfriend
  • such boyfriend material, I can’t even
  • he would be so sweet and caring towards you 
  • and he would basically do anything for you and i mean ANYTHING 
  • like you could kill someone and he would keep his mouth shut and help you get rid of the body 
  • because he loves you the most and he wants you to be happy 
  • would spoil you and show you so much affection when you two are alone
  • is literally as lost as a puppy without his owner when you are not around 
  • although when you’re out he isn’t much of a PDA fan, but would always have you close to him, hold your hand while playing with your fingers
  • he would comment about how beautiful you are quite often and how well you match together and just lots of cheesy things 
  • “do you see how perfect your hand fits in mine?” 
  • “you look really beautiful today”
  • would like calling you pet names; the obvious: “baby”, “love”, “sweetheart” 
  • and since he’s wartortle, he would probably call you his “jigglypuff” cause it’s just as cute as you are
  • does aegyo for you when you’re sad or angry cause he knows your like it 
  • since he likes playing video games so much he would always ask you to play with him 
  • and if you weren’t into it he would offer to teach you 
  • also you guys would watch so much anime and read so many mangas 
  • that by the end of the year you would have a growing collection and no space to put new books  
  • your dates would be really chill, like going to the movies or the park 
  • he would always want to pay for everything and wouldn’t accept “no” as an answer 
  • on special occasions though he would take you out on a fancy dinner 
  • like you’d come home from classes or work and find a note on your bed which says 
  • “hey beautiful, sorry I couldn’t make it to lunch today. I’m picking you up at 8, wear something nice. I love you the most”
  • although he pings me as someone who would be quite uncomfortable going to fancy parties, I think he would only enjoy them if you were with him 
  • like company dinners for example, would be so boring without you; but once you’re there he would have this huge smile plastered on his face
  • “wanna get out of here?” 
  • and you agree so you follow him to the rooftop 
  • and it would be like a scene out of a movie; just you two standing on the cold pavement and he gives you his jacket cause it would be windy 
  • and you end up talking about the two of you and your secrets, your insecurities, future, past, present and every subject there is 
  • “i wish you’d be mine forever, i’m never going to let you go”
  • “i can’t believe you’re so perfect. how did i even manage to make you fall in love with me?”
  • “you know I love you so much, Y/N. I would literally fight the whole world for you”
  • “just stay with me forever and I don’t need anything else”
  • he would always make sure you ate, sleep well and take care of yourself so he would constantly check up on you even if he is busy practicing 
  • and the problem with onibugi is that he cares so much about the others that he forgets about himself 
  • so you have to remind him to take care of him too since you don’t want him to get sick or hurt himself from training too hard
  • he isn’t one to speak about his concerns often, but you can always tell if something is bothering him 
  • he would still deny it though and you have to assure him that everything is gonna be ok and you believe in him and you’re so proud of him 
  • cause I think besides the whole “nation’s leader” image he has pretty low self-esteem and needs constant reassurance from you that he’s doing well
  • always hugs you when you sleep together 
  • and sometimes it would be really hot and you would move away from him 
  • but 5 seconds later he is scooting closer and cuddling you again  
  • *WARTORTLE IS EVOLVING NOW, PLEASE SCROLL BACK UP IF YOU UNDERAGE*
  • he pings me at someone who would be into creating an atmosphere rather than just having sex cause he is horny
  • he has medium leaning towards high stamina 
  • now this man right here… this man makes love; he does not have sex or fuck; Kim Jonghyun makes love to you
  • and he doesn’t make love only to your body; he also does it to your soul and mind 
  • personally I believe sex would be mind-blowing and not because he is a god in bed (which is 50% why) but he takes so much care with his actions and cherishes every part of your body and takes his time with everything
  • just telling you how much he loves your arms, abdoment, eyes, mouth, legs, everything 
  • and if you were to be insecure because let’s say you got stretch marks on your body or some other minor faults he would be the sweetest guy 
  • “baby, I don’t care, you’re so beautiful with and without them” 
  • “you don’t have to worry, you’re perfect, you’re amazing, you’re my love” 
  • always making sure you get to come and are pleasured 
  • he would be more of a giver than receiver in terms of oral; he wants you to feel good and doesn’t care much about himself 
  • quite vocal; would like calling your name a lot, a soft moaner with deep grunts and lots of: 
  • “fuck, babe”
  • “oh my god this feels amazing”
  • “you’re so perfect, don’t stop baby” 
  • I also think he’d be into lazy, morning sex 
  • like you just woke up and you’re cuddling while kissing each other
  • and then one of his hands travel lower towards your hips and when you don’t stop him his fingers go straight to your core and start massaging it 
  • and then all of your clothes are on the floor as he is thrusting slowly, lazily
  • he would enjoy hearing your soft moans as he kisses your neck 
  • would LOVE for you to ride him as he gets to look at you and play with your chest and have his fingers on your hips or ass 
  • he’s a switch and doesn’t ping me as someone who would be overly dominant 
  • his dominant side will only show if he is jealous or if you are trying to make him jealous on purpose 
  • then, good luck to you cause you’re gonna be sore the whole week 
  • he would take whenever and wherever as he groans “you’re mine and only mine” in your ear
  • he would like it for you to be in charged, I think he secretly enjoys it so much 
  • like if you were to straddle him and take control 
  • “you’re not allowed to touch me, jonghyun. now be a good boy”
  • he would bite his lips visibly horny and it would take so much force for him not to touch you 
  • while you kiss every inch of his body and ride him slowly, teasingly 
  • until he is so desperate that he is begging for you to let him touch you 
  • and when you do, he flips you over and stares at you with dark eyes 
  • “i’ve been waiting so long for this, baby” 
  • quite vanilla though; I think he wouldn’t be very open to trying rough bdsm or anything that may possibly harm you because he cares too much about you 
  • as for his kinks, I don’t know why but I think he would really like food play, shower sex (SO MUCH, SO HOT), blindfolds, lace, dry humping
  • he would like seeing you in pretty lingerie, that would make him want to treat you like a princess 
  • says “I love you” a lot when you are doing it and always when you are done

You knew that fate had its own ways to bring you to the one you belonged to, but you never thought that switching souls and bodies was actually one of them.

My 2017 trip to South Korea

Hello! I went to South Korea from Dec 29-Jan 6 about a week or so! I was so nervous to go even though I’ve seen positive experiences with Black women going, I was still nervous about visiting.

But I won’t talk much but just say my experience was beyond my expectations! I met too many cool people who were genuinely curious about Black people, like how do you do your hair like that? (I had curly/ long natural hair style). How do you stay so fit? How did you learn Korean? How do you say this or that in English? Your lips are so pretty, women would stare at my lips and say how they wish they had lips like mine. People would at times ask to take pictures with us, I was with 2 White girls and 1 Black girl and they were asking my White friends to take the pictures for them, We’re still laughing about that. But it didn’t bother her, she thought it was so nice that they were all over us and giving us a lot of love out of kindness. I had some even tell me they wish they had gorgeous glowing skin like mine instead of being pale, I was so shocked because most of the Korean beauty standards is to have pale skin.

Now I know you all probably wondering about the men right? I was curious about the clubbing scene so we did visit some clubs! Girl when I tell you when we walked up in there me and my other BFF whose Black (the other girls didn’t want to go). It was like in slow motion! Like the movies, a lottttt of staring at us mostly from the men, some of them are so bold! And the other half just stare wanting to come up and talk to us, but they be thirsty too! Some just want to like kiss and dance and some really want you to be his wife, for real! I’ve gotten numbers and I was curious to ask if they wish they had more Black people in Korea and their eyes would get so wide and they would say yes yes yes! Or ask me to move here please so we can hang out aww.

It was a quick trip but I’m hoping we can go back again this year. That’s how much fun we had! If anyone here is planning on going, do it! You’d enjoy it. It’s even prettier in the Spring/Summer time though especially with the food vendors. That’s what I want to do next time.

So I’ve just watched Descendants 2 and noticed that almost every ship in the fandom has a moment in the movie, letting aside the canon couples, the most obvious ones to me were the homosexual ships subtext moments, Mal and Evie had a beautiful duet, the scene next to said duet was of Jay and Carlos waking up side by side when the 3D printer finished the fake wand, Ben and Carlos had their moments during the songs Chillin like a villain “you need to not stare”, and bowing at each other in You and Me, Chad sneaking into Carlos/Jay room, etc. I if I list all the moments I’ll end tomorrow, the thing is is that now I’m 99,9% sure that it was totally on purpose, even in the first movie and all I got to say is: keep it going Disney, keep on feeding my shipping soul, it is actually working :D

It’s not your regular girl-and-boy-swap-bodies-and-hilarity-ensues movie. No. This is something above and far apart from anything you will ever watch.

It shows a simple connection between two people that transcends time and leaps over even the most adverse obstacles like Death. 

The animation and the blend of nature/city scenes are heartrendingly gorgeous. The plot and the building of the story will blow you away. 

The characters are so simple and relatable, yet each one has something special that they leave behind with you at the end of the journey. 

Don’t miss this one. Trust me. It’s worth it.

all i’m gonna say about call me by your name is that the scene where elio’s dad has a whole speech about how he loves and accepts his son was one of the most beautiful/affirming things I’ve ever seen & I think the movie is very fundamentally kind in how it treats its young bi protagonist’s feelings and growth. the author of the original book has said that the book is based on his own experiences as a teen falling in love with a dude, so like he didn’t make elio 17 because he wanted to sexualise teens (the whole story is 100% from elio’s perspective so he can’t really……sexualise himself). it was just a reflection of his personal experience. 

not every piece of gay media has to be a perfect representation of every gay person’s experience - we certainly don’t hold straight ppl to that standard. but this one was a reflection of his own experience! and that’s okay!!! it’s also completely ok to feel triggered/uncomfortable with the age gap and to not support the movie but I think ppl should be more careful about calling a guy disgusting and predatory for depicting the love he felt for another man. especially a man he met in a time and place where it was near impossible to find someone like you (the book places a lot of emphasis on them connecting over their sexuality & jewish identity in italy in the 80s)

Alien: Covenant (2017)
Movie Review by: Will Whalen

In space, no one can hear you scream… but at the movie theaters they sure can! The long awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, is finally here. A lot of people seemed to be on the fence with Prometheus when it came out for many various reasons. I myself, loved it as soon as I saw it. Fortunately, I didn’t even know it was apart of the Alien franchise until the very last scene which added more to it for me once it was over. So of course I’ve been looking forward to this not only because it looked just incredible, but because just like everyone else, I was hoping to get some answers that we didn’t get in Prometheus.

Alien: Covenant stars Katherine Waterson, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Michael Fassbender and… Michael Fassbender? That’s right. Double the Fassy boy. This is about a crew and a ton of colonists going to find a planet for them to live on. Of course, when they find one, things don’t go as planned.

Ridley Scott made the first Alien a little over 40 years ago and ever since then, the franchise has been pumping out films every few years or so. The fact that Scott himself is still toying with a franchise he created so many years ago, is really cool. With Prometheus, he took it in a different route than previous films. A horror sci-fi nonetheless but this time, exploring religion and the big questions of life. Which sparked controversy with film nerds all across the internet and even controversy throughout the kids in my school. Here, Scott definitely goes back to the horror routes in every sense of the word.

Ridley Scott is one of the best directors of all time and every time he puts something out, I’m always excited and on board. He’s notorious for directing the shit out of his movies and crafting some of the most beautiful shots that have ever blessed a screen. Alien: Covenant is absolutely jaw dropping with beautiful and majestic shots throughout the two hour runtime. He crafted one of the most gorgeous films I’ve seen all year with help with his talented Cinematographer, Dariusz Wolski who was the cinematographer for Prometheus as well. The way he filmed some of these scenes was absolutely phenomenal. It’s guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat and make you feel like your life is at stake.
Another thing that I really appreciate about Scott is that he really tries to use as little CGI as possible. Is there still CGI? Of course but he tries to keep it practical from what I hear and can tell and that’s a rare thing these days.

The performances here were all fantastic. One of my top favorite actors, Michael Fassbender, absolutely killed it. He plays two roles in this as Walter and David and he was just fantastic. Katherine Waterson was also good alongside Danny McBride who actually surprised me a little bit. It was cool to see him in a more serious role. The only problem with the characters is that they kinda jump between characters a bit much so it never fully latches on to one in particular. Nonetheless, all the performances were good but the one performance that I was a bit disappointed with, was Billy Crudup. His character was just very dull and was always saying the same thing that kinda wore thin after a while.

Alien: Covenant is one of the scariest films in recent memory. From the gorgeous and beautifully eerie shots, this film had me biting my nails from the start. Not to mentions it’s just absolutely horrifying. This is no doubt the scariest one in the franchise and I loved every second of it. When the trailer came out for this, I was absolutely so excited and just in awe. I stayed away from every trailer after that so I didn’t know what to expect but I had high hopes. This actually exceeded my expectations. Like Prometheus, I’ve heard a lot of people are mixed about this one too but I’m here to say, that it’s fantastic.

But is this film perfect? It isn’t but the flaws of this film are very little for me. As for problems, they didn’t really answer everything from Prometheus that I wanted to be answered in the actual movie and that kind of disappointed me. However, the films itself is so spectacular that it’s easily forgivable.

This is one of the scariest, bloodiest, awesome sci-fi films I’ve seen in a while and a new favorite of mine in the Alien franchise. I’m a bit surprised at the mixed reviews for this because it’s absolutely breathtaking. Run to see this as fast as you can as though you’re running from actual aliens.

I’m going to give Alien: Covenant...

4.5 out of 5 stars.

I really did love Wonder Woman, but I can’t wait for the day when a movie won’t be considered revolutionary or wildly feminist just for centering on a female superhero, and we can actually discuss and change issues like how Diana was visibly wearing makeup in every single scene? How her beauty is commented on almost as much as, if not more than, her powers and abilities? How she literally fought a war in not just the most unreasonable miniskirt, heels, and corset ever, but also the most sexualized? How her lack of knowledge about the human world is used to put her into several precariously sexual situations? How in the end, despite that it is her movie and her story, the man is what unlocks her power? Wonder Woman was a welcome gift, but I want the rest of this decade and the next to be spent building and improving on it, not copying it.
