Doctor Strange
Nothing special, but entertaining. Also felt pretty rushed.

Yes to all, but as a comic book dweeb all the positive feelings were probably amplified ten-fold. Kinda loved the movie even if it isn't a favorite.

It was fun and that's all I demand from a movie like that.
Could have been more, but didn't have to.

You gotta admit, the ending was pretty creative for a comic book movie.

Yeah, that loop was a cool idea.

Love Actually (2003).

This did not live up to its own potential. I had really hoped for something more like Crazy, Stupid, Love where the individual stories intersect in the end to deliver a clever pay-off but no, it was basically just a series of cheesy Christmas shorts. None of the characters had enough screentime to really experience meaningful transformations, and I don't understand why Rowan Atkinson has top billing for something he's in for ~30 seconds.

Shame, because I feel like the script was good, but after a handful of re-writes it could have been great, and I think they could have had a more highly stylized director. Between the pop songs, the A-list cast, and the cheesy romances, it was a very "commercial" film.

Love Actually is one of the greatest films ever made!

2 seconds into it and i'm fucking balling...i have seriously been putting it off this holiday season because i'm just not ready to deal with what this film does to me

The Bay City Rollers scene alone sets me of

i'm crying right now thinking about it!


also i love the conversation about Arrival....and i'll quote a line from another amazing but much more disturbing film.....

"time destroys all things"
