I got into a sort of debate about this. Well, you can’t really call it a debate, when the other side is not actually interested in listening to your opinions, but come in with strong preconceived notions instead. So, this is more of an argument. Which is frustrating, because I do feel this is a topic that warrants some investigation.
Originally Les trois mousquetaires: D’Artagnan. This seems to be an attempt to start a series of films, as the next movie (Milady) is already set to be released later this year.
Just so there’s no misunderstanding here about the title of this post: I am not trying to make fun of Pride month. I am making fun of various companies that do this performative shit annually, and I’m making fun of myself as someone who would like to be an ally, but really isn’t, because I don’t really do anything besides random things like this for that community, nor do I identify as queer.
I am going to start this by basically proving myself wrong, but I think you still might want to hear me out.
My favorite superhero movie is Batman Returns. Yes, still. After over 30 years, huge leaps in CGI, and billions of dollars being spent into making those movies with a lot of talent behind them, and yet, the movie I like the most is still a weird little personal piece, which was only a hit, because it was a sequel to an actual popular movie.
I have bad news for you… Just sit down and take a deep breath. Ready? Okay.
I found a way in which Tilda Swinton is kind of boring.
Is this topic really of any interest? It is to me. Or at least it’s just funny to me. This is more about the weirdness behind being a movie fan, when you find you have dug yourself deep enough.
TL;DR: A fine movie. If you are into action and don’t mind the extreme fantasy setting, you’ll like it.
In no particular order.
TL;DR: It’s a good movie, but it is not exactly what I was expecting.
So, those of us who are not Finnish might require a bit of an explanation on what sisu is. You’ll find a lot of different definitions, but they all seem to miss the point. Sure, sisu is about perseverance, but its not only that. Its finding the solution, no matter what.
