The glum fact is that “Gone Girl” lacks clout where it needs it most, at its core. We are accustomed to Fincher’s heroes being as obsessively smart as he is, if lacking his overarching patience, whereas Nick remains, to put it gently, a lunkhead. Amy has twice the brain, and ten times the…

Thank you for this PSA, reblogging this as a reminder to self that I should never pay any heed to whatever Anthony Lane might say. Ugh, the entire point of Gone Girl is that Amy is always ten steps ahead of Nick!  But oh no, a woman with agency! Who drives the entire movie (despite her initial absence)! We can’t have that, can’t we?

Two magicians shall appear in England…
The first shall fear me; the second shall long to behold me;
The first shall be governed by thieves and murderers;

the second shall conspire at his own destruction;
The first shall bury his heart in a dark wood beneath the snow, yet still feel its ache;
The second shall see his dearest possession in his enemy’s hand…

#but ah yes#Mutant And Proud: Unless You Are A Telepath Because Then You’d Better Not

CHARLES

#x-men: days of future past #seriously there was basically no development in either movie about how little acceptance charles got for using his powers #and the ethical dilemma of when and how to use your powers #like bless his heart but eric was either get in my head right now or stay the fuck out #mixed signals dude #and raven #poor darling #internalized all of her self-hatred and let it loose against charles #well just like everything #i almost would have preferred a two hour three way shouting match than this movie #hmmph

I did like DOFP, but I do wish that it delved more into the moral dilemmas that come with being a telepath, and how much strength it takes to keep believing in people, even when they keep pushing you away. Yes, I would also watch the shit out of an X-Men movie shot as kitchen-sink melodrama.
