I was hoping you'd guess that I'd watched EoE in its theatrical re-release. But since then, I've also watched Ghostbuster: Frozen Empire.

Eternals (2021)

Seems like a mix between Terence Mallick and Puella Magi Madoka Magica. The plot is different from the original Jack Kirby version as well as the Neil Gaiman adaptation, and it has its own unique style, which makes it interesting to watch. What is confusing is that it tries to add its own mystical universe and backstory in the background of all the other Marvel universes, such as the concept of god-like beings in Thor, alien races in Guardians of the galaxy, and multiple dimensions in Dr Strange. At the end of the movie, it also tries to force more obscure Marvel superheroes in the run Harry styles shows up in post-credits as Thano's brother. Avengers was a good focal point for bringing together all the superheroes, but it seems Marvel is now diverging into different plotlines, which makes it hard to follow now and less relevant. For a standalone concept, it works but I am not sure about following its sequels.

The Menu (2022)

Glass Onion x Ratatouille x the Manson family. I was familiar with the plot before watching it but was surprised by how tense it became, and I enjoyed the psychological thriller aspect of the film. The dishes themselves were very symbolic and worked well as a narrative device to open up concepts on the relevance of food art and fine dining as well as maybe upper society's overindulgence of it. I also thought there were some other areas regarding Stockholm syndrome and hypocrisy, but the movie doesn’t cover enough ground for me to fully agree with the logic. It remains rather unbelievable when we learn more about the head chef, his reasons for inviting his guests to fine dine with him, and what led him to become disillusioned with his life.
