Would it seem incongruous is I said these two different things about BLINDSPOTTING:
1) It’s a film about gentrification.
2) The last 30 minutes have more tension and intensity than any thriller or action movie I’ve seen in the past year.
Typically, when I see a movie in the theater, I don’t bother doing any more than a tweet about it. For example:
Resolved: Henry Cavill's mustache in MI:Fallout is worth every frame of crappy cgi in Justice League or whatever.
Terrific movie. See it on the big screen for the gorgeous location shots.

Ant Man and The Wasp is a lot of fun. Light-hearted and funny.

But this film feels too complicated for a simple tweet. It’s like a buddy comedy where the funny bits are suddenly cut short by the very real possibility of tragedy. It’s a coming-of-age story for two characters who are already grown men. It’s social and political commentary hung on a frame work of friendship and dumb choices and being unable to erase your past.
Anyway, see this movie as soon as you can, if you can. It’s funny and sad and thrilling and extraordinarily vital.
