Having watched the first two episodes, I'd agree that the writing is stronger than Loki, though I thought that Wandavision was pretty well written.

I haven't seen The Birds, but I can still agree with your incandescent rage.

Marnie just . . . is not a good movie. For so many reasons, but especially its cheap psychology.

It is SO GOOD. Like it would probably make a top 10 horror list if I ever made one.

The Birds (really never interested me)
