It’s all well and good for the hearing-challenged community to have its own Marvel superhero. This plus CODA makes 2021 a banner year in this respect, but banner isn’t the word I’m really thinking of — it’s banal. As in “what a banal world we’re all living in”….representation matters, representation matters, representation matters. But shouldn’t other stuff matter when it comes to making gripping cinema? You know that because Ridloff is part of the Eternals family…aahh, forget it. Not worth going into.
