This was an incredibly lovely movie with some truly beautiful moments...I just couldn't fully get into it.
Tom Hanks and Matthew Rhys both give great performances and I fully stand behind everything Mr. Rogers preached, but the surreal aspects of this never fully landed for me and the pacing - while reflective of Roger's classic show - made the film feel much longer than it is for the amount of story included.
Overall a noble effort that I respect rather than love.
'Knives Out' is a breath of fresh air that entertains and intrigues from the first frame to the last.
The cast is a perfect collection of all-star talent but Ana de Armas shines as the lesser known centerpiece of the whole story although I expect she'll grow to outshine all of them.
Now excuse me while I go put on a cozy sweater and say bitchy things to my family.
About halfway through 'Frozen 2' I realized I didn't particular care about anything that was happening from a plot perspective. I just wanted to turn off the dialogue and soak in the absolutely gorgeous visuals and lush music.
This obviously isn't the exact reaction a filmmaker would want for their work but it was kind of enough for me.
....but I also wouldn't turn down a snuggle from one of those baby reindeer.
Without question 'Marriage Story' is masterful work in terms of acting, writing, and direction. I laughed. I cried. I cringed in horror. Adam Driver and Scarlet Johansson are just absolutely perfect in every moment they're on screen and I look forward to revisiting this incredible work over and over again as the years go on.
The highly publicized run time of 'The Irishman' is indeed daunting and even though I had to pee for at least half of it I never felt tempted to actually get up and go. If that's not a testament to Scorsese's work here, I don't know what is.
DeNiro, Pacino, and Pesci all turn in work here that is mesmerizing and cements their status as legends in the field but I found myself wishing the film itself was more worthy of their efforts. As a movie that attempts to cover the majority of a single human life it suffers some of the same pitfalls of other biopics by feeling episodic and a little scatterbrained. Scorsese and Co. make sure its never dull but I didn't myself truly sucked into the narrative until the final third.
But if this is what it takes to get Pesci on my screen more often, I'm 100% supportive of it.
