Enchanting, clever and ridiculously charming.
This review is specifically for the director's cut. Wow. What a film. Endlessly clever, funny, and peculiar. An absolute delight. The practical effects showcased here have to be among the best of all time. And the ending just goes the distance. Loved it.
I went into this film knowing I would hate it. I haven't like a movie by Shyamalan in a long long time and I have never loved a Shyamalan movie. I like Unbreakable fine, but I really disliked Split. Somehow it all changes for me here, with the movie critics seem to absolutely hate. This movie is my bread and butter. As a sequel to both Unbreakable and Split, it remembers every aspect of what made those movies work and builds on it. The characters and characters arcs from those past two films are furthered and (in the case of Split) given life and depth. The story is such a fun philosophical fight that escalates to a daring conclusion that layers the universe and story with even more substance and depth. The icing on the cake is that this movie treats its minor character with just as much importance as our leads--something so few films do. It also pulled off the victim falling for the monster in a way that really worked--which I've never seen done well before this. God, it was just so fun. I felt like a kid again. It's the sort of superhero film that made me fall in love with superhero films in the first place. Like the original two X-men movies, it has so much fun in the real world, populating it with the world of comics and running wild with philosophical word play and jousting. Can't wait to see it again.
Great idea for how to make a movie. I didn't get more than halfway through though...it was lacking a real driving force.
I only got 15 minutes into this movie...
Wonderfully written and hard-hitting. Beautiful, honest and real. Stuck with me long after watching it.
A really solid and fun film that distorts history to suit its propaganda lens (see Boots Riley's commentary on it). I highly enjoyed it, but I don't see why it seen as anything close to a masterpiece.
A super solid spark notes on RBG. She is incredible, and the film is pretty good too.
Perfectly fine. Shailene does a great job, but the script never elevates the concept beyond the concept it has to offer.
A beautiful, wandering melody. Deep, soulful and honest. It stuck around in my head a long time after.
I love Mila Kunis, but this film is a train-wreck going paint by numbers in all categories with lowest common denominator jokes. I honestly don't know what people find funny about Kate McKinnon. I try, I really do, but it all is just painful.
Great performances and and some terrific moments.
Terrific performances and wonderfully shot. The film's characters resolve their differences a little too smoothly for me by the end, but a captivating film.
A super solid zombie film that falls victim to a handful of cliches along the way.
It's bad in a way that's visually distracting and often soulless. With leading actors who can't do more than support their good looks, the movie relies on cliches and convention to pressure you into caring. The worlds and monsters are fun, but lack any substance. We visit these place, but don't know how any of them actually live or what their cultures are like. The ending battle is a ton of fun--it's like being a little kid and dropping the whole toy box into the bathtub. By the end, my hate almost fading because I was so impressed by how far they took things. It's a movie not for me. It's for kids, which is fine...but things like How to Train Your Dragon and John Carter exist that do this so much better.
An absolute delight that pulled off the impossible on so many levels. Beautiful, clever and imaginative this movie explodes with ideas and character without ever losing sight of its story.
The first fifteen minutes of this film is one of the best opening scenes to any film I have seen. With a brilliant (and fun) premise, this movie goes plenty of strange and enticing places. A propaganda film made from the heart, with beautiful and unbelievable sequences of fantasy and space. Heaven is well crafted and brought to life with such thoughtfulness. It also is absurdly progressive and preaches a really interesting message. This movie was funded by the UK to help relations between Britain and the US, and it delivers on that promise without ever being too much.
So let's talk about what I like in this movie. The costume is great, the comedy is so outrageous it almost works, and Abby is so bizarrely written you almost can get into it. The monsters and plot are strange as hell, but underneath all that good bad is mostly bad.
The horror. Terribly shot with an awful story and even worse, it is boring and bland. This has TV movie written all over it, and not in the fun way.
It took a while before I trusted this film. So much of its antics feel amateur at first, but then you are faced with such witty and clever dialogue that you start to wonder if you are looking at the thing wrong. I mistook parody for bad writing at first, but once it all clicked together for me I was mesmerized and desperate to watch it all over again. It's preposterous and an absolute delight. When the credits rolled, I told my friend "I think I may love this film." Given some time to sit on it, I think I really do.
