Funny. Bright. Dark. Well written. Well acted. Costume design impeccable
O.M.G. THIS MOVIE SUCKED!!!
To be honest I was not expecting too much but even that was hoping for more than what I would ultimately receive
AND we did the IMAX thing.....unimpressed. Will never spend the money for that so called "experience" again
Too Long - I actually left about 2/3 way through the movie to take a break. I NEVER leave during a movie unless the bathroom call is just too far gone to ignore. In this instance I left to walk around a bit, stretch my legs and text my daughters just how awful the movie was. Even my son-in-law who loves this type of movie thought it was horrible.
The Dialogue - CHEESY, and not in a good way. Hell even cheesy is giving it too much credit. It was just downright sophomoric. I think that a high school fan fiction writer could have written a better screen play. It was eye roll worthy, cringe inducing at times and the so called jokes were flatter than a french crepe
The Acting - Somewhere between lackluster and awful. Though I am willing to place most of the blame for the perceived bad acting to fall upon the shoulders of the horrific writing. You can only do so much with the material you are given.
The End Credits - The best part of the movie because that was my signal that I could finally go home
........a few hours later
My daughter and I went to see The Favourite. Very good movie. Funny. Bright. Dark. Well written. Beautifully acted.
For a year I have been patiently waiting for the return of Mary Poppins. She was well worth the wait!!
I could not stop smiling throughout the entire movie. Emily Blunt proves herself to be the practically perfect Mary Poppins to fill the shoes of an equally practically perfect Julie Andrews. I would even go so far as to say that Ms Blunts Mary Poppins felt a bit more real to me. She seemed to feel more, to have a sense of longing, a touch of sadness - the spoils of being so wise. I would chalk this up to the people behind the camera giving room for the actors to find their characters.
Lin Manuel Miranda looked as though he were having the time of his life. And that smile I mentioned having throughout the entire movie? That smile was so huge during the dance number for Trip a Little Light Fantastic.
I brought my daughter, son-in-law (who by the way has a huge crush on Julie Andrews) and my 8 year old grandson to see the movie. It was unanimous, we loved it. All of it. Everyone in it. All the songs, the music, the dancing, the story, the call backs.
No practically about it - it was, plain and simple, a perfect, joyful fun magical movie!
I have a confession to make:
I am not prone to ohh and ahh over a Marvel super hero movie. I do not care for the Iron Man movies, Captain America is just shmeh IMO and I honestly did not get all the hullalaboo over Black Panther. Sure they are entertaining enough for a Saturday afternoon watch on Netflix (i.e.) but not movies I am willing to fork over theater amounts of money to watch.
But Sunday afternoon changed that line of thinking for me. I brought my grandson to see Spiderman Into the Spiderverse.
I LOVED IT!! The movie itself is damn near flawless. The animation is amazing, at times a glorious assault on the senses. Now, I am normally not one who wants my senses to be assaulted - but what they did with this movie was quite frankly, at times, mind boggling. So while it was a visual assault of colors, fast moving graphics, etc I was still able to sit back and not only enjoy the fun of it all but also appreciate the talent and endless hours of work that no doubt was required.
The voicing actors were great. With a few whose voices I was not expecting
I literally laughed out loud throughout this movie, as did everyone else in the theater. Most of the humor my 8 year old grandson was able to appreciate. A couple of moments though I am sure were a bit lost on him. Not that those moments were "blue" in nature, but rather you would need to be over a certain age to understand some of the pop culture references. It was such fun watching him have such a fun time watching this movie. Basically I got a two for one special - watched a great movie and reveled in watching my grand-son enjoy it just as much as I was.
The story line is twisty enough to keep it interesting yet simple enough to keep it from becoming convoluted. I mean lets be honest here - my grand-son was probably having an easier time understanding the whole multi dimension universes than I was.
If you are Marvel fan and/or a Spiderman fan then of course you must see this movie.
BUT if you are like me and would normally just wait to watch a superhero movie on Netflix (i.e.) if you even watch them at all then take two steps back, go online and buy a couple of tickets to see this movie in the theater. You NEED to see this one in the theater! Take your kids, your grand-kids, nieces, nephews HELL take your mom and dad! It is just that awesome of a movie, anyone and I mean ANYONE should be able to find the fun in this movie and enjoy the almost 2 hour ride (and those 2 hours fly by!!)
