A guy has been stuck in a time loop a la Groundhog Day when a girl gets stuck in it with him. It's a fresh take on the premise, it's well paced, the romance is realistic and not over saturated, and it's funny throughout. Our main actors and some of the side characters really help endear these characters to you, and a lot of the big things they struggle with are very relatable. The science is used just enough to move the plot along and not enough to bog it down, and the cinematography is on point. There's some nit picks and some things that didn't quite agree with me, but they are few and far between. It's a really great movie.
A guy is stranded, finds a dead body, becomes friends with it and finds the will to go on and gets back to civilization using the body's special abilities. Both leads act the hell out of this movie, and the score hits in all the right places. It does this bizarre balancing act of weird gross out humor and extremely poignant dissection of living a lonely life, but by the end I wasn't sure exactly what the movie wanted me to take away from it. It made me feel something, but I'm honestly not sure what. I'm at a loss, so it gets the most down the middle rating because I don't know how to rate it.
This look back at Elton John's life is engaging both in the story that it has to tell as well as the sometimes surreal and fantastical way it tells it. The transition from normal scenes to musical ones were very smooth and Taron Egerton kills it, doing all the actual singing. The costumes were on point and they did a good job nailing hard to describe feelings, like when you have that out of body experience at a concert and hit that magic moment. But the film also doesn't shy away from the dark side of stardom, which I appreciated. It's a little long, and the fact that I'm not super into the subject doesn't help, but I liked the messaging and the portrayal of what celebrity life can be like.
I hated watching this movie. It was so uncomfortable. I hated all the characters. There was no real message. You'd think being set in a more present day that we'd see how social media makes things for young people more difficult, but it seems to just be a time sink for our main character. There's a few comments that are made that I thought were nice, but it was painful to sit through this movie and not in a way that was at all rewarding.
A rat wants to be a chef in Paris, he finds a bumbling human to help him achieve his dream. It's so zany and nonsensical. Few of the character motivations make sense, especially the main female chef. I found myself saying "What?" in confusion several times throughout. I couldn't find one character I wanted to root for. It did look very pretty, especially the food and the rat scurrying animations. This must have been made firmly with kids in mind, which is a shame because usually you can count on Pixar to provide a compelling story for adult audiences as well but that's just not the case here.
