Joe Dante was the best and everything about 'Gremlins' is a blast. Everything looks great, sounds great, feels great. I believe this entire world and everything that happens within its borders. Even with how insanely dangerous it turns out to be I think I want to live in Kingston Falls.
The film is tight, has amazing sets and creature effects, and a wonderfully fitting score.
I am usually a fan of Baumbach's films, and 'While We’re Young’ does nothing to change that. That said, this film is definitely different from Baumbach’s other work. It feels a little more straightforward, a little more reserved, a little more accessible. I don’t think this is definitively good or bad, but the bottom line is that it works both at an entertainment level and a thematic level.
Stiller’s character is an interesting one, a subject for us to both…
Works as a spy film, action film, revenge film, and siege film. Does a good job at taking relatively small stakes (for a Bond film), and blowing them up on a grander scale. So easily digestible, this film is fun to watch, has the just the right amount of humor, and is the best looking Bond film ever.
