    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It’s a movie for the whole family (and the one secretly living in your basement)!

    Taika Waititi: “What if I remade ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ but with Nazis and took out everything good? I’ll call it JoJo Rabbit!”

    Me: “Please no.”

    Finally, the superhero movie is fun again. Smartly written, perfectly cast and expertly executed, James Gunn's space western could almost be mistaken for a stand alone film if it wasn't for the numerous references to looming Marvel villain Thanos. I used to grit my teeth and trudge my way through Marvel's intricate web, but six years in and they've hit their stride. With The Winter Soldier and now this, Marvel's future looks bright even as their universe's threats grow stronger.

    As an action film, the movie isn't really all that great. Average at best. As a stoic allegory about a man confronting death and his own mortality, the movie is amazing. Everything that doesn't work about the action film makes the allegory that much better.
