    ★★★★

    I finished watching Hereditary last night at midnight, but just until now I’ve gathered all my thoughts about it. That’s the first plus for the film; how it lingers and unsettles even after it’s over.

    I have to say, it took a long time for me to gather the courage to watch this, because after watching the trailer and reading some reviews, the expactions about how terrifying it is supposed to be were overwhelming.

    And the film delivers on those…

    It’s time for Miles Morales to shine indeed!

    Loved everything about this! The Spider-gang, the visuals, the music, the story. It’s all there, wonderfully packed.

    This is a feast to the eyes, and a wonderful gift to fans of Spidey and superheroes altogether.

    Ever since I saw the first stills and teasers for it months ago, I knew this film was going to be something special, and I have been looking forward to it like crazy. Now it’s here, it’s truly amazing, and can’t wait to watch it again.

    Don’t believe I’ve felt so many emotions while watching a film before.

    It’s a technical marvel and an artistic wonder.

    Hard to process that these harrowing experience, so brutally portrayed here, actually happened in real life.

    ★★★½

    Surely it didn’t help that I was struggling to not fall sleep because of a 6-hour jet lag, but I don’t think I would be able to explain the story if I was asked.

    It all seemed very abstract and at times random, even - I guess if the true intent was to show us some of this kid’s random dreams, then the film succeeded.

    What we’re presented with, in any case, is artistically great; stunning animation, wonderful visuals, and…

    ★★★★★

    Even though I was a bit ill / not feeling super well, I didn't want to miss the chance to watch this on the big screen - they're only showing it in theaters for a few days here!

    I'm glad I went. It truly has Del Toro's style all over it.

    Textured in a way only stop-motion can feel, this is beautiful to look at.

    As heartwarming as it is heart-wrenching. Also, sharply funny in the right moments.

    A sometimes-painful but ultimately beautiful exploration of the monstrosity of man and the humanity of "monsters"; of the miracle and tragedy of life.

    It's a gift.

    This is the first film I’ve watched in the cinema since the lockdown ~5 months ago. Decided to go to a 11:30am screening hoping that few people would attend. In the end there were like 7 others in there. All the time I was wearing a mask.

    I’m glad I went. I had fun with the spectacle of the movie combined with the excitement of just being in the cinema again.

    But this is a mess of a film.

    It’s…
