I went to film school for four months at a college where they shot parts of City Slickers 2: The Legend of Curly’s Gold.
After the insane production this movie went through, I was ALWAYS going to watch it.
This was supposed to be released in April 2018, but they pushed it for reshoots. BUT THEN the Disney/Fox merger began and it completely shut down any work on the film at all. By the time the merger completed, all the actors were TOO OLD FOR RESHOOTS TO MATCH, so they had to finish all their edits and CGI tweaks WITHOUT any reshoots!
I know in my bones that life is short but this is the third time I've seen Foodfight! so apparently I don't think it's short ENOUGH.
This is the craziest movie I've ever seen. It's pure chaos energy. I would say it's Lynchian, but the truth is Lynch could never. Every moment in this movie is baffling. I truly recommend it, if only to see what's possible in not just the medium of animation, but of cinema.
Larry Miller the GOAT.
All the main criticisms of this movie - that the final battle is a little flat, that Starkiller base is extremely stupid, that the rathtar scene does not work at all, and that the relationship between the Resistance, the Republic and the First Order is murky - are totally fair and correct but here's the thing:
I do not care.
I love these characters, I love Rey and Finn and Poe and BB god damned 8, and I think this thing is a masterpiece. Love it.
