    ★★★★

    A wicked, sumptuous delight. Three amazing performances, prominent music, a great script... and Horatio, the fastest duck in the city!!!!! 🦆

    ★★★½

    Bananas, in the best way. Artistic, inventive, and with an insane amount of world-building. The choices are bold (Eddie Redmayne has devoured everything in sight) and don't always work (Mila Kunis is bland as heck), but it's certainly A VISION with great ideas and grand aspirations. It's really a shame we'll never get another one, because I think there's a lot to love and great places these characters could be taken.

    ★★★★½

    More stylized than I remember, with so many great shots. Fantastic set pieces and characters.

    Everyone embraced this straight-up PULP so hard, it makes it even sadder that “Atlantis: The Lost Empire,” “John Carter,” and “Sky Captain” didn’t connect. They’re cut from the very same cloth.

    ★★★½

    Fun, stylish. Really great casting. The needle-drop music choices are (for my taste) overbearing, unending, and too on-the-nose. Production design & costumes are (unsurprisingly) great. Enjoyable. I’d spend more time with these characters. Emma Thompson is such a fuckin’ queen.

    I Used to Go Here

    Very charming, funny, and relatable for anyone wrestling with fitting the pieces of their life together in ways that feel truthful: your own authenticity of who you want to be; fondness for your past, without losing yourself in nostalgia; and finding honesty because of or in spite of other's perceptions of you.

    A great cast, and a familiar indie-film feel -- fits like a cozy sweater.

    ★★★★

    Really, really lovely. Gorgeous animation: style and skill. One of the best scores of the year AND fantastic jazz, throughout. Hopeful and inspiring, even in its melancholy. Directing, acting... Just great, across the board.


    I don’t think this is top-shelf Pixar, but I understand why everyone likes it. And truly I want to re-watch it.
