Look: I had a hard day at work and didn’t want to dive into some prestigious critical darling like Roma, okay? I just wanted to eat my incorrect McDonalds order while watching something that would help me forget about all the shitty people I deal with on an almost daily basis.
This movie is solid. “But it came out the same year as Prince of Egypt and it’s not as good and blah blah blah” this movie just works, okay? It subverts fairy tale tropes, it has a rocking soundtrack (and I’m not just talking about smash mouth, because all know the real musical win in this movie is “Hallelujah”, don’t @me), and it’s kind of an all-time performance from everyone involved. It ain’t perfect but it’s still fun and kind of gets you in the feels.
