    ★★½

    Take out the obnoxious narration and overly-sentimental soundtrack and maybe this movie would be slightly more watchable. Ben Stiller? He’s fine. I guess. The son? He’s there and he’s going to college, man. Very exciting.

    ★★★½

    I don’t see how this movie has a 3.0 average rating. Denzel Washington is REALLY good as Roman J. Israel, Esq. and his character is really interesting and fun to watch on-screen.

    The final scene of this movie legitimently terrifies me. That jump scare is really effective because it's the only jump scare in the movie, and everything else is just really disturbing imagery. 

    Pretty great movie. 😦

    I’m overwhelmed at how perfect this movie is. Every one in this film, is just incredible. The soundtrack ramps up and builds wonderful tension in these stressful scenes (like the game show sequence), and I really liked how it all came together in the end, even if it was a bit of a deus ex machina (literally?). Paul Thomas Anderson needs to be protected so he can make movies until he’s 130 years old. He’s such a fascinating man and such an authentic director.
