    Sundance 2022 Film #17

    CHA CHA REAL SMOOTH is my new comfort film and now my favorite of Sundance. Being 22 myself, this is exactly the movie I needed right now. Cooper Raiff has made an extremely beautiful dramedy that had me laughing, crying & smiling like never before. Great autistic representation and 🔥 soundtrack. I had ZERO anticipation for this because I've never seen Raiff's first feature, but now I can't wait to watch this again.

  • The Bitch Who Stole Christmas

    The Bitch Who Stole Christmas

    ★½

    This is essentially a Drag Race acting challenge stretched to feature length. Is it well written? No. Is it well directed? No. Is it well acted? Not really. Is anything about it objectively good from any type of technical standpoint? Not at all. Did I laugh and have fun? Mostly.  

    RuPaul trying to typecast Jan as a girl with no personality is just cruel. Also why was Brooke Lynn playing a Russian hooker? Was Katya not available? I could watch an entire movie of Latrice being the Ghost of Christmas Past/Present/Future tho. Not enough Latrice in this.

    I didn't intend on doing this, but watching this after watching ELVIS made for an interesting double feature.

    Also what kind of hold did Tate Taylor have on Hollywood in the early 2010s to be a white man able to direct but this and THE HELP???

    ★★★

    Two things are great about this movie: Austin Butler and Baz Luhrmann. One thing is a glaring misstep: Tom Hanks.

    I really don't know what Tom Hanks is trying to do here. He's too cartoonish of a villain, he's doing this weird Eastern European accent when Tom Parker is supposed to be Dutch, and his fat face prosthetics are laughably bad. He brings down the film considerably for me.
