This was a really lengthy, overwhelming cinematic experience, but one I adored with all of my heart. Not gonna quite give it 5 stars yet, but it can definitely get there after a rewatch. The animation is mindblowingly amazing once again, and the voice work is stellar, but what shocked me most was how dense this film is narratively… and how it still manages to keep you engaged and desperate for more. Absolutely loved this movie, my new favorite of 2023!
This was a fantastic, harrowing film that really impressed me with its directorial prowess and its lead performance. I’ve really liked Sydney Sweeney for a bit (especially for the two roles she’s been Emmy-nominated for), but this has to be her best performance yet. Excited to see what both she and the director do next!
You may think this is hyperbole or a real overexaggeration, but Blonde is the worst film I have ever seen.
It lacks any sort of plot or cohesion. Scenes just happen and are almost completely unconnected from one another, and its piss-poor pacing ruins what very little overarching narrative (literally nothing happens besides abortions and deaths) it had.
It’s ugly and nonsensically shot (with the director’s pretentiousness present in every frame).
It’s so poorly acted. Ana de Armas plays this…
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 2023
Maybe it’s a bit long and a bit tonally jarring at points, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the perfect conclusion to a superbly energetic franchise in a time where most blockbusters feel drab and factory-produced. It’s heartfelt, hilarious, and a heckin’ great time! (Though I did cry like 7 different times)
I’m just so happy this film exists, as it’s the best sendoff I could’ve ever hoped for for these characters that have meant so much to me since I saw them on the big screen as a little girl who giggled at every joke, even the ones she didn’t understand.
