    I Can Only Imagine

    ★★★

    Even if you don’t want the preachiness which this has in buckets (albeit more paletable than others) this film actually has a great message for people no matter where they’re at in life to follow their dreams. The filmmaking isn’t too original, there’s a lot of unnecessary haze in a lot of the scenes, but he does do this cool revealing editing where you don’t understand the context of a scene until the camera pans around and you fully understand what’s going on.

    Overall it was good to see a biopic that’s not trying to be Scorsese.

    This isn’t even that good.

    This is supposedly the best superhero movie to date. Either this goes to show that superhero movies are worthless, or humanity has just taken a sharp turn towards the apocalypse. (Not kidding).

    It seems movies like The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Rocketeer, The Winter Soldier, Iron Man and Wonder Woman have simply dropped off the face of the earth. It's as if all the sudden people have begun to accept amateur special effects as "dazzling" and "a spectacle to behold"!…

    This is such an unexpected movie, a great first Noah Baumbach for me. I love all the nuances he's able to build into the characters that could never have come to light in a conventional movie. They're so real, and that's why he's known for that. I'm just warning you, it's not all feel good.
