    ★★★

    Bennett is so good at acting that she makes other actors look like absolute trash in comparison. The way she depicts her character allowed me to see the emotion/humanity behind her peculiar and strange behaviour (it also helps that the films robotic slow tone/pace complimented her emotional journey).

I would almost consider this meta-commentary for normies but when it's done in such an engrossing and enjoyable way I can't help but find it really captivating. Horror movies really should've ended after this film but we wouldn't have gotten films like Hereditary so I'm not complaining.

    I am convinced that this movie was made in 2001 and only got released now. Already dated, ADHD fueled but could use some Ritalin, virtually none of the jokes work and the character arcs/plotting is the laziest I've ever seen. Sonic himself is the worst part of his own movie and the only thing they cared about was the backlash that the original design got. Look, Jim Carrey did his best with the script and there were some good jokes…
