    ★½

    This is a movie I should love, what with the creepy creatures, deep ocean setting, Kristen Stewart... and all of those elements are here in spades, but they still can’t make up for how weirdly incomprehensible everything is. Dark, blurry explosions and vague shapes fill a good chunk of the run time. Nothing feels particularly impactful or important.

    I don’t know what I expected, but it’s basically an extended music video. The locales and scenery are stunning, but otherwise I think your enjoyment will depend on how much you like Childish Gambino.

    ★★

    I dig the character designs and the actors do their best. But the story is a fairly dull retread of cliches about “being yourself” with sparse laughs.

    I can’t immediately recall another movie that I found both so emotionally devastating at some moments, and then laugh-out-loud funny in others. The movie looks beautiful and the cast nails it.
