    I liked Maisie, I liked some story beats, that's all. Can't stand this style anymore, it really gets on my nerves how 95% of big-budget animation movies look like this. It's just tired at this point.

    What's not to love? The Dark Shark prank could've made it to Forever and it would've been my favorite of the bunch, so fucking funny

    Very weirded out by this one. Herzog is not my favorite filmmaker, not by a long shot, but his commitment to his themes and beliefs about life and film comes through in his movies in a really fascinating way that makes his work always entertaining and watchable.

    I think that in an unexpected way this film benefits massively from having the perspective of another filmmaker ingrained throughout though, one that manages to be even weirder and more out there than…

    Looks amazing and it makes me sad that so much artistry went into making all of these visuals only to serve this absolutely nothing of a script.

    Buzz is the most boring Pixar lead ever, too. I can barely comprehend how they came up with such a humorless, uninteresting character out of someone that is supposed to be a space hero that kids would think is cool. A layup if I've ever seen one and instead they go for the sad sack existential thing instead... yikes

    Feels like those movies from back in the day that you'd find late at night while flipping channels, Matt Damon is in it so you give it a chance and it's actually great! Can't remember the last of its kind I've watched.

    It's a very straightforward movie but Marseille and Matt Damon really elevate it. Among his best performances as far as I'm concerned!

    Hate to be harsh when I didn't actually hate it, but what a waste of talent this was. The three leads are great throughout but the film doesn't seem interested in saying anything - it's mostly an exercise of building up a situation only to "subvert expectations" and deliver a crazy, unexpected finale that isn't actually crazy at all, it's just boring and uninteresting.

    This movie nailed Gotham! I really missed gothic Gotham, rain pouring all the time, everything is just miserable. It feels right and looks beautiful.

    And I love how introspective this version of Batman is. For once he gets a believable character arc that feels earned and making both sides of the character stumble through stuff and have to figure out a better way of doing their thing is great.
