Saw this Thursday and again today because I lied to a friend and said I hadn’t seen it yet. 3.5 stars first viewing 4 stars the second time around
Real talk I took an edible before this and forgot that shakespeare words are fucking weird. Thought I was lost for good until denzel showed up, bright like a northern star, ready to guide me through this cinematic journey with his deep, sexy, commanding voice. The set and cinematography were enchanting and made me glad I could only understand 1 out of every 5 words. Like resting in a deprivation tank with speakers blaring old english so my ears shut…
dog shit performance from mr. tom hanks but austin butler does what i presume to be a good elvis and i had fun with it. what can i say, i’m a sucker for some rock & roll (the old kind). my hollywood forecast is this movie is a big win for rising actor austin butler. expect to see his name on those big showbiz sources we all love like TMZ and deuxmoi very soon. tom hanks your career has left the building. dead on the toilet. in the ghetto.
