Not quite enough there, even for a short, but still kept me watching - in part because seeing Times Square crowded with people who are unafraid of proximity to other people felt like science fiction.
Still incredible on watch three. There are enough great moments that you forget some of the great moments until moments before the forgotten great moments happen and then you think “oh my god, here comes another fucking great moment, how are there so many great moments in this movie??” My only knock on this movie is that it should be called Great Moments.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A movie, which, for all its excess in most other departments, is entirely devoid of characters. When you're spending this much money, you'd think some time would be spent on character development before the pre-viz budget starts hitting 50 million. Why not start at step one? Here's an exercise...
What does each character want?
Jyn: wants to... see her Dad again? I guess? Well, she does. And then... hey guys, spitballing, how about we pay emotional attention to the idea…
You can safely arrive at any screening of Coco 30 minutes late. This “short” film felt like it was three hours long.
Also fuck Josh Gad and his terrifying, uncanny valley, completely bullshit enthusiasm voice. Fuck Olaf. Fuck his “frozen adventure”. Fuck life. This movie made me hate living it.
