I worship Steven Spielberg.
I didn't really know what to expect from Encanto. I definitely was anticipating since Disney Animation has very rarely let me down and the reviews really seemed to promise something special.
The movie itself. It's perfectly fine! It's enjoyable, charming, cute and perfectly watchable, but it just lacked that spark that really made movies like Moana and Frozen succeed. The story itself has heart, but everything just feels so rushed that the emotional impact was mostly lost on me. Not…
Naked isn't good, but it's a hell lot better than what I thought it'd be. It's not funny, it's lazy, and at only 90 minutes the film feels like it's 3 hours long. Marlon Wayans and Regina Hall do give it a lot of effort though, so there's that and there's some actual genuinely sweet moments during the film. Better than a lot of the comedies from Netflix.

Quirky, relatable, hilarious at times, and heartbreaking; Me and Earl and the Dying Girl stands out from all the other "Young Adult" films and becomes it's own thing.
All the performance are excellent, especially from it's three leads Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke, and RJ Cyler. All three have excellent chemistry with each other, which helps ignite the film's emotion. Nick Offerman and John Bernthal also turn in exceptional performances.
