When it comes to Sandler and his Netflix films, most of them are awful and only try to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Films like Ridiculous 6 and Hubie Halloween immediately come to mind. But Sandler keeps cranking them out because for some reason people keep watching them! And then Sandler stars in an actual thoughtful story like this and gives an amazing performance.. and nobody watches it!! We need to give these kind of Sandler performances more attention…
How did Damien Chazelle make something like jazz band so enthralling but going to space boring? Chazelle knocked it out of the park for me with his first two movies but didn’t quite hit the mark on his third, similar to Tarantino and Jackie Brown or Nolan and Insomnia. First Man is by no means a bad movie and it both sounds and looks incredible. It was just a bit of a snooze fest.
I am a huge fan of Adam Sandler. He has shown plenty of times that he can be a serious actor, such as what he did in Uncut Gems. His comedic performances are a lot more difficult for me to connect with. But he can be very good as long as his character isn’t too over the top, which he accomplishes nicely here. I haven’t seen Blended, and I probably never will, but between this and 50 First Dates, Sandler…
I was really expecting this to hit me harder than it did. For whatever reason, I just didn’t connect with the characters as much as I thought so would. Still an endearing story with an interesting moral dilemma at its core.

What a pleasant surprise this was! Quite possibly my favourite Disney live action remake. Probably my main critique is that it’s far too long. There’s no reason this should’ve been over two hours. Also, Mark Strong was criminally underused. Other than that, a very fun prequel!
Cruella. Emma Thompson’s Baroness is the only other character that comes close but this is completely Emma Stone’s movie.
The montage of Cruella upstaging the Baroness was great!
Here’s a shocker for all of you: Scorsese and DeNiro made a good movie together 😱 and not just a good movie but a great movie! After seeing this I definitely get where The Joker got its inspiration from.
The restaurant scene. Surprisingly relatable. I mean, who among us hasn’t fantasized about a better life from time to time?
