    It was fine. I'm glad I saw it. It's weird watching something and having to like... put yourself in the mindset of seeing its innovations for the first time. I really liked it, but I'm so familiar with its cultural beats I think I didn't get the full experience.

    Well this was not at all what I was expecting. The trailer did not even hint at the story that actually mattered. While it left me frustrated for the characters, I was pleased at how strongly I felt towards (and against) them.

    Doesn't justify its existence for me. Weird undercurrent of "mixed race people will save the world" that felt very anti-black. Strong performances wasted on an ill-advised project.

    White people's new favourite race movie. The Help but for bromances. The only redeeming quality is the spectacular performances by Viggo and Mahershala. It's going to win every award.
