    Have I ever seen anything more heartfelt? Doubtful.

    After the movie opened with pretty much nothing happening and then flashing the big MARVEL title yet again, I was pretty annoyed from the start. Why is Marvel trying to do this cold open thing? It's fine if there's immediate action, but without that it just feels like I'm watching TV. It's not what I'm going to the theater for. I can do that on my own damn time at my own damn house.

I expected them to do a lot of the running gags, but they only picked a few. The rest was a fresh take on what they had been doing, a lot of great stuff in that signature style.

    The strange way that you start out absolutely hating Sam and end up finding him to be the most tolerable in the film by the end of it was impressive. He doesn't become a better person, there's no moral tale, he's already amazing at being himself. He knows what he's doing, is certain about who he is, and makes no attempt to be otherwise. It takes a full cast of conniving, rude, annoying, foolish people to make you see how he's the best of the bunch.

    No chemistry between Sam and Brigid whatsoever, just wasn't believable. Joel Cairo was my favorite, what a strange little man.
