Have you ever suddenly felt ‘hey I really must watch Rosemary’s Baby tonight’? Ugh I love this movie so much.
❎ want to be Shang Chi bcos of superpowers
✅ want to be Shang Chi because he has Tony Leung as his dad and got to train with Michelle Yeoh, also go karaoke with Awkwafina
At least it’s not a standard issue MCU solo movie. Tony Leung is the best part in this. Most of the fights are entertaining but i’m not a fan of the final boss fight. The scenes in Ta Lo needed to be way more epic…
It is so nice to watch Nice People Problems in a movie. The first hour of the movie is super cute and lovely. Nic Cage and Bridget Fonda are great together, their characters are very kind and super innocent. It’s also fun to see the supporting characters who have become character actor heavyweights like Stanley Tucci, Ann Dowd, Wendell Pierce.
So sad we dont get these kind of movies that much anymore.
At least 50 Shades had a fully drawn out scene discussing consent. This one is heavy on assault and stockholm syndrome.
The only redeeming point is that they nailed (pun unintentionally intended) the sex scenes, which are way better than 50S. There’s a hot sex montage but was sadly ruined by the ugly soundtrack. This movie used out-of-place pop songs for scene transitions more than Star Wars used wipes. There’s also four shopping montages but zero plot.
I am weak for musicals so this is a very very enjoyable movie for me. Everything is top of the class, the actors, music, direction, choreography. Hahah i cried twice, it is so so good, all the emotions hit like crazy. The staging during When the Sun Goes Down is unreal man. And the whole Paciencia y Fe broke meee. Might go watch it again if i have the chance.
