I am not a film critic but I write how I feel.
Title’s dangerously close to an ep of my 2nd fave show Arrested Development (it just replaced sword with dial.) And, just like how the name of Daniel Craig’s last outing as Bond will forever remind me of a Columbo, ditto here as well. Hey, they both share Phoebe Waller Bridge too! I don’t like it. I love it!
Haven’t actually seen the trailer at the time of this write-up. Unless my brother shows me, I’m happy surely eventually seeing it in a cinema. Much like how I’ll be seeing this film for the first time there anyway.
The ingredients are there. Especially Ralph Fiennes (delectable, as always,) and his battle of wits with Anna Taylor Joy could be pretty delicious. Ditto the things it wanted to chew on. But, there was still plenty of meat left on that bone, and I was wanting more. Especially the cheeseburger. Literally the only meal prepared I genuinely wanted. Couldn't get one after the screening. But you better best believe that I'll be having one very soon.
Taylor Joy's expression on…
Nobody does it better.
Makes me feel sad for the rest.
Nobody does it half as good as you.
Baby, you're the best.
I wasn't lookin' but somehow you found me.
I tried to hide from your love light.
But like heaven above me.
My loving mama.
Had shown me what I should have seen all along.
And nobody does it better.
Though sometimes I wish someone could.
Nobody does it quite the way you do.
Why'd you have to…
Looks like putting on all that Murder, She Wrote recently in anticipation of Glass Onion really paid off.
Sure, I could still use a lot more Benoit Blanc (and I hope Daniel Craig's given more time front and center in his latest, and any more upcoming cases.) But, it also seems incredibly stupid to complain at something that gives so much, and where there's nary a weak link amongst the ensemble. It was easily the most I've enjoyed this since…
