    Many films in the past have showcased this particular transitional period in Hollywood, as studios moved from the silent era into talking pictures, but no film has exhibited this era in such an eyepopping, dazzling, and raucously entertaining way. I can not remember seeing a film this "big" in quite sometime.

    This film was waaaay funnier than I had anticipated and I found myself laughing out loud on numerous occasions. The dialogue was extremely well written and offered plenty of…

    There were plenty of sniffles to open and close this film and I appreciated the level of respect exhibited by acknowledging the real world grief that audiences will be coming into this film with.

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    This film somehow lived up to the immense, albeit thankfully well deserved, praise it has been receiving and offers a truly unique and memorable experience, a seemingly rarer and rarer occurence these days.

    Wildly entertaining while still carrying quite an emotional load, I got goosebumps more than a few times, with the rocks hitting me especially hard.

    The more a film affects me emotionally the harder I find it can be to write about, and while this film definitely will…
