I watched Before Sunrise for the first time one year ago on Valentine’s Day. I begged my girlfriend to immediately watch this one right after it finished. Thank GOD she said no because I feel like the wait made this so much more meaningful. Not knowing what would happen in this story and to these characters, but so desperately wanting to is kind of essential to what this trilogy is all about. You don’t get to know what’s coming next or…
Tom Hanks is (unfortunately) terrible and Austin Butler is (unfortunately) excellent.
This began so promisingly in the most beautifully gaudy way only Baz Luhrmann can accomplish. Things were really looking up to break the mold of what these films usually provides audiences nowadays. And then Elvis suddenly takes a hard turn to cookie-cutter music biopic without the originality or flare I know Luhrmann can provide. This could’ve been great but it ends up just being middle of the road :/
Started off belly laughing and ended up on the verge of tears. Good Luck to You, Leo Grande is a surprisingly empowering story about sexual expression. And just when it feels like it’s getting too heavy, the humor perfectly cuts the tension. Emma Thompson gives one of her best performance here showcasing her range of drama and comedy.
I’m sad that this was kind of just thrown on Hulu without much marketing or promotion, but I promise it’s worth your time. Don’t let this one pass you by!
When Nicole Kidman said, “Sound that I can feel,” she was talking about this.
For this to be a continuation of a movie I frankly did not care for, it’s amazing how emotionally invested I was. My eyes were AT MINIMUM misty for about half of this movie and it fully earns all of that emotional payoff. Joseph Kosinski’s direction and Hans Zimmer’s score build the tension so well with such beautiful releases that Top Gun: Maverick is hard not to love.
