    Movies like this are why I save my five star reviews. The dialogue? Perfect. Immaculately written, impeccably performed. The costumes? Cohesive, enticing, beautiful works of art! The sets! The production design! Literal perfection! And don’t even get me started on the absolute twists and turns this movie takes. I just.. I’m so happy to have found this movie, on Valentine’s Day of all days! My new favorite rom-com of all time. Thank you, Peyton Reed and company. I appreciate you all.

    I thought this was going to be one of those movies that was so bad it was good. But instead what I got was an absolute disaster of a movie that could have been so bad it was good, if only every person making it was actually on the same page about the movie they were making. It was a raging battle between competency and negligence, the likes of which I have never seen. Michaelina Lee and Ping Wu probably…

    Lisa Frankenstein was a fun flick that had lots of good parts (pun intended). But overall, it felt like a first draft. Lots of setups with no payoffs left me hanging for closure in a movie that I know, given just a few more rounds of revision, could have been as tight as Jennifer’s Body. Some bits also felt like they were written solely for the purpose of progressing the story from point A to point B, particularly in the first act. For me it just lacked the connective tissue it needed to fully come together.
