    The perfect saccharine movie…really feels like this set the table for Forrest Gump years later. 

    My only problem is the outtake immediately over the end credits - it somehow took away from Sellers portrayal of Chauncey in the actual film…completely baffling to me why they would include it.

    Lydia Tár is definitely cut from the same gene pool as Daniel Plainview.

    Jack Burton is the most loveable idiot in action movie history.

    So at the end of the day, this was all just some deranged fairy tale?

    Despite how completely nonsensical it got, I actually enjoyed the last 45 minutes of the movie quite a bit, as it essentially dispels any sort of meaningful plot and rides solely on emotions. Once you realize there’s no real endgame for David, you can get consumed in this world and just feel what Spielberg intended.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Meh.

    Highlights:
    - Zoë Kravitz
    - The score…it really feels like another character in the movie at times
    - That weird warped lense Reeves was using throughout the movie to phase out the surroundings in a shot
    - Zodiac killer-esque mystery 
    - Pattinson. He understood the assignment. *Maybe* the best pure Batman. 
    - Jeffrey Wright’s Gordon, who is neck-and-neck with Oldman’s version

    Lowlights:
    - Sort of a wasted end result for the Riddler, where ultimately he’s just this QAnon-type loser…
