    On paper every person involved in this film is overqualified, and subsequently no one is. The level of commitment here is genuinely inspiring.

    Wish we got like 3 or 4 of these a year. Not too many — I just want peak-performance master craftsmen to make me misty-eyed over a silly little story once in a while okay.

    Baby's First Chekhov and I was a bit tired, and nothing about this adaptation (use of that word is extremely loose here) was designed to account for that. It's a movie a play a TV special and subsequently nothing at all, but Judy is undeniable (duh).

    She just wanted her cherry orchard, man!!

    This is anime come to life. Vivid world-building, wild plot pivots, big emotions, grand expository dumps from a cast going ALL-IN on their archetypes, etc. It may be far too weird for many, and it gets *weird*, but I wanted Ryme City and the forests around it to swallow me whole. Rob Letterman, John Mathieson, and the prod/VFX teams have created something delightful.

    Video game curse broken. Reynolds rules. Get me a Pikachu. And a Jigglypuff. And that one that serves coffee.

    Man cranked out an all-in 1950s thriller/messy surreal drama and didn't tell anyone, people are gonna be so pissed ha ha ha the twist master does it again !!!

    I agree with every complaint that'll get knocked around upon release (all involved are making some capital-C Choices here)...but I love this
