- Very, very, very fun.
- Definitely one of my favorite Marvel films ever, even though I hated Thor as a character and a premise.
- Visually amazing – from the production design, to the cinematography, just a blast in all directions.
- “Fun” but doesn’t feel tedious or tacky despite the over the top sensibilities.
- The world building is ace.
- The comedic beats are awkward, snappy and genuine in ways that humanized all the characters, even Cate Blancett’s deliciously villainous character, Hela.
- Appreciated all the physical, vaudeville comedy.
- All the acting was great! Except maybe Mark Ruffalo who seemed to have had way too much fun to care.
Director: Ruben Östlund
Cinematographer: Fredrik Wenzel
- It’s getting kind of weird that I’ve unintentionally been seeing films that explore the toxicity and fragility of male masculinity.
- Beautifully shot. The way the film looks help elevate the sense of discomfort and isolation.
- Children are scary, but also realizing that you are stuck in a relationship and had built your entire structure of self-worth around an unreliable person is scarier.
- This movie brings out a lot of droning anxieties around the prospect of a nuclear family.
- A very dark movie in ways that get under your skin slowly, the fact that it’s very aesthetically pleasing really helps make it a little more terrifying.
Director: Greta Gerwig
Cinematographer: Sam Levy
- Went to see this without expectations, and was surprised at how lovely this film was.
- Omg, Laurie Metcaif.
- Took the feelings of its characters seriously, with some levity. It juggled ingenuity, bitterness and humor really well.
- The scene where Danny cries holding Lady Bird after she took out the trash at the cafe is really great.
- Really good cast in general.
