I first watched this back in 1982. Loved it then and have loved it ever since.
Tonight I watched the 4K restoration released by canal in England.
Wow, what a great transfer. Really impressive. Still love every frame.
Stone cold classic. An economy of story telling with taut direction from a master of the genre. Rewatching this on the 4K reissue I was amazed by the cinematography and iconic shot selection and music cues.
A masterclass on how much can be done with so little. I also forgot just how little gore and blood there actually was. Amazing.
As ali Wong fans, my wife and I were very excited to see this - until we actually did.
While, it was a pleasant enough romantic comedy with a few laughs, one or two emotional beats that work and the charm and charisma of the leads, it suffers from a painfully cliched and poorly written script.
It’s great that Netflix makes old school romantic comedies these days, I just wish theyd make better ones.
I’d say Ali Wong deserves better,…
Enjoyed this more than I expected and it was great to see Nicole Beharie for the first time since Sleepy Hollow.
I felt the issues it addressed were very interesting in the age of anonymous avatars. I just wish it had explored the concept and ramifications a bit deeper.
Ending did lack some resonance and felt abrupt.
