Will Smith didn’t let me down on this one.
Gotta love that Marvel charm, damnit Stan Lee. Why you gotta leave us so soon?
The reviews of this film led me to the theater with the lowest of expectations. What was presented was the origin story of Captain Marvel that did not follow the usual rules of origin stories (thankfully). Also, it was leagues above another female superhero of late *ahemWonderWoman*.
And who knew I needed a Nick Fury origin story so bad?
Take me back to the 90’s.
Entirely worth the wait.
A story that rips the heart out of America’s south and lets it beat on screen for 130 minutes. Taking two characters from entirely different backgrounds and allows them to feed off each other with some of the best chemistry I’ve seen on screen in years. The plethora of emotions this film conveys takes you from feeling like a sympathetic racial drama...to being the most heartwarming feel good movie of the year.
If Ali is snubbed for his performance, no matter how great Driver was in BlacKkKlansman, I will be disappointed.
I was afraid this film would not live up to the hype that surrounds it.
I am so glad I was wrong.
From the beautiful wide-angle shot of Jack and Ally sitting outside of the Super A Foods convenience store, to the final close-up as we are forced to stare into Ally's eyes...This film is a masterpiece.
Bradley Cooper's directoral debut left no room for disappointment. I can't wait to see more.
If I didn't fall in love with Lady…
“For you, every hour is the darkest hour.”
This was everything unexpected and more.
An undeniably haunting account of the deterioration of the world with a deep religious backbone...All being delivered by Ethan Hawk’s award-deserving performance.
90% of the movie I felt as if I was witnessing a soul in limbo, taking notice of the sins of the world, understanding, & moving forward by exposing the deterioration that came from within.
A24 does it again.
