    The Farewell shows us, just as The Big Sick had, that the best comedies come from tradgedy. The film is absolutely hilarious but often heart-wrenching and the cinematography really brings out both of these sides extremely well. 

    The grandma’s performance was so great it no longer felt like acting.

    I literally had to hold myself for the last 20mins. I don’t think I’ll ever be the same.

    Really fun and suprisingly very funny. Ready Player One captures the Spielberg wonder, yet not without some stumbles. The first 15 minutes are almost all voice-over exposition which definitely could’ve been done another way, but once you get past that the film really finds its groove. The live-action bits are perhaps where the film shines the brightest. And the cast has tons of chemistry both in and out of the game. 

    For those worried about it simply being a nostalgia…

    You are not prepared. This movie is absolutely fucking terrifying. Like holy shit. The sound design, the characters, the emotional turmoil for both the characters and the audience. There are so many layers. 

    Yeah. Heads will roll.
