    Bob Marley: One Love

    ★★½

    Honestly I mostly watched this because I love Lashana Lynch and Kingsley Ben-Adir, and they did not disappoint!! But the movie as a whole was just a typical music biopic. I will say it was more willing to show Bob Marley’s flaws than I expected after the film was introduced by his son.

    I really want to see what others seen in the Dune films, but they are just not for me. I recognize the beautiful craftsmanship and fantastic performances, but I just find these films to be so long and boring. I know that Villeneuve has stated he prioritizes the visual element of filmmaking over dialogue, and I feel the opposite. I did like it more than the first part though!

    I still don’t know how I feel about this…but I am glad Ari Aster was able to make it! He is a great storyteller and really got to show the world how funny he is in this movie. Both Ari and a representative from A24 emphasized how proud they are of the movie, and this made me very excited to finally watch it. I can’t wait to see the reactions when this releases and the different ways people will interpret…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    When the daughter talked about how her biological father had been her gyno I threw up in my mouth.
