    Unicorn Store

    ★★★★½

    watching unicorn store, i was struck by how plausible kit's plan to adopt her dream childhood pet seemed to me. not once did i doubt the mysterious store or the eccentric salesman, and the outlandish nature of her goal and the actions taken to achieve it only became apparent in the concerned expressions on her parents and her friend's faces. i think this believability is a testament to brie larson's central performance, which is equal parts joyful and sad, offbeat…

    ★★★½

    i liked this a lot more on second watch but i guess i still don't love it as much as everyone else does? the soundtrack is overwhelming and it gives me a headache and it's always disappointing to be reminded of the way edgar wright writes women, but on the plus side jon hamm is extremely hot. insightful review as always, i know, thanks

    ★★★½

    there's just SO much deliciously over the top drama here. sharpay and ryan literally looking down on their fellow students like despotic leaders during the stick to the status quo number? excellent. "EVERYBODY QUIET!"? the way mrs. darbus pronounces the word "musical"? both extremely iconic. the wildcats engineering a full blown intervention to get their team captain out of musical theater? kind of understandable, actually. gabriella singing a depressing ballad and wandering the halls like a lost soul after getting…
