    A wicked, sumptuous delight. Three amazing performances, prominent music, a great script... and Horatio, the fastest duck in the city!!!!! 🦆

    ★★★½

    Bananas, in the best way. Artistic, inventive, and with an insane amount of world-building. The choices are bold (Eddie Redmayne has devoured everything in sight) and don't always work (Mila Kunis is bland as heck), but it's certainly A VISION with great ideas and grand aspirations. It's really a shame we'll never get another one, because I think there's a lot to love and great places these characters could be taken.

    Powerful, edge-of-your-seat tense, beautiful, sad and somber. Excellent.

    A pitch-perfect balancing act between High School bullshit, surviving traumatic events, and the sweetness of first love. Excellently acted, confidently directed. Deserves to be seen wide and far, and become a classic. A YA romcom with blood.

    I Used to Go Here

    Very charming, funny, and relatable for anyone wrestling with fitting the pieces of their life together in ways that feel truthful: your own authenticity of who you want to be; fondness for your past, without losing yourself in nostalgia; and finding honesty because of or in spite of other's perceptions of you.

    A great cast, and a familiar indie-film feel -- fits like a cozy sweater.

    Really, really lovely. Gorgeous animation: style and skill. One of the best scores of the year AND fantastic jazz, throughout. Hopeful and inspiring, even in its melancholy. Directing, acting... Just great, across the board.


    I don’t think this is top-shelf Pixar, but I understand why everyone likes it. And truly I want to re-watch it.
