    Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    ★★★★½

    This is such a fun and lighthearted film. I love this one so much and I could probably watch these characters for four more films. The writing is really good and flows well. The only things I have a problem with is that the antagonist is a bit simple and that there isn't much weight or gravity to the situations. But I can really look past that because I thought this was great.

    This was a fantastic film and it felt so bizarre watching it. Ari Aster keeps making classics and I don't see him stopping anytime soon. I loved the cinematography and most of the performances. Everything looked beautiful and all the characters felt like real people with flaws that made sense. I thought the movie dragged at a few points and the story could have had another revision or two, but besides that I really enjoyed it. If you are on the fence with this one and you enjoyed Hereditary, check this out but be prepared for a completely different experience.

I really enjoyed the change of pace with different sceneries and locations. It's really a breath of…

    ★★★★½

    I thought this film was fantastic. When I watched "It Follows", I thought it was ok, and I did like the atmosphere but I thought the story and characters could use some work. This one had me stunned from start to finish. There are so many films, even favorites of mine, that have moments where the pacing dips and then I check my watch. I did not want to turn this film off at any point. There are so many…
