    The CGI robot is hilarious. I couldn’t believe it looked that bad. Though I’m happy it did, because laughing at it was the highlight of the movie.

    This film is nonsense. Though, I was glad to hear that the people behind me in the theatre were enjoying it. After every plot twist I heard one of them go “oh wow...oh wow...” because they clearly couldn’t believe how blindsided they were by the engrossing story.  

    The characters are lifeless, the acting…

    This review has spoilers in it, so beware...but does it matter? Do you REALLY want to see this? Like actually? Look me in my digital eyes 👀 and honestly tell me you want to see A Dog’s Way Home. I assure you that you don’t.

    Damien Chazelle does it again, this time making an intense, and often poignant film, about Neil Armstrong. I liked Gosling’s performance in this; however, I really liked Claire Foy’s performance, even though she was in it for less of the runtime.

    I absolutely loved the choice to make this film as personal as possible, giving us plenty of grainy closeups of faces, keeping many of the shots as tight…

    “The fear of becoming prey keeps both of them alive.” 

    Yoooooo, this is exactly what I wanted the film to be. I thought it was extremely entertaining and I found it to be a lot of fun. I’ll try to keep it as vague as possible, but here are some thoughts on it:
