i got tired of using a twitter thread to post my thoughts
follow me on twitter, i talk about Beyoncé more there
every single line delivery from dakota johnson is so surreal, im borderline obsessed with her performance just because every choice she made was so bizarre. movie in general tho… not a single hinged moment. the credits rolled and i bust out laughing. kind of mad we didnt get more of the spider women, they baited me
i loved the set up and the starting point of the plot so much, but when it kept going and going my smile kind of faded. not necessarily for plot reasons, the plot mostly works for me, but the pacing and plot structure is where it loses me. could’ve used an overall edit. anyways, i still liked it a bit, clearly. Angela Bassett is fantastic, the ensemble in general is just great. Whoopi was great here. Taye Diggs 😻 he worked well with Mother Angela. Regina King!!!
i have not read the book
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
this is literally already definitive the teen movie of the 2020s. a new standard set. i was obsessed from beginning, middle and to the end. 30 year olds playing 17 year olds will always be valid to me and to top it all off Sarah Michelle Gellar had a minor role. no complaints, no notes. the plot and the twists in the third act are already ✨cinema✨. Camila Mendes and Rish Shah are so famous to me, Maya Hawke is changing the game for nepotism babies everywhere
