    Kinda funny sometimes, and not absolutely horrible, but not terribly good either, and surprisingly lacking in substance. I’m not really sure what Fennel is going for here in the end (social commentary? Satire? Homage?

Performances here are solid all around, especially Pike, who is cast excellently.

    Maybe the least successful of the films, but they all operate at such a high level that this one still goes hard. It’s just that this really does sort of feel like a rehash of the first one, with just a toe dipping into darker subject matter, but I love the Aragog puppetry and the breaking Harry out of his room scene.

    This shit rules, lol. It’s wild that throwaway/average Soderbergh films are leagues better than 95% of his peers’ great films.

    Also, KIMI features the only covid-related plotline in film so far that hasn’t made me cringe 👍🏽
