average film enjoyer
aside from the absurd characterization of indian people, white savior plot, and gigachad indiana jones this movie is honestly a lot of fun
like knowing this is spielberg and lucas working at pretty much the peak of their powers and seeing how well directed the action sequences are show exactly how great these talents are.
grew up loving indiana homes and always thought this was my least favorite, but after this viewing i honestly love how dark this was.
i’ve been itching to watch this and i’m so happy i did! watching this movie i feel like i can relate a lot to situations the family is put it & even how Awkwafina’s character feels about it.
Props to Lulu Wang on directing this without bending for studios, i really respect how she told her story.
Idk if it’s just me, but i also felt like a lot of the framing in the movie was intentionally put in the lower 3rd of frame since the movie’s 90% subtitles.
cute and quirky movies are definitely in my movie taste palette and this was really fun to watch. for some reason reminded me of coen brothers work ? great music, outstanding performance by adam sandler, and a fun story.
two things come to mind now & that’s
- i want chocolate pudding
- what does that suit smell like bro
