jocey’s review published on Letterboxd:
Taika Waititi is such a charming director that I think he makes everyone look charming just by association.
This movie is weird! It’s a patchwork of very good comedy moments and beautifully executed fight sequences, but with such a behemoth franchise on its shoulders you lose a little bit of the heart of Waititi’s other movies. Still the vibrancy of this movie shines through. Really excellent, bright score and equally bright colors. Cate Blanchett is a fox. Idris Elba is a fox. This cast is really unreal, and it seems like every actor had a good time on this set.
Overall, what a fun addition to Waititi’s body of work, and I can’t wait for the next one, and I hope the next one isn’t a franchise. Plz leave him alone, Star Wars.
