Hunt for the Wilderpeople

Hunt for the Wilderpeople ★★★★


This was just a very fun movie to watch. Funny at times, heartfelt at other times. It was a pleasant watch. Thor: Ragnarok is in good hands. 

Taika Watiti uses framing and editing for humor sometimes. It reminded me a lot of Edgar Wright's style. There are also many funny lines like the Sarah Conner joke and such. 

The two lead characters play off eachother well. Rhys Darby and Taika Watiti himself show up for a few laughs in the movie. Every character in this film has at least one joke.

The movie has this sort of fast paced energy to it that was enjoyable. However I also never really got a concept of time passed. This film takes place over the course of a couple months but I didn't feel that weight of time. 

Overall, it's a really good funny movie.
