    ★★★½

    What a cute little gem of a movie! Growing up, I read the book so many times that I remember every character in the story, and the boa constrictor swallowing an elephant/hat song was hilarious. On that note, I do wish there were less singing and more good acting.

    Better than last time I saw it, but I'm still unsure as to whether it deserved the Best Picture Oscar...

    Some shots in this movie are gut-wrenching. This movie feels transparent, like it's not trying to lie to you, which means it's either totally honest or extremely good at lying—both of which are incredible feats. I wish I could rewatch it again for the first time.

    I don’t give a shit about the original novel or how much Norton changed the story, I really fucking don’t.

    Despite being pretty vague about who exactly is the enemy and whether he ends up sticking it to The Man, I loved it. The acting was great (except Bruce Willis’—of course), the cinematography was good enough, the script itself was very good too.

    Thank you Edward.
