This happened to my buddy Eric.
I get that some people might think the point of this movie is "instagram bad" but I actually thought most of its social media skewering was pretty good. But plot wasn't really why I was invested here.
Even with the dark stuff and tough parts, this movie is basically five actors (Aubrey, O'Shea, my girl Lizzie of course, Wyatt Russell, and my GUY Billy Magnussen) that are right near the top of Matty Mo's list of favorites and man does that make me happy. Enjoyed this a lot. Could watch those five do anything and dig it.
I’m giving it five stars. I’m not sure if I want to give it five stars or I feel like I’m supposed to give it five stars, but it deserves it. Bernstein was amazing and the first hour fifteen was a real heater.
No matter how you feel about this movie, it is the Great American Novel, plain and simple. If you disagree, feel free to @ me. I welcome it.
Pretty fantastic watch here. The cast was absolutely amazing—a ton you recognize from their other work, but they’re worthy not just because you’ve seen em before. Every performance (except maybe Marty Sheen doin some weird prosthetic work) was incredible.
Also a vital watch historically and as a political/moral/social gut check. Yeah maybe Sorkin made his story (Chicago 7) easier for the whites to watch, but this is so supremely more important. Not a question that this movie should be vying for all the awards this year, and I hope it makes everybody watch it.
Also, oscars won’t do it but lakeith and Kaaluya should both win.
