    We are just so weird aren't we.

    Society, humanity, and humans on a level of reason makes a lot of sense. The way we have evolved and they systems we have built around us to support this evolution all adds up from a technical standpoint. But when viewed objectively, from far away or up close, it is. Just. So. Weird.

    From the clothes we as a society collectively decide as "in", to the cars we drive, and the buildings we…

    ★★★★

    Went into this kind of just expecting it to be a prep movie for the so called “Goat” Paddington 2. But this was actually really great. 

    It’s a lot of fun for a kids movie both in story and in overall presentation. It’s familiar yet felt really creative within the margins it’s working in. 

    The final act of this is kinda intense too. I don’t know if I’m remembering my childhood properly but I feel like the kids movies I have seen recently all have borderline traumatizing conflicts in them. 

    Honestly, I’m really hyped for Paddington 2 now if it’s supposed to be even better.

    Alright I’m going to need you to say that all again one more time. 

    Something about memory, I’m not sure. The film basically locks you in infinite looping purgatory. No chance to get your footing at all before you mind is thrown into a blender. 

    And I’m not mad about it at all. Haven’t seen anything quite like this before and I have to respect the approach to surrealism from the jump. It’s almost reassuring in a way because it…

    I mean outside of the editing, acting, plot, script, and horror, it's pretty good!

    ★★★½

    Was it a little cheesy, yes. Was it a little overdramatic, definitely. Was the editing a little distracting, yeah.

    Was I engaged and entertained the whole time, you bet.

    The Trail of the Chicago 7 is a very "movie" movie and a crowd pleaser but it never really claims to be anything different. With a screenplay that fires on all cylinders and strong performances all around it is definitely the most gripping and engaging film of the year.
