    As someone in recovery with a restaurant background who is easily impressed by one-takes, oof. Way to make a movie designed to punch specifically me in the face.

    The Alex G score is great, love the idea, Central performance is strong. Didn’t resonate with me personally. 

    Delete the internet, tho.

    The rated R Ratatouille we didn’t know we needed. It’s pretentious and on-the-nose in how it calls out pretense but then it folds back on itself and calls that out, too. 

    I cried twice and I have no idea why (it’s not that kind of movie, I need therapy). 

    Bravo. (I never say “bravo” out loud, I don’t know why I wrote that).

    So, this is the best movie I’ve ever seen. It’s Citizen Candy Cane. It’s 200 proof Christmas Spirits. It sleighs all the competition. High octane, jolly old Saint Ridiculous. I loved it.
