    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★★

    believe it or not this is my first time ever hearing the tragedy of Macbeth in any capacity. I didn’t know a single event or character or anything beforehand. that being said I can’t really compare this to anything since I’ve neither read the original play nor seen any other adaptation of it.

    still, it’s easily the best-looking film of the year, and the performances are amazing. when Denzel goes into theatre actor mode I am utterly hypnotized (a la…

    Jack Black absolutely bodies this role. I first saw this over 5 years ago and I still think it’s his best performance out of everything I’ve seen from him

    Very solid all around but Simon Rex really takes it to the next level, talk about a perfect casting. Really excited that he’s getting well-deserved praise and new roles from this!

    Hmmmmmm…

    Not really understanding the mega hype. Usually in this situation, I feel like I missed something that everyone else sees so I wanna try and watch it again, but here… I feel like I get what this movie is doing and I’m just not a huge fan. I like aimless movies but this one feels sort of aimless in its aimlessness to me. Still think it’s great!

    Holy mother of god, does this hold up on rewatch. It’s fantastic, so many of the ideas and tie-backs that Lana Wachoswki pulls off are just utterly genius. It’s not a perfect movie, the action is pretty average and some of the exposition / explanations can get a bit wordy and hard to follow, but when it comes to the core ideas and the execution it’s just spectacular. The performances and emotions are beyond what I would ever expect from…
