"For most of our history, we knew the Earth was the center of the universe. We killed and tortured people for saying otherwise. That is, until we discovered that the Earth is actually revolving around the Sun, which is just one sun out of trillions of suns. And look at us, trying to deal with the fact that all of that exists inside of one universe out of who knows how many...And who knows what great discovery is coming next…
"I will avenge you, Father! I will save you, Mother! I will kill you, Fjölnir!"
After a strong start with The VVitch and The Lighthouse, Robert Eggers stepped up where most filmmakers and visionary storytellers failed as the tale of revenge and fate unfolds through the years of experiences of the protagonist of the epic feature film, Amleth.

This quote ironically isn't translated into the execution of Jerry & Marge Go Large as the majority of the characters are as hollow and empty as the small town they live in. Cranston and Bening together were the best parts, bringing about fun and heart in their characters, establishing one of the infinitesimally few things I cared about in this feature film.
Enter the messy personal struggles of a successful Cuban-American self-made architect Billy as he juggles a failing marriage and the sudden bombshell that is his older daughter Sofia's engagement to the son of a Mexican tycoon. Father of the Bride brings a couple of issues that other ethnically rich forms of media bring, one of them being the generational gaps between the characters, which brings about a clash between conservative "old-fashioned" traditions and personal preferences that can seem difficult for…
