    The Meaning of Life

    ★★★★

    Monty Python has always had a clear handle on the essential comic techniques. But somehow is still able to create a completely new genre and expanding the medium of what we think is possible in comedy to crap that works just because it works. But it's where this film is able to separate itself from films like The Holy Grail by exploring philosophical questions and themes in an easily digestible way by the usage of the absurdism that provokes your mind once the film is finished... at least for me cause my dad just kept quoting the 'funny lines' once it was over.

    This is one of the hardest movies I've ever had to watch but ended up being the most worth it thing in the end for how much I felt during this.

    My preconceived notions about this went as far as Spirited Away just cause I had no outside sources to help me what to expect. But all it took was for a guy to get decapitated and I was so on board after that!
    Dare I say this is more beautifully animated than other Miyazaki films? Idk. All I can say is this is some of the best choreographed and engaging action sequences I've seen in an animated film.

    ★★★½

    Yeah sure it's messy as my plate after spaghetti night, but I couldn't care less.
    It has by far the best usage of music in any Marvel film. Specifically The Chain: having it being the only song appear twice in the film, both being incorporated with the context of 'the chain' being broken; the family Peter chose then rejected, and then the family he was born from then realizing the people who accept him are his true family. Wonderfully cathartic in ways most these Marvel films aren't.

    ★★★★

    I still can't get over the ending when Groot freezes in place so that Drax doesn't see him dancing. It gives such a deep and understanding essence to his character because of the disregard Drax finds in dancing due to the remembrance of his wife's way of thinking.
    As far as superhero flicks go this is pretty high up there.
    On to Vol.2!

    ★★½

    It's the movie you find yourself chuckling every 30 minutes then realizing it's over and wondering to yourself how much better this premise would be without the 'Seth Rogen' writing.

    Congrats Luke! If you haven't check it out already please do! I always love giving credit to creators who really try and you can see it in this. It was very well edited somehow (please Luke, teach me your ways at making a mocumentary well edited). And was quite funny actually. I love the style of it and UHHHGGG it was such a joy to watch. Please give it a go!

    I've never seen a romance so convoluted, so unsure, so completely devoid of meaning and soul. It was my turn to pick what movie my family watched tonight I chose this??? I could've chosen The Revenant, or The Help but no I chose this.
    THANKS WOODY ALLEN

    "it's Ulysses"
    "it's... Ulysses?"
    "Ulysses"
    "that's it's name?"

    I'm going to refrain from going into my full thoughts about this because... come on. This is a film that hits in the exact right way at the exact right time. Coincidence? I think not.
    I still have to process what it means to me, cause no lie, that's a journey in itself. But the amount this film is going to change the way I look at things is just... indescribable.
