    So uhhh....we're just going to let Taika do literally anything he wants going forward right? I haven't seen anything of his that I didn't thoroughly enjoy or laugh out loud at.

    WOWWW! Why did it take me this long to watch this? I love everything I've seen from Taika and this is no exception. His timing is just so good. And his brain is so perfectly insane. So many things I loved about this. That Haka Thriller at the end was honestly the best credits sequence!

    Strong vibes off of Taika's short Two Cars, One Night. Really liked that there isn't really a story, but just life unfolding and Boy seeing the man he's built up for who he is. I thought it was really well done. Definitely going to do a rewatch.

    Well fuck me that was so good! We've had many time loop films over the years, and it's hard for the concept to feel fresh, but Jesus this film was amazing. Think Groundhog Day on a coke bender in Palm Springs.

    There are so many good things about this film, from the directing, to the writing, and the beautiful visuals, but honestly the performances stand out most for me. The chemistry between Samberg and Milioti was amazing and so fun.…

    Jesus fucking Christ, that was an experience! Sandler is unbelievable in this role.

    I also enjoyed explaining all of the Passover traditions to my non-Jewish friends.
