It was a solidly made film with some great actors giving it their all, but the intentions behind the script rang false.
This is a very enjoyable family film that doesn’t need subtle, subversive adult humor to make the adults have just as much fun as the kids. The pace is perfect, the message is strong and the fun never stops. This is a surefire winner, another home run for Laika.
Some of the wildest animals were never meant to be tamed. And some of them may just end up taming us.
It’s wonderful that, after so long trying to get this film off the ground, it is fully allowed to truly soar.
Julianne Moore deserves a ton of credit and makes the final scene feel epic in its own way after the story that’s been told, but she was the diamond in a bit of rough.
This is a decent enough holdover while we all wait for Endgame, if you’re the type who can’t get enough superhero action.
Much like Paul Greengrass with last year’s 22 July, Maras drops us right into the center of the action and barely lets his foot off the gas long enough to let the audience catch its breath over the course of two hours.
This is a certified classic and a worthy remake of its source.
We rank the best film adaptations from Stephen King’s writing.
Speaking volumes about the nature vs nurture debate and inviting you to think deeply on the subject, it’s the kind of emotionally-wrecking film that will be difficult to revisit, but demands to be appreciated.
Christian Petzold presents us with something that looks sunny and bright, despite seriously dark implications. It’s a bold film in that regard because it always keeps you guessing about what you’re seeing.
Costner and Harrelson certainly have a curmudgeonly chemistry about them, but there is depth left on the table that is only hinted at, and never truly explored.
With three feature films to his credit, Neill Blomkamp has proven to have a distinct visual style and a flare for science fiction stories that, while told in futuristic settings, draw a lot of parallels to our world and our time.
Shane has earned its status as a classic and this certainly won’t be the only time I watch this film.
Perhaps it’s a warning against taking life too seriously. Or maybe it’s just about getting high, having sex and enjoying a good poem.
