    Movies are so good guys. It’s crazy that this is Haim and Hoffman’s first films, they are both so terrific. Both steal scenes and are incredibly likable right off the bat. The opening scene of the film just drew me in. Anderson directs this confidently, and all the small vignettes were all fantastic. Cooper’s Jon Peters specifically captured the essence of all the stories I’ve heard of him. He’s only on screen for thirty seconds but his sequence leaves quite…

    It’s cute. There are a few problems with the third act, and the reveal didn’t work for me, but the animation and rest of the plot is fantastic. The movie is very funny and has a lot of heart. The voice work was well done. I liked the mix of 2D and 3D animation, both sides of the film looked good respectively. It’s a crowd pleaser, and is certainly hard not to enjoy. It’s not my favorite film from Hosoda but it’s a solid entry in his filmography. I recommend this one, hoping it gets some awards buzz for animated.

    I wasn’t told I couldn’t review this movie so….

    I found myself, midway through the movie, almost forgetting that this was a Marvel movie. Aside from a few (fairly crucial) references and characters, this does feel like it’s own film. It is by far not the best film in the MCU, it falls into a lot of their cliches regarding plot structure, but it’s done really well. The action, as you might expect, is incredibly choreographed. It isn’t as strong…
