Started this year watching straight out fires, to watching this burning mess. But honestly it was always gonna be a mess, so instead of being overly critical of everything I for once just decided to have a fun time with the concept. So although stupid and unoriginal as hell, it does not come close to being Fantasy Island levels of bad and boring.
Loved every minute of it :)
Now it's time to watch more Bo Burnham's work
I get the critisicm some have for this special (about humour, self awareness) but honestly it represents much more for me. As the songs progressed they felt more chaotic and that's just how the world hits you. The dreaded anxiety of being incomparable to whatever new trend is on, the news or you just being behind in life with your hands tied. It feels like shit.
But at least Bo seems to be fine, his beard was defo shorter at the final song.
I've had a long and exhausting bad day. I needed to sleep and it just so happened I had to stop the film to get some sleep. I would've definitely loved the film even more without that.
Fallen Angels is a romantic action film filled with great character inner thoughts that riled me up and made me feel some things I can't explain, things I've never really thought I'd feel. It's an action film like no other action film, and…
"Your son opened my eyes to how much hatred can be in this world. And it scarred me for life. He's dead, I'm alive. He's free, I'm not."
Denis Villeneuve knows how to make a 77-minute film tear you to pieces. There are so many movies about real life tragedies yet this one just hits so hard. Women who were just living their life and working hard towards a bright future and everything was taken away from them. I'm not going to be able to recover for a while after watching this. I didn't cry but it disturbed me on such a higher level.
