    Free Guy

    ★★★½

    Okay, so loooong time since I've posted on here, due to some general demotivation, but, I'm feeling somewhat spry again so let's have at it!

    Free Guy was something I disregarded as being tacky and cheesy as hell, which I'm sure it can be to a degree, but I was surprised at how genuinely fun of a watch it was. As someone who is a pretty regular 'gamer' (don't...I shrink at the word), there was a lot of 'heh' moments,…

    ★★★★

    I’ll be honest, I might not have watched this if it weren’t for my infatuation with Tom Holland…I’ll keep the simping to a minimum.

    Really though, this was a damn solid movie, especially for something that came out of Netflix - I’m looking at you Kissing Booth. Plot-wise it can feel a little slow and it lacks an overarching voice and/or message, but, from what I interpreted it’s about karma and the toxic sides of religion, masculinity, and the abuse…
