    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★½

    Aaron Sorkin is way too good a writer to be forced to work with such a mediocre director as Aaron Sorkin

    it's the battle of the safdie brothers versus robert pattinson. the pair of directors are out to make you despise the titular connie nikas, establishing the character as a familial abuser, a statutory rapist, and all-around selfish criminal lowlife; robert pattinson is working his hardest to get you on his side. {similar to leo in the wolf of wall street,} his performance is so commanding, so powerful, that even though we know him succeeding is the worst possible outcome, we…

    ★★½

    incredibly imaginative but mostly incoherent, it's an intriguing failure but a failure nonetheless. filled with ambition, ideas, and broodingly gorgeous animation, it never escapes the feeling of unoriginality. the setting is basically just an animated version of the world from terminator and the dialogue, despite the talented cast of voice-actors, is stilted at best. to be completely honest I don't understand why anyone bothers making post-apocalyptic animated films anymore since cars 2 was obviously the ultimate peak of this hyperspecific subgenre. 9? I'd say it's more like 5.

    Everyone who hasn't seen the film: BLIND OUTRAGE, because taking a stance against pedophilia is so easy. Desperation for internet popularity and to be seen as a hero, disguised as righteous offense based exclusively on the harmful promotional material released by Netflix.

    Everyone who has actually seen the film and therefore has the right to have an opinion about it: a coming of age story about a young girl trying to balance the values of her cultural upbringing with the…
