They've been doing one HP movie a year here. We're up to Prisoner of Azkaban this year. In addition to the Star Wars trilogy, we've seen Raiders of the Lost Ark but missed E.T.My husband has seen at least two of the Star Wars movies at the symphony. I'm not much for Star Wars, but a friend and I jumped at the chance to see Little Mermaid. I was really impressed with how the live score impacted the movie. I will definitely see other movie performances. I think the Harry Potter movies would lend themselves well to the format, too.
I thought she went through a nice character arc, finding fulfillment in her own way in the end. Not much different than Rushmore, if you think about it. These character-driven stories are rarely about plot, rather, development. I really liked it.Finally got to see Ladybird a couple of nights ago.
My initial impression after it was over that it reminded me of a combination of the Coen Bros and an early Wes Anderson flick. It was superb technically and the acting was great. I also felt that it captured that period of time better without being overly nostalgic.
My own complaint and it isn't really a complaint against the film but more a statement about me, is that I kept waiting for "something" to happen.
We saw it yesterday too & liked it a lot. Almost identical to the original. It had a few new jokes that kept it a little fresh, a little more character development for Nala and was beautifully done. My 15yo (who probably watched the original 100 times from age 3 to 5 and insisted we call her Simba half the time back then) and her 13yo sister both declared it a success.Six of us saw Lion King today...4 of which were children ages 6 & 7. Everyone loved it! My son proclaimed it was the best movie and was so glad we saw it on his 6 1/2 birthday. My mom and I teared up several times and we hope to see it again. The audience as a whole was very diverse in ages and every one was singing the movies praises as we all left the theatre.

outrageous, disorientating, irresponsible, and also brilliant
Big, brash, ridiculous, too long, and in the end invigorating
I really enjoyed it too, meandering plot and all. It's very much Tarantino's view of late-60s Hollywood, and says a lot about his (presumed) belief in the power of movies and TV. It is very much a fairy tale, as evidenced by the title, and the period detail is exceptional. I found it challenging and fun.I saw Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. I'm not sure how to talk about the film because a significant part of my thoughts/feelings on it revolved around a central aspect of it.
I actually wrote a vague review here. When I read it back, I was concerned it said too much, so I removed it.
I can see now why Tarantino kept talking about Inglorious Basterds in interviews leading up to this film release. I didn't understand that before seeing it, but it makes sense now.
I tend to avoid reading reviews before I see something, but sometimes check after. Here are a couple of quotes from reviews I thought were funny.
Fairy tale and love letter were phrases that kept coming to mind while I watched and after. It felt different from Tarantino's movies in a way I can't describe but definitely experienced.I really enjoyed it too, meandering plot and all.
