“You can’t let your father’s mistakes define who you are. You get to decide what kind of king you are going to be.”
Awful script, story, and visual effects; as much as it hurts to say, if this weren’t such a great display of black acting talent there’s no way this film would garner any praise at all.
“All the best memories are hers.”
Exceptionally beautiful, and a far greater accomplishment than the original, occasionally slow but never boring or disengaging, a triumph — Villeneuve is the best director working today.
“Hard work pays off.”
There’s something so inspirational, energetic, and edge-of-your-seat engaging about the Crossfit documentaries, and this is the best one yet — a taught behind the scenes look at the 2017 Crossfit Games following the front-runners as they battle for gold.
“Every human being is a puzzle of need. You must become the missing piece, and they will tell you anything.”
Pleasantly surprised by this, a film for adults that doesn’t shy away from it’s subject matter, a complex and violent story about the real Russian Sparrows and the type of undercover work they did (do?) for the Russian government — a film that feels dangerous and outside the norm despite looking conventional in so many ways.
