Cynicus RexI probably love this film in another universe. 12 months ago
baraka92Man! I haven't been this disappointed in a while. I'll start with something positive. Michelle Yeoh is amazing, but my MVP is Ke Huy Quan. Both deserve nothing but praise though.
I was onboard with this movie. The first hour is a blast! The concept, the characters, the story and the comedy blend perfectly, but you can get too much of a good thing. This is another case of ADD filmaking ala Michel Gondry; it’s no coincidence that him and the Daniels started their careers doing music videos. Cool tricks and stuff are entertaining for 3-4 minutes but for 2+ hours it becomes tiresome.
My main problems were two big ones. First, the humor. The movie throws you a talking raccoon, sausage fingers, googly eyes, b*tt plugs, dildos, a weapon dog, etc. It's kinda funny at first but by the 10th quirky thing it becomes boring; and it gets worse when these elements start to get in the way of the most emotional scenes. I mean, it's an extreme example but there's a reason why you don't see a pie in the face in the middle of Schindler's List. Let the emotion be, dammit!
All this while the movie also gives you an endless string of fights. Again, fun at first...
Second, the message. The familly stuff and the end was touching but on a bigger level, I don't buy its antidote to nihilism. I personally don't believe this, but within the meaningless universe of the film, between the bagel (eye roll) and "be kind" I see no difference. Everything ends up in the same place... so why would anyone care. It's pretty much Camus' Sisyphus, which I always took as a cop out.
So, Everything Everywhere All at Once? Indeed! And it's quite numbing. 11 months 3 weeks ago
devilsadvocadoI went into this one expecting to enjoy it because 1) I thought the trailer was wild 2) I love unconventional storytelling, 3) the Daniels seem to share my sense of humor, and 4) the overwhelming good reviews.
But oh, how let down I was...
I'm still trying to wrap words around why I disliked this movie so much. As much as I am a fan of weird, out-there, complex and unconventional movies, without grounded storytelling to make the emotional content accessible I'm unable to come along for the ride.
I think this movie was just the Daniels trying to force a concept and a bunch of weird ideas and jokes but not being able to form an organic and compelling narrative around them.
So, visually awesome, super creative, and sometimes funny but a flimsy narrative that failed to hook me (or my two theater companions). 1 year ago
