Booksmart is just. . .so good throughout. Until I started writing this, I didn’t even consider there were flaws, but now that I think about it. . .none seem important. It was exhilarating, life-affirming, clever, fun, important. . .non-stop excitement in the cinema.
It all began with the title sequence. They just got straight to it. I guess nobody’s forced me to binge-re-watch Marvel films instead of exploring new stories that are told in different ways, but I was instantly taken with how Olivia Wilde seemed to come to life & grab me by my jacket & throw me on my seat. Quiet, and focus now.
City Screen, my local cinema, promised that ‘Spike Lee directs and gives arguably his best on screen performance’ in Do The Right Thing. I was sold — I mean, BlacKkKlansman blew me away and I’ve wanted to see more of his stuff for ages.
As you can see, I’m working my way to the present from where I left off. For this one, let’s throw it back to 2016, the shittiest year of the decade. Except for Zootopia — and maybe, Snowden? For this post, I’m gonna lend the format from the genius Two Dollar Cinema. Mostly because there were some yays, some boos and not much inbetween.
I'm back to blogging after a two-year hiatus to focus on my studies. I didn't have Netflix for the first 17 years of my life, so I'm now eagerly catching up. I don't do drugs, but I do enjoy my films with a cold can of Coke. More about me.
It's the fantastic taste of Coke… but there's more. You'd drink this film until the end of times.
Great taste, fizzy and thoroughly enjoyable. Awesome!
It was good. Sure, it was good. But I thought it would be so much better.
I could have lived all my life without knowing this exists. Minimal kick.
Just like Diet Coke, this film was fake and horrible. Truly absymal to the point where it's insulting.
