So I saw the trailer for this a while back, and I was immediately sold on it, so I checked it out and here are my thoughts.
Overall thoughts on this film are that it’s pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I loved Brie Larson and Samuel L Jackson in this, I thought they had really great chemistry with each another, and it’s just so clear how well they get along with one another after doing three films together now. I loved the heart that this film had, and the themes and the messages that underlay it all, and I just loved how fun and breezy it was to watch overall. But let’s break this down a little further.
As I mentioned there I thought Brie Larson was really great in this. Naturally I watched this film not long after Captain Marvel, and I felt like this film really showed how versatile Brie Larson is as an actor, because the whole time I was watching it, I didn’t have Captain Marvel in my head, I just felt like I was watching Brie Larson as Kit, and was believing in that. Similarly linking in with that as well, I felt like we really got to go on a journey with her throughout the film by watching her develop and grow as a character, and I really liked that the film did that as well.
The other stand-out star in this film, is of course Samuel L Jackson, who is equally incredible in this as well. I felt like he played a much softer character here, as opposed to some of the other roles that I’ve seen him play throughout this year so far. But again, much like Brie Larson, I think that just shows how versatile he is as an actor, because I felt like I didn’t have Nick Fury in my head, I felt like I was just watching Samuel L Jackson. And also, if Samuel L Jackson in a pink suit with a big afro and glitter in his hair doesn’t encourage you to watch this movie, then quite simply I don’t know what will.
If I had perhaps one sticking point with the film, it would probably be that had I not watched Adult Life Skills a little while beforehand, then I probably would have enjoyed this a lot more. But at the same time, I do think this had more of fantasy feel to it, as opposed to being really grounded in reality like Adult life Skills, so I guess on that basis, the two films do feel distinct enough to be considered as two different entities.
But all in all though, I thought this was a very fun, breezy film that’s just all round very heart-warming, and one that I would definitely recommend. But now of course I hand it over to you, what did you make of this film? Did you enjoy it as much as I did? Were you perhaps not so keen? Are there any other Netflix movies that you think I should really watch? If so, please do be sure to let me know down in the comments section below, as I would love to hear from you, and be sure to give this article a like as well if you enjoyed it, as I really appreciate it. But apart from that until next time, thanks for reading.
