Review: June Movies
When Marnie Was There
Re-watch? Probably no
I liked this movie but I wanted to really like it. I was expecting something a bit more... magical? The story was good, well it got really good near the end but most of it was a bit slow. (not a bad thing, just a fact) I remember when the movie first came out people were saying how it was a movie about being gay, but it wasn't at all. Just some of the things said and some actions came off a bit strange but at the end it all makes sense. I'm glad I saw this movie but I don't think I'll even need to see it again.
I was SO excited for this movie! I loved it. The dinosaurs looked good, the story was decent... lots of nods to the first movie, Jurassic Park. (which I loved). I feel like everyone's seen this movie already but if you haven't yet... and you liked Jurassic Park, then go see this one!
When I first heard what this movie was about, I was like... I can't wait to see how they do this! Very interesting concept. I love how they are thinking outside the box on this one. And it was so good! I cried. Like, sometimes movies make me tear up.... and once in a while I'll shed one single tear. But once in a blue moon I'll actually cry. And I don't even fully understand why I was crying but I wasn't the only one. The whole theatre was fully of sniffles. Aside from a movie (an animated movie!) being so good it brings me to tears... the story was great, something we can all relate to. A movie for the whole family for sure. And I loved Sadness, she was my favourite. I thought Disgust would have been my favourite character because of her design but Sadness won my heart. Phyllis Smith was a perfect choice as the voice for her.
P.S. I think the last Pixar movies that made me cry were probably Brave and Up.
