Veteran director Martin Scorsese recently criticised review aggregator websites for pushing the idea that "every image is there to be instantly judged and dismissed without giving audiences time to see it." Do reviews online reduce value of cine

You can try Coda or Belle (Anime). They are all good at hitting the comedy and emotional part as good as EEAAO. Just different genre. Try not to watch Coda in front of kids otherwise you have to explain a fair bit of bees and flowers. These are the type of movies lift up your spirit after a shitty day. You know those wholesome Petronas ads that Yasmin Ahmad used to make.

Let's settle the misconception, yes William Shakespeare rip-off Amleth to be Hamlet. The production design is very grimy and makes the Vikings Valhalla looks like a Disney show. Also rare to see they actually include slavery an integral part to the storyline. Don't go in expecting Gladiator or Braveheart, it has slower pacing and felt more like a Shakespeare movie. Artsy imagery and slow burning characterization minus the fancy Shakespearean english. The supernatural visuals very impressive to watch, can't help it there's a Valkyrie sequence highly reminiscent of Elden Ring. When all is said and done, still a good watch for me. We already have The Batman, Everything Everywhere All At Once, and now this. Also Top Gun Maverick is getting very good review. Pretty good year for cinephiles.

Try to bait you watching a very good movie. Yes it won Oscars but it's a very easy watch. It's not a pretentious artsy movie.

Please don't sit on this movie, take a leap of faith and walk out from theater with a satisfying smile guaranteed. It's more than just a silly comedy.

Just watched this (not at the cinema though) and holy cow... what a bloody damn good movie. Exceptionally good acting, editing work and a superbly heartful story mixed with plenty of comedic elements.

This undoubtedly is one of the best films I've seen this year.

My mind is still reverberating with scenes from the movie.

And (no spoilers) the way it ended after all that multiversal journey, really really moved me.

Just found out, they initially wanted Jackie Chan. Thank god it didn't come true. Otherwise my enjoyment of the film severely unsatisfactory. I know a lot of fans still regard him a cinema hero. Not a fan of him ever since he became a CCP mouthpiece.

Everything Everywhere All At Once outperform gross expectations in US. It has strong legs. Don't think it will join 100 million club but for an A24 film, that's really impressive.

It was already a perfect cast, I feel if they added "another super famous" actor like Jackie Chan it would take some light away from Michelle Yeoh (no offence to Jackie Chan fans).

Btw, possibly an easter egg, the multiverse sequence of Evelyn:

Michelle Yeoh is having a second wind in Hollywood. She got quite a few projects waiting to be released. JC basically Persona Non Grata in HK. No one will watch his movie after he decide to be CCP mouthpiece and his inhumane treatment of his daughter.
