How AMAZING is that movie?

I was feeling like shit after my best friend's suicide and it's one of the only things so far that has made me laugh and entertained me and even comforted/soothed me a little bit.

It's one of the best movies I've watched in YEARS. So, so good.

Also, damn, I love Michelle Yeoh she's so cool and gorgeous and elegant!

And the Jobu Tupaki character? Fucking great.

The stones scene!?

I saw it the week after watching the Dr. Strange "sequel".

It absolutely annihilated Multiverse of Madness to the point I felt pity for Sam Raimi.

Loved. Saw it with my husband and our youngest daughter and it was a HUGE hit with my kid. She has ADHD and she very sweetly said, "Mom, thanks for that. It was amazing to see the way my brain works in a movie like that." I was so NOT expecting that, but when I went looking for some interviews with the filmmakers, well, one of the Daniels said he has ADHD and he wanted that to be part of the character and the fabric of the film.

I went to see it with my best friend a couple weeks later and was really glad I did -- it stood up to another viewing. My kids and I are now obsessed with Racacconie and if you are aware of the concept, you start seeing it all over the film, even from the opening shot.

My other daughter saw it with her boyfriend and she loved it, too. She and I were discussing it and she looked at her phone and then said, "OMG, I'm so stupid!" She read a recap which pointed out the overarching symbolism of the everything bagel and the googly eye as yin/yang. I've since made a reaction photo of a bagel and a googly eye to text her when I'm surprised by something and it cracks us both up.

I've encouraged everyone I know to watch it and more than once.

Wait what, there is MORE racacoonie!?

It's more that there are clues that it's coming -- Raccacoonie is coming and you cannot stop it. It's not just a weird aside, it's set up from the first shot of the movie, where the reflection of the family in the photo in the mirror and there's a little raccoon knick-knack. There are some other little hints, too. It's fun to look for them when you realize that it was all woven in from the very beginning.

Yes and I loved it! I want to watch it over and over again. So many things I loved about it. The delicacy of a not-very-good but still redeemable mother-daughter relationship- it's so rare to see that done in a way that's not black and white. Jaime Lee Curtis' belly! I can't stop thinking about it. The part where it flickers through all of Michelle Yeoh's alternate selves- how can one person be so expressive, in so many different ways? There were some bits that made me a little uncomfortable, or that I think it might have been better without, but overall, one of the best movies I've ever seen.

The part that made me most uncomfortable was the paper cut between the fingers part tbh

Jobu Tupaki is such a mood. I really liked her styling; it came across as very ironic and bored of everything.

She reminded me a lot of my recently deceased best friend. Both had too much in their heads and were fashion icons. Shw would have loved this movie, wish I could somehow send it to her in the afterlife or something.

That is probably the best movie I have seen in years! It was so fresh and had so much heart. It was weird and funny and sweet. The stones are my absolute favorite! I think I cried during that scene! Incredible!

I really want to watch it with my family except I can't allow myself to watch anything with sexual content in it around my parents without deathly embarassment. Oops. But one day I do hope to watch it with my mom. I want her to see it for its message, that facing fear through love is the way.

The stones scene took me by such surprise. It was my favorite in the theater.

I took my mom to see it and it was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it if you get to a place where you feel like you can.

I saw it! I loved it! I'd watch it again in order to catch everything I missed the first time around. Michelle Yeoh is my fave!

We need more Michelle Yeoh stans in the world. I also love her as captain Phillippa Giorgiou in Star Trek Discovery

Brilliant film! I can’t wait to watch it with my mum when I see her next.
