    Absolute perfection. Magnolia is another masterpiece from PTA that I like even more than I did the first time around. The soundtrack is amazing and used so well, the dialogue once again being a huge driving force of the movie is written perfectly and performed brilliantly by the cast of some of my favourite actors.

The sad part is that there were some bits I thoroughly enjoyed and some pretty funny jokes but some jokes like the vegan ones were beat into the ground and stopped being funny real quick. It's just inconsistent and more corny than anything else, I hated the dialogue. The effects were cool sometimes but mostly obnoxious and over the top and the pacing was bad imo,…
