    Anton Ego’s monologue is what inspired me to pursue filmmaking. I really want to write a nice, detailed review, but for some reason can’t. Just know: I love this movie, and I’ll never stop loving this movie. I hope one day I can make something that makes someone feel the way Ego did when he tried Remy’s Ratatouille.

    A perfect birthday watch.

    Matthew Perry tackles a nuanced portrayal of a complex and deeply-troubled man who has lost his way. Zac Efron is tasked with playing the same role but at the age of 17. Both performances were breathtaking (and even that description is a gross understatement)—what these two accomplish will probably never be done again. 

    Stan has a small wiener.

    ★★★★

    Margaret Qualley is obviously a talent that will be around for a long time. The actress who plays the mother, Andie MaCdowell is insanely good in this as well. The interactions written between the two rival Lady Bird. Impressive, melancholic watch.

    Will is 👍 

    The girls are 👍 

    A bit long. Some scenes are just thrown in there for the heck of it..just to share, and it interrupts the flow. But it’s still a pretty easy watch considering the runtime. The Williams Sisters’ come up is so extraordinary, that even a badly made biopic would’ve been an interesting watch. 

    About halfway through the film I thought to myself: “I’m going to reluctantly watch the LaVar Ball Biopic in 20 years….aren’t I?”…
