    I was worried the jojo rabbit movie was going to be some kind of “southpark-esq social taboo” movie comparing modern day liberals to nazi or something. Because plenty of people think/ talk/ act that way enough already. Comparing someone who wants to just be gay without fear, or clean the ocean, or give women fair pay, the equivalent of WWII nazi. It’s so tiresome.

    “Ive never seen a movie with the backdrop of conflict or wars from a child’s point of view”
    Check out ‘Grave of the Fireflies’. Fantastic movie with that exact premise.

    I remember seeing the preview and thinking “I can’t wait for this film” I fell in love with him and Jamaine Clement’s style immediately. Thor was the best Marvel movie to date. And this one will be awesome. We need more filmmakers like this and films with messages like this.
    Also – the Warriors should be rereleased. The most multicultural gang film of all times. Latinos and Caucasians in the Asian gang, Asians, African Americans and Caucasians in the Latino gang. If the gangs could just get along together it’d be fine! And of course they eventually do. We need more films like *that* right now.

    Based on what I’ve heard it’s been critically dividing. Which in itself is a good thing because they can’t decide if it’s a great movie with a great message or great movie but relevant. Either way I wanna watch it myself so I can find out

    People do not give this man enough praise for Ragnarok. Everything from the trailer to the end credits where brilliant.

    Marvel movies in general suck ass, but this movie was a masterpiece.

    “Isn’t it weird that in 2019, someone still has to make a movie trying to explain to people not to be a Nazi?”
    Ouch, that really struck a chord in the heart.

    Truer words have never been spoken.
