"Toy Story remains the pinnacle of children's movies as it continues to masterfully juggle the task of entertaining the younger audience, while simultaneously exploring mature and darker themes for adult viewers to ponder. The existential questions they address are cleverly expressed through metaphors. I struggle to find another cinematic series where each individual movie shines with such tight script writing. Not an unnecessary money grab, but rather a bittersweet epilogue. "

"I know it's good when it earns my tears. DuVernay serves a masterclass in direction in this passion project. The entire cast is incredible, Jerome was particularly remarkable. The pacing is perfect, and even the cinematography is creative and feels full of life despite it's genre. I can't give it a perfect score because of small continuity errors, typical embellishments, inaccuracies with Santana's story, and an uncharacteristic lack of tact regarding Trump's involvement. A divisive masterpiece."

"Despite it's cheesy dialogue, the amount of disbelief it asks for you to suspend, and the fact that it has all the subtlety of a San Francisco pride parade, there's some "dumb" fun to be had here. Octavia really embraces her role and her performance probably would've shined with a better script and supporting cast. It's nothing to write home about, but it's a psychological thriller with interesting layers that had potential to be more. Also Diana Silvers was both charming and B E A U T I F U L"

"The chemistry between the leads is palpable and believable, it feels like they're friends in reality. It hits all the notes you'd expect from a coming-of-age piece, but it does so gracefully and it doesn't hesitate to flip classic high school tropes upon it's head. The LGBTQ representation feels organic, not pandering and forced. The dialogue is grounded and real. To call it a "female superbad" would be undermining what it has to say; it does more than enough to stand out from lazy comparisons"
