2 movies

We are not normally movie goers, but saw two last month: A Star Is Born (which I thought was really powerful and would love to read some more critiques of, but I wanna read critiques by people who actually apparently saw the movie which discounts a lot of the ones I've read), and, last night (to escape the one or two tricker-treaters that might actually try our neighborhood), The Hate U Give.

Parts were super powerful. Parts were to an audience that wasn't me. There were a number of plot elements that felt like a YA novel (which, hey, it was drawn from, so that's fine) that left me questioning how those things might work in the more complex reality of the real universe.

I always want to walk out of a movie feeling like I've learned something about myself and my place in the culture around me, and with some deeper questions that I have trouble articulating, and this one succeeded.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
