Cathartic; Tarantino vibes
1 May 2021
As a woman, I've experienced this movie as a truly cathartic experience. It exposes the chauvinism that all women have faced more than once in our lives, reacting as (also more than once) we would have liked to ; therefore the resemblance to Tarantino. Also, Mulligan's performance is superb. Although it can be very raw at times, it is a much-needed film.

Against all odds

The whole story is set up to show how little chance a group of rebels had of stealing the Death Star plans. Even so, it indicates that the defining factors are not the chances we have, but the choices we make with them. It also implies the key relevance of being supported in those choices because, although there are main characters and leaders, the sense of community strength might be stronger than in other films in the franchise.

Spectacular scenery, lovable characters (new and old ones) and a tangled link to the main story. Arguably among the best in the Star Wars universe.

Couldn't tolerate it
8 April 2021
As a social scientist, I found this rather painful to watch. There is a total overlook of the social factors that influence the conditions under which creativity is produced. Like any skill, the ability to be creative must also be promoted. That is why biologistic explanations alone are insufficient.

Love is round

Beautiful, sensitive, truly artistic movie. The way they use shapes and colour as elements of the story is mind-blowing. Of course, as the entire movie is based on dualities and polarities, those whom recognize themselves with the straight, sharp, unsensitive pole may not like it. Nevertheless, it represents accuratelly the colonial mindset and the oppositions on which it was based (civilization vs wilderness; hierarchies vs community, and so on). And this through scenes and frames that are just poetry. Truly a rare gem.

A traditional romcom. Except not.
13 September 2020
In its core, the storyline of this movie is not much different than the one of the same old romantic comedy. Boy meets girl, firsts kisses... I mean, the wedding theme is on the title! But this time they got it right. I find this to be an accurate representation of the dilemas that a young couple face, exposing all the ups and the downs as well. Also they've dodged most of the typical stereotypes that are often reproduced in this genre, giving yet another proof that humor doesn't have to be sexist to be funny. And, of course, Emily Blunt. Period.
