There are a lot of movies that often seem similar or predictable. The Menu, from its first scene, catches you off guard with its abruptness, settling you into a story that promises to be an interesting ride.
Its cast is perfectly assembled, Ralph Fiennes is unforgettable in this role as renowned Chef Slowik, and Anya-Taylor Joy once again proves that if she’s starring in a project, it has a chance of being really good.
I won’t go into too much detail about this film because it’s best if you don’t know the plot but I will say this; it’s brilliant, so pleasing to watch, and it made me want a cheeseburger.
I’m giving The Menu 4.5 out of 5 stars and a solid 95 out of 100. I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
I don’t usually watch these type of movies. When the newest adaptation of Little Women was all the rave last year I looked the other way. And the closest movie I could say I’ve ever seen to this type of posh British love-story movie is Barry Lyndon which was a nearly three-hour long epic rather than a cute, comedic story.
However, yesterday I decided to watch Emma. because the film looked pretty on commercials and I like Anya Taylor-Joy enough to not be annoyed watching her in such a role. To be honest, I had no idea what the story was about but it wasn’t long before the gorgeous frames and cheeky humor reeled me in.
Emma. is no masterpiece but it sure was an entertaining two hours of my time as my sister and I were transported to early 19th-century England where we listened to the gossip of the lords and the ladies and watched riveted as the petty drama ensued.
By the end, I was pleasantly surprised and I was glad I watched it. Maybe now, if I get the chance, I’ll watch Little Women.
I’m giving it 93 out of 100 and 4 out of 5 stars.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Movie studios have now struck another angle to get seats in butts and that is the sudden willingness to adapt beloved games into films. And after the success and impending sequel for Sonic the Hedgehog’s movies it was only a matter of time before we’d get a Mario film. The cast, however, was just announced last night and boy is it a star-studded ensemble. Check it out.
Chris Pratt is Mario
Yes, you’re hearing correctly. The man who brought Emmet from The Lego Movie to life is now lending his voice to Mario which is a bit confusing but could turn out to be kind of brilliant.
Anya Taylor-Joy is Peach
This makes sense. In fact, she could play a live-action Peach. That’s how perfect this casting is.
