    It might be Katie's basic level of film work makes it easier for the average person to get. I thought her stuff was fine. No hate just my opinion when taking 7 shots of whiskey

    Grace, why don’t you ever get movies like this. Like the first guardians of the galaxy, I fear you fall short on your understanding of authentic human reactions

  • Javier Hernandez

    Wow your review was almost a full on attack on such a great movie, I hear your opinion and think quite the opposite really. Movie was amazing in all aspects. This movie isn’t supposed to depict how real film school is; plus the dog in the movie was so hilarious!

    gosh I’ve never felt so bad watching a Grace review. This review is so bad. So much nitpicking and unrealistic expectation.

    I graduated from the school this film is based on, Cal Arts. The writer/director went there as well. Let me tell you, they would the DEFINITELY appreciate the lead young woman’s art style. Just think of it as the opposite of NYU. Or if NYU was run by trippy ex-hippies instead of Scorsese-s. Talented people but it was literally labeled the most progressive art school in the nation at one point.

    I have literally never disagreed with you more on a review lol. Like others have posted, it looks like you took the film school thing personally. It’s weird, but I can kinda sympathize. I HATED the movie Drumline.. because I went to college on a scholarship playing drums lol. I know the reality of it and the movie Drumline ain’t it. But The Mitchell’s v The Machines is AMAZINGGG lol wut

    Maybe you shouldn’t have reviewed this one, seems just not your kind of movie. Me and my partner loved the dog, he reminded us so much of our own pup we couldn’t stop laughing. I didn’t think twice about the film school thing, as a LGBT+ individual myself didn’t agree there was queer baiting, in fact liked Katie’s sexuality wasn’t her defining trait. Overall was a great movie we had a great time watching it!

    I literally only subscribe to this channel because she always has the OPPOSITE taste to me in movies, helps me narrow down my choices. By the way, this movie was great

  • Otis Brown
    Otis Brown6 days ago

    As a member of the LGBT community, I have to disagree with your opinion about them queer baiting. I picked up on her liking her future college student very quickly when she mentioned her earlier in the movie and it came full circle in the end. I don’t think it was necessary to focus on her sexuality because it didn’t make any difference in the storyline. To say it was “insulting” is a strong opinion. Very rarely that I disagree with you but your opinion/review about this film are very selfish.

    Shocked at this review when usually for me Grace is on point. This movie is one of the best animations that I have seen and is certainly the best film of 2021 so far by a fair margin. Not sure why al of the emphasis of the realism or not thereof is getting into film school is all about, seems to have touched a nerve for some reason. Everyone should see this film, trust me you will love it.

    I’m sorry, but in my opinion this just isn’t a good review. I know you’re explaining your problems with the movie and that’s totally fine, but some of the problems you had like the film school stuff has nothing to do with the actual movie. It shouldn’t matter if it isn’t realistic, it’s a children’s movie. I just think in some areas you looked too hard into things

  • thegammonator
    thegammonator10 days ago

    I have three things to say about this review: 1. The fact that Grace focused so much on the lack of realism of Katie getting into film school in her review of a movie about the robot apocalypse really makes me think that she doesn’t have much to say 2. I loved the representation of Katie’s sexuality, it wasn’t in your face and was just presented as a fact of life, which is how it should be 3. The whole ‘A little bit goes a long way’ mentality is absolute bullshit, coming from someone who’s tried more than reasonable to fix their relationship with their father over the years

    3:50 how could Grace miss the point so hard? Katie's online popularity is not relevant at all. The whole point of her story is that even niche artists can find their place in the world (and view count should not be indicative of finding that place)

    as a PUG owner i love ALL of the scenes with the dog, it was kinda accurate. plus ITS AN ANIMATED MOVIE!!! you are taking this way too seriously. it has a nice message about family. i loved it, i think it should be nominated for an OSCAR!!! maybe not win BUT get a nomination.

    @Kyle Cronin there are a lot of moments in the film where the try to make a “joke” or have a moment to try to get you to cry but the don’t lay the ground work to make those moments feel authentic or organic. It is lazy writing. This is just my option too, it may have worked for you, but for me, it felt like lazy and cheap storytelling.

    I normally enjoy your reviews but this just wasn't it. To anyone who saw 'The Willoughbys' or just enjoys any animated movies that genuinely have heart, I can't recommend it enough! Also wanted to add the reveal that Katie was gay, was subtle enough that it didn't come off as disingenuous. Tldr; Wonderful movie, if you have some free time to spare, watch it!

    Awww, I thought it was great! Watching it with my niece's and literally laughing out was such a great experience. Haven't seen an animated movie that's held my attention so well since watching into the spider verse!! Don't think that the movie is queerbating as well because it seems pretty acknowledged, especially at the end.

  • straightedgeveganbel

    The dog, the gag about licking the day! So funny. And he saved the day by killing the robots when they got confused if he was a dog or pig, totally necessary. Katie being gay was not lost on me, I liked how it was just a natural thing and not hammered in but made apparent at the end. This is how you normalize, we need more of that.

  • straightedgeveganbel

  • Kyle Snider
    Kyle Snider12 days ago

    It almost feels like Grace didn't realize this was an animated movie. I also find the issue with "queerbaiting" a reach and a half. She's a well-written character who HAPPENS to be gay. This just sounds like a review from someone who's disconnected from the average family. "I don't think Katie will ever truly like her family..." - WHAT MOVIE DID YOU WATCH?

    Right? Grace's take doesn't make any sense. If you want to normalize lgbt, you don't do so by making a big deal out of it. You do it by including it and having people not question it, because dafaq why would they?

  • Dukjin Im
    Dukjin Im12 days ago

    Ridiculous to judge her work based on a few minutes of footage of her work, a lot of it done when she will little. It biased you against the movie. Also what could you possibly know about her school, when they barely spent any time in the school? You should watch again. Things come fast and furious, and older people miss the boat.

Having really long will save you from theives by jumping off a cliff??? I mean come on Grace!!! I think you're critiquing of this movie so off the point! I loved Katie's art style and the art in this movie is soooo cool! I really loved the family bonding and the characters! Art is subjective, but your criticism is sooo off the point!
