Just that really. I loved it. I loved everything about it. I cried, I laughed, it was one of the best films I've ever seen.

I loved it too!

I could go into a whole essay about the things I liked about it grin

Brilliant film!

ProseccoBubbleFantasies Sat 23-May-20 14:05:35

Another fan here. Soooo few people I know saw it.
Thought it was great.

LetsGoFlyAKiteee Sat 23-May-20 14:05:45

I didnt expect it to make me cry so much! Even apart from the obvious scene. The ending wow! Heroes and the dancing.

It was great.

I loved it too. I particularly liked how the ‘imaginary friend’ got more dishevelled and more like their actual selves as the movie went on, starting off very comedic as I think most children see him but then as the scales fell from Jojo’s eyes, they changed more into how an adult sees them. Even down to the way they spoke and what they were saying. It was very good.

Definitely not unreasonable. It's a brilliant film. DS(14) ranks it in his top ten.

I thought it was wonderful and my favourite movie of the year.

Me too, I loved it, and what a great young actor! I loved Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows is fantastic, can't wait for the new series.

But I also felt afterwards slightly angered that so many people/media are comparing our situation now with the war. God knows how many people hid in attics/cellars and with strangers, were sent away never to return home or see their family again. That's true isolation and I can't begin to imagine it. Feel so very grateful for what we have!

Best film so far this year, loved it, nearly didn’t go cos had no idea what it was about but friend booked it.... so glad she did.

KKSlider Sat 23-May-20 14:36:08

I loved how colourful and fashionable Germany was at the start of the film, especially as Berlin was quite a fashionable place at the time. And then how it degrades as the film goes on and the war goes less and less well for them.

Loved how no one was overtly "bad" (other than Hitler), they were all just people doing people things.

Cried at the obvious bits.

And his mum was such a beautiful soul, I can only dream of being so patient with my DC!

TheMotherofAllDilemmas Sat 23-May-20 14:37:04

I loved so many things in it, particularly the mum’s character. It was great, even when I wasn’t particularly looking to it when I noticed the imaginary friend was Hitler.

Belfastian Sat 23-May-20 14:37:17

I loved it.

SansaClegane Sat 23-May-20 14:47:27

Yes I loved it too. Although the bit where he recognises his mum's shoes broke my heart.
I had high expectations though having discovered 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' last year, also by Taika Waititi! Highly recommend that one too if you haven't seen it!

iklboo Sat 23-May-20 14:56:47

@SansaClegane - HE'S A MOLESTERER! grin

VirginWestCoast Sat 23-May-20 14:58:43

Absolutely brilliant. Would definitely watch again.

mummymeister Sat 23-May-20 14:59:02

Yes totally agree. I have seen some fantastic films this year. seems like a surfeit of good ones for a change. I also loved Joker and 1917. all very compelling watchable emotional films.

Trentmum Sat 23-May-20 15:00:39

Loved it. Such a clever film.

Cloverforever Sat 23-May-20 15:05:55

Are you all talking about seeing it at the cinema, or Is it out on Netflix/amazon etc?

Ironfloor269 Sat 23-May-20 15:09:39

OP, where did you catch the movie?

KKSlider Sat 23-May-20 15:23:02

It's on Sky Store at the minute so will likely be on Sky Movies by the summer?

recededpronunciation Sat 23-May-20 15:35:41

You can rent it on amazon and apple for £2.99 at the moment. It’s a superb film and the best I’ve seen in a long time.

YouTheCat Sat 23-May-20 15:41:22

I went to the cinema to see it and it's one of the best films I've seen in a long time. Love Taiki Waititi's stuff. He's supposed to be directing the next Star Wars film.

We all loved it
