Movie Club: Poor Things 🍿

Finally saw Yorgos Lanthimos' Poor Things!

While it's definitely a captivating watch, I almost feel like it should be called "Emma Stone's Poor Things" because her performance steals the show.

It's a fun movie, though occasionally a bit too explicit for my taste. If you have a couple of hours to spare, I recommend checking it out, but maybe wait for it to come to Netflix instead of rushing to the theater.

There wasn't anything that stood out to me that made me feel like this had to be seen on a big screen.

The highlight? Emma's absolutely terrific performance in this Frankenstein-inspired role. Mark Ruffalo also gets his comedic moments.

The only drawback for me was the ending, which felt dragged out. A 20-minute trim would have tightened the pace.

(No spoilers here!) The movie follows Emma Stone's character, Bella (I think that's her name), as she journeys from childhood to adulthood, trying to learn the rules of human society. Of course, things get interesting along the way.

The issue arises when she becomes an adult and starts questioning everything. The movie shifts from funny to somewhat serious, and while it still works, it loses a bit of its spark.

Overall, it's a fun watch for anyone with a couple of hours to spare. Grab some popcorn and enjoy Bella's story!
