From writer/director Domee Shi (Bao 2018); starring Sandra Oh and Rosalie Chiang, Turning Red is Disney Pixar’s latest animation/adventure/comedy. The story of a thirteen year-old girl. Specifically what happens whenever she…
Isn’t this a pleasant surprise of a trailer? The super cuteness; the sound of Sandra Oh’s distinctive voice, then even more cuteness and a thoroughly intriguing premise.
Bring on the colour-rich fun that’s coming our way! I’m ready!
Anne Heche’s performance as a bitter struggling artist and Amy Hill’s turn as ‘crazy aunt Charlie’ are the two main highlights of Catfight.
Starring Sandra Oh, Anne Heche, Alicia Silverstone and Amy Hill, Catfight is a dark drama / comedy about the long standing rivalry between two former college friends; a rivalry that turns into brutal, life altering fights.
The source of the humour in Catfight is mostly tragedy. This is probably part of the reason why I didn’t laugh a lot. In some ways I found the main characters to be too ridiculously ‘unthinking’ in some of their key choices. With Catfight, you’re essentially watching grown ups behaving badly towards one another in ways that don’t necessarily feel completely justified. The characters are in the most part, not likeable – even some the ones I found myself feeling sorry for.
The general idea of this movie is a good one, but the execution could have been less awkward in parts. How far could this story have gone with Quentin Tarantino’s writing brain and his budget behind it? I also wonder whether the edit may have helped to kill this film. Right now, theres a chance that I may enjoy Catfight more after a second viewing. I’ll certainly update this post should I go down that seemingly crazy route.
Also, for anyone who’s ever wondered what the voice of a six year old girl sounds like on a grown adult woman, Catfight absolutelyhas the answer.
Starring Sandra Oh, Anne Heche and Alicia Silverstone, Catfight is the story of two bitter rivals who bump into each other at a glamorous event one evening and naturally of course, what follows is fisticuffs and an all-out brawl that lasts some years…
Written and directed by Onur Tukel, I’m ready for the peculiar madness of grown up women behaving very, very badly indeed.
