    Dunno why some critics think the movie didn't hit the satire or the real horrors of the Nazi's but it hit both, nice balance. Loved the movie.

    In my opinion, it earns it's emotional heft. Reminded me of "The Death of Stalin", particularly when I'm laughing and then thinking "it's not impossible that this scene happened". Worth it.

    It's like if Wes Anderson did a reboot of Donnie Darko

    Its mix of irreverent humor and serious subject matter is definitely controversial and not for everyone's taste, but it's at its core an antiwar satire that's intelligent, hilarious, moralistic and emotionally rewarding.

    But In reality I saw this tonight and it was really great despite its subject matter and it's slightly derivative of other films centered around World War 2 and the Holocaust I still had a good theater 🎭 experience with no annoying patrons. The film centers around a young fanatic boy (Played by Roman Griffin Davis) who lives with his overprotective mothers (Played by Scarlett Johansson) are harboring a young Jewish girl (Played by Thomasin McKenzie) in this coming of age dark comedy-drama. The actors all do a great job in their roles and add depth to their characters and arks. Speaking of which the characters are so likable even if they're apart of you know Nationalist Socialist Workers Party but human kindness and love ❤️ always come through and they reflect that as the plot progresses and the bonds between them strengthen, it's beautiful to watch. The writing ✍️ is really great 👍 and as mentioned before balance both comedic and tragic scenes perfectly much better than even Marvel at their best in both laughs and even a few tearjerkers. The look and style of the film can be very Wes Anderson-ish but the difference is Taika Waititi style tens to be more humerus while Wes is more Witty and subtle. Overall I had a great time with the film and also see The Snoop Dogg at a premiere for the new movie Black and blue was a huge bonus plus I got this free movie poster another big bonus, and I give it a 9.3/10 While many people would have a bad feeling about the setting and subject matter and the genre it chooses but as I've learned from my Cinema classes the concept of drama is a balance of both comedy and tragedy. The comedy comes from the absurdity of the tragedy there for looses its power over us. The tragedy comes from how dark the subject matter is of what we're laughing at when we really think about it. In my opinion people's beliefs don't make them evil yes people do superiority and inferiority complexities what makes an ideology truly evil is how one or some people might take it to twist it and use it to justify hurting others with no justification.

    The movie was much better than I expected. It was more of a comedic drama than just a comedy hut either way I thought it was really good. Everything a movie should be. 4.5 stars is definitely appropriate.

    I absolutely adore this movie. A real genre-bridging film, Jojo Rabbit is funny, sad, and beautiful, all without taking itself too seriously. The humor is exactly what you would expect from Taiki Waititi and works wonderfully against the dark background. The cast all does an excellent job. I really can't speak too highly of this one; just go watch it.

    Ignore the po-faced, virtue-signalling critics who try to make out that being irreverent about Nazism in some way diminishes the horror of the Holocaust or renders a serious subject trivial. On the contrary, the fact that Jo Jo Rabbit skewers the grotesque absurdity of Nazi anti-Semitism is more powerful than yet another stating-the-obvious sermon. More importantly, this is a lovely, funny, moving, involving, laughter-and-tears story, told with imagination, style and wit. In short: brilliant!
