A decidedly hollow offering (with so much histrionic rage).
I hoped for someone or something with which to engage
(But found no traces).
Its only saving graces:
Some interesting visual elements (though these served to upstage).

...

Vile, damaged March (full of poison, and new to town)
Brings on an event that’ll require the rep of the Crown.
From Thornton: extraordinary storytelling
Visually commanding, and so compelling.
Doolans: brilliant work (as a boy used to being pushed down).

...

Nebraskan Safraneks (Audrey and Paul)
Are slated for a new life as Small.
Interesting concepts, but executed
In a way that often diluted
Potential depth. Plot ideas: too much sprawl.

...

First school for Auggie, and first experience of friends
In this sweet, moving film that never descends
Into schmaltzy manipulation.
Sincerity: its foundation,
Led by strong Tremblay. Lesson: kindness transcends.

...

Three moms visit (one in particular: disapproving),
But Amy and co. want to go about removing
High expectations. Overall: it's ridic,
(And many jokes wear off quick)
Though Baranski brings some moments that are moving.

...

Wilder: Prolific director (arguably one of history's best -
As those who love his eclectic works will attest).
Many enlightening anecdotes here ..
Insights re: the man and his career
(Of genre-hopping versatility that left the viewer blessed).

...

From once-secret art during post-war repression
To open appreciation of Tom's artistic expression.
Well-acted, but too safe/clean.
Favourite/clever scene:
Pool party cops (subverting our assumed impression).

...

Gasping, white-knuckled, each time rock crumbled:
Watching climbers on peaks as they stumbled.
The splendour of landscapes (sublime),
With orchestral music (divine).
Such magnificent sights left me awe-struck and humbled.

...

While twin sister Amy's career's really soaring,
Polly's in a work rut, and her daily life's boring.
She hopes things can flip.
Cue: her ill-advised trip.
Some terrific jokes had me absolutely roaring.

...

Seal taking on every gig. Oh, his hubris: 'How can I lose?'
Not much under the hood here, as we follow each deal & schmooze
(Hiding out; night in a cell;
In cahoots with gov and cartel)
But it's entertaining, thanks to the reliably charismatic Cruise.

...

A heavy burden hangs over Conor's head:
Impending loss; an existential dread.
Enter: an anthropomorphic tree.
Can its fables set him free?
Impressive (dark) visuals. Tears to be shed.
