    ★★★★

    I'm always up for a nice found family story. Pair it with nice action, purple, and glowy Christmas lights and I feel all warm and snuggly.

    This series did a wonderful job of making me care more about Hawkeye through blending the emotion and the action perfectly. I never felt like an episode focused too much on one aspect. Hailee Steinfeld plays Kate wonderfully and I hope we see much more of the character within the MCU/TV realm.

    There was always a nice mixture of character introspection-- the partnership dynamics feel natural as they develop--with more story and action-driven moments that were creative and well-choreographed.

    I remember seeing this in the theater and my mom getting me a Spider-Man shirt. Wish I still had that somewhere. 💖 It’s nice when films I loved when I was younger live up to my memories, offering that burst of nostalgia along with new insights.

    I think this might be my favorite Wes Anderson film. I think it has the best blend of style and substance of all his films. I love the story, characters, style, etc of this film. This is what got me to love Jason Schwartzman and I am so glad I saw this how ever many years ago it was when I saw it for the first time. I've seen it many times since and I come away loving it more…
