One of my all time favorites.
best movie i've ever seen.
The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.
Let me be very fair here, this is not the best movie in my opinion. But, this movie is fun, it has purpose and is very enjoyable to watch.
Admit it. It is an aweful movie. So lousy, Too boring to watch, Excessive background music, too predictable with that happy ending. Sure, if you're already having a great day and you wanna watch a cheesy love story this can be your choice. Still, not the best choice. I am not prejudiced, nor am I a homophobe. I'm just saying that I have seen great love stories i.e The Handmaiden 2016, Maurice 1987, Brokeback mountain 2005, but this wasn't one of them. At last, pardon me for this review for i'm not a native speaker and couldn't write better
I didn't think that it would be that much good movie. When i was watching it , i was thinking to give it 7/10 but the last 40 mins won my heart. It's an amazing movie. A must watch. I recommend it to everyone.
It's clearly not a movie for my age, but I can see the importance of the subject coming out of the closet with a lighter, humorous movie. If I was that age, I'm sure that this movie would console me by taking on gay.Simon's point of view very well demonstrated by the direction. A movie that surprised me!
I knew nothing about this movie before I watched it. My wife heard it was great, gave me a brief synopsis of what it was about, so I said sure why not. I planned on catching up on some work emails while it was on in the background.Holy shit - I loved this flick. I thought it was awesome. I'm a sucker for romcoms anyway, but this movie had me laughing hysterically at points, then tearing up at others. Also, I didn't get any work done - my eyes were glued to the screen.The acting was fantasic - the kid that played Simon was so likeable. His parents were so fun to watch, and that speech his Mom gave him made me fight back some tears. The soundtrack was great, the pace was perfect, and it was just a fun damn movie to watch.Now, mind you, I'm a middle aged white dude, married with three little girls, who leans Republican, and voted for Trump. Say what you want... this was a great movie.Trying to raise my girls in this world, they are young and don't know the social difference between race, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, etc. My point is, I think this movie is important, and when they become old enough, I want them to see Love, Simon, not as a "gay" movie", but just another romantic comedy that happens to have a main character who is gay and is trying to find himself. That simple.Love, Simon, in my opinion, will go down in history as a great/memorable teenage flick like "Say Anything", "Reality Bites", "Can't Hardly Wait", etc.A fun, well acted movie, with awesome music that made me laugh, cry, and really root for the main character...who just so happens to be gay. And in my mind, and hopefully my kids' minds, is as normal as anything..
