    Well that was just fucking enjoyable

    had every emotion in it possible

    ScarJo and Sam Rockwell were just wonderful

    Taika was hilarious

    his soundtracks are so underrated

    Very funny and also just a good movie. If you like the trailer then you will like the movie. Plus Sam Rockwell as always is the man.

    Will be in my top 15 maybe 10 for the year.

    I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. Taika is hysterical as Hitler, and the chubby best friend is great as well.

    There is a Wes Anderson vibe but much more dim. It’s doesn’t scream out that it is trying to be folksy and cute.

    I liked Jojo Rabbit a lot. The people that find it offensive, want to be offended IMO.

    Saw it tonight and really liked it. First and some of second act dragged a bit but that last half or so was tremendous.

    Thomasin McKenzie as Elsa stole the movie. She’s going to be a star.

    loved this movie. ScarJo and Rockwell were both great as was the girl who played Elsa.

    my only complaint would be I could have used some more Yorki.

    I agree with the Wes Anderson part. Usually, those films lose me. This didn’t. The kid who played Jojo was so endearing. Just a really good movie.

    If you guys like this movie, but also haven't seen Hunt for the Wilderpeople do yourselves a favor and go watch it. It's the same director, made in a similar style, and completely delightful.

    Still chuckle at these 2 scenes:

    Just watched this finally. Love how it balances both the horror of war and hatred with the absolute ridiculousness of them as well. Sam Rockwell and Alfie Allen were hilarious

    I really want to see this movie. Is it streaming anywhere yet? Last I saw I could buy it on Amazon, but I'm not looking to pay that much. Rental would be fine though.

    Saw it two weeks ago and thought it was incredible. Read nothing about it and it was not what I expected right off the bat with the Hitler parody stuff. But it was extremely well done.

    The thing that’s really amazing about it is that it’s Taika’s worst film, and it’s great.

    (admittedly, I haven’t seen his second film, Boy)

    as a big Taika fan and person that normally enjoys movies like this, I didn't enjoy this at all. by far his worse film. wasn't offended by the subject matter, but it was just so one note and really lacked the usual cleverness of his movies

    Rewatched this the other night, still really enjoyed it. The part at the beginning, right after Hitler gets Jojo all hyped up to start his day and he's running down the street "heil Hitlering" everyone he sees and is "heiling" with both arms, is so damn funny and slayed me even more on rewatch.

    My only knock is the pace of the 2nd act. Bit too slow/repetitive between the two, other than that I loved it

    absolutely great movie

    why did Sam Rockwell's character like JoJo and his mom? He obviously new that wasn't his sister and it was the jew JoJo was talking about

    also, as bad as it is, the jews sleeping like bats slayed me for some reason
