Ok it is a good movie.
Finally saw Juno last night, and surprisingly it surpassed the hype that was dumped on it. I mean great soundtrack, great writing, and great characters. It was over the top in the sense that I know very few 16-year-olds who talk with such intellectual dexterity, but it was enchanting nonetheless. Also the mid'90s feel was uplifting, especially if you grew up in that era, even though it just seemed like a small town in America that was stuck in the mid-'90s. Either way the nostalgic value is there. Now I know there has been overall criticisms that it’s an anti abortion film, but folks should give it chance before making those judgments.
I would say more but I don’t want to ruin it. And again the soundtrack is phenomenal. Kimya Dawson has been putting in her work for a while. A friend from D.C. put me on to her about 4 years ago when the documentary Afro- Punk just came out and finding black folks who did rock music was all the rage. That was before TV on the Radio and Bloc Party made it played out. Anywayz enjoy. Holla Back!!!!!!!!!!!!
