natural, well-acted, unwieldy
the cast was perfect. they seemed natural and almost documentary like. Troy was magnificent. the movie captures 70s culture, the games, the shows, the streetlife, the music with humor without becoming precious. the sense of family is remarkable: strong and a little sadistic. i felt like i was that little girl living in the middle of all of those brothers. i would like delroy lindo to be my father. the flow of the narrative was a bit unwieldy, bu the music carried me through. if you want a nice neat plot, this isn't the flick to see. it was gentle.

Would You Watch 'Crazy Rich Avengers'?

Captain Marvel star Gemma Chan would ... so she created the ultimate Crazy Rich Asians crossover, and even assigned Avengers roles to co-stars like Henry Golding.
