A Movie Review—Jojo Rabbit

 


Director: Taika Waititi  Writers: Christine LeunensTaika Waititi

IMDb overview: A young boy in Hitler's army finds out his mother is hiding a Jewish girl in their home. 

Months back, I'm sure some of you might have seen in this post my excitement for the Jojo Rabbit movie trailer. I'd been literally obsessing about Jojo Rabbit and wanting to see this movie for so long but couldn't. 

There was just too much day to day on top of work, that so much time passed that it seemed I would never see this. But then covid happened in March 2020 and it gave me a much needed breather from the unhealthy rapid pace in place for so long. 


What drew me to Jojo Rabbit was how adorable the little boy, Jojo, in the movie trailers looked. And, of course, if Scarlett Johansson is in a movie I'm there. I consider her one of the top actors of our times. 

The movie proved to be very much what I thought it would be. It was hilarious and seeing a little kid try to understand cultural genocide and bigotry was quite interesting. Often children cannot understand how dire things are. 

While we as an audience know that what the Nazis were doing to the Jews was horrendous, Jojo, doesn't and we get to go along with him in choosing for himself what to believe. As such I did feel the severity was cushioned for, us, the audience as much as it was for Jojo. Though my favorite theme of the movie was even when things are bad, yes, we can choose to make room for dancing. 

Standout Performances: Roman Griffin Davis (Jojo), Sam Rockwell, Thomasin McKenzie, Scarlett Johansson  

Genre: Comedy, War

2021

 

I'm sure by now many people realize since the events of January that choosing to vote for someone unqualified carries with it a high price. Part of me was not at all surprised by what occurred January 2021. 

As those of you who have been with me know, part of my disenchantment with blogging was that it got to a point that I wasn't sure who my readers were. Seemingly overnight I realized there are many people who are filled with hate toward immigrants, believe in religion which as a believer in Science is preposterous to me, and believe climate change is a hoax. Because Texas having such a drastic Winter today totally makes sense. That said, don't get me wrong I don't hate religion and religious people but I do think religious people are misguided and come off as crazy. 

I might lose readers for this but I don't care, I believe strongly in justice and for me politics is serious because it affects every part of our lives. We can't ignore issues like these especially when the income inequality gap has gotten out of hand, one that if you look closely affects certain groups more than others. 

I look forward to blogging this year on here and I do it because I know there are some of you in liberal states and liberal local regions. But honestly, if I lose some of you that might be for the best. I don't want to have anything to do with conservative scum.
