**UPDATE** Drunken Yoda attempted to explain the movie with disastrous results.

 

 

 

You’ve probably seen the trailer for Everything Everywhere All At Once, but if you haven’t, what can you expect? I would have to say probably the most creative and interesting movie I have seen since The Matrix. There is nothing out there to compare it to.

Everything Everywhere All At Once stars Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, Ke Huy Quan, James Hong, Jenny Slate, and Jamie Lee Curtis. It’s directed and written by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

The directors are probably best known for Swiss Army Man. If you haven’t seen, I can’t recommend it enough. It is probably one of the oddest movies I’ve ever seen and it’s brilliant. The story for Everything Everywhere All At Once is this:

“An aging Chinese immigrant is swept up in an insane adventure, where she alone can save the world by exploring other universes connecting with the lives she could have led.”

This is just the tip of the iceberg. The story is actually incredibly complex to explain yet simple to understand. What do I mean by that? Well basically, I couldn’t explain it here but it will all make perfect sense when you see it.

Although I get the impression that what made sense to me might appear different to somebody else. What makes sense to me might not make sense to you. It really is that type of movie. Everything Everywhere All At Once has layers upon layers upon layers of depth to it. There are issues about family, the pursuit of love, letting go, having fun, being serious, respecting yourself, and getting help from friends.

I have only watched it once so there is only so much I can retain. I will be watching this again and again, as I suspect there is a lot more to take from it.

The entire cast is excellent. Michelle Yeoh is a great actress. In this she is the main focus and carries the entire movie effortlessly, from plain old Evelyn to all the other versions of her from across the mulitverse. You believe everything that is going on with her is real.

Stephanie Hsu, who I can’t say I remember in much else, is really great in this. She plays the daughter who is having to deal with her mother and the rest of the family, but there is so much more to her.

It was great to see Ke Huy Quan again. He’s better known as Short Round from Temple of Doom and Data from The Goonies. I always liked him and it was a shame he didn’t do more acting. In this, he is awesome! I’m so buying a bum-bag, or fanny-pack as you Americans call it.

The rest of the cast is really good, but then you have Jamie Lee Curtis playing a character that I think is the best work I have seen her do in many years. I actually feel bad for her, playing Laurie in Halloween again and again and again, since she’s an incredible actress. In this, she’s able to break all the shackles of Laurie and just have loads of fun.

I can say pretty confidently that you have never seen anything like this before. It’s brilliantly clever, it’s heart-warming, it’s hilarious, it’s weird. This is honestly one of the best movies I have ever seen and I can’t think what comes close to it right now.

I can’t stop thinking about what it is actually about, how Evelyn had a life and every decision in that life led to somewhere. Her life was getting on top of her, but she needed to see the bigger picture, of what is really important.

We are going to be talking about Everything Everyone All At Once on the Livestream this weekend, so join us and let us know what you got out of it. I can’t wait to see what the guys made of it. To quote Drunken Yoda :

“Everything Everywhere All At Once hands down full stop best movie of the year.”

I agree with that. It’s going to take something pretty damn spectacular to beat this to be my favorite movie of 2022. If you want something different, something that will sit with you for a while, and just a bat-shit crazy movie to enjoy then check out Everything Everywhere All At Once.

I have to say, I’m embarrassed for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. Marvel could have fully embraced the multiverse, but overall, it was pretty underwhelming.

Everything Everywhere took the multiverse, embraced it, married it, and had kids with it! It had a universe where everyone has hot dogs instead of fingers, a universe where life couldn’t prosper, a universe where butt plugs can give you superpowers. Again, this is just the tip of the iceberg! I haven’t mentioned the raccoon, the bagel, or the Kung Fu pinkies!

I can’t fault this movie, I loved it! I know that when I get to see it again there will be more to find. Hidden easter eggs, subtle nods to other places in the movies elsewhere.

review-everything-everywhere-all-at-onceThis gets 6 stars! It's the most original movie I have seen in many years, it's complex but simple, heartwarming, but action-packed and a genuine delight to see something so well made. It's the best movie of 2022 and I don't see anything coming close to beating it.
