Atom User Reviews for Mid90s
I SAID HELL YEAH
very good and very real
Great Soundtrack too
I hoping for more of KIDS like vibe but it was super tame and should've been more grimey.
A lil short and not for the easily offended but definitely worth the price of admission!
All the music, fashion, living and what the world looked like in the mid 90's was amazing. You got to go see 😱. I wish it was the 90's all over again due to how terrific "Jonah Hill" directed the movie.
Abrupt ending ...
Took me back to being a teen in the 90’s. Great flick.
Jonah Hill did a great job
Great movie, nice to see what other kids where going through and the semblance and similarities in what I went through in the 90's. Great flick. thumbs up Jonah!!!
Honestly made me tear up a bit. It was very relatable and dam im just speechless
A strong directorial debut by Jonah Hill. I laughed, reminisced, and had an absolute blast watching this movie.
Clear your head and fill it with the noise of the grind against the concrete
This was such a good movie that I'd love to go see it again. It was unique with the story and the picture was shot amazingly. Highly recommend.
Great movie a little short and ending was kind of meh, overall well written!
Accurate aesthethic and very interesting, but the characters didnt get enough development and it was too short. Story didn't realize the way it was expected to
great movie. definitely gave me the 90s nostalgia
This movie really took me back to summers in high school. Must see.
It certainly doesn’t work in Mid90s’ favor that it is the third movie released in the past two months to focus on an outsider with a turbulent home life seeking out community in the world of skateboarding. Even without the unflinching documentary Minding the Gap and the sure-handed docufiction Skate Kitchen, Mid90s would feel phony, but the former’s understated and thoughtful treatment of its protagonists’ real-life tragedies contrasts sharply with Hill’s attempts to wring pathos from his manufactured ones. Next to them, Mid90s just looks like a poser.
Whether Hill’s debut as a writer-director is drawn entirely, or partly, from personal experience seems a moot point: there’s a sufficient clear-eyed skill to the project to elevate it out of the memoir arena and mark the actor out as a directing talent to watch.
A gender-flipped sibling to Crystal Moselle's Skate Kitchen (set in Los Angeles versus that film's NYC), its narrative of sudden belonging and onrushing perils mirrors that Sundance entry. But in emotional punch and shoulda-seen-this-coming skill, it is more like Hill's Lady Bird, a gem that feels simultaneously informed by its author's adolescence and the product of a serious artist's observational distance.
