January 21, 2018 Reply Sam Clegg Oh shut up Grace. This move was great, and their was nothing wrong with it. Go back to watch Jumanji or some other shit film.

January 21, 2018 Reply Rigsby 1 An utterly woeful review January 21, 2018 Reply Michael Greene This review was made for the crapper. If you are familiar with pt Anderson movies it will put a smile on your face for its not a comic book again direction. One of the best movies of the year. Period. January 21, 2018 Reply Jordan Ray This movie was great January 21, 2018 Reply Scott Knapp I love reading the pedantic droning from the “sophisticated” people reviewing this horrible movie. “An elevated dance of the human spirit expressed in soaring colors within the intersection of love and desperation.” January 21, 2018 Reply Rendan Lovell Wow, you completely and utterly missed the point of the movie. January 22, 2018 Reply Disaster Artist YOU think she ruined his carrear January 22, 2018 Reply Mike Gens agreed! worst ending maybe of all time? January 22, 2018 Reply Patrick D Grace, you clearly missed several key elements and points of this film and failed to understand the characters and their motivations of why they do what they did. You clearly view movies as only entertainment and not as being a work of art. January 23, 2018 Reply jennyeet 3:40 ok but why is her character supposed to be likeable? the movies very clearly about a toxic relationship, and i think the point flew over your head January 23, 2018 Reply The Juvo-Diamond Fair! You do not know what you're talking about. You did not understand the film. Your takeaway was "u can't poison people!!!". Please go and watch The Shape of Water or any of those oscar bait films. Don't challenge yourself in any way. Just wait for a film to lay out in your lap. January 24, 2018 Reply tonywords “absolutely no creative credibility”. said the youtuber shitting on others hard work. January 24, 2018 Reply JpnachoSWAG This is a great film. This “twist” isnt a twist. The seeds are planted for it early and then you slowly watch her do the “twist” in a very slow scene. She makes it seem like a cheap trick, but its well done as seems like the movie unfolding. This is my first time watching you as a reviewer and i will now avoid your videos like the plague. You dont know what youre talking about. January 24, 2018 Reply Joe S Calling the costumes uninspired makes no sense whatsoever. The dresses were purposely not extravagant. They literally address that in the film where Reynolds goes on about his disdain of the word “chic”. January 24, 2018 Reply Ruthless Goat Wow. Phantom Thread was a masterpiece. Bollocks on not liking the twist or the ending. That was just a small cork in a gigantic ocean of fantastic acting, gorgeous cinematography and a score to die for. 10.0/10.0 Regards, Goat from Ruthless Reviews. January 25, 2018 Reply bulgar Grace, like a lot of viewers commented, you completely missed the point of the movie, the themes, the metaphors, the character arcs and the genius of the writing. January 26, 2018 Reply Palindromeda 33 Nothing was shocking or disturbing or confusing about this film. This film was fantastic. Utterly fantastic. Great characters. It’s a shame you couldn’t enjoy it. January 26, 2018 Reply Ari Papermaster Vicky is amazing January 26, 2018 Reply Adam Romero I love ya Grace but you straight up didn't understand this film. It's not shock value. January 27, 2018 Reply JB_XYZ Do you live in Calgary? Looks like it in the background. Btw, I liked this movie… the costumes and music and Vicky was great January 28, 2018 Reply Cameron Kanachki Imagine thinking Phantom Thread is the worst film of 2017. Can't relate. This film is one of the 3 best films of 2017, & is one of Paul Thomas Anderson's best films. January 28, 2018 Reply A F I hate when people say that doing messed up things in a film (poisoning someone) could influence the viewer to do those things. That's like saying video games create school shootings. January 28, 2018 Reply Connor MacLachlan Alma is a psychopath who received no justice for her evil actions. My hatred for her character made this film unwatchable for me. January 28, 2018 Reply Staci Blank I'm confused about one thing…what are Grace Randolph's qualifications ? Not joking. January 28, 2018 Reply Jeansalva Lisabet 100% disagree with this review. Seems like you are totally unaware of everything this film is about. January 29, 2018 Reply JesusSavedJoshua What a stupid depressing dumb film this sounds like. Grace, no reason to swear. This film is barf…I get it. There Will Be Blood was a disgusting vile film too. Good riddance Daniel…seek therapy. January 31, 2018 Reply Kelly Blaine I absolutely loved this movie so I’m shocked to hear you didn’t like it! February 1, 2018 Reply 26alexxkidd My God, what an awful review. February 1, 2018 Reply Alextromagnetic This just proves that Grace knows actively nothing about an extreme BDSM relationship February 2, 2018 Reply Serban Capraru I think you completely missed the point. February 2, 2018 Reply Charlie Compton Grace clearly doesn't understand film. At all..One of the best films of the year. 10/10. Just as good as Blade Runner 2049 February 3, 2018 Reply Jim james Ignore this poorly formed review, the film and performances are excellent. February 3, 2018 Reply Aaron G You've always been a total philistine, Grace, but this review is just embarrassing. Google Munchausen by proxy–it is a very real disorder and not just some "creative gimmick" that you insist PTA used for "shock value." It is also strongly implied that Reynolds had a similar relationship with his mother, which is why he submits to Alma in this way. These two are wildly dysfunctional but in this one aspect they're perfect for each other. It'd really do you some favors to be a bit more well-read and educated before you embarrass yourself with this kind of ignorance. And Vicky Krieps is "just okay"? LOL say what!? She goes toe-to-toe with Day-Lewis and doesn't flinch. She's incredible in this. You always get these weird blood vendettas with young actresses–it's really strange. Maybe you should stick to the comic book stuff. February 4, 2018 Reply Norm Babbitt I hated this movie! I didn't buy plot at all! Everything was good, but the script was horrid. February 4, 2018 Reply ChubbyChecker182 I think that Day Lewis directed this, and Anderson was acting (?) February 6, 2018 Reply Liam Navey this is one of the least shocking and most beautiful films I have ever seen, you missed the whole point of it February 7, 2018 Reply ch33rylips So i finally saw it and I could not disagree with you more, this was such a stunning exit for DDL. I loved every second of this movie, just ugh so freaking good. February 8, 2018 Reply arnemyggen Please stop reviewing these kinds of films. It's not your thing February 8, 2018 Reply finnlyD What does she want? Review the film on its terms not yours. February 8, 2018 Reply Jeff Santos "There's nothing to get" are you fucking serious? Just because you couldn't appreciate the love they had for one another and the lengths that Alma had to go through to "break him" out of his lifelong shell of obsessive work doesn't mean it deserves such negativity. It was all done to finally open his eyes, his heart and have deep appreciation for such a remarkable profound love that she wanted him to experience. You may disagree with the methods used in the film to get to that realization but it worked beautifully. The direction, set locations and music all come together in a very beautiful way that is so rarely seen in today's cinema world. Phantom Thread is a masterpiece and an instant classic. February 8, 2018 Reply Muttley Gutierrez If you or anyone else wants to listen to someone that really gets PTA and Phantom Thread watch the video below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhRCSiNNE6o February 9, 2018 Reply colin the dog from SPACED You come across as being thick and shallow. February 10, 2018 Reply cheekyboy5000 You're so damn beautiful, Grace, but you don't have talk some nonsense. February 10, 2018 Reply Bryan Battista Masterpiece. That is all February 11, 2018 Reply José López-Rúa Hey Grace, been watching your reviews for some time and here's my take on them: I find it very disturbing how your comments take an offensive twist whenever you refer to people's work. It really is disturbing. Beyond that, I thought that everything about Phantom Thread was mesmerizing. If the Costume Design wasn't especially showy it's because 1950s London was dark & depressed after a devastating World War. I think you make too many assumptions and really just think you know it all. Well, guess what… you don't. February 11, 2018 Reply Emaratilicious - I agree with everything you said except your Vicky Krieps critique. I think she shines when the role takes a dramatic shift especially and you can see that in the surprise dinner scene. My favourite part of this film. February 11, 2018 Reply mikep doesCoke This channel is atrocious. Grace is atrocious. February 11, 2018 Reply Neil Tomlinson This was an amazing film!!! February 12, 2018 Reply michael ponder Hey, some people just are not mentally suited to digest masterful filmmaking. It is not her fault she does not get the Phantom Thread or the Master, she was just born that way. If you want reviews on simple films like Thor and Batman Vs Superman then Grace is your woman… If you want analysis on high art and real cinema, run far far away and never look back. Grace clearly failed to grasp the simplest of concepts and themes in this film and that is fine. I certainly can agree that this film is not for everyone, but if you are a fan of Daniel Day lewis or PTA, run to see this movie! I give this a 9.5/10. The filmmaking is superb and amongst some of PTA's best work. The acting from the entire cast is sublime and riveting in the most simple of moments. The soundtrack by Greenwood is absolutely breathtaking and entrancing. The movie itself is a deep and enthralling character study on an artist and his deep obsession with his craft and all things involving it; not to mention his deeply rooted freudian issues with love and commitment… The ending finally ties up the film in a dark and subversive manner that ties many of the curious behavior all together. Bravo. February 13, 2018 Reply Minute Movie Minute With opinions like this, how you have nearly 700k subscribers is beyond me. February 13, 2018 Reply LJ B Spoiler : sort of Of course you can see in retrospect that the singular motivation for an otherwise "left of field" decision is actually very consistent with Daniel day's characters "needs" and longings for a particular deceased person and that persons previous role in relation to Daniels character The best advice to prepare anyone, don't wait for the proverbial "gears" to kick in, this film isn't about going through motions until a third act or acr is reached, this film is about every step in the "now" it's each second that is passing by not the destination, so you will miss the great characters and performances if your distracted waiting for this film to "hurry up" and get somewhere. It's strange because this film slowly grows on you after you have watched it, it's rather enchanting, majestic and fairytale like, for me it's Anderson's second or third best film February 13, 2018 Reply pererau This is my introduction to this YouTube channel. It is also the last video I'll watch. If you can so bafflingly and completely miss the point of a movie that is as brilliant as this, then I have no interest in finding out what you think of any other film. And come clean: was the whole part about food preparation being a cornerstone of society a joke? Please tell me it was a joke. February 14, 2018 Reply inzamam fahad oscar bp , bd , bal February 14, 2018 Reply charlie walsh DDL's character was insufferable and i wanted her to kill him lmao February 14, 2018 Reply paxguz This is what happens when dumb people reviews amazing and complex movies… February 15, 2018 Reply Andrew Reed Wow, this is perhaps the most shallow and uninformed review of this film I've seen so far. It's like you didn't even attempt to understand the characters or their motivations. Yeah, it's a weird ending, and nobody I know would (Spoilers) willingly poison themselves in this way, but thinking of it just in a literal sense is missing the point of the film. The film is about learning to deal with one another in a relationship, the power dynamics that often come with marriage, and this is Alma's way of subverting that dynamic. Reynolds accepts the poisoned food because despite his ultimate need for control in his every day life, there's still part of him deep down that wants to be cared for, as he may have some unresolved issues with his mother who died young. This has already gotten long, but there's LOT more to this film than you give it credit for. Though I'm shocked that even if you miss the point of the film, that you could find the costuming, editing, cinematography, acting, and music all subpar. Regardless of story, this film is nearly perfect in all of those aspects in my opinion. February 19, 2018 Reply Timothy Ramlogan I’ll never look at mushrooms the same again February 20, 2018 Reply pitch black sick people… i love the movie becouse of that. February 21, 2018 Reply Marco Gianesello "Faith in food preparation is the cornerstone of society!" Does this has anything to do whatsoever with a movie about two sick people in a self destructive relationship? No? Is it here because the entirety of your opinion is built on pointless moralistic self illuding filters that have nothing to do with art? Yes? Yes February 21, 2018 Reply yo mo You like what you like but this review is way off the mark.Really hack review. Dont let the review put you off watching the film. February 22, 2018 Reply Chantelle White I watched this film the twist was stupid didn't make sense the twist just didn't fit in this film. The film is kind of a bore. February 22, 2018 Reply Gerbil I honestly can't quite believe this review. The movie is astonishingly good. The "twist" isn't even a twist, it just makes no sense to even look at it in this way, with this film, which is essentially a fairytale. The movie is beautiful, the performances are bewildering and the story is magical. This is the best movie I have seen in years, and right up there with my favourites of all time (The Shining and King of Comedy, if anyone cares). I genuinely think it is that good. I also believe that part of the reason Daniel Day Lewis is bowing out now is because he wants this to be his final film… he knows he will not make a better one. I could be totally wrong about that of course, but it wouldn't surprise me. February 23, 2018 Reply Marcelo Antezana Just close this channel February 23, 2018 Reply Jake Clancy I disagree with Grace. This is a REALLY good film. Yes, I am a Paul Thomas Anderson fanboy, but I believe I am looking past that when I say I definitely would recommend it to pretty much anybody. It’s surprisingly funny as well. February 24, 2018 Reply Stanley Mizerski sorry….i did not go for that ending…poisoning is serious …..you can die….i really don't understand that ending…if anyone tried to poison me, i would go to the police and press charges….i can't believe i sat through that movie to have it end so ridiculously February 25, 2018 Reply sneakpeeker Oh Grace you're so squimish. Did you ever saw Elle? or Bad Education? You were actually expecting to have such an excentric character with a "normal" healthy and banal relationship? You may think is shock value, but given the setting it makes total sense the nature of their relationship. It's funny how the shape of water can make a bestiality interspecies relationship seem as romantic but the excentric philias of an artist is shock value. February 28, 2018 Reply Kouya Sakurada Do you not understand that toxic relationships are a thing? March 2, 2018 Reply Kefka Amazing film, DDL is incredible as well as the supporting cast the cinematography, score, script and film as a whole is very well done. March 4, 2018 Reply Allen MacCannell Thanks for this review. I wanted to see at least one hetero romance film this year and this was high on the list to see (and I will), but it's sick for anyone not to immediately get imprisoned any poisoner. I'll have to suspend disbelief March 4, 2018 Reply Curtis006 Grace is cool sometimes. This was not one of those times. March 6, 2018 Reply Augusto Montes Megan Ellison did not produce Inherent Vice. At least do a Google search before you make a video. March 8, 2018 Reply Angela J This is was one of the sickest films I unfortunately seen in a long time… for all you said and so much more.

March 29, 2018 Reply leonthesleepy I agree its a little overrated, but this is in no way the worst movie of the year. The Master was amazing however. March 30, 2018 Reply Total Freedom Living Grace, you have a beautiful face and an interesting personality but I can’t come here for movie critiques anymore. You miss so much, too much of the time. April 17, 2018 Reply Easy Green I agree with EVERYTHING you said. What a letdown! Love you Grace 🙂 April 18, 2018 Reply PurushaDesa This is a wonderful film. I profoundly object to referring to any of the events of this film as "a twist". She's applying popcorn thriller metrics to what is a very beautiful, patient, artful examination of a relationship. In short, what it means matters more than what happens. This film doesn't have plot. All the joy is in the little psychological tennis matches, the lavish production, the zingers in the confrontations, and the examination of what it feels like to live with an all consuming creative type. A better comparison is Call Me by Your Name , a much more tender film but with an equally thought provoking ending. But to refer to either one as having a "twist" like a Shayamalan movie cheapens the craftsmanship on display and the thematic resonance. May 18, 2018 Reply Paulo A this lady suffers from mental illness. May 19, 2018 Reply Brian Dorton Obviously the most unrealistic thing about Phantom Thread is that a man that makes dresses is heterosexual. This is Grace and you can watch another video.. Right now! 🙂 June 4, 2018 Reply TheTofuWeazel This Movie Sucked… July 14, 2018 Reply Vincent H. Why is anyone looking to this dumb broad who's into comic book movies about real film criticism? Man you millennials are so misguided July 18, 2018 Reply Mohamad Moharami Is it even criticizing? I mean, I loved the movie but I would never criticize a movie in this ridiculous manner. You're not giving any persuasive reasons why you find the plot stupid or implausible. Your criticism has no logical basis. Of course a man could find pleasure in being nursed and taken care of by a woman whom he's in love with. The plot is dark and odd and that's the beauty of it. August 10, 2018 Reply Erich Von Molder I just watched it, better late than never. At the end of the movie, my wife and I at the same time turned to each and I said, "FU." It was an immediate response! Daniel Day-Lewis wasn't so great, he was acting, like so many other actors, he did his job. The wife was poisoning him and at the end, he approved of it, ridiculous. None of the characters were even the least bit interesting – both main characters were a**holes. Riveting? Heck No. This is a D movie, forgotten in the ash heap of below average movies. You can't even compare this movie and Daniel Day-Lewis performance with any of his other movies. My Left Foot – Wonderful. In The Name of the Father – Wonderful. Lincoln – Wonderful. October 5, 2018 Reply Travis Besst You don't know how to watch movies. November 13, 2018 Reply Paul Allen The Master is one of the greatest films of all time. December 27, 2018 Reply gege p The film is the best rom-com made by a master, I smile through the entire movie. it's in same style with movie like: love me if you dare, if you are married you gonna understand. the music is great, beautifully directed, the dress is authentic and fabulous. January 16, 2019 Reply Nicholas Budny Lmao. This film is about a twisted relationship. It's supposed to be darkly comedic. I think you missed the point if your complaint is that "faith in food preparation is a cornerstone of society" and this film damages that faith.
