    Of course young Jonah was obsessed with The Simpsons and wrote spec scripts

    This was really solid and actually pretty funny at times

    The Q&A with some of the younger main actors was cool too, even if they weren't that articulate (not that I or anyone else should've been expecting that from kids their age.) Only disappointing aspect was at the end when Sunny Suljic kinda shouted out XXXTentacion and several people in the theater groaned

    Might actually catch this again this Monday, hope it's still as good. One issue I had with this in hindsight is that it was pretty heavy on the r-word and f-word at times. Yes, I say this with the understanding that the time period of the film is right there in the title

    Artists/entertainers usually get on my nerves when they get a more "serious" persona but I'm really enjoying all of Jonah's promotion for this. He seems really happy

    Still good a second time, not amazing just a solid directorial debut. Could've benefitted from some more subtleties imo

    Also, this thread title should be fixed to "Mid90s" with no space in there

    I've spent the last week devouring all of Jonah's "PR" for this movie and I have to say, I honestly haven't felt this inspired in a long time. I am in love with the place that he is at right now and it has me even more excited to watch the film than I was before. If anyone hasn't listened to his interview on The Bill Simmons' Podcast I would highly recommend it. He also did an episode of the Big Picture on Channel 33 as well.

    I’m kind of afraid to see it in theaters because of this. I’m worried it will remind me too much of the toxic environment from when I was a kid who was super into skateboarding instead of the joy of our little neighborhood crew. Haven’t decided fully yet.

    This was good, agree with what's been said here that it's not amazing but a great debut for writer/director. Definitely reminded me of KIDS.

    For an 84 minute film I wouldn't have minded a little more closure or another sequence before or after what we got. There's a handful of turning points that didn't feel motivated. I did really enjoy it though, A24 continues to kill it. Mid90s definitely could have benefited from a little more subtlety at points as others have said, and I wanted a couple more scenes where Stevie's home life and friend life intersect. Maybe one more scene with his mother and brother apiece.

    Really looking forward to whatever Jonah does next.

    EDIT: Still thinking about this movie - it's really grown on me, I think the runtime just left me wanting more. I'm reminded of Linklater and maybe even City of God at points. And while I was watching it I had a really good time and really laughed. I was too harsh in the first version of this review, so I've cleaned it up and took out some spoilers. The film's funny, it's got heart, it mostly feels authentic, and it announces auteur Jonah Hill. Fuck yeah. A-

    Hadn't heard about this film until he was talking about it on an episode of Complex's Sneaker Shopping, but the passion and energy he showed when talking about it has got me very interested. Definitely gonna check it out.
