Apart from that it was amazing, highly recommend it, cant wait to see it again!!

I quite enjoyed this odd movie and highly recommend it.

The musical score was spot on, the humour witty and unpredictable, lead characters believable, and my feel after watching - well written beyond belief!

Enjoyable and unique .

Jojo Rabbit was a very enjoyable and funny satire.

It was really able to show how stupid and ridiculous racism is, and did it in such an entertaining way.

While the characters are engaging enough, they are never developed enough to truly care about their motivations or what happens to them.

I was hoping that this film could be profound and entertaining since I love satire, and it has a strong cast.

From a child's perspective, we can see the effects of propaganda and brainwashing by the state, and the power of personal relationships in changing that narrative.

The soundtrack n unexpected choice.

Her strength and compassion while attempting to stay alive in a country that reviled her kind was, at times, riveting.

After all, writer-director Waititi is coming off a couple of brilliant indies (2014's WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, and 2016's HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE) and a major score with Marvel money on THOR: RAGNAROK (2017), arguably the most entertaining superhero movie of the past few years.

Helping to lighten things is hipster anachronistic dialogue like "intense" and "correctamundo" and slapstick set pieces that ease the inevitable tension from hinting at Holocaust.

But overall, it's a entertaining comedy.

It had great pacing and was thoroughly entertaining.

This is cinema at its purest and most enjoyable form, executed perfectly from everyone working on the project.

The tone of the movie is uneven: The first act is a satire; the second act is more of a coming of age comedy; and the third act is a straight-up war drama.

Thor: Ragnarok was definitely the best Thor film and is one of the more entertaining additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

And with the subtext of taking away power from Nazi propaganda and ideals, reducing them to cartoonish manifestations of a boys imagination, this film succeeds to an even greater degree.

The film maintained the perfect balance and never went too far with it's humor, and never spoon-fed the audience with the obvious message of Nazis, propaganda, oppression, and war are bad.

That being said this film was brilliantly executed from the gorgeously detailed cinematography and a stunning performance by all actors.

So many films get overly ambitious with their outlandish stories that they end up crumbling down in their own goals and come off as pretentious rather than creative.

But I still enjoyed it overall.

Nothing happens except that two kids fall in love under the auspices of personal tragedy.

Writer/director Taika Waititi tells the coming of age story of 10-year-old German boy, Johannes (Jojo), who is being brought up in the Hitler Youth during the final months of the second world war.

It is very enjoyable film that I enjoyed with a decent crowd.

Controversial crowd pleaser on a child's perspective of propaganda .

Engaging.

" It looks interesting aesthetically, with engaging cinematography and unique production design reminiscent of Wes Anderson, and it has some clever moments in its first act.

Good comedy very well written screenplay but does slow down I bit

Very entertaining.

It's acting is on point, the emotional levels packed within are touching and entertaining, and the comedy had me laughing extremely hard at the mocking this story told.

It had me laughing out loud various times, is extremely entertaining to watch all the way through and left me with an all around great, optimistic feeling.

I found Sam Rockwell, as a Hitler Youth commander, to be particularly compelling.

Jojo Rabbit was wierd , funny , heartwarming and heartbreaking and I think its definitely worth the watch.

It was wildly entertaining, and hilarious, and made light of how stupid and absurd racism is.

He's exactly the right age and temperament to buy completely into the propaganda that Nazism was putting out at this point in the war.

The film is over the top and enjoyable.

Like I already stated the humor is really good dose a good job lightening up the mood especially towards the end of the movie when it gets really intense.

A fascinating, moving, funny, multi-layered movie experience.
