When we were younger, my sisters and I really loved the 1993 film Homeward Bound. We watched it over and over again.

I’ve wanted to see this film since I first saw the trailer. Even though I was super freaked out by bald Matt Damon.

It’s like Marvel didn’t let him eat for months before filming. Bleurgh. It’s not right to take something so pretty and purposefully make it look bad. Especially when, in Downsizing, it feels super unnecessary. And Matt Damon’s head looks so huge and round without hair. What’s going on with that? Still, I managed to get over my anger at hairless Matt Damon and finally saw Alexander Payne’s new film.
