I'll never stop running!
Yeah, and I'll never stop chasing you - I'm relentless, I'm like the Terminator.
I'm more like the Terminator than you!
I said it first, you're more like Sarah Connor, and in the first movie too, before she could do chinups.

A brilliant funny movie that still respects the sadness that happens in life but tries to show you that fun and laughter can still be our main focus.
I think this is the best so far of Taika Waititi's films and recommend it to anyone to see. I saw it after a long-tiring week at work and I half expected to nod off in the cinema theatre because I was so tired. But I didn't. I laughed and chuckled most of the way through the film and came away re-energized and very happy I had gone.
Would see again if the opportunity came up, which is likely as most of my friends are raving about it and a few are wanting me to go with them to see it again!
