Firstly, before we discuss the film, can we please appreciate this reunion between Cole Sprouse and Adam Sandler at the premiere, once more? I’m not crying, I promise – there’s just a bit of, um… dust… in the office.

Now let’s take a look at some of the initial reviews that’ve been floating around the Twittersphere. They all seem pretty damn supportive.

I’m sorry, but the blessed Tomatometer does not lie.

The general consensus seems to be that the film is a non-stop panic attack… and I’m low-key okay with that.

To be honest, I’m just thankful that my boy The Weeknd has shown up and, judging from this tweet, come through.

Uncut Gems is slated for a nationwide release October 25. Quite frankly, I’m impatient and that’s too damn far away. But in the meantime, let’s feast our united eyes on the official trailer and brew with bubbling excitement.
