    Funny on how I've seen a few reviews compare this to Before Sunrise... which humors to me because the more apt comparison is of course Before Sunset.

    Either way it isn't nearly as good as either one.

    It had a few nice moments but the score got on my nerves, way too loud and way too obvious.

    Eh, another one the Academy got wrong. Good film? Of course, but not even close to the best film of the year. But it's about the movie industry so let's just give it the Best Picture Oscar.

    and FWIW I thought the ending was shite.

    Words cannot explain how much I loathe this 'movie' (I use the term loosely as not to insult any other movies) Very few films have had this kind of reaction on me, I very rarely give anything below 2 1/2 star rating as I can usually find something I enjoyed about almost any film.

    I re-watched this with my youngest. She is 10, sure it's rated R but only because of the language, and she hears worse everyday at school. (Not to mention from her mother, but I won't go there) To no surprise, she really liked it, she was excited when she recognized Hans as being Snape. I had to explain a few 80's references to her, but overall it still stands up as one of the best action films of all time.
