    I finally understand the plot and it’s still not good

    THE TWO TOWERS vibes, for better and worse. Like DUNE: PART ONE, it’s a tremendous IMAX experience and a pretty good sci-fi movie that’ll get better with each rewatch. I’m finally convinced that Austin Butler can act. I’m still not sold on Timothee or Zendaya.

    Would have rated this lower upon release (its dialogue and soundtrack scream late ‘90s) but this is Citizen Kane compared to the past few years of Marvel movies. A modern remake sounds fun in theory but won’t be able to take as many chances as this movie. Horrible CGI yet wonderful practical effects. Funny how bullet time shows up here a year before The Matrix.
