    “Look what came out of my egg sac.”

    It’s a perfectly fine (i.e. reasonably entertaining) kid-aimed action-adventure movie — which, all things considered, is more than it really has any right to be. I mean, it does seem a bit ridiculous to see grown adults complain about its faithfulness to the games. Ooh, running from left to right really fast collecting rings — that certainly sounds like it has enough narrative content to a fuel a 90-minute story!

    “Sometimes I wish I would just die so it was over.”
    “That’s just what life feels like sometimes.”

    Was expecting the dark comedy laughs, which it thankfully delivered; was not expecting to find it quite so emotionally effective, or if it to take a tired old aphorism and make it feel like it really meant something. For a film about teenagers popping, that’s pretty impressive.

    Don't understand the negative reactions to this at all. It's not perfect (could do with a bit more clarity in places), but overall I thought it was a really good sci-fi noir.

    Also, lol at the people calling it unoriginal while also saying "it's like a Black Mirror episode". Yeah, that comparison didn't get worn out two-dozen like-a-Black-Mirror-episode films ago. You'd think Charlie Brooker was the first person to ever write a story about the dangers of future technology...

    Surely one of the most misunderstood and consequently underrated movies ever made.

    And how damn stupid were critics back in 2001 that (as per the Rotten Tomatoes critical consensus) they couldn't realise the film's insane product placement was satirical?!
