    “I could finally soar... like a pigeon.”

    As to all your criticisms, I don’t disagree on any particular point. All I know is, I enjoyed watching most of it*… even as it’s definitely too long and still left a load of info for the “what happens next” text.

    * Does Leto know he’s getting laughs with almost every line or does he think he’s giving a serious dramatic performance? Who knows. Who cares.

    “Why can’t we start old and get younger? I envy you. I really envy you!”

    I really liked quite a lot of this, not least the supporting performances from Harry Dean Stanton as a perfect Movie Dad and Annie Potts as a great Movie Best Friend. But overall the plot is pretty rote, and the rushed third act makes the ending feel unearned — a feat that’s almost impressive when the ending is so predictable. Shame.

    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?!
