An interesting enough visual exercise, but solid proof that video games should remain videos games- movies should remain movies- and never the two shall meet. Ever again.
I'm not sure if it needed that last *twist*, but I sure as sh-- appreciate the fact that Boots Riley tried to go all the way to that point. And this film made me really think about my relationship to work, and my relationship to art.
Also, "I hope you have a month full of good days."
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
For every thing this movie does right, they mess up something significant.
Visually, it's stunning. The plot, for the most part, remains the same and even fills in some gaps and expands on some characters in ways that feel real and worthwhile. However, these plots are filled in by songs that add nothing but run time.
Which would be fine, if the cast could sing them. While the supporting bench is crazy deep, the two leads are....fine.... Both Emma Watson…
