    I Care a Lot

    ★★★★

    I’m so happy that Peter Dinklage can now play a badass in a movie without a hint of irony, and the audience is completely on board.  

    Meanwhile, I was also completely on board with the climax of this movie being Dinklage enacting unspeakable horrors on Rosamund Pike’s character. I can’t say this is a better movie without that torture porn, but I can also accept the more conventional route they chose to go.

    A special shout out to score composed by Marc Canham…the music wasn’t obtrusive, but it brought an energetic tone and elevated many scenes.

    Paul Walker: Gone

    Dwayne Johnson: Gone

    Jason Statham: Gone

    Sung Kang (Han): Appearance makes you realize that nothing in this shit matters.

    Gal Gadot: Based on the above, I assume she will be back for F10.

    Kurt Russell: Everytime someone said ‘Mr. Nobody’ I cringed. Such a stupid name!

    Charlize Theron: 2 day shoot in a small see through cell with no toilet.

    John Cena: Not Dwayne Johnson

    The ‘Tokyo Drift Crew’: Apparently hooked on crack for the last 15…

    How can a movie about being horny be so bland?

    I would have preferred a version of this that was re-written to be an 80’s teen sex comedy.

    As is, this resembles a risqué ‘ABC Movie of the Week’ about loving yourself (physically and emotionally).

    Yawn.

    I always knew the revisit couldn’t compare to my original theatrical viewing, where my popcorn nibbling literally sounded like the Gremlins had joined the screening.

    Still, the hook is a good one, the set ups are Jurassic Park level intense and the monsters are surprisingly unique (even though at their most ferocious they resemble hard-core pornography).
