    I appreciate so much of the craft of this film but for a sci-fantasy epic it’s just so deadly serious with almost no levity that it just is so difficult to connect to. 
    There are few with the abilities of Villeneuve and I will see anything he does but I really wish he would go back to original works.

  • Flight of the Intruder

    Flight of the Intruder

    ★★

    A morally dubious film that doesn’t even know what it wants to say, probably due to too many cooks in the kitchen, from the involvement of the Navy as well as producers. 
    Pretty bad special effects and a story that is almost a decade past its prime. Vietnam films are passé by 1991 (and even 1989 when this was shot). 
    The acting is pretty bad across the board. Danny Glover is woefully miscast. Brad Johnson is a low rent Josh Brolin. 
    Willem Dafoe innocent as usual. He knows the assignment like always. 
    The ending goes on forever.

    About 15 minutes in, when humans dressed as cats started to do a dance routine with humans dressed as mice and humans dressed as cockroaches, I thought I was losing my goddamn mind. 
    I literally had no idea what was happening from one moment to the other. 
    Rebel Wilson looked like she had no desire to be there. 
    Ian McKellan looked like he had no clue why he was there. 
    At no point did I believe anyone was physically where…

    At no point in your rambling, incoherent film were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.
    Everyone in this room is now dumber for having watched it.
    I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
