    ★★★½

    This movie was not sublime in any sense. Even the scenes with people just hanging out felt like action scenes where the emotions always turned to 11. And this is with a protagonist being apathic half the movie. I actually liked the over the top drama and action. Just needed a tiiiny breathing room. A Joss Whedon farmhouse scene. The sound was amazing and seeing my city gettig blown to pieces was chiling and beautiful. A very crazy pictures-esque movie. 

    That ending though. Just felt sloppy. Like they had written theirself into a corner and got tired of their own movie.

    ★★

    Feels more like a Dino Crisis movie then a Jurassic Park movie. I would actually love a decent Dino Crisis movie.

    ★★★½

    It's cool to see where Noah Baumbachs Frances Ha and Lena Dunhams Girls has drawn a lot of inspiration from (Claudia Weill even directed an episode of Girls). But i like both Frances Ha and Girls a lot more then Girl Friends even though it's hard not to fall in love with the characters (as in Girls).

    ★★★★

    Awesome dialogue, beautifully shot and humor that works surprisingly well today (e.g. dude puncturing a un irritating kid's balloon). Simple and brilliant plot that doesn't need the world blowing up to keep the viewers attention.

    The bad stuff. Horrendous acting now and then. Background projection in very weird places. I guess most people find these "flaws" charming but i didn't like it.
