    Straight up - FUCK THIS MOVIE!
    If you want a cinema induced migraine - go ahead and buy a ticket.

    I hadn't been inside a movie theater in six months, and my first visit back I'm subjected to this nonsense. I'm glad some people are getting something out of it, I simply do not get it. I watched I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS the day before, and that was a walk in the park to parse out as it had…

    an interesting mess.
    It's as bleak as you'd expect from McCarthy and from a director whose brother killed himself while he was making the movie.
    But the bleakness is not the problem.
    It's that the film feels like monologue porn. Every single character gets a speech. Everyone speaks in parables and methods. It gets frustrating after a while.

    The weakest performance by far was Cameron Diaz. And it's not even her fault - it's Ridley Scott's. Did she really need…
