    The best part about this movie was seeing how the printing press worked. It made me root for The Times over The Post, the feminist character was the least competent person in the movie, and it was completely lacking in subtlety. I came out feeling disgusted that this was the best they could do, and that they had the gall to market the movie as feminist.

    Promotional material was 10/10, they're still on cereal boxes and microwave popcorn packets even in February.

While there were a few inconsistencies, all would have been forgiven, had further episodes lived up to the expectations it created. However, when you take into account that this is in fact a movie, the moth holes transform into the gaping craters that teach us more about trypophobia, than the world in which…
