    There is  definitely something interesting here, but I can't help but feel like trimming this movie down would improve it dramatically. There is a lot of extra time spent setting a tone, so your mileage may vary on that. It's very pretty, as per usual for Refn. Anyways whatever!

    I almost gave it 3 stars for fear of being called sexist, but what are you gonna do? A bad movie is a bad movie. 2 stars.

    I feel like its title doesn't do it any favors, but that could just be me. Regardless, everyone said it was awesome so I thought I'd give it a shot. As it turns out they were right, it was fantastic. Miles Tellers is awesome. That guy can really drum, which adds a level of authenticity to those intense drum scenes. JK Simmons is hilarious and terrifying and brilliant all at once, as is standard for that guy. Perfect casting all around. It's like a sports movie about music.

    It feels good to be enthusiastic about a new Star Wars movie.
