Reviews for myself, because I love movies but my memory is terrible. If they also resonate with others, that's a bonus!
There's echoes of Parasite (though I suppose this came first) here with the class struggle, dark humor, and violence. However the broader scope of this turned into more of an action movie, both for better and worse. There's quite a few goofy choices in the ending here, but everything leading up to it is so good that it doesn't matter too much.
Pretty solid depiction of the insanity of GameStop's stock trajectory and how it was driven by the conviction of RoaringKitty/DFV followed by Reddit's /r/wallstreetbets explosion. The casting is great and it's pretty funny throughout. However, it tries to play the David vs. Goliath angle a bit too hard, ignoring a lot of people that got swept up in the possibility of gains without understanding the consequences of poor timing and over-leverage.
Some nuance in that narrative would have been better…
Feels like this tries to cover too much ground, and consequently ends up jumping around and not getting into more detailed exploration of the various aspects of Stewart's life, though the result is still fascinating.
That said, the de-extinction effort does get a lot of attention and it also laudably includes viewpoints from people who oppose what Brand and others are striving for, which definitely is rather controversial and polarizing.
Equal parts corny, predictable, and contrived. And yet for how dumb it can be, there's actually some pretty suspenseful moments and Sandra Bullock has a pretty solid performance when the script doesn't have her acting totally clueless (mostly only early on, but she's still acting sexy and fun even then). Basically stupid but still mildly entertaining.
