    ★★★

    Going into this, I've heard that the movie is disappointing. My expectations were set low. I also haven't read the books. I also watched this movie in 4K. All of these things flavoured my response to the movie. All in all, I enjoyed the movie. I think it was structured well and I wasn't left thinking there were any major plot holes.

They could’ve cut a quarter of this movie and we would’ve been left with a solid story with decent visuals. Instead I was bored and rolling my eyes.

    The pacing of the movie was weird. It didn't have a traditional beginning, middle, and end. It felt like it climaxed and then ran through a bunch of backstories that didn't really move the main plotline forward. It was just there to satisfy the secondary characters. It comes back to the main characters, which ends up with a happy ending, but at a point where I really didn't care if there was one or not.
