Lowkey a more impressive directorial effort than Belfast, lmao. While this movie definitely has problems with the script and the pacing, at the end of the day it's a big, ridiculous and extravagant movie about a quirky man with a mustache accusing everybody on the planet earth of murder. So, there's definitely fun to be had here, even when it ends up taking itself too seriously at times.
Oh, where do I even start with this one?
Firestarter is an absolutely awful, awful movie through and through with almost no redeeming qualities to spare. The only thing I enjoyed was the John Carpenter score. The writing is so exceptionally terrible, on-the-nose and the characters are so awkwardly written into the story. The audience has absolutely no attachment to any of the characters and the pacing of the film makes it feel so slight and inconsequential by its half-assed…
