I watch as many films as I can, as often as I can, and I want to share my opinion with those who care 🎥
This will probably be my most controversial film-related opinion of 2022, but I really didn't like Elvis.
In fact, I thought it was quite bad and I couldn't wait for it to end, which is a shame because I am a fan of the director, Baz Luhrmann.
I just found Elvis insufferably boring to sit through; nothing about it interested me, it was extremely messy in it's storytelling, and the dialogue was uninspired.

Admittedly, there was some horrific imagery, some of the visuals were creative, and they tried to conclude the story in an interesting way, but the problem was that I had already checked out an hour beforehand and so I didn't care about anything that was happening.
Ultimately, Choose or Die is completely boring; events happen without…
