I struggle explaining how I rate movies.
Top 4 are my favorites I saw in April 2021.
The last 30 minutes of this were absolutely phenomenal. The prior 75 minutes though just moved too slow. I normally am okay with slow burns but this moved a little too slow for my taste. This did produce some really tense moments though and did a great job of setting a mood, just took too long to really get going. Monaghan & Affleck didn’t quite recapture the magic from Gone Baby Gone but it was still cool to see that duo back on…
I was so fricken excited to revisit this & am ecstatic to report this does not disappoint on a rewatch.
The self-aware humor sprinkled in throughout this reminded me of The Other Guys, albeit not nearly as politically savvy.
I had completely forgotten how loaded this cast is. You obviously put this movie on for the hilarity in the duo of Hill & Tatum and Ice Cube. But this also features a very young Brie Larson & Dave Franco plus a super short…
