I live in the 3.5-4 star pocket.
Where are his glasses? He can't see without his glasses
Keeping this guaranteed 5 dicker in my back pocket, and oh boy, it did not disappoint. I can see the similarities people are drawing between Lydia Tar and Terence Fletcher, both unforgiving perfectionists. Whiplash doesn't sugar coat the musical-prodigy genre and really drills down on the music though.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Tár is to be celebrated, it's such an amazingly detailed movie with so many ingenious little moments that expose who Lydia Tár really is. She's a renowned world-famous Conductor. It follows her busy life in the throes of big orchestra politics. It slowly unravels through a series of bad decisions and victims of her manipulative struggle for power.
You can tell Cate Blanchett is connected to this role. She would know the artist's struggle with trying to balance life while…
I'll start by saying I liked it! Florence Pugh is absolutely hilarious and the action sequences memorably exciting, but why now? The only reasons for further butchering Black Widow's origin story is the shameless introduction to Yelena Belova (who'll assume the Black Widow mantle) and possibly Secretary Ross who'll become the Red Hulk trying to cure his aliment; that or ScarJo had a wicked holding deal with Disney. Still enjoyable but nowhere near the impact it would've had 7 years ago.
Is there a Joss Whedon cut that's shorter?
It was a fun popcorn zombie flick that was VERY action oriented. If you take it as that, it was fine; if you expect more character development and a realistic depiction of a zombie dystopian future... maybe Army of the Dead is not for you. I'm always surprised by Dave Bautista's comic timing and seemingly effortless ability to command a scene. Overall, I was hoping for more.
