I watch films so I can avoid my problems and be as pretentious as possible.
Beautiful to look at, but the story is just missing something. Florence was no doubt the star of the show, she's so good at showing raw emotions. Chris Pine was also great. Harry's acting left much to be desired (people were laughing in my theater, oof). At times I could feel how long this movie was. And that twist... interesting direction but I can see how it fits into our cultural zeitgeist right now.
What I think fails this movie…
Every day I grow more terrified of when the big guy comes knocking on my door, saying Nirvana is getting a biopic of their own.
“This ain’t no nostalgia show, we’re gonna do something different” says Austin Butler as he stars in a surface-level musical biopic that was churned out to make nostalgia money. Way too long, at least 45min could have been scrapped. I will say that the artists that did the motion graphics deserve a round of applause because they looked great. And hey, at least it wasn’t as bad as Bohemian Rhapsody!
"Cool girl is hot. Cool girl is game. Cool girl is fun. Cool girl never gets angry at her man. She only smiles in a chagrin loving manner and then presents her mouth for fucking. She like what he likes. So, evidently, he’s vinyl hipster who loves fetish monger. If he likes girls gone wild, she’s a mall babe who talks football and endures buffalo wings at Hooters..."
I can't believe Amy Dunne destroyed all men's ideal of women in one! fucking! monologue! Will I ever get sick of this movie? The answer is no!!
