    Fun fact: my parents named me after Tyler Durden. Thanks mom and dad for naming me after one of the most badass mentally ill terrorists in cinematic history!

    They played a commercial for the US Air Force right before the movie started and everyone in the theater erupted into laughter.

    The New Beverly Cinema screened the three hour and fifteen minute long ‘Redux Cut’ of this projected on IB technicolor 35mm film, and you can definitely feel that runtime, however that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. This feels like a long, nightmarish journey for both the protagonist and the viewer, entranced yet trapped in this surreal and dystopian…

    This could have just been three hours of establishing shots of the gorgeous landscapes of Taiwan and closeups of spiderwebs and it still would have been a masterpiece. The word ‘stunning’ doesn’t even come close to doing this film justice.

    On top of having action choreography that is simply out of this world, (second only to The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter) and some of the most magnificent cinematography you’ll ever see, there is also a captivating and unpredictable storyline that kept…

    Has none of the 90’s charm that made the original somewhat watchable. It’s just an over abundance of references to other pieces of media owned by Warner Bros, and at most times forgets to have a story of its own.

    LeBron James gives one of the worst acting performances I’ve seen recently in a major blockbuster movie, which is funny considering he literally plays himself.

    Got to see this at the Regency Village Theater projected on 70mm film which was definitely one of the best movie theater experiences I’ve ever had. Watching this in in a beautiful theater full of over a thousand moviegoers who were laughing and crying along with the movie while it was being projected on stunning 70mm was magical.

    As for the movie, it’s nowhere close to being Anderson’s best but it’s still pretty remarkable. Paul managed to make a truck running out of gas the most intense moment of 2021 cinema.
