What am I missing? I thought it was a total snoozefest
I hear great things about it...but it looked lame. Anything redeeming about it?
Nada...I don't get it
They could have done so much more with it. I ended up being irritated by the kid and hit and miss sub plot lines.
Watched it on the plane. The realness of some of the dysfunction had a little bit of a documentary feel for those of us from challenging beginnings, but that was the only vaguely interesting thing to me, apart from the kid-gets-older-for-real device which was interesting but seemed like a boring trick once I realized nothing was happening.
What should I watch next?
Obviously I can't depend on critics reviews
At first I thought , damn, Patricia arquette looks really good..then I realized what was going on
Summed up perfectly.
LOL 'it's as if she returned to her 90s form, what wizardry is this!'
Watch Snowpiercer and imagine the Polish Filly trying to tell the people of the Dawgshed to 'be a shoe.' You can thank me later.
Do you like Wes Anderson movies? (I cannot do those hobbit / ring flicks.)
I don't think I have seen any.
They are usually overly-quirky/precious for me, but I did enjoy Grand Bud, if you are in an absurdist sort of mood
Have you seen Gone Girl yet? I haven't seen the movie but adored the book and heard the adaptation was pretty spot on.
did someone say boyhood?
Birdman Is better
I, too, loved the book but I really didn't like the film. I know movies rarely stand up to the book, but even expecting that, I was really disappointed. And Ben Affleck is a terrible actor.
Check out the cumulative viewer reviews on sites like rotten tomatoes and yahoo movie. I frequently marvel at the disparity between the critics and viewer reviews and about 95% of the time I agree with the collective wisdom of our fellow movie-goers rather than the effete snobby nose in the air critics. Try it, it works
"I'm not saying it was a bad movie, Gar. It's just not what I was expecting."
ugh bummer. guess i'll cross that movie off the list. Did you read her other books?
I always thought that was strange, and then I found out RT uses a different methodology between the two numbers, which is ridiculous:
The first mark is the percentage of positive reviews from approved Tomatometer film critics. A small icon of a red tomato marks “fresh” reviews with 60% or better positive reviews. If positive reviews are less than 60%, it is marked as “rotten” with a small icon of a green splattered tomato.
The popcorn icon is the percentage of Rotten Tomatoes users that have rated the film 3.5 stars or higher (out of a maximum 4 stars).
