Bad film do not go see!
not so bad it's good? I started a thread yesterday, was thinking of going tomorrow. Looked like an expensive trainwreck so I wanted to go see
It isn't even so bad it's good. Just strangely put together, no build up or tension, nothing of note.
Just watch No Country again.
I had this vague idea of famous actors all dressed up as cheetahs and having sex with cars and saying a load of stupid crap and it seemed amazing
but everything everyone was saying was of note to me. Ridiculously clunky dialogue. The bit that summed it up was when Fassbender called Cruz "A glory" and she went "what?" like she'd briefly jumped out of character to say 'wtf are you talking about what is this'
but now I don't remember it being that bad
this post makes no sense
go see! Great entertainment. The actors seem confused, loud audible sighs from other people in the cinema when they start talking bollocks at each other on the phone AGAIN, man so committed to storming out of the cinema in disgust that he almost falls over trying to get his coat on. Lovely.
Not just the cinema experience mind. The film has MANY daft highlights.
I did laugh at some of the really odd things the dialogue threw up. Cameron Diaz was absolutely terrible but everyone seemed to phone it in. I knew it had bad reviews but it was cheap cinema day and I thought I'd go see it for a laugh. Pretty much worth my time though, interesting to see how badly a well assembled cast and crew can get it. Sounded like Tommy Wiseau wrote some of it.
Some people walked in the cinema was 20 mins to go, sat down for 5 mins, then left. No idea what was going on there.
Yet it's hard to hate. I think people hate it because their expectations were for something else (No Country perhaps). There is some great dialogue in it but the story is muddled and there are a few odd, extraneous scenes (the priest one being the main offender). Diaz is well out of her depth too. Killing Them Softly did what this tried to do a whole lot better (though most people hate that too for some reason). It's worth it for Fassbender and Bardem. One for late night telly and low/no expectations.
