I thought it was really thin, one of those movies with absolutely no drama, just a series of expected events occurring one after another - and I came into it knowing nothing about the story. Where did she get the glass of whiskey in the book shop, did it just appear? Did they serve booze in book stores back then? The pre-mixed, pre-iced drinks at her agent's party... what's the deal with that? There was a two second cliche binge scene "on the town' where neon signs came in to focus. A "chin-chin" cameo. The third act and resolution were so unearned it made me LAUGH! Oh, one small spat and your man turns her in? The meeting with the lawyer and the speech in the court room - did any time pass? Did she do any soul searching? Did she get in shit for destroying evidence?Toggle Spoiler There was no sense of time in the whole movie, was this weeks, months, years?

It was a trash film, a mediocre sorry about a woman suffering from depression who wrote some letters. To her credit though, I thought McCarthy was uncharacteristically great

great. dunno why it took so long for me to see it. & damn, that Dolby Atmos soundtrack is rich. hopefully more small films explore the possibilities of dense sound design

Seconding the disappointment with can you ever forgive me, which is such a bummer because diary of a teenage girl was one of the best surprises I’ve had with movies in a while. So many different avenues to explore with forgery, and all it really goes with is, “look at these charming assholes.” And like, grant and mccarthy are charming, sure, but it just ends up feeling really dull.

fascinating

the whole point of this movie is to accumulate global box office and definitely plays to a low common denominator but somehow i'm not mad at its lack of respect for me there's a weird art to its clinical approach and i appreciated it more than the mcu's openly smarmy way of ripping people off

and it definitely created a world i would have loved to explore more or at least taken even a few seconds every once in a while to let me digest

on the official sgp scorecard 'the wandering earth' gets 5.5 Sweet Gregory Pectins out of 10

there's a 5-10 minute stretch that is set in your deranged dreams after you eat too much red meat watch demolition man, the super marios bros movie, and blade runner at the same time and immediately pass out

i actually liked it more than the first one. it still spent way too much time with chris pratts insufferably boring character, but the music was much better and tiffany haddish's queen was better than anything in the first movie.

Watched Burning, and was liking it a lot until that ending. :? I was feeling like “finally, someone got the feel of Murakami right. The three main actors are great, and it got the main characters right. The protagonist was kind of bland as he should be, and the girl was super charming. Loved her miming eating the orange and her African dance. Then suddenly it’s turned into a bleak murder revenge flick, which I was not expecting only because it seemed like the filmmakers would be too smart for it. I guess they got me!Toggle Spoiler

Alien 3 (Assembly Cut) - This movie is so underrated. I don't get why people hate it. I mean, I do get it but there's a ton of great stuff in this, especially in the Assembly version which I hadn't seen before. Honestly think I like this better than Aliens, which I find cheesy in a lot of ways. The setup and the last 20 minutes of Aliens is amazing but I feel like it drags in the middle and the Marines kind of annoy me. The story in 3 is more intriguing and there's a lot of great character work. I especially love Charles Dance's performance. 8.5/10.

It's always weird when I remember that's Fincher's first film. I've only ever seen ALien, I should fix that.

Felt really uninspired. I kept looking at the time on my phone and was feeling antsy to leave for the last hour of the movie. Probably didn’t help being relatively drunk in a kid’s movie.

Also saw the Joni Mitchell 75th Birthday tribute concert last week. Was a little too long but there were some inspired covers. Seal brought the house down.
