    I would argue the exact opposite. What makes Sicario great is its form, attributable almost entirely to Villeneuve and Deakins. The writer, Taylor Sheridan, has a knack for no-nonsense storytelling...

    I was referring more to the fact that the 70s Joker (Phoenix) would exist as an iconic figure in the present-day of The Batman, and therefore, it wouldn’t be strange for modern gangs to be paying...

    If it’s set in the same universe as Phoenix’s Joker, then it would make sense for there to be random people in clown makeup without necessarily meaning Joker is part of the story.

    I’m with ETM. I’m surprised this movie could inspire such a strong negative reaction. It’s too ‘blah’ for that. Admittedly, it is getting way too much credit generally for clearing Netflix’s low...

    All the more reason I’m impressed that the filmmakers chose to make the conspiracy nut angle such a prominent part of the story. Even before the rise of the current lunacy to the online mainstream,...

    It’s funny - I would’ve really agreed with this in 2012. Turns out that the film may have actually underplayed the prevelance of grifters like Jude Law’s character and the conspiracy theory...

    They executed the central concept well, but the ending is too abrupt which makes the entire experience feel largely shallow. They flirt with big ideas but reduce them to the most tired and obvious...

    Has the bones of a decent action flick and benefits a lot from Charlize Theron’s presence. However, the craftsmanship and direction are a little lacking. Has the sheen of a direct-to-video effort. ...

    It would seem strange for them to rely so heavily on de-aging technology considering Fury Road became a cultural phenomenon precisely because it eschewed CGI in favor of practical effects wherever...

    Not saying that any of it is well-executed from a logic standpoint, but I believe that is what the film was trying to sell. Fair point about it not making sense to continue after she’s been...

    There is no “DNC” or “establishment” at play. You have a single moderate candidate who finally got on level ground with the liberal candidate and blew him up. So far, Sanders has shown no ability...

    He does have a motive.

    If the brother sets her up for a crime, she returns her $5 million inheritance to the trust, of which her brother is surely a beneficiary. Making her look insane in the...

    No, the architect of the home never lived down there. He built the bunker in the event of a North Korean missile attack. His only connection to the plot is that that original housemaid used to work...

    Shrug.

    I liked it well enough. Not as relevatory from a cinematic aspect as The Force Awakens but certainly watchable and a competent closure of storylines. Maybe I’m grading on a curve, because...
