    What's with veteran filmmakers being so addled by the film business environment that they are compelled to make Hollywood satires?

    This was good. My friend who hates everything populist hailed it as the return of "an idealistic cinema" and "great science fiction to the big screen." I found it striking as a Midwestern sci-fi...

    Galfiniakis was expert. I expect something big from him at some point, not to jinx it or anything.

    This was a nice paean to the abilities of mediocre people aspiring to big, poetic things. Meta...

    You're totally on point about how Fincher manages an array of performances (some nice and nuanced, others broad and overtly satirical) to create something telling and delicate, but I'm just honestly...

    He had a number of great "He definitely did it" deliveries.

    Fugit and Dickens were my MVPs.

    West does his duty as a young, brazen filmmaker, plunders the Jonestown story verbatim in order to, with surprising intelligence, evoke the contemporary social landscape he surely notices around him,...

    Think the first film is intolerable, so I reacted much better to this one. Car chase, kitchen fight, incredible. Ending incredible, with its melancholy suggestion of never-ending fight.

    This film really takes off with thesaurus joke.


    Simple, unobjectionable story ridden enough with good gags and a climax that successfully and inventively ties up all the emotional arcs.

    Yeah, I did think that some tongue-cutting was supposed to happen. But the film somewhat confidently depicts Evans from the beginning as not the best or most natural leader.

    I personally didn't...

    The implausibilities are built into the thing (the film itself is an implausible blockbuster/polemic hybrid). It's pretty much all Gilliam although it shuffles about awkwardly pretending to be your...

    They really did eff up the entire logic of the story, though. Which may be the point, but it's just too laughable, and Ducett's tacked-on arc is equally...

    Okay, the story for this is more than a little basic, but that's also what makes it good: the future lies on the backs of a trio of people who want to "die" (via walking and giving up all his powers,...

    Thought this was quite enjoyable, its odd (whimsical) subverting of expectations and all. Prime 90s entertainment: enthralling, engrossing, very silly, very inventive. Clearly this is bound for the...
