    This has two nays from our forum here, and the trailer is almost a FYC for Kidman, but her in this role feels intriguing enough to get me.

    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    Her neck is too small for her head-and-hair combination in this movie. It shouldn't bother me, but here we are.

    The wig/hair situation in this movie is laughable. Wait until you see Toby Kebbell's look.

    pokémon detective pikachu - 6.5
    monsters, inc. - 9.5
    the wind - 6.5
    cat people - 7

    I kinda dug all the ridiculous make-up work in this movie. Helped make it feel like an adaptation of some pulpy noir comic from an alternate dimension.

    I kinda dug a lot of things about this movie, even though I nay'd it. Everybody is really giving it their all. But ultimately, the script sucks. It just completely sucks. It's so underdeveloped it ends with a big plot twist that has no actual impact on the story. My only thought when it ended was, "Jesus, who wrote this?"
    Making yet another effort again in 2019.

    Liberté (Albert Serra) ****
    Hala (Minhal Baig) **˝
    Atlantics (Mati Diop) ***
    Ema (Pablo Larraín) ***˝
    Krabi, 2562 (Ben Rivers, Anocha Suwichakornpong) ***˝

    Kidman is seriously miscast. Kusuma does what she can but yeah, that sucky ass script destroyed any chance this had at being somewhat intriguing and worthwile.
