Rating History

The Lobster
The Lobster (2016)
3 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

There's a place in society - and in the box office - for "art for art's sake." The Lobster sits squarely in that place. There was nothing really wrong with this movie but it simply wasn't particularly entertaining. I watched Bunuel movies to see where movies could go but most of the time not enjoying the ride that much. Same with Ibsen. Great theater but existential dread is a burden to sit through. So, congratulations Yorgos, you made a fine movie. So beautiful, so what.

Interstellar (2014)
21 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Good enough to sit through for a few hours but not really a good movie. Eminently avoidable. Nolan takes on far too much, covering the waterfront of ethical and social ills, technology, human interface issues and pure science. Somewhere in all this you, as a viewer, get lost...not lost enough to not follow the movie, just lost enough to not care. It's like he played with time and we, the viewers, wound up a bit out of sync. Tackle half as much with a little more insight and depth and you'd have a really good movie.
