I'm not usually ever bored in movies, and even if they're bad I can enjoy hating them, but this was just boring and lazy from start to finish. The CGI looks great, but when the animals look so real it strips the characters of the humanity that can only be expressed in cartoon animation. Every single moment of this movie was several steps below the original to the point where it was frustrating to watch. It felt like every actor was phoning it in, even James Earl Jones, who was delivering the same lines as he did before, just worse somehow. This movie was too long and yet felt like everything was rushed down to a high school first time table-read. The only good thing about this movie by a long shot was John Oliver as Zazu who did a really good job and I enjoyed any moment he was on screen; perfect for the part. Scar's voice and lines were by far the most disappointing. I could never think of a situation in which I would watch this instead of the original.
I don't know why so many people are trashing on this, it is a perfectly enjoyable, hilarious movie, if only because of its lead characters carrying the whole thing. The main villain almost becomes a subplot, which is fine because its very cliche, and it makes room for more scenes of Kumail and Dave who have great chemistry and are also hilarious on their own. I hope this could be the start of an even better second movie. This was like Get Hard, but better.
I love slow movies/shows that take their time and show you the landscape in order to lend to the tone and style of storytelling, like in Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad. Here it's done mostly well. The first half could take out like 10 minutes of driving clips and had some completely unnecessary filler, but the second half weeds out all of that stuff leading to the probably the funniest, most intense ending of tarantino movie. Even with the slow, I really enjoyed this movie and the story it told, I just thought a little more could be trimmed off. But I always love Tarantino because you know you will see something unlike anything you've ever seen because he just doesn't make movies that are even close to resembling something else, and OUATIH is no exception.
I wish I hadn't seen the trailer because that gives away so many scares and mouth open moments throughout this, but it was surprisingly good. The acting was great, the story was fun, and it's a clever concept that nobody has really done in this was before. The suspense is really great. The CGI could use some work and the humans were taking way more damage than someone would be able to, but definitely a fun recommendable movie for late friend' night.
This started off as interesting with a lot of good subplots that could unfold and devolved into the worst movie I think I've ever seen. It went from mildly creepy to just silly antics that anyone could have written. Any metaphor this was trying to put across is marred by the graphic and very unnecessary sexual content and when this movie tries to be scary it ends up more being awkward or mildly humorous. I should've walked out. I didn't like Hereditary but I would still watch that over this any day of the week.
