And with this, let us pray, lies the last and final desecration of JRR Tolkien by the mighty idiot Peter Jackass.
Better than I was expecting. Bale was given some semi-retarded cheesy lines to say during the first 1/4th of the film which had me in fear of another overrated p-o-s. I was worried that the scene where 1 of the pilots was heckling the survival training video was going to be the high point of the entire movie but it improved later on. 90% is still overrated but the audience 74% is closer to the mark.
I fear that many "critics" will rate a movie by how good it was "back then" rather than how good it is in today's standards and/or will overrate a movie because an iconic name (or 3) is attached to it. Add to that the herd-followers and next thing you know; a mediocre movie has a 98% rating.
Here is Scorsese in his teething stage. Good acting talent but the characters lack magnetism. No continuity nor adhesive to the boringly thin plot line. Mainly a bunch of random, often unessential, wise-guy scenes (that have since become cliche) loosely connected to an overdue ending.
Not worth the exaggerated rating nor the time and $ that that I was thus fooled into spending. Worth 2.5 stars but given .5 as a correctional influence on the bloated rating.
Guess I'm not a Lynch fan. Seems like all of his movies can be watched by skipping ahead 15 secs watching 1 second then repeat, without missing much of anything; if anything was ever really there, aside from evidence of a weird and somewhat sick writer/director.
Unrealistic cheesy characters awkwardly acting out one weird empty sick-creepy scene after another right down to the fake robin at the end. More disturbing than thrilling. Seemingly written & directed by an untalented creep. Isabella Rossellini and the '70 Dodge Charger deserved better. The only intriguing aspect of this movie is it's overrating. Oh wait, that's right, I forgot, any movie over 25 years in age automatically gets a high rating regardless of quality!
