stellar example of Art House film. watched this due to negative (to put it mildly) chat on Twitter regarding this film. i saw the "child porn" stuff as only a metaphor of Western values, as balance to the the ultra-conservative muslim family life the kid (main character) came from. this movie made me miss the Grand Cinema in downtown Tacoma, WA. where it would have probably been on their "Tuesday Special" screening. damn i miss that place during this upside down 2020.
watchable and a decent example of big screen PG entertainment. just falls too short of its predecessor. very good movie for 12 year olds though.
feel like a keyboard warrior or curmudgeon rating this one 3 1/2. i wish i was 14 again, as i'd like this one better. it was and still is a fantastic movie experience for precocious children and whip-smart young adults. i don't know how the hell that morphs into something "dark and twisted" about the hollywood elite. we're lucky that some Mensa dude obsessed with movie making from an early age pursued his dream.
excellent art house flick. well done. not one to watch over and over, but glad to have come across this movie and given it a watch. recommend.
Timothée Chalamet kills it. wished it was a miniseries instead of a movie. good acting all around. well done.
this was shot like a TV comedy series instead of a movie. a small number of scenes, especially early on, were almost soap opera-ish. i mean studio-ish, if that makes sense? i don't mean it as any kind of compliment. like people who know TV sets and something about movie sets, made a movie project. it was awful, but partly watchable. i got through it, i mean. that's saying something. if you think toxic masculinity is real, and you 100% hate it, this may be for you.
for me this was a very easy watch. had an indie feel but also with an excellent A league cast. well done film.
read the book a couple times back when. very good story. nice to revisit. didn't move out of my chair until the movie was over.
very well done film. engaging from start to finish. grim, but the description lets you know that going in.
watching tv late night, picked this one due to shorter run time than most. didn't move from my seat for the duration. seems anything Kevin Bacon does is good?
good western out of New Zealand. gets right to the point and stays there. no dawdling, although many seem to disagree. i liked the way i felt after watching this movie. a bit surprised the writer-director hasn't done either again since this film.
some of this didn't work for me. the bad (super dumb, not just bad) choices early on by the Lead, his (Adam Sandler) momentary emotional breakdown with no tears, kinda unconvincing emotion. also little pieces that might be unbelievable. Then again, a lot of professional actors praying for some meaty screen time wouldn't have done as well as Kevin Garnett did with the same. just one of many examples of how well done this was.
cool to see a film shot 1 hour from where i have lived my whole life. recognized it all!! extremely sad to realize that the next Lynn Shelton film isn't coming.
when i go to the supermarket i don't think to myself "i'd rather die than work here". this is yet another story about a VERY smart and hard working person or couple who do feel that way and were able to make their american dream come true. without getting a "real" job.
the first part of the movie - what led up to the survival mode which is the second half, i didn't care for. the second half, not bad at all.
second half was much better than the first half. the continuous action scene that many reference was one of the best things i've seen in a movie recently. it was a cure for the couple hundred thousand 2 second (or shorter) scenes i've watched the last couple months of this "Stay At Home" life. i didn't think about what is going on in the world during this movie. that's worth one star right there!
sweet, sweet movie. lack of CGI and trick shots was the result of budget limitations, or, a stroke of genius.
description is correct; good B movie. whether intentional or accidental, the 83 minute run time worked like a charm. the last 30 seconds was a bit of a letdown, but for a B movie that's no deal breaker.
there was no mention of why Paulie was the way he was. he just was. if this movie were to be made today, that wouldn't be so. and the movie would be MUCH less for that. what an over the top, unforgettable performance from Eric Roberts. excellent job by Mickey Rourke, et all, filling in the rest of the story.
very particular type of B movie. not sure if i would have finished this if not under "stay at home" order. would have missed the last few minutes, which were far and away the best part of the film. lead guy was a bit interesting. give an A for idea and effort, a somewhat, um.. a LOT lower grade for execution.
