Another Hollywood ego-piece with absolutely no consideration for the audience experience. I didn't read reviews (saw the hype), and went to see it after awards season. The score and cinematography are beautiful, but the interest stops there and frankly becomes a distraction after about 20 minutes in. There is no reason to care about the characters as we don't know them. Thus, we don't care what happens to them but for obvious thoughts such as "Well, that guy died. Sad." It's a giant bore where I struggled to stay awake.
If there is some mysterious, cerebral metaphor here, it missed the mark. Not to mention that I despise films that have some hidden agenda. That said, if that was the goal here, they didn't even do a good job. Sigh. This movie was a bore, and I even held out hope for about 55 minutes.
Spoiler alert: hair apparently doesn't grow in space.
I see a lot of movies and rarely review them, but this one? There's literally zero plot, much less a plot with holes. I'm all for suspended belief and all, but this? What a waste of time.
I'm also beginning to believe that RT critic's reviews should all but be ignored anymore. Audience reviews tell the real truth these days.
This is comedy! There's never a dull bit, and Chappelle spares no topic when he slays this crazy environment we find ourselves in. Critics reviews? All 17? That should give you a green light to get comfortable on the couch, get popcorn and prepare for an hour+ of freaking genius!
Ignore the critic reviews. If you enjoyed Green Book, you'll most likely enjoy this film as well.
