This was fucking stupid.

I wasn’t as impressed with this as I was hoping to be. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield were cute together, but I hated whoever wrote their dialogue because it was melodramatic and stupid. I did really like the “spider” movements and the way he used the webs in action sequences though. The overall plot? Also kinda meh. I look forward to the sequel, I think these characters will be better when they’re not also in an origin story.
Great movie but I’m really bummed I missed out on the 9 minutes of Star Trek footage.
I still can’t get over how much the anaconda’s mouth looked like a vagina.
Probably my favorite Studio Ghibli movie that I watched this year.
Can we just talk about how fucking stupid the end of this movie was? Ugh, what a waste of two hours. I don’t think I’ve hated the ending to something so much since I watched the last 120 seconds of the BSG finale.
I wanted to like this, too. But holy hell, the ending was a total cop-out and completely ruined the rest of the movie for me. I think part of the reason I’m so annoyed by the ending is that the rest of the movie and the Looper universe had so much potential for a genuinely interesting story and instead just, ugh. It totally flopped. Hated it. Absolutely hated it.
Don’t go see this movie.
Holy crap you guys. Go see this movie. I can’t even put into words how great it was, but oh man. So good. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen such fully developed, nuanced, and well-realized characters on a movie screen. On TV, sure. But in a movie? That’s a rare find.
So…should I read the book?
Watching this movie was a gift to my boyfriend for his birthday back in October. I’m not great at sitting through super long movies, so basically I enjoyed having seen this movie more than I enjoyed actually watching it. I’m glad I saw it. I appreciate its place in the history of cinema. Would I watch it again? Probably not.
This movie did not need to exist. THAT SAID, it was surprisingly progressive-ish, as action movies go, in that the female characters were actually more developed and interesting than the male characters, so much so that Alyssa Rosenberg at ThinkProgress made a very strong case for it being a superheroine movie. Also, if you enjoyed The Raid: Redemption, it’s basically a souped-up, special-effectsy version of that.
This was way weirder than anything I previously knew about it led me to expect. I feel like I would have appreciated it more had I seen it as a kid first, but it was still a really fun story and I liked the little girl’s character journey a lot.
I want one of those cat-bus things. And one of…er…whatever Totoro was.
These guys are hella serious about their bar bouncer duties.
Hnnnnng Daniel Craig. Adore Judi Dench. But let’s be real, how freaking adorable was the new Q?
