  • JJ Abrams owns me. Again. Still.

    I can't even with how much I loved Star Wars; I need to see it a few more times in theater.

    • I think I loved it? I loved certain things about it. The cast was pretty uniformly great, but I'm not sold on emo-Adam Driver, tbh, and not just because he killed his daddy, which I thankfully realized was coming during the movie and managed to make my peace with before it happened. If something happens to General Leia, however, I'll wait to see how things unfold, but it was nice getting the gang back together and seeing a reboot of sorts that wasn't all gritty and bleak.

      Also, I cried like a little girl when we finally saw Luke. I was worried they'd hold off until the next movie, but after Han died, I NEEDED that.

      • I liked it a lot and I'm not even a big SW nerd! It was such a great HOmaaaaage to the original and had the same sweet tone and slightly corny/sincere take that it completely won me over.

        I thought emo-Vader was HILARIOUS but rightly menacing, which is maybe not what they were going for, but I felt like it was so perfect you could draw a line from whiny Hayden Christensen as pissy Anakin to Adam Driver and his amazing big bouncy hair as Kylo-Ren. IS THERE ANYTHING FUNNIER THAN CHANGING YOUR NAME FROM BEN TO KYLO REN and donning a black outfit? Like it's perf. He's so Hot Topic!
        Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

        • Concussion was straight-up terrible. Like a TV movie. Will Smith's accent was FINE, and I'm sure he had an Oscar boner but it's a terrible, dumb, boring movie that feels deeply contrived. It's amazing to me because this topic is so upsetting and disturbing and they turned it into the most basic H'wood story.

          • Saw Room last night and it was great, Brie Larson and the boy were outstanding.

            • Joy was way better than the press it's getting, IMO. I liked it!

              • I hated Joy! But I usually don't agree with O'Russell - I don't think he can do serious right

                • I loved J.Law's performance, and I thought it was surprisingly effective. I usually think O'Russell movies are really over-rated but this one is underrated IMO.

                  • I loved Lawrence. But I hated the overuse of montages to rock songs that serve to take away a moment. In my honest opinion, that's what the script is for

                    I don't think The Fighter would as acclaimed as it is if O'Russell also worked on the script (like he did in almost all his movies). That being said, I don't like The Fighter either

                    My optimal O'Russell is American Hustle. Fun movie that you don't expect too much from. I made the mistake of reading Silver Linings Playbook before watching the movie and as such I see it as unrealized potential that ultimately cheapens mental health issues

                    edit:
                    Lately I've been going through Roger Ebert's list for movies, and I have to say some of these seriously rock

                    • Watched Batman v Superman tonight and didn't hate it like half of the internet did. I mean, it was way more comic-booky than the Nolan movies, it was 10x more interesting than Man of Steel, and it wasn't as indulgent as Snyder's take on Watchmen. So, y'know, pretty good (for a DC movie)! Oh, and it was like Eisenberg's spastic psychopath was trying to make up for Cavill's stone face. This ain't a spoiler, really, but Gal Gadot looks like a great WW. Her accent tho. Except an American accent never made sense either if Diana's peeps are Greek. Whatevs. ETA: She's Israeli - I totes thought "French."

                      • Saw Rogue One on Christmas Day. The very last scene - omg - it did give me hope.

                        But now? this year can just fucking end already.

                        • I really liked Rogue One. Glad I saw it before Carrie Fisher died, tbh.

                              • I wanted the songs to be peppier, but Emma Watson was such a perfect Belle. I'm convinced the peeps saying they were iffy about her just wanted to see an actress that looked like a cartoon.
