    “That was some bullshit” -Me, out loud after watching the ending in theaters. 

    And to think I was actually expecting to like this movie. Don’t get me wrong, it is an experience, but mostly for all of the wrong reason. As time goes by and we sit through all sorts of weird and creepiness, you keep waiting for the film to go out with a big bang.

    Or The Hours of The Slog, is Oscar bait and pretentious filmmaking at its finest. Needlessly long and wildly dull, it’s hard not to feel incomplete and unsatisfied after watching this film. Netflix yet again pandering to the Letterboxd-type crowd, hunting for a Best Picture winner; well this certainly will not be it.

    Benedict Cumberbatch takes a break from playing a misunderstood prick and instead is just a giant asshole throughout. The first half of the movie has little to…
