Monster Hunter 2020
Reign of Fire walked so Monster Hunter could jog; please stop criticizing straightforward blockbuster genre work about soldiers fighting dragons for bad writing.
I know I'm a filthy apologist but this is the most polished PWSA film yet! While it lacks that kind of formal experimentation that one can usually expect from Anderson (ambitious editing/ narrative motifs that would probably get ignored by most anyhow), it's got fantastic special effects and a straightforward pacing structure that reflects its video game…
The Circle 2017
Watch Emma Watson and Tom Hanks give a 2-hour TED Talk about why privacy is bad, I mean good, I mean bad? and about why freedom is good, I mean bad, I mean good?
It's seriously an abhorrent work that inflates the very real issue of privacy to the point of belittling it. Alternates between laughably bad, uncomfortably cringey, and just flat-out boring. This is depraved, hateful cinema.
