    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

    β˜…β˜…

    The opening sequence has a setup, payoff, and conclusion. So after that you’d think you’re in for a treat but then a gratuitous opening credits montage begins. If by then you think the movie can’t get any slower, it does. There’s nothing wrong with slow, but slow AND boring that’s just something I can’t recommend at all. Such an insanely stacked cast in such a slog of a film should make you weep.

    FIRED!

    Β It’s funny that first time audiences, that hadn’t seen a trailer, are treated to 10 seconds of Mike Myers rhyming like the source material before that gets dumped and are instead treated to like an early 2000s version of a Looney Tunes character with multiple costume gags, nonsensical dialogue, and manipulation of the laws of the universe. This movie is terrible but incredibly interesting in it’s madness. I was surprised how much of the dialogue I had buried in…

    Mediocre opening, entertaining first 2 acts that lead into a boring 3rd act, and millions spent on the soundtrack. That’s pretty much the whole movie.

    I found this to be slightly better than the first film. If you are a fan of Emily Blunt, I would say she takes more of a back seat in this outing in order for Millicent Simmonds to step up to the plate. The tension was well done and the pacing was good. Like the first one if you scrutinize the script you can find some plotholes like the newspapers in the first film for example, but if you’re not…

    I really enjoyed this film from a technical aspect because there were a lot of neat camera tricks used all throughout that gave the film a dreamlike quality which coupled with the intro and the narration, created a unique experience.

    Rube Goldberg-esque CGI Paddington making a mess of XYZ scenes did not do it for me and there were like at least 4.

    Not as bad as I remembered, actually a nice chill watch. Pretty funny still in some scenes and with a positive message on top can’t complain too much here.

    The movie lost me a bit with inconspicuous time jumps that you can only infer from subsequent dialogue and Al Pacino's facial hair. Al Pacino like always gives a great performance. Overall the movie was really good, it is about police corruption where Al Pacino starts as a rookie that wants to be as honest a cop as possible and things go from there.


    This is my 1000th logged film πŸŽ‰

    Decent thriller with a couple action sequences that were pretty good. The villains have that buddy hitman dynamic but more serious than funny. Honestly the scenes with them were my favorite part, Angelina did okay and the child actor was good for his age. Jon Bernthal plays Jon Bernthal, you know what to expect from him at this point. Overall I would say it’s good for home viewing.

    I’m in the weird category of people when it comes to musicals I think. Most people either LOVE them or HATE them and honestly i’m somewhere in the middle. This is one of those musicals that just didn’t click for me like others do. It’s got some nice piano melodies and a vibrant color palette but besides that it felt pretty meh to me.

    As it stands I found this to be the weakest sequel to date. Chris Rock gives a satisfactory performance although it’s on the verge of being bad. Heavy focus on Rock and the mystery of chasing the killer clue after clue, and kill after kill, which is a change from focusing on a group of soon to be victims or going from trap to trap like a sideshow but that’s where I have the most fun in the Saw sequels…
