    Straight up - FUCK THIS MOVIE!
    If you want a cinema induced migraine - go ahead and buy a ticket.

    I hadn't been inside a movie theater in six months, and my first visit back I'm subjected to this nonsense. I'm glad some people are getting something out of it, I simply do not get it. I watched I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS the day before, and that was a walk in the park to parse out as it had…

    The cinema is essentially my church, and Malick the pastor to deliver one hell of sermon.

    Like every Scott Derrickson film I really wanted to like this but it simply ended up not working for me. It played almost like a Stranger Things adjacent horror adventure that was way more Jesus-y than I expected, that had clunky dialogue that the kid actors didn’t know what to do with, and a premise lacks tension despite being about a very scary premise and concept. 

    Ethan Hawke is great as always and the masks he wears are truly amazing.

    What the fuck is Ben Foster doing in this movie ? Sure he is believable as the shithead son of Robert Duvall but he nearly derails a perfectly enjoyable albeit predictable sports drama by straining so much I was worried he was gonna himself a hernia. Thankfully he only had a few scenes. Everybody else is having a great time.

    There's more wonder and creativity in three minute film than in the 3 hours of Interstellar.

    an interesting mess.
    It's as bleak as you'd expect from McCarthy and from a director whose brother killed himself while he was making the movie.
    But the bleakness is not the problem.
    It's that the film feels like monologue porn. Every single character gets a speech. Everyone speaks in parables and methods. It gets frustrating after a while.

    The weakest performance by far was Cameron Diaz. And it's not even her fault - it's Ridley Scott's. Did she really need…
