    Okey, so if Oppenheimer didn't come out this year, Lanthimos's thing would have won everything. Fortunately, for us cinephiles, there is always room in a year for any kind of quality cinema.

    This is an incredible production, from all the technical and beautiful aspects. Awesome costumes, make-up, production design, score, cinematography all under the flashy yet precise direction of Lanthimos. The cast was also out of this world, Emma Stone leading the pack. Also, I would like for her to…

    This might have not aged in the story or social commentary but sure has aged in all the other departments. Also there are a lot of minuses in the script area.

    Only in a dystopian future you get killed at work and still return back to life as a robot that can work 24/7. And to think this was considered cool back on the 80s.

    It's a guilty pleasure, for sure.

    I see that this was a remake of a 60s movie with the same name. Don't really see the point of a remake when this doesn't look 90s at all but at best late 70s. I will add the 60s version in my watchlist, see how it compares.

    Liked how Christopher Reeves retook his role as Superman, in a way.
    Not Carpenters best.

    Joe Jackson is father-of-the-year next to Fritz Von Erich. This is Beau is Afraid if the father was the toxic element in the life of a child.

    And hey, they could have been great, they had the mentality and the drive, if they sticked to their path, not their fathers.

    And to be so trampled by their father they even lost their voice.

    I would have given this half a star more if it had another sport at the center of this.

    Even David Fincher is prone to mess up using camera shakes in close combat action. I will let this one pass because it's one of the subtle ones.

    Guess Michael is not one to waste good scotch.

    It was a fun watch, a fun film filled with details that merit multiple rewatches because Fincher is a methodical, meticulous director who loves to glamourise details.
