Fun fact: my parents named me after Tyler Durden. Thanks mom and dad for naming me after one of the most badass mentally ill terrorists in cinematic history!
Spectacular. Gaspar Noé is quickly becoming one of my favorite filmmakers, as both of the two films I’ve seen from him so far have gotten a 10/10 from me.
I felt repulsed during the tunnel sequence,
however I can’t really say that’s a flaw.
It’s obviously fulfilled it’s purpose to disturb the viewer, and the movie wouldn’t be anywhere near as impactful, significant, or consequential if it weren’t for that scene and it’s presentation, but jesus christ! I nearly switched the movie off…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
“The road wasn’t that long, and I knew I’d soon be getting off. But at that moment, I felt such warmth.”
The camera then pans up, revealing a bright blue sky, which is the only time we see daylight in the film, signifying a brighter future for these troubled individuals.
The film revolves around many characters. All of them have different and unique personalities, but they all share the struggle of connecting with other human beings.
I was able to…
About as dull & flat as movies can get.
This film has absolutely nothing going for it.
It markets itself as a musical, but what kind of musical consists of nothing but terrible covers of other pre-existing hit songs?
Visually repulsive, and what was up with the vocals in this?? For a movie that relies heavily on characters performing songs, the majority of the singing in this was atrocious. Camila Cabello’s voice actually cracked at numerous moments.
Exactly the somewhat modernized but lifeless rehashing of the fairytale that it was advertised as. Don’t watch it.
Has none of the 90’s charm that made the original somewhat watchable.
Just an over abundance of references to other pieces of media owned by Warner Bros, and at times forgets to have a story of its own.
Most of the movie just felt like one big advertisement for other WB projects.
LeBron James gives one of the worst acting performances I’ve seen recently in a major blockbuster movie, which is funny considering he literally plays himself.
