What's it about? All the 'critics' were raving about that film.


Probably best not to ask a guy that only watched 10 minutes of it. You can't review a movie based on 10 minutes. :essence:

It's about a young guy who wears shades and is always listening to his iPod Classic, who drives a car for a band of criminals and is a terrific driver. According to the trailer, the guy finds a girlfriend and at some point the head cheese of the gang turns on him and threatens to kill his girlfriend if he doesn't keep driving for them.

All the characters were insufferable: after the opening scene in the movie, when they display how awesome a driver the young guy is, there is a long take of him going out to buy coffee, and he's dancing to some funky music, and bits of the lyrics are like written on the walls or light posts, and he's supposed to be funny because he's a bit clumsy and cool, and his name is 'Baby', so that's also funny I guess, and then once he comes back with the coffees to the gang, one of the criminals gets tough on him (out of absolutely nowhere, just so that the audience says 'I get it, he's the bully in the movie'), the head of the gang says "leave him alone", and the other two members are all over each other (so the audience thinks 'that's funny, they're really horny for each other'). At that point, we stopped watching. The characters were just too cartoony and the movie tried too hard to have a "cool" factor in the fact that there is loud, 'vintage' music playing for most of the movie and as a spectator you're supposed to find that really cool. Plus the shades and the iPod Classic = head blown with coolness.

Agreed, but you can get a very decent idea of how the movie is being directed, how the characters are designed and how they're trying to tell you the story. If I'd watched only the first 10 minutes of Inglorious Basterds, I'd want to watch the rest of the movie. I saw 10 minutes of this shit and knew it fucking suuuucked.

My wife and I both had today off so we caught a matinee. I agree, it was a pretty enjoyable movie for what it is, easily the best of the Thor flicks. The thing that continues to impress me with the Marvel movies on a whole is they continue to kill it with great casting.

actually a pretty good review.
i thought the flick was ok for a heist film, but i don't know why it was so lauded.

I just watched The Hateful 8. kinda slow in the beginning and long but i enjoyed it.

I loved it :lol:
I found Kate's character very annoying, but when I feel very down, I love watching it.
I watched "While We're Young". I was a bit disappointed. I don't know if it's because I related a bit to it, but more like I could totally see my brother in Ben Stiller's character.

Never heard of this film, but recognized the title's allusion to Pope, one of literatures most influential crossover influences between antiquity and modern lit....and most brilliant minds. It was said of Pope that at times he had to disconnect from Shakespeare entirely in order to write anything at all because the weight of shakes genius was that intimidating to him. Thanks for the heads up.

It's a movie by Michel Gondry. His films are amazing visually.

If you have Netflix you should watch Jim and Andy. Jim Carey is insane and was a nightmare to work with on the Andy Kaufman movie. Interesting stuff.

By the way...the only good Jim Carey movie was Dumb and Dumber.
