None of the actions in this movie, or the responses to those actions, made any sense whatsoever.
Kristen Wiig is so good at being sad.
There wasn’t any reason for the camera to be moving around that much.
That box of Honeycomb cereal just wouldn’t go away, would it?
I paused this movie several times to assemble kitchen furniture, if that is any indication of how frustrating it was to sit through.
The story lost all of its momentum when it got sidetracked and became a home invasion movie in the middle.
Further proof that Logan Lerman is great in everything. I would comment on Shia LaBeouf’s performance, but he didn’t really do much.
What was with the tanks firing color coded laser beams? Otherwise, the movie was just as dirty and gritty as you’d expect.
There wasn’t any.
Long movies like this make me want to start a “Bring Back Intermissions” movement.
There’s no way the most important scene in the movie happened in the timeframe in which it was presented.
The bad guys would have had to wear top hats and twirl their mustaches while tying people to railroad tracks in order to be any more over the top.
It was nice to see Major Dad is still around, though.
Other than the fact that the two actors playing the main male character looked nothing alike, there isn’t much to talk about here.
If there had been any more Budweiser in this, I would have expected Spuds McKenzie to show up.
Another movie that seems content merely to exist.
There was too much setup and not enough payoff, and the movie couldn’t decide what to do with the main female character, but dang it if this wasn’t obviously a deeply personal labor of love for Guillermo del Toro.
The “modern” kids that bookended (and occasionally interrupted) the main story were annoying.
The character designs, and the execution of those designs, were truly unique.
Finally, an animated movie without any of this. They all seem to have some these days.
This is one of those movies that I will eventually forget about completely, but, then again, I never regretted paying to see it.
Monster movies like this require two things: suspense and bad decision making…and this one has plenty of both.
They focused on the wrong human characters and didn’t give the interesting ones enough screen time.
Godzilla looked great, but the other monsters didn’t blend well with the “real world”.
Godzilla was too busy destroying the city to promote any products.
Yet another one I would have enjoyed in the theater…if I had only known.
This movie was a good example of dimensional transcendentalism**…bigger on the inside than it appears on the outside.
**I had to look this term up. I’m not familiar with the source material.
Why did the trailer make Augustus seem like such a huge jerk? He was actually pretty tolerable.
The way they handled texts and emails on screen was interesting.
Hazel may be the first movie character in history to actually use a case for her phone.
When will I learn to stop judging movies on their promotional materials? I’ve been expecting not to like this for so long…but here we are.
I’ve been wrong about other movies, too. Tell me which ones, and you could win a prize in TIWAM’s 3rd Annual “Tell Me I’m Wrong” Contest!
The story itself was interesting, and the ending was beautiful, but the sloppy editing made most of the rest confusing.
Jeremy Irvine did a great job of being a younger Colin Firth, and even Nicole Kidman was okay. Perhaps her limited screen time is to credit for that, though.
The color scheme made the movie feel old, which is exactly what they were going for, I’m sure.
If trains counted, this movie would be in serious trouble.
This is the most frustrating movie I’ve seen in a while, and the most frustrating part of all was that it didn’t need to be.
Usually, this type of movie stays tense throughout, but this one let the tension slowly build, like a frog in boiling water.
For some reason, I always seem to think Ryan Phillippe is a terrible actor, but he’s actually been really good in everything I’ve ever seen him in.
Plus, Chris Cooper and Laura Linney are two actors I don’t get to see enough of.
The harsh fluorescent lighting in the indoor scenes helped add a little to the tension.
It was so convenient that there were all those Dell computers in the hallway to replace the “dinosaurs” they had in the office.
Also convenient of that Deer Park water truck to block traffic later on.
Movies this great deserve better than to be one half of a Double Feature DVD set, that’s for sure.
This is a mystery movie that’s easy to follow along with, yet suspenseful enough to remain exciting.
I’ve found my favorite Denzel Washington movie. Or maybe I just love movies where the main character barely moves.
There were some really terrible day-for-night shots in what was supposed to be the afternoon, and a lot of the movie was really dark.
If a soda can is turned nutrition-facts-forward, it’s a pretty good chance it isn’t in the movie for advertising purposes.
This was definitely a pleasant surprise. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it much at all.
Each new scene felt like they were trying out a new genre to see which one stuck. Pedro Almodóvar is the only one who can completely get away with that in his movies.
Dax Shepard was actually the biggest surprise of all for me here. I didn’t even know he was in the movie before I saw it, and I didn’t know he could do more than just stupid comedies.
They went a little extreme on the lens flares a few times, but not to J.J. Abrams levels or anything.
There was just enough of it to annoy people like me who look for it.
It was a little long, but I’d sit through it again.
