I love Mark Kermode. Think his reviews are fantastic. Don't always agree, but he is honest about his feelings on films he sees.Movie critics are part of the corporate media. The days of Pauline (or even Siskel and Ebert) are long gone. They are there to cheerlead and gatekeep the movies you are supposed to watch. It’s quite frankly disgusting.
Most likely is me but:
I was recommended this movie but was so boring.
Absolutely vile movie. Léolo. Basically the movie starts with a guy jerking off in tomatoes, a women fells into the same tomatoes at the market and one gets into her vagina and she gets pregnant with a kid that she names Léo.
Then you have him as teenager fucking a liver then having it cooked full of cum and them eating it. The family also sells their shit, litterally.
Considered a masterpiece. Like WTF people are on what drugs to enjoy that?!
Now Tenet on the other hand…The film is a refreshing take on the action thriller genre. The layering of scenes (dreams within dreams) was fun. You can quibble about the acting (I can) and the forced love story but it’s a solid movie. It would be pretentious if it hit you on the head with its ideas, but the narrative energy was focused on the robbery.

This movie fails on the most basic level.
They also failed at every level of filmmaking. They were so full of themselves, that they ignored all the basics, script, pacing, cinematography, dialogs, editing, everything even a film student knows. But why should they, the critics ignore that too. Because you have to have at least a basic knowledge of movies to understand that, which nowadays is not a requirement for a film critic anymore. We also had that in video games.They tried too much female empowerment with it... but did literally just a mens movie with women and thats why they failed hard with it.
Even the cast was bad. No female actors with charisma.
Felt like theatre students made this. So incredibly boring back to front, with a clever little ending which isn't worth the rest of the running time.
It's a testament to how scary a movie It Follows is that for days after watching it, you walk around thinking up survival plans - should you hide, stay on the move forever, pass the haunting on to someone else?
When I wrote this on this board after it came out, people almost went bonkers.Everyone complains about the last jedi ( which to be fair does suck) but I feel The force awakens is actually worse. It's literally just a crappy rip off of a new hope. The only reason jj cant be sued for plagiarism is due to Disney owning the fucking thing.
Agreed, Get Out was a very mediocre film that only got traction because of featuring evil white racists. I didn't even bother watching Us or The Twilight Zone after seeing their trailers and reading some non-leftist reviews.Anything by Jordan Peele. Remember when you needed more than a premise?
