You can open it next to the footstool store that I’ve long dreamed of opening, Ottoman Empire.

Well, they tried some new stuff with the last trilogy and got royally reamed for it.

Every time I see stuff like this, I get flashbacks to every Halloween growing up when my costume felt SO on point, but mom made me wear a jacket. Read more

Ford looked disturbingly decrepit at the Oscars earlier this year. I’m assuming that there will be many photo doubles and stunt doubles and much CGI correction in this movie. Read more

Triangle-faced monkey”, the best line in cinema history? Nay sir. I say Nay!

She is gay? Nothing in that movie hinted to me that she was anything beyond a goofy film geek ready to go to college. Read more

Part of me thinks these all wouldn’t be such a big deal if they weren’t all so hyped up in the first place.

I mean, no that’s not what I meant.  I meant more that this movie seems to be one giant ironic smirk - they know it’s dumb, loud, and offensive to critics, and that’s why they did it.

The director and cast seem to understand that this was basically a meta-exercise in MAXIMUM BAYHEM, which seemed to elude the reviewer.

Couldn’t that apply to Batman too? Or sort of Tony Stark (who’s at least more accountable for his actions in universe by virtue of being known to the public / having infrastructure around his superheroing)
