Think blade runner 2049 is at least 40 mins too long
It got shite reviews
At least. Me and my mate were relieved when it was finally over.
Hypothesis . Like that other great hypothesis of modern science, homeopathy.
So, you're so bothered by some people not liking Prometheus that you descend to the level of comparing a scientific hypothesis to homeopathy
Was just telling you, mate, take it or leave it. Like it or not, the idea wasn't just pulled out of a screenwriter's arse like most of the guff in Prometheus. Because cave painting = a trillion dollar space flight makes much more sense, doesn't it?
Fortune telling and homeopathy are perfectly comparable scientific hypotheses. They're both horseshit. Arrival's premise is that learning some squiggles lets you foretell the future. Only a fucking idiot would compare that with any straightforward sci fi flick, whether Prometheus or some other.
Mind "fucking idiot" would also be a good description for someone who had this argument at length before, only for it to become apparent that he hadn't even understood what Arrival was about, at all (I didn't mind explaining it to you though).
Baffling how bothered you are by this
The Pirates of Somalia
Was alright but expected more to happen
What I find more baffling than anything is that he actually tries to argue that Prometheus is any good so regularly! It has very few redeeming features at all. An abomination of a movie.
I was off work due to whatever virus is going round the last couple of days, so naturally spent it on the sofa drifting in and out of consciousness watching films.
Pick of the bunch - The Handmaiden.
I expected to turn it off after 5 minutes (already had a headache and thought the subtitles would fuck me up) with the intention of trying again at a later date but I was hooked from the start. Visually stunning, dialogue brilliant, and the plot definitely kept me interested for 2hrs+.
Thought it was superb, gets a good 9/10 and is available on Amazon Prime.
Jeepers Creepers 3.
Easily the worst of the three with some truly awful acting.
I switched it off after 20 mins but tbf it did start ok.
Worst one I've seen lately "Bright" with Will Smith
Total & utter garbage
Gave Hot Tub Time Machine a rewatch
canny funny for a daft film 7/10
looking forward to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing
Saw the Getty movie yesterday ..
Is it related to TexasCM ?
Aye shows him as a youngun. Well, late teens/20s
Not sure if it would be better for fans of TCSM, there might have been parts that I missed
