This seems like a fair review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZZGFWjn9uc

Haha, could be accurate if I came anywhere close to going through that jabroni's filmogropahy. I still haven't even seen PTA's sewing movie.


Part of me admires that noodles and RR are pulling a Weekend at Bernie's by propping up contemporary cinema and prancing around pretending it's not dead.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

Don't forget that those worthy gentlemen make their livings in the industry. They each have a vested interest in keeping it alive.

Didn't like so far what I saw of about 5-10 minutes of the beginning, elephant bit, the golden shower, and the beginning of the party. Will report back lol.

At this point we need everyone in this thread to rate Chazelle's previous work. His 3 features are pretty close for me so if you ask me tomorrow I might have a different answer, but here is the current state of affair:

Whiplash - 8/10
Lalaland - 8.5/10
First Man - 7.5/10
Those 2 episodes from that one Netflix show - 5.5/10

Whiplash - never watched it
Lalaland - never watched it
First Man - never watched it
Those 2 episodes from that one Netflix show - never watched them

;-)

I didn't enough to pay attention. I kind of half assed watched it while on the laptop, it just wasn't very engaging, too much shit (more than the elephant, lol) being thrown at you constantly. I suppose if you were in a theater where you had to pay attention you might have gotten more out of it. Who was Diego Calva supposed to be? He reminded me of Peter Sellers in The Party, lol, and Brad Pitt just reminded me of Cliff Booth from Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

Maybe if you had your Hollywood history down pretty good you would get the smaller references. I guess Margot Robbie was based on Clara Bow.

When you see obviously stupid stuff right at the get go from Damien Chazelle , i.e. no truckdriver in his right mind is going to do any towing or agree to get towed with a rope you always use chains, I just lose interest. Who greenlighted this, the music seemed to modern, the (I think DJ mentioned) the dialogue was too modern, glad I didn't pay any money to see it.

Oh yeah, coming back in to say - this movie kinda sucks. Bad Boogie Nights ripoff.
