Overrated garbage - I switched off after 40 minutes


And that was 40 minutes of my life wasted.

Wow, there are a load of pretentious people on these boards.

Over-acted, badly written wordy pretentious claptrap.

1/10

It starts getting from good to excellent at the 41th minute :] (not kidding, i know how you feel, i tought at the beginning that's some bad sundance artsy mumbo jumbo, but it quickly drew me in & it's a good if not very, movie imho.)

Hillarious! XD
Uberlim wasn't kidding. The movie takes off from almost precisely 41 minutes in.
Your loss, dude.

You don't get to read half a book and then call the entire thing a 1/10 pos. same goes for this. You can switch it off, but don't bother rating the movie as a whole. It was an excellent movie in my opinion. Your loss.

That always frosts my hide when members state that shut of movie off before the end and then rate it. It's no wonder the IMDB rating system is a crock. Every once in a while I check out the stats. Only one IMDB staffer rated this and that person gave it a 2.0!!?! I don't get it at all.

As these guys already mentioned, it did pick up after 40 minutes.

But too bad --> everything after an hour ends up just being some hallucination. . It would have been a decent movie otherwise. Not taking the spoiler into account, a 6 is about right, otherwise a 3.

I see a lot of big, condescending words on a screen with nothing to back any of them up.

Pretentious: attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed.

There is a marked difference between watching or reading a piece of media, absorbing it, ruminating over it, coming to understand it, and discussing the matter with other people that possess brains and enjoy critical thinking and mildly engaging in a piece of media and attempting to discuss it in an artificially inflated academic sense with very little in the means of lexical ammunition.

What was written above?
Perfectly arrogant, condescending, and biased, like myself-- you're most welcome. There is not, however, a single pretentious word, as I would happily argue with you for hours, not for the satisfaction of feeling smarter than you, but in the hopes that once you've seen pretension at its best, you'll savor no further desire to explore the depths of internet trolldom.

By the way-- I assume, by virtue of the fact that you sense pretension on a board about a rather artistic piece --that you lack the mental faculties required to absorb the message this movie has to offer.

I'd recommend watching it again, but you're right: this movie is a waste on people like you.

Apparently, from his history, this guy has a habit of reviewing movies that he claims to dislike or hate. What does that say about a person?

reply

Have you ever noticed how people with his type of IMDB history post their OPs but never return to respond to their replies? It's drive-by trolling at it's best.

reply

That's exactly what it is. I can go to any board at all, claim to have watched 40 minutes of a movie, and turned it off, and my trolling is finished. They're just worthless people.

Matt ~

Thank you. I truly could not have said it better.

I just ran across this film today on Netflix and just finished watching it. I often come here to see what others are saying and often find similar mouthing breather remarks as the OP's and very little by way of discussion. Admittedly, some films don't require much deeper thought but this one is an unexpected gem.

Typical of IMDB rating though for this to be ranked at only a 6.something.

Thanks again.

EDIT~ Everyone on this thread is right on the money except the OP and Damian5000.

Really a lazy way to view a film. It was quite good and had you had an adult attention span you may have really liked it.

reply

Overrated? Who overrated it? The film critics? Also-- the dialogue is the redeeming factor of this film. Creeping through your activity though, your taste in films isn't really... well... good.

reply

Yeah you could have been jerking off to your gay porn with that 40 minutes. Oh well I am sure your life as a burger flipper has plenty of free time.


My feet smells like *beep* Its because I stepped on dog poop.
