    I still haven't gotten round to starting to watch my Christmas movies. And I STILL haven't caught up to all my favorite tv shows. Well... at least I got 2 weeks off from Friday to catch up. But I want to watch ALL CHRISTMAS EPISODES before the big day. Damn...

    I am so fucking ready! That trigger happy del toro mutha fucker! Haha gotta say I’m pleased brolin and toro aren’t against each other which sort of makes sense with del toro having a huge grudge against cartels for what they did to his family. But I wouldn’t be surprised to see with a wtf moment at the end like the first one.

    So bright reviews are bad. Why you ask? Well my first guess straight off the bat was ornate mustn’t be pc or have leftist politics.

    http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment...e-gets-ripped-by-critics-20171221-h08zvt.html

    A complaint from the critics was ‘republicans will try and pass this movie off as law’ lollllll
    So I essentially was right. Critics and movie makers are making all things political these days so it’s not me imagining things! These cunts actually want more and more pcrealist90 and more left and will condemn movies for not being ANTIFA propaganda pieces

    Apparently it's to do with the writing and direction. From what I could see from the reviews it covers the racism perfectly, Will Smith is good and Joel Edgerton is excellent, but there's no effort put into the side characters and the story gets lost and confused in poor writing.

    That said, the reviews aren't all bad. If you look on Metacritic there's a review that gives it 0/100 and says it's the worst thing ever created then there's a review that gives it 100/100 and says it's amazing.

    I'm still going to watch it and I wouldn't be surprised if I enjoy it.

    Bro I watched it, it’s a good movie, I can see why rotten tomatoes who loved the last Jedi hated this movie hahaha. There were strong women but it wasn’t done in a feminist political way, they just made sense without rubbing it into your face. And Will Smith says different races aren’t summer than others but whwre different lol which goes against the whole every race is the same and equal type thing lol, I think you’ll enjoy it man

    Who here remembers when movies only got an overall positive review or an overall negative?
    After watching the new Star Wars movie and checking reviews it seems movies these days are mainly mixed in the reviews?

    It used to be if most people said a movie sucked, then it sucked.
    Same with if most people would say the movie was a must see, it generally was.

    I picked that up a while ago. Haven't got around to watching it yet but the trailers remind me of a more serious version of weekend at Bernie's.

    Watch "The Big Short" the other night on Netflix.

    @Hacky McAxe @CroydonDog probably a movie you'd both enjoy..

    It's about the collapse of the US housing market, and hedge fund managers that were buying up lowly rated stocks.

    Very interesting movie and based on real life.
