    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.

    It's one of those movies you have to have the brain switched on for else it'll make no sense.

    Just watched Money Train with Woody H, Wesley S and J Lo. A movie I usually watch this time of year as the movie itself is also set between Christmas and New Years Eve.
