  1. To Jlaw stans, anything that would question anything Jlaw related is "a mob."
  2. "Father Figure" is a brilliant pop song in an album that is, in my opinion, one of the finest pop albums of all time. 2016, please stop taking away our musical geniuses...(Bowie, Prince, GM).
  3. You do know that [allegedly] brilliant script =/= brilliant movie necessarily, right? Passengers is proof of this.
  4. I agree with all of that. But let's not forget that the muddled marketing did not do the movie any favors. Had this film's marketing team come up with an engaging, focused, compelling campaign, the film would be having a better opening. Awful marketing + overall crappy movie + horrifically problematic plot point potentially alienating some people + star's offensively immature behavior potentially alienating some people + Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's continued dominance = underwhelming opening.
  5. Imagine if this were as well received as Mad Max: Fury Road ?? I would not mind that at all.
  6. Not really. People have expressed their dislike for a particularly unsavory aspect of the plot, the pedestrian direction, and a toothless script. How Jlaw fans interpret that as "I was expecting an arthouse film" is beyond me.
  7. Absolutely nobody goes into a 160-million-dollar sci-fi film starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence (released in the lucrative holiday season to boot) expecting an arthouse film.
  8. Carmen Ejogo and Jusie Smollet?? I am intrigued.
  9. Great reviews. Looks good; is this supposed to go wide(r) at any point?
  10. The marketing was dreadful and it really made the film look incredibly generic and "hookless," so to speak. We were supposed to be compelled to buy a ticket The presence of the two stars? That alone was clearly not enough...
  11. I cannot believe that we don't have a Trump emoji!
  12. I am looking forward to what Cameron has in store for us! No other science fiction film since Avatar (not Gravity, not Interstellar, not The Martian, not The Arrival, not The Force Awakens, not Rogue One) has captured my imagination, my brain and my heart the way Cameron's epic did. I certainly enjoyed all of those (except Interstellar), but Avatar was indeed in a league of its own.
  13. Interesting article... (Don't click if you don't want to be spoiled...) Passengers' Plot Twist Has a Major Issue with : A sci-fi movie has real-world implications.
