    Yes, it was a mess. Also, the theme of cruelty to others (animals, species, etc.) was understated: the connection between manipulating animals (chimps, horses) with come-uppance via the aliens at the wild west/alien show just failed to resonate.

    🤣 A robust critique! Like how you played this. Really smart.

  • Veronica Coldiron6 months ago

    I wholeheartedly endorse this critique.

  • Cendrine Marrouat6 months ago

    I tried to like the movie, but I still wonder what I watched. It made zero sense. This movie made zero sense. Love your review!

  • Cathy holmes6 months ago

    Lol. Sounds great.

  • Sian N. Clutton6 months ago

    I haven't seen it and after your critique I don't think I shall! Funny stuff!

  • Grz Colm6 months ago

    It was so bizarre and uneven..right! I was entertained by a few parts but after it ended I was very disappointed - particularly as it had so much potential. I agree with a lot of what you’ve stated. I cannot remember exactly, but doing some research online it was supposed to have a subtext of commenting on the state of the film industry.. so a bit of an arty/horror film. It just didn’t land for me. You’ve provided a really apt, fun and creative Critique of the film. 👏😃

    Haven’t watched this (nor have I wanted to), but this critique is the funniest I’ve read so far. I feel I’d agree with it if I did watch the film. Now US on the other hand… that movie is incredible.

  • I disagree with you strongly, Lamar, yet appreciate your review. (Someone has to keep it from scoring 100 on Rotten Tomatoes, lol.)

  • Hahahahahhahahahahaha hilarious! This was such a creative approach!

  • Dana Stewart6 months ago

    Haha, the ratings system. You’re like Rotten Tomatoes but you’re much funnier

    Even though I liked the movie, you did a great critique

  • Oh wow I never heard of this before but this was a well written review

  • Jazzy 6 months ago

    What a great idea, scorecards! Have to say I loved the movie and the soundtrack 😂😩

  • J. S. Wade6 months ago

    Really like your scorecard Lamar. Good review 😎

    Bummer this movie didn’t do it for you! I rewatched it last week and must confess I loved it… but as someone who loves art history, I think I picked up on some referential things in the landscape shots and key images that brought me joy and weren’t super accessible. Which is not great for a big box office flick. Did you like Get Out?

  • Awesome 😎 Great job ❤️📝💯👍‼️

  • Real Poetic6 months ago

    Never had a root canal but I’m sure they’re painful as hell lol !! Lamar this is so funny. Thank you for saving me from watching this. I like Jordan Peele too though! Such a great actor. It appears from your critique that the plot itself fell short. Thanks for sharing your honest opinion.
