Everything Everywhere All At Once- What are you people smoking?

This movie is horrible! Two hours and eighteen minutes of vomiting up nonsense capped off by a Razzie deserving performance by Jamie Lee Curtis. Why did this get any praise?

The culture is in arrested development, so juvenile junk gets praised.

It was a bit of light-hearted fun. Hardly worth getting your knickers in a twist about.

Thanks for telling me what to do, R2. How would I function without you?

I just watched it last night and thought it was fun. It was a bit too long, I agree, but kept my interest, and I don't think they were trying to be too serious with it, which was refreshing. I'm not normally into movies like this, so the ridiculousness of it helped.

Oh well, I liked it. Did you see the new Predator movie? That one was pretty good too. I have only watched three movies this year, and they were pretty good.

Thirty minutes in, I lost interest.

Any movie that is praised these days is guaranteed to be absolute shit.

Knives Out

Not that I would ever lower myself to actually watch this slop.

^I saw Knives Out after goading by my brother and it turns out it was actually really enjoyable. I haven't heard good things about the sequel though.

I figured out the who done it of Knives Out long before the ending. The costume gave the plot away

When did Jamie Lee Curtis become considered a “good actress?” Because clearly I was late in getting that memo.

Or is it more “I’ve been in the business long enough and never went away” and eventually if you never stop working people will think you’re “great” and a “legend?”

It's about 4 hours too long but other than that it's ok.

She’s an original nepo baby, R10. MeToo got people talking about Janet Leigh and Hitchcock again, so praising Jamie Lee feels like giving Leigh her flowers (as the kids say these days.) Doesn’t hurt that she’s married to Christopher Guest and has a trans kid and doesn’t stop talking about sobriety, so very au courant. Plus people really like those activia commercials.

Twenty minutes in, I started fast-forwarding. When I realized that it was nothing but a two hour non-stop battle of Crouching Tiger meets Being John Malkovich via Predator, I was done.

Jamie Lee gives a grotesque performance in EEAAO. Dumb that she’s even “in consideration.” Every supporting actress in She Said and Women Talking should be nominated before her.
