    Watched the Matrix yesterday. I’d give it 3/5. About what I was expecting. Enjoyed the first hour or so when it’s quite self-reverential and takes the tinkle out of itself, I was intrigued and wondered where it was going. Then the second half slips into formulaic territory. I’d say it’s better than the last one but that’s not saying much. Such a shame that the first was so groundbreaking technically, was an original idea and introduced a tricky premise in a concise manner that made sense, but the two sequels that followed just didn’t live up to the first one and were too pretentious and confusing. Resurrections isn’t as pretentious but it doesn’t do anything new.

    Oh did anyone else feel the ending was very woke? I know I bang on about PC and wokeism and I’m a moderate liberal but the virtue signalling is getting too much from Hollywood. Above all else I want great stories. If the plot requires a diverse cast and ideas then I’m fully on board and will support that but inclusion for the sake of it is just stupid. Rant over

    Don't Look Up?

    Each to their own I guess but it was a perfect allegory for the climate issue IMHO.

    Worst movie I've seen this year and that's saying something. Everything about it is horrendous. It's just a collection of random scenes where the only purpose is to try to shock the viewer, which doesn't really work when everything is so non-sensical and over the top.

    I think it’s just their business model. They want to make as much content as they can, quantity over quality. They’d rather make 10 things that people sort of like than 1 or 2 things people really like. They make some of the best tv along with HBO, but Netflix films are pretty forgettable tbh. I’ve never seen a Netflix original film I’d give more than 4 stars out of 5 for.

    The satire was spot on tbf, but i felt that was to the detriment of the movie as it was quite jarring

    Saw it tonight and walked out halfway through. Dreadful film. Couldn’t care less about the characters or what happened in the end so decided to leave.

    Ah come on. The special effects, the action, the stunts were all quite groundbreaking at the time and often imitated immediately after.

    More than just the climate issue, I thought it was an excellent dark comedy take on a number of modern day issues.

    Ok just watched eternals. Understood the story. But have no idea what they were thinking when they wrote it. Was feige on holiday that week?

    Didn't work on any level. Wasn't awe inspiring, wasn't action, wasn't funny, wasn't a romance. Didn't advance the universe much, complicated it a bit Just meh. 2 and a half hours ov meh.

    Saw Don't Look Up last night.

    As many have said, very funny and great commentary on how the world is losing the battle against fudgewittery.

    I thought the climate allegory was reall clunky though - so bad that it pretty much ruined all that was good about the rest of it. My 8yo was in a school play last year about the environment that was more subtle. The special effects were non-existent and the acting left plenty to be desired, but it was a more subtle take than Hollywood managed.

    Definitely one of the worst MCU films so far. Think it needs to be binned.

    Don't Look Up is too long and too dumb. It's not even funny, just annoying.
