No offense, but almost everything you review is a negative to you.

You seem to have a high opinion...of your opinions.

If a show doesn't conform to the exact standards of how you want it to be, it isn't fitting to be on screen. You can never enjoy anything for what it is.

Must be a burden being such a literary.
What's a literary? And, actually, I hate "literary" fiction, as I'm a genre fan through and through. Good sci-fi is my jam, second only to good fantasy. Give me the original Conan movie; give me Alien (arguably horror). Give me good popcorn stuff like Lifeforce. I mean, where can you find a better space vampire movie with a hot former ballerina walking around full frontal the whole movie? Give me good humor, like just about all the Monty Python works. Give me a tense spy thriller like Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, which I just saw for the first time the other day. Give me schlocky Bond movies and good, serious, nasty Bond movies. You can give me Vietnam war movies, grimdark war movies, or pulpy war movies, just don't bore me with war movies (extra credit for catching the reference).

Actually, that's pretty well said, Chap: Not really worth the time to give a negative review. As an artist, I want folks to love or hate my work; the biggest slap to the face is indifference to it. Good damning review you gave there.
I did appreciate Chris Pratt in this one more than you did, however. And Yvonne, who they gave an interesting look. Definitely looked different than she did on Chuck.

To be fair, I'm sure Pratt got better as the movie went on. He was basically just sad sack from what I saw.

Was that Yvonne as his wife? If so, I definitely agree with you there. Loved her on chuck.

No she was in the future.

And he kinda was supposed to be a sad sack at the beginning.

Look up "literary snob," read the results and apply it to movies and TV, in your case.

I liked it for what it was… a silly action movie that more or less kept me entertained even though it had a hefty runtime.… and quite frankly, I think that was pretty much all it was trying to accomplish, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Oh, you meant literary SNOB! Gotcha. I didn't think anyone dense enough to think literary was supposed to be a noun there ;)

Heartbreak Ridge?

Right in one, sir! In other words, don't be Major Carrrnuttt.

Enjoyed the movie for what it was. Mindless summer popcorn action.

that said, I just can’t ever love a movie about time travel due to the irrational inconsistency loop they create.

Also, know what would be cool? If someone finally created killer aliens that don’t all look alike. That’s one of the things that made alien so cool - didn’t look like anything before or after. Every freaking alien looks somewhat similar now.

My son finally saw it and said it's a rip off of some aspects of Wreck It Ralf. Looking back, he's right!
