MAYBE WE SHOULD KISS TO BREAK THE TENSION
MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

Barbie and Ken!
Loved Roonbeth Marlander in this. Her performance was the best thing about this film. Everything else was typical post-90s Fincher — expertly shot and staged, but pretty boring to sit through, and given over to way too much Fincher worship by the media and fanbase. Soundtrack was good though. I basically thought the story itself was weak, so, I guess I can cross off the novel as something I want to read.
The ending was preposterous. And that’s saying something for a story full of preposterousessness.

Oh hi there, NFSW’ish obvs.
Will YOU be sticking around for the third season of AMC’s soap-opera-that-occasionally-remembers-its-a-survival-horror-show, The Walking Dread?
Or, are you like me, almost certain to sever all ties with/pull the plug on/let go of this simultaneously tense yet disappointing abortion? Did you, like me, wish for a pure zombie survival drama with no strings attached, but are instead torn between the far and-few-in between-thrilling scenarios and the gut-wrenching melodrama? Are you hoping for a quick and agonizing death for everyone on the show (with the exceptions of perhaps Daryl, Merle, Shane, Glenn and Maggie?) Do zombie children go to heaven? If a zombie falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it get stuck in mud? Just how many bullets does it take to kill off Carl? Whose baby is Lori pregnant with and, more importantly, if she were bit with child, would the infant be a hybrid of undead and living (but still extremely annoying owing to its mother)?
So many questions. Basically, can you stomach two more episodes before AMC remembers its place in the cable TV pantheon and showers us with the redemptive grace and love of Mad Men season 5?
The guy who brought us Resident Evil, among other abortions, delivered this shockingly competent action comedy adventure. The costumes?? Better than they have any reason to be in a B+ movie. The cast? Underused, but shockingly appropriate and fun. I mean, look at that lineup: how’d they manage to con Mads into this madness? Macfadyen? Yeah, okay he’s not exactly an action star - I mean, look at that sword fighting, it was pretty bad - but Darcy! I hope Luke Evans sneaks up more in future films (Immortals lolz) and Ray Stevenson needs to get back with Kevin McKidd forever; Milla is too pretty to be real; you know Christoph is just slumming it until his next major role and I still feel he could’ve Christoph’d this film SO MUCH MORE had he been given better direction.
Look, I know its supposed to be d’Artagnan’s story, but I came to watch the Musketeers. Where were the Musketeers! They were sidelined in their own movie. Ugh. Save for a pretty hilarious CGI’d shadowing effect at the Versailles scene with the airship, I thought this film actually looked the part of a Bruckheimer-funded AAA blockbuster. Except, you know, lacking more A-list talent and having some action sequences that would make Johnny Depp blush.
Highly recommended Surprisingly entertaining is what it is.
