First Son, Film Critic

9 was like a sloppy mosaic. The director had lots of great pieces that were awesome to look at, but he didn’t put them together carefully.”

    oh that's so disappointing … if a kid is saying that, I doubt I want to see it. I had such high hopes, too!!

  2. Haven't seen it, but the trailer's been running ad nauseum during my King of the Hill reruns. The aesthetic seems to be ugliness for its own sake. Am I wrong?

    Ernie: The aesthetic is Generic Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland, with some Ecclesial Window Dressing thrown in — which is [SPOILER!] burned to the ground, for Important Symbolic Value.
    First Son: Nailed it. Now where's that New and Improved Ending?

  4. I liked the post that you put up and took down.
