It's pretty well written but there's a little too much mystery box for me to really enjoy it.

. . . even if it stars Jeffrey Tambor, who is now being airbrushed out of the promotional materials.
That would be the best sick joke ever. One poster featuring him with the cast and the same one where he's been removed.

Early reviews of A Wrinkle In Time are not encouraging. They're all saying basically the same thing: everything in the movie is Hollywood beautiful and Hollywood platitudinous. I'll see it, of course, but it's sounding more and more like basically DuVernay made a different movie and pasted the title of "A Wrinkle In Time" on it.

Not interested in watching, but anything that drags the Kennedys through the mud is fine by me.

I'm *generally* not a big fan of biopics, and like most specialized fields of endeavor movies usually reduce the classical music biz to stereotyped cliches, but still, he's an icon of american music so... And I'd far rather he do this than remake West Side Story :roll:

It should be said in Pol Pot's defense that he would have killed many more people if he'd had more people to kill.

If it doesn’t include Bernstein saying “right on!” in the most cringey way possible when a Black Panther dumps a bunch of guns on the table and says some brothers are thinking about a revolution, it’s not going to be complete.

I was around for the original version.

I have no interest in the remake.

That doesn't actually look bad.

Everyone involved should still be killed though.
